Lissa studies in the Zen and Theravada Buddhism traditions and is particularly interested in the intersections of dharma, justice, and embodied radical care. Lissa is certified to teach mindfulness meditation, yoga, qigong, and interplay.

Lissa has over thirteen years of experience in nursing and mental health and is a somatic integrative mental health nurse practitioner. Lissa’s offerings include somatic-based psychotherapy, mindfulness movement/meditation, coaching, somatic anti-racism, communal and ancestral practices, psychopharmacology, and writing.

Lissa shares practices that are compassionate, social and racial justice-oriented, and trauma-responsive for the wellness and liberation of all beings. Lissa is particularly moved to work with populations less likely to have exposure or access to contemplative practices.
