Book Lisa as your Speaker

Lisa K. Boehm's engaging presentations will transform the way attendees think about managing life's challenges and how we can all work

together in difficult times.

Keynote: Out of the Darkness

After her daughter died, Lisa didn't know how she was going to continue on. Life as she knew it was over. She had every reason to quit on herself, her family, and her life. After months of darkness and contemplating suicide, Lisa crawled out of the hole of despair in order to support her family but mainly to help her son through the worst time of his life. 

Lisa’s captivating message empowers everyone dealing with trauma and challenging situations to find their way past the pain. She reminds her audience that resilience can be learned, and shares how she was able to change her life by changing her thoughts.

 

Because we all face traumatizing events in our lives, Lisa ensures that everyone leaves with an increased understanding of issues including mental illness, trauma, recovery, and wellness and how we can all become more resilient in our lives.

Find out what can happen when we change our thoughts and self-talk. Not only do we survive the worst that life can throw at us, but we can learn to live and thrive again.

 

Attendees will be empowered to:

  • Overcome self-limiting beliefs about healing and resilience

  • Manage their grief, loss, struggles, or perceived barriers

  • Carry on, no matter what life throws at them

Trauma Awareness Training - Handling Clients with Care

When someone dies,it's hard to know what to say or how to best support the family. Professionals of all kinds interact with the bereaved but many fear saying or doing the wrong thing. Some people handle this contact with grace and empathy and some miss the mark entirely, adding to the pain and frustration that accompanies the death of a loved one. 

Lisa offers an informative and educational presentation in which she shares

the interactions that helped her family after her daughter's death and ways that professionals can most effectively support and assist families with the difficulty of losing a loved one.
