Lisa Olivera is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Oakland, California. You might also call her a self-love encourager, a listening (like, TRULY listening) ear, an advocate for vulnerability, and a holder of space for hope and healing. Lisa believes we require less fixing and more accepting – less perfectionism and more good-enough – less criticism and more self-compassion. She supports people who want to feel more accepting of who they are and where they’re at in life, but feel suffocated by self-criticism, doubt, sadness, anxiety, overwhelm, or fear. Lisa serves not as an expert or know-it-all, but as a collaborative guide who values and deeply respects human beings for who they are and the wisdom they already have within. Lisa can be reached at [email protected], through her website, or through her Instagram account.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
