As a female professional, how much space is there in your life for what is most meaningful to you?

This website and blog is my starting point for helping you, the professional woman working in a stressful environment, Make Room For You.

Here, you will learn ways to feel more energized and engaged by your life, and your work. By sharing stories from my experience as a coach, lawyer, wife and mother, I will inspire and motivate you. I believe that in order to make this world a better place, we all must flourish. This flourishing starts with each of us working to be our best selves, so we can make more room for each other, our families and our communities. There's room for you here!

Helping Professional Women Make Room In Their Lives For What's Really Important To Them

Hi I’m Milisa!

My coaching practice focuses on professional women in high stress work environments, including physicians, accountants and lawyers and business women.  This niche is a natural fit for me, given my background as a lawyer.  I have “been there”, both on “Bay Street” and “in-house”, and I know that if I had had a coach like me back then, my well-being would have been vastly improved.   I offer my genuine interest and a wish to see my clients thrive and evolve in a way that they have designed using the coaching process where they need and want it. I have a passion for partnering with women to discover their values, their strengths, their passions, their wants and needs and their dreams. In light of these discoveries, I help clients clarify their goals and then to move on to attain them.     Read more about Milisa →

Why I Love Our Street Party

It’s one of my favourite days of the year – the day of our Annual Walmer Road Street Party. My husband and I moved on to the street into our third floor apartment when we were fresh young adults, back in 1994. (We later bought the house).   We heard about the party because neighbours were…

Game-Changing Questions for Family Life (Hint: fun is involved)

The book is Honey I Wrecked the Kids: When Yelling, Screaming, Threats, Bribes, Time-outs, Sticker Charts and Removing Privileges All Don’t Work by Alyson Schafer. I picked it up in a time of need…
