Liza Davis, Ph.D.
CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH
My background and training in psychology are important foundations for my work in health coaching. As an Integrative Health Coach, I am able to draw on my skills as a Counseling Psychologist who has worked as a Staff Psychologist and Professor on college campuses across the United States, from University of Florida to California State University, Long Beach, North Carolina State University, and Wake Tech.
Hanging out with people I love feeds my soul.
My immensely witty husband and two children keep life interesting. I am what they call a life-long learner - curious about everything and reading constantly.
Even though I do not have a musical bone in my body, I am learning to play the ukulele and have a blast singing “Let it Be” at the top of my lungs. Yoga is where I feel grounded and serene, but possibly my favorite place to be is biking the trails or enjoying the serenity of nature on my paddleboard.
My philosophy is that science matters. In implementing the research of behavioral change, we know that small, steady, and intentional steps towards goals create change. As my clients deepen their awareness of their personal values, it enables an opportunity to gain clarity of what is important. Change is more powerful and possible when
the motivation comes from within.
Working together to create a safe and trusting relationship with my clients allows for the hard work of vulnerable
self-reflection. This thought-provoking and creative process inspires my clients to identify obstacles and maximize
their personal and professional potential.
A vital part of the change process is goal setting. My clients work to set realistic goals each week leading towards change. In understanding the neuroscience of change, we now know that the repetition of steps towards our goals changes the actual functioning of our neural network. As these new neural connections are stimulated, it strengthens the likelihood of creating lifelong change.
