ICF New Mexico Board

Lisa BrewerPresident – Lisa Brewer

I’m passionate about eliminating the barriers that prevent people from reaching their potential. My approach is customized to each client’s goals, interests and strengths and provides structure, kindness and directness. I incorporate rigorously tested modalities with humor and caring. My clients come to celebrate who they are, shed limiting beliefs and mindsets, and practice self-compassion. Clients say I help them understand opportunities and challenges, change patterns, overcome obstacles, and live the life they were meant to live. I’m a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, Certified NLP Practioner, and have expertise in willpower, mindfulness, Positive Intelligence and Zero Pain Now coaching.

Why do you choose to serve as a leader for ICF New Mexico? I love creating and building things in collaboration with others. ICF New Mexico allows me to do that with kind, highly competent and dedicated professionals who become friends and trusted colleagues. An added perk is it has led to coaching opportunities and an expanded ability to refer.
