After 200 hours, I have exciting news to share!

After two learning-filled years and over 200 hours of coursework and training, I am excited to announce I am now offering my professional services as a personal coach.

Don’t worry! LET’S MAKE ROOM’s unique team-based home organizing, household editing and move management services are not going away. In fact, my team has made it possible for me to take my work to the next level.

I am making room for what matters most to me: Serving clients beyond the San Francisco Bay Area who want to find better ways to manage their lives with confidence and competence. (I will also have a new website soon just for my coaching but LET’S MAKE ROOM will still be here.)

So, what does this mean for you? 

Because I continue to manage LET’S MAKE ROOM’s projects, my coaching schedule is limited. However right now I am offering my coaching at a special “friends and family” rate and our first session together is FREE!

Skip to the end of this post to sign up for this no obligation, complimentary engagement session using this link but before you do, I’d like to share a story with you.

I launched LET’S MAKE ROOM in 2009 shortly after I discovered the power getting organized had in my own life. It literally set off a chain reaction in my brain that led me to start my own successful business.

Three years ago, when I turned 60, I realized I wanted to help my clients in a more personal and admittedly, less physical way. I had no idea what to do or where to start. After much internal brain wrangling, I found and sought the help of a wonderful coach named Christine Joseph, with whom I shared a similar background.

With Christine’s provocative questions, support and encouragement, I enrolled in my first coaching class … just to test the waters. As I advanced through the program as well as through my own personal experience as a coaching client, I discovered the value of coaching and the opening for change it gave me.

What is coaching?

Coaching is an extraordinary, co-created relationship between a trained practitioner and an individual (or group) rooted in the science of neurobiology.

With the help of a coach, your self-awareness and wisdom increases.  You see how existing perceptions you hold can stifle or empower you.  Most importantly you receive the gift of being heard, seen and understood.

You learn to be more curious and less self-critical. These new insights give you the power to make different choices in your life.

I like to say in coaching, you go from feeling like a feather in the wind to being the wind itself. Strong, powerful, and impactful. 

The coach-client relationship starts from the assumption that you are the expert about yourself and as your coach I am more like an experienced field guide helping you find your way forward. 

In contrast to psychotherapy, which enhances your ability to function emotionally or mentally, personal coaching focuses on your values, perceptions, goals and potential.  It is assumed that you are inherently able to function in your everyday life or have the ability to do so.

Let’s Chat

I encourage you to learn more about coaching by scheduling a complimentary “engagement” session with me. 

I have lots of resources and even though the engagement session is free, I want it to be worth your time!

Here’s what you can expect during our 45-minute session:

  • Briefly share what’s on your mind – what made you book the session?
  • Learn how we work together and what I will request from you in advance to enhance our coaching relationship.
  • Receive the information you need to decide whether coaching is right for you and if not, where else you could go for help.  (E.g., ADHD coach, a therapist, a career counselor, etc.)

All coaching appointments are virtual, via Zoom or phone. If you’re curious, I want to make the time for you.

I can’t say enough about how grateful I am to those of you who have supported me over these past 14 years running LET’S MAKE ROOM.  Even if you’re not seeking coaching right now, I’d love to hear from you so I can thank you for being a part of my community.

With deep appreciation,

Lis McKinley, M.A., CPO® APC* Candidate
