When Lisa’s son was diagnosed with autism at age 3 ½, she began a passionate quest comprised of research, education and hands-on experience, creating a program that ultimately led to the remediation of her son’s autism. Now, at age 22, he is considered indistinguishable from his peers! She has taken this life-learning, coupled with a Master’s Degree in Child and Adolescent Developmental Psychology, a Master’s and Doctorate in Metaphysics and Transpersonal Counseling, certification in Family Effectiveness Training, and as a Neurodevelopmentalist to assist other families. Her life mission is to share this eclectic experience and knowledge to help parents to parent consciously and holistically. She works with families of all kinds to create a business model for parenting with a program known as ESP (Effective Strategies for Parenting) and teaches CPS (Conscious Parenting Strategies) for effective parenting. Lisa believes that all behavior is a language and teaches parents to interpret this language. She also believes that effective strategies must incorporate the child’s mind, body and spirit to create strong efficacy and self-esteem. These integrated practices create a whole child who is “monster-proof” for life! Lisa Smith, Ph.D has authored 8 books, speaks around the country about Parenting On Purpose and is available for individual consultation.
