Life. What a journey it is!
We all face adversity, challenges, change, and seemingly impossible obstacles at times, I’m sure you’ll agree.
In many ways, life is a continual transition.
My motto: when faced with adversity, challenges, or obstacles you can either stay stuck in it and allow it to paralyze you or rise through it and persevere.
I VOTE TO PERSEVERE!
My name is Lisa Gianakakis.
I am a Certified Holistic Health & Wellness Coach and Board Certified with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
I assist individuals on their journey through life.
I am your assistant, your confidant, your cheerleader, your inspiration, your driving force of wisdom, and most importantly, a guide helping you to achieve your goals!
Life is challenging and involves many changes & transitions. In some ways, life is like a game and you just have to know how to play it.
Growing up there were two things I loved to do, eat and spend time cooking with my YiaYia Vi. Needless to say, growing up I was a chubby kid, always struggling with my weight and being teased by others. I had no self-confidence, no self-esteem and I wasn’t happy with myself. I was 150 lbs in Jr. High and when I gave birth to my son at age 29, I was a whopping 210 lbs. Oh my goodness I was huge. I was always on a diet, using whatever was out there to lose the weight, never being able to keep the weight off. My lack of self-confidence, and no self-esteem caused me to shy away at social gatherings. I made unhealthy lifestyle choices & decisions for myself, and I always listened and did what others would say or suggest not listening and believing in myself.
Cooking with YiaYia, I developed a love for herbs, spices, oils, and fragrances. When I was young, my YiaYia gave me a special gift, it was a perfume kit. Little did I know, this special gift become a big part of my life. My heritage is half Greek, half Italian, and the herbs, spices, oils, and fragrances of the Mediterranean are what drives my Soul. I intuitively knew there was more to these delicious condiments other than just cooking with them. I learned of the medicinal and healing effects, of those lovely condiments, which I always carry with me on my journey through life and use daily.
I have been through many of my life’s adversities, obstacles, and challenges. At age 40 I lost all my money and home due to poor business and personal choices. At age 53 I went through a horrific divorce losing the home I lived in, which was my YiaYia’s home that I loved. I’ve had to rewrite my life’s story twice in my life so far and what I’ve learned is, that life’s adversities, obstacles, and challenges Are Opportunities in disguise once you look beyond the illusion and smoke & mirrors.
I have spent the past 35 years dedicating myself to personal and professional growth, persevering through many of my life’s adversities and struggles. It wasn’t easy. Each day I learn more about how to play the game of life and to take the positive from each obstacle I encounter and apply it forward.
As an Entrepreneur I owned and co-owned a restaurant and real estate management company. I currently own a retail business called Body Sense that specializes in custom blending bath, body and spa products with essential oils and fragrance oils. The special gift my YiaYia gave me ~ who knew! For over 10 years I have been a Project Manager for a residential construction company. Building life is my forte!
My life’s journey has also led me to become a Certified Holistic Health & Wellness Coach and Board Certified with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
I assist people in creating a happier, healthier life for themselves. At 55 years old, I am in the best health and physical shape of my life. I am happy, free and I eat whatever I want. I awake each morning knowing that this is my life to experience whatever I choose. I am trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and nutritional values. My specialty is helping you build the life you want by making the connection between happiness, wellness, balance, choice, and change; and to find a therapeutic “balance” between the health of your body, mind & soul, and like me, you too can achieve your happiness and transformation.
As I continue to thrive and learn, I share my the tools and resources I use, in the hopes that it may help you overcome your adversities, and what you struggle with in life.
Everyone has a story. We are all the same.
