Meet Dr. Lisa
Welcome to my digital world of creating a healthy and thriving family. I am a chiropractor, nutritionist, author, and crusader for families with the Autism Spectrum Disorders. I am passionate about YOUR FAMILY and helping you build the healthy and happy balanced life with Autism Spectrum Disorders that you desire.
This is the place where I share my deepest experiences and knowledge about how to create Autism Spectrum breakthroughs in school, home and nutrition.
I will transform you into an Autism Spectrum parent who is confident in overcoming, social, behavioral, academic and nutritional challenges.
I Was Simply Being Me and THEN…
I have been blessed with the gift to help thousands of patients reclaim their health with chiropractic and nutrition, but nothing prepared me for having a beautiful son with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Shortly after he was born, I suddenly became a person without the answers on how to help him and our family. I painfully watched my son struggle with severe sensory, attention, motor, social and behavioral issues within our home and at school.
I cried myself to sleep every night, argued with just about everyone, and desperately tried to create harmony and peace for my family until one day I realized I had to BE THE CHANGE and advocate for my son and families like ours. I utilized my knowledge of neurology, chiropractic, nutrition and living a health lifestyle and intertwined the implementation of creative adaptive strategies within the home and classroom. I jumped headfirst into being a crusader for families like ours and 12 years later, I am on fire! Best thing ever…
My journey has changed my family’s life forever and now, it can transform yours!
I am paying it forward and igniting a global awareness of helping families with Autism Spectrum Disorders. This passionate mission is based on mindfulness on how we treat, speak and handle our families and children both at home and in school. It is globally empowering parents like YOU to feel the fire and excitement of knowing YOU CAN and WILL create Autism Spectrum breakthroughs for your family so you child can shine!
Parents are discovering my website, office and free Autism Spectrum Support Group and learning how to to handle common pediatric health issues such as picky eating, ear infections, sinus/allergies, weight problems, digestive issues, and high cholesterol. They are overcoming neurological barriers and challenges related to Autism Spectrum Disorders. They are also buying my book and hiring me to help advocate so they can bridge academic and behavioral gaps between home and school.
Being a mother of a gorgeous boy with Autism Spectrum Disorders has created a world blessed with many children just like him. My world at home is filled with similar friends and families and my practice is expanding with families just like ours. Motherhood entwined within the world of Autism Spectrum Disorders has changed me beautifully, entirely and amazingly. I have become more compassionate and patient. I no longer am quick to judge another person. Instead, I have learned to be very mindful of my thoughts, words and actions towards others. My son has taught me to embrace every opportunity to lean in and help others who are OVERTILTED, overwhelmed and simply, lost.
Over the past 12 years of helping my son overcome many ASD challenged, I realized that implementing successful strategies is KEY in the hellacious road of creating harmony within the home and school.
I have written two inspiring popular self-help books and created free Autism Support Groups for you to reclaim your family’s health and restore balance in your life.
Perhaps one is right for you? Let’s take a look at these goodies!
