Hi ! I’m Lisa O’Brien

I’m so glad you stopped in for a visit. My door is always open to friends and conversations. I love to create spaces in relationship where people flourish and grow. I hope as you look around my virtual house, you’re able to make yourself comfortable, feel at home, and get what you need.

If you were sitting on my couch with me now, a cup of something warm in your hand, I would settle into a friendly conversation about normal every day things. I would tell you about my family. I would tell you that my husband and I have been married for 25 years. I might share some of the stories about how some of those years have been hilarious, some difficult, some beautiful, and a few painful. I would tell you that a quarter of a century in, he is still my best friend and the person who makes me laugh through every crazy turn of this human journey. My face would light up at the chance to tell you about the two amazing souls that I get to call my kids who are at the end of their teenage years and staring adulthood square in the eyes. I would tell you a variety of stories about how they have been my greatest teachers and taught me more about life than I will ever teach them. I wouldn’t have to tell you about my silly chihuahua or my fat cat, cause they would have already crawled up in your lap to welcome you and connect.

This is the point in the introduction where marketers, business managers, and experts want me to share my CV with you. But that feels a bit boring and no fun at all really. (If you are interested in that conversation, feel free to check out my Linked In page.) If you were still sitting with me on my couch, having had a refill of your warm mug, I would tell you about the stuff I love to do in the world that some people call work. I would tell you about how much I love traveling transformational journeys with the beautiful people who invite me to be their coach. I would share with you my passion for offering spiritual direction to the amazing pastors, leaders, and teams that boldly seek change. I would share with you my absolute love, as an extrovert, for speaking contemplative, motivational, and relational truths to people all over the world. And I would tell you about my crazy, hysterical, painful, messy, and enjoyable journey as an author.

I’m really glad you stopped in for a visit. My door is always open to you! Linger for a while, gather some inspiration, find some hope, and uncover some mysteries here in this space that we now share

I was at a critical point in my journey when Lisa and I began working together. Her encouragement, insight, and creativity is brilliant. Lisa knows how to get to the good stuff. She has the ability to see deep within and call forth the best in her clients.


I have been meeting with Lisa for the past two months. She is very easy to work with and provides such discernment and insight into matters of one’s spiritual journey. I have been experiencing life-giving transformation with her direction!


Lisa is a tremendous encouragement to me. It’s interesting though because it’s not in the traditional sense of encouragement. It’s not the kind of drivel offered through kitschy sayings and artificial compliments. Lisa offers encouragement by leading me to truth, getting me in touch with hope and challenging me to be my best self. When I’m truly and fully with her in coaching, I’m the beautiful and wonderfully-made person I’ve thought was just a hoax – not because she says that I am, but because Lisa leads me to a place where I can find my best self..where I can be her.


I had the privilege of training with Lisa over a 6 month period as part of the Coaches Training Institute Coach program. Lisa is approachable and demonstrates a genuine desire to help others discover and move toward whatever is next in their lives. I highly recommend Lisa as a coach, spiritual guide and mentor for anyone looking to grow personally and professionally.


Lisa is all about people! She strives to find each person’s true need and goes after it with a compassionate and giving heart. She has an intense desire to help others break free from anything that may be holding them back from being the real person they were created to be. She just loves people where they are at and has an authentic calling to serve them.


Lisa walked me through a profound season of exploration and change, helping guide me towards personal freedom and stepping into the person I was created to be. She has the gifts of discernment and wisdom that are a rare find, and she truly fights for the freedom of those she leads. She is the ideal coach for anyone seeking truth and desiring to connect with God’s heart. I continue to use the tools she provided on a daily basis, and give her the highest recommendation. Do not waste a minute reaching out to her.


I had the honor of working with Lisa during our Co-Active Coach Training program with The Coaches Training Institute. Lisa is a wonderful listener with deep intuition, insight, and the ability to ask powerful questions to draw out peoples’ innate wisdom. I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a powerful coach or spiritual director.
