“Changing the focus of my career was super scary, and something I had to just jump into. I jumped into the wild blue of changing, and was delighted to be caught by Lasara’s net. I have made such wild progress–beyond what I imagined. Quick new ways of thinking about things–like; this isn’t hard, I can just DO this!”
— Ariel Gore, author, teacher, entrepreneur, author of How to Become a Famous Writer Before You’re Dead, Bluebird: Women and the New Psychology of Happiness, and numerous other books, and founding editor of HipMama magazine
“I am so grateful to Lasara for working with me on the book proposal. She was able to guide me through the process, edit the materials I sent to her, and help me to shape the ideas I had for the book into a marketable book project. I called her my ‘book doula’ and raved to folks afterwards about how much easier it was to think through a rather intimidating process of writing a book proposal into a process where I felt supported, challenged and inspired. Thanks Lasara!”
— Mai‘a Williams, author
“Lasara’s direct and intuitive approach to goal setting and task management have been extremely motivating for me and have helped me to create a plan for getting my massage business tracking the way I would like to see it. In addition, she took the added time to help me work through any blocks that came up along the way, teaching me tools that I can use in the future should I encounter areas of difficulty.
Lasara also encouraged me to start budgeting personally as one of the steps to getting my business finances on track, and that has helped me with setting personal financial goals (getting out of debt, building good credit, starting a savings). I can honestly say that without that nudge from her I would not be using the tools I am now to better my position financially, which will in turn allow me to invest more dollars into my business.
Since beginning my work with Lasara six weeks ago, I have partnered with a graphic designer to rebrand my business, launched a new website, and created a solid plan for generating leads as well as added some useful skills for client retention.
The time and money invested in coaching with Lasara has already more than paid for itself. I highly recommend her services to anyone needing some guidance or an extra push in the right direction! ”

“Lasara provides a great foundation of support. She’s helped me to understand what I value the most and how to organize my time within that. Her balanced insights have given me the sanity I was needing to manage my career, my life and my relationship. I’m feeling excited to be starting on my third coaching cycle with her.“
— Marta D., Entrepreneur, San Diego (now in her fourth cycle, starting her fifth!)
“As a homo flexible fat chick I have to say that Lasara and I were able to make progress in areas that I hadn’t been able to touch with other modalities. I feel like counselors generally have the goal of getting me to a serenity via not thinking and other support groups – ok twelve step specifically in my experience – encourage you to abandon your personal quirks in favor of a pat set of beliefs.
Working with Lasara helped me to accept my desires and claim my sovereignty as a human and then move toward those desires in the most compassionate way I could. Sometimes that is by really pushing myself. Sometimes it is by having lots of patience. Sometimes it’s about enacting practical solutions that had not occurred to me. Rarely have I experienced such a deep wisdom and intuition coupled with a humility and lack of judgement in a person who has really studied and done the work and training that would rightfully earn her a superior attitude!!! She is really gifted.”
— Jennifer Laine Proctor, Long Beach, CA, singer and entrepreneur
“My first interactions with Lasara were in a pair of group workshops, in which she participated and led with graceful authority and was impressively diplomatic and efficient in getting a spectrum of group members’ voices heard and needs met. This led to my Skyping with her for a coaching session before what would have been a stressful job resignation.
Even though I knew what I wanted, I was very unsure of how to express myself and I was carrying a lot of guilt and nervousness about leaving a job with a company I had enjoyed working for; Lasara helped ground me by working through my talking points and pinpointing which aspects were causing me the most stress. From there she helped me reframe my thinking about this major life choice so that I could approach the negotiation with confidence and create a mutually respectful environment between me and my employer.
I also participated in one of Lasara’s month-long group programs, in which she brought the same principles of diplomacy, sensitivity and directness to her facilitation of a diverse group of women working on highly personal issues. In addition to her effective facilitation style, Lasara brings much warmth, humor and empathy to all of her work. I have continued to benefit from her individual and group programs and look forward to working and playing with her more in the future.”

“I just finished working with this amazing woman for 90 days! What a blessing she was to my life and most importantly this next stage of my Life’s Journey! Lasara has amazing insight and wisdom and every online meeting was eye opening and so enriching for me. Our meetings were always spent focusing on exactly what I needed and without saying too much, she was able to pinpoint where she saw my areas of opportunities and it was always done with such love and grace. I am forever grateful. Please….if you’ve been even considering working with a mentor/coach take Lasara up on this opportunity. If you connect, I promise you will not regret you did.”
— Cindy “Syndie” Schoonmaker, Store Manager, Encinitas, CA
“Coaching with Lasara is not to be missed! It is a pleasurable, down-to-earth chat with a good friend, at the same time that it is deeply healing and therapeutic. Lasara’s holistic approach honors the connection between mind, body, and spirit in the process of personal change and growth. On top of that, Lasara herself is as fun and fabulous as she is wise and caring! My partner and I gave one another a coaching session as a honeymoon gift, and we could not have chosen a better way to start the adventure of married life. This was a fantastic experience that we will surely repeat. If you are considering this, stop considering and DO IT – the results will be even better than you imagine!“
— Amy and Mari (Chicago, IL)
“Lasara is patient and insightful. I did a kick-start session with her that helped me clarify some of my hopes and fears, and move forward into manifesting solid results.”
