We all live perfectly imperfect lives, which give us each our special detail, and uniqueness. Yet due to circumstances, sometimes we need support to move forward to our best selves/family. When life feels out of balance, I am here to help you find solutions that work for you. My time is your time, and I will work with you to resolve immediate struggles, and empower you to achieve your goals.

 

There are few places where we can be fully understood and make sense of our lives. Life can take us in directions we did not anticipate, and we may need a reflective and accepting environment to reconnect to our true selves. Whether there are small stressors, relationship challenges, life decisions, or just “feeling stuck”, therapy is an environment that is dedicated to feeling and coping better. Together we can build an authentic relationship where you feel safe, validated, and empowered to explore and confront those challenges. 

 

I believe that my role as an agent of change is be a catalyst for the wisdom that already exists within each person. Through a collaborative, relationship-based approach each person can explore their personal understanding of a fulfilling life.

About me. 

Animal Lover, Rainy Weather Lover, Passionate World Traveler, Beach Enthusiast, Nature Wonderer, Art Appreciator

My name is Alisa but most call me Aussie- probably because they forget my name after 5 minutes like most of us! Growing up in Australia, my passion for travel and curiosity to meet new people has helped me gain understanding and love for humans all over the world. Fun fact: I have been working as a hairdresser for over 18 years! That is where I found a passion in talking and helping people. I channeled my passion to help others into another profession. I completed my bachelor’s degree in Applied Social Science and later earned my Master of Counseling. I have been a counselor, motivational speaker and group facilitator at various locations for almost a decade. My life and professional journey inevitably led me to becoming a Certified Life Coach. I fully embrace the passion within myself to help individuals with their journey life.

In today’s world it seems everyone is talking and no one is listening to others or themselves, and that is what I am here for. I am here for you to release your inner dialogue and help you find your path in life while experiencing healthier interpersonal relationships with others, reach goals and feel content within yourself.

TESTIMONIALS

I would like to extend my appreciation for everything Alisa has done for us. We’ve both learned a lot from our sessions and hopefully will utilize those skills in the future.

Alisa gives such non-biased opinions and  useful advice. I don't feel judged or "less than". She has been a wonderful source of support.

I just want to say thank you and how much I appreciated our time together. I continue to grow, day by day, and I have learned so much working with Alisa the past few weeks. I will forever be grateful 

Ms. Alisa Harp was extremely responsive and helpful for my husband and I. We both felt very heard throughout our sessions and overall feel like we have tools we didn’t have beforehand. Thank you so much!

We are so happy with you and the process! 

Our first experience with Alisa was great! We felt so comfortable and heard.
