Meet your Coach and Guide:

Hi, I’m Lisa Cohen—and I’m an EXPERT at settling.

Even though I have more than 20 years of personal expertise in life transitions and career change, and many years of experience in supporting others in their dream pursuits…

I also have plenty of experience in settling in areas of life in the past that I’ve regretted.

Because I lived that way for years, both before and after my MS diagnosis.

I know what it feels like to settle in life and watch each day pass, wondering whether I wouldn’t have future opportunities for the life I secretly hoped for…

I also know how it feels to sacrifice parts of my life for the sake of career or other goals because I thought I didn’t “get” to have both the goal and a fully enjoyable life.

I remember justifying the settling by thinking I was fortunate to still be able to achieve at all, so I should just suck it up and try to quiet the gnawing longing for something more and feelings that I was missing out.

I’ve had my share of regrets and “shoulda/coulda/wouldas” before, so I know how painful and lousy those feel.

BUT..Most important, I know how GREAT it feels to finally STOP settling and start showing up in life in ways that I love because I committed to figuring out how to give myself that gift even while living with MS.

In my own journey, I learned that to show up in life in ways that you love, you first have to step into that version of yourself that will ALLOW you to do that.

After much research, investing in coaching for myself, a ton of self-reflection, and lots of getting it wrong, I found the mindset makeovers and real-world action steps that worked to get me to that next version of myself.

Now, as a certified life coach, I’m committed to helping you do the same, so you can experience the joy and relief that come with:

  • Being able to smile about your life now, and
  • Knowing you’re creating a life you can look back on with satisfaction in the future

What I Do

I specialize in helping you show up in more of life in ways that you love so you can create more of the delicious and satisfying life experiences you’d love to have.



How I Do It

My signature Red Lipstick Life system helps you to master how you show up in life, so you can have more enjoyment and satisfaction without burning yourself out.

This is not “woo-woo” stuff that you can find everywhere on the Internet. I developed this system with real-world action steps based on what finally helped me to achieve my own transformation.

I have both a group coaching program and private 1-on-1 options available to suit your coaching preference.



What Makes Me Different

I believe that women living with chronic illnesses already and still have the power to captivate, fascinate, magnetize, enthrall, ignite passion, and wrap the world around their finger if they want to—without having to sacrifice their quality of life to do it.  They just might need some help to recognize, unlock, and activate that power.

I also provide an alternative to the “usual” support resources that are around. If you haven’t left other support options feeling empowered or simply feel like they haven’t been a “fit” for you, then we might be a match.


Ask Yourself These Questions:

  • Do you want to live a more intentional and enjoyable life not merely driven by your chronic illness, work schedule, or To-Do list?
  • Do you want to feel more confident all-around?
  • Do you want to finally start creating those life experiences you’ve been dreaming about?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions and would love to improve on any of these areas, then invite you to work with me.
