“Liz is one of the sweetest energies I've encountered. I came to her for creative consulting after a recent move to focus more on a heart lead life. With my own mental blocks I'd let a very important side of my self grow cobwebs. She gave me very insightful tools to combat my own stumping.  Liz will help you see your creative child, and then give you the tools to nourish that child. We are responsible for our mental health, and it's easy to forget that purpose. Thank you for the tools!! I am already working on building a new infrastructure that will let me lean into my creative side, and live a more fulfilled life. We are who we are, pure joy comes from embracing this. Thank you Liz, your help is invaluable. Thank you for sharing your spirit and I look forward to my next opportunity to work with you. Go see her folks!! You won't be disappointed.”   – Chante, visual artist
