Lisa Dalton    coach. speaker. author.

"I found Lisa 8 years ago when I was looking for someone that would help me move toward my future, not dissect every bit of my past and childhood.  I was all aboard the hot mess express and it had crashed both literally and figuratively. I was in my mid-twenties and needed help navigating life and moving from partying college student to adulthood.  I had low self-esteem and my life choices had reflected that.  Talking and working with Lisa changed my life dramatically.  She made me feel so comfortable with her great sense of humor and nonjudgmental personality.  Within our work together, I gained control of my drinking, made better personal and relationship choices, regained my family’s trust, worked through social anxiety, completed a master's degree and most importantly learned to LOVE MYSELF." ~Special Education Teacher, Hobart, IN

"I met Lisa about 9 years ago at a time when I needed guidance and direction.  With Lisa, I did the work that I needed to live my dreams and make them a reality.Lisa will tell you the truth, and hold you accountable to the results you are looking for in your life.  I was able to grow up in a sense, take courageous risks and open myself to a world of possibilities.  I earned my master's, made better relationship choices, and have taken control of my destiny.I still employ all the skills learned with Lisa and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to make a positive difference in their life. Lisa is truly inspirational as she herself lives her own dreams.Thank you, Lisa, for the lessons learned." ~School Principal, Chicago, IL

"I achieved amazing goals with Lisa as my coach; published a book, grew my business, took exquisite care of myself and entered into the most amazing relationship where I continue to love, learn and grow.  I was encouraged and challenged.  Lisa is a great coach and an amazing human being."  ~Business owner and author, Buffalo, NY

"Lisa has been helping me navigate my career and personal life for a decade.  Through new ventures, relocations and relationship changes Lisa has provided a constant, realistic perspective.  You feel the love that she shares without feeling coddled. She is going to ask you the hard questions, tell you the truth (even when you don't want to hear it) and celebrate you to the fullest degree. Lisa's goal in life seems to be to make those around her achieve the greatest happiness.  Whether that is professional or personal, she will help you find the path to meet your individual goals." ~Designer, Charlotte, NC

"The value of my coaching experience has been priceless. The depth of knowledge, awareness and insight into my personal needs and desires was holistically balanced with the emotional intelligence of my coach, Lisa Dalton. I am amazed at my own excitement during and after the coaching calls and feel 100% empowered by the experience. As someone who has done a lot of personal work and worked with many practitioners on guiding me to the Life I Want, never have I met anyone who mirrored myself to me in an exquisite way as Lisa has."

I have to write a heartfelt thanks for all the work we did together, Lisa. It has made such a difference in how I have framed every day since then. I had no idea how I had put myself down and never let myself enjoy my accomplishments. Now I have set goals, and I am open and willing to put dates to them because now I come from a place of knowing I can reach them! Thank you for all your help – it was truly inspiring!” ~Elementary school teacher, Chicago IL
"I came to Lisa after two failed attempts at working with a life coach. I knew the minute I saw her profile we would work well together and our conversations confirmed my instincts.  Now all I can say is THANK YOU!  For understanding who I am, for holding me accountable and keeping me on course, for lifting me up and knowing your stuff.  Your coaching rocks!"  ~ Sales Executive, Washington, DC

"How your gentle confrontation concerning my physical pain, my depression over aging, my resistance to giving up my sense of power in exchange for the joy of new self expression, slowly and surely gave me more confidence to move forward in a positive and graceful way. Now, as I seek purpose and happiness in this continuing journey of my life, and share my god-given talents, I thank you, Lisa, for being a big part of my emergence as a realized woman" ~ Jazz artist, Sausalito, CA
