About Liza

I've had quite the journey so far.  From wife and mother, to special education teacher and consultant, to ministry leader, mentor, pastor and trainer (whew)!  The last two decades of rich life experience have brought me to this point of being an Emotional Health Coach and Certified T.R.E® Provider. 


Emotional Health Coach &
Certified T.R.E.® Provider


I've learned so much - a lot of it the hard way.  I'm sure you know what I mean. 


How amazing would it be if you were able to learn in months what took me YEARS to figure out?!?


Throughout the years, I've been able to experience so much emotional freedom and also help others experience the same.  I want to see that for you as well!  For you to live a life RELEASED from burdens and trauma of the past or stress about the future. 

More of the nitty-gritty:
  • Certified Tension and trauma Releasing Exercises Facilitator.  (I'm the only registered T.R.E. Provider in South Dakota!)

  • Trained IFS Practitioner, Level 1 Internal Family Systems through the IFS Institute

  • Additional courses or training in:

    • Mental Health Coach Certification

    • Coaching for Self-Leadership (Internal Family Systems Institute)

    • Somatic Approaches to Healing Trauma

    • Trauma-focused Advanced Inner Healing Training

    • T.R.E. for Kids

    • IFS for Teens

  • Member of the Alternative Balance Professional Group.

  • Masters in Special Education with an emphasis in Behavior Disorders.

  • Former Autism Team Leader and supervisor of Applied Behavioral Analysis Program, with frequent focus on helping children with autism and sensory processing disorders to help regulate their nervous systems. 

  • Former ministry leader with extensive experience:

    • building and leading teams,

    • developing people into strong leaders,

    • creating effective programs,

    • mentoring and caring for people's hearts,

    • coaching & training.

  • Been there, done that experience.  What I coach on, I've discovered and developed out of personal experience as I've walked through:

    • A nervous system that was stuck in fight/flight/freeze for many years

    • Anxiety and depression

    • Burnout

    • PTSD

Even more than my professional experience, my personal experience drives me to want to teach and encourage others on what I've learned about emotional health.  Reach out and let's walk this journey of emotional health together!
