About Lisa

I have been teaching undergraduate-level courses since 2008. I hold an MS in neuroscience from Columbia University, and an MA in general psychology from the City College of New York. I have focused my research and teaching in sexuality and gender, having taught courses surrounding themes of sexuality, and sexual identity expression, gender identities, feminism, polyamory, and sex positive approaches to dating and relationships. In more recent years I've focused on advocating self care and self love, within a feminist framework. My coaching work is infused with my teaching practices, as I often create journaling exercises for clients to work through in between sessions. 

As a mindfulness coach, I bring my wealth of skills and knowledge directly to individuals and couples interested in personal growth, especially those struggling with self care and self love. Often this work involves building confidence, establishing and holding better boundaries, improved emotional regulation and awareness, and being more intentional. 

I work with my clients to develop their personal goals, and a plan to hold them accountable to those goals.

I hold a space for a person to explore who they are - their beliefs and behaviors - and examine how this may be different from who they want to be, and what they can do about it!
