Meet Lisa Pulliam

Coach & Founder of

Elisa Pulliam, the founder of, helps individuals and groups arise, stabilize, and thrive. Lisa, as she prefers to be called, is passionate about simplifying the brain-body-relationship connection that shapes mindset and habits.

For over a decade, she has specialized in coaching women through life transitions and offering personal as well as professional development coaching and assessments to adults and teens. She also provides faith-based coaching for clients seeking to align a biblical worldview with their life purpose. In 2021, she added equine-assisted coaching and learning programs to her services, including wellness sessions for individuals of all ages, customized leadership training programs, and team-building workshops for groups and families.

Lisa is a certified Life Breakthrough Coach, Highlands Ability Battery Consultant, and Natural Lifemanship Trauma-Informed Equine Specialist and Coach. She is currently working on a Master's in Clinical Counseling in Trauma at Eastern University. Lisa is also the author of numerous books, including, Meet the New You, and a sought-after speaker.

Lisa has been riding horses since she was a little girl and discovered that competing at the college level was not as much fun as simply hanging out with the horses and her barn friends.  In July 2022, she took a leap of faith and adopted Kodiak Jack, a 2010 Off-the-Track Thoroughbred from Omega Horse Rescue. Together, they are learning the art of connection and the beauty of redemption as they grow their relationship one experience at a time.

When she’s not at the stables, she savors the time with her husband of 26 years, nearly all-grown-up children, and being entertained by her beloved Golden Retrievers.

Becoming StableMinded


Who doesn't want to be stable-minded? Yet more often than not, we live overwhelmed, stuck, and frustrated. We're battling anxiety, fear, hurt, shame, mental blocks, leadership challenges, relational conflicts, and more!  Instead of thriving, we are merely surviving from one crisis to the next. But it doesn't have to be this way!

Through working with hundreds of clients, both adolescents and adults, from around the world in the online space as well as in person, I am 100% convinced that the growth process is accessible to all.

The missing piece for most is understanding the brain-body-relationship connection that shapes mindset and habits.

When we don't understand why we do what we do, we can't make the changes necessary to stabilize our lives and enable us to thrive. 

That is why I developed the  A.R.I.S.E. Method, which simplifies the neuropsychological response to stress and trauma, with easy-to-remember steps guiding the journey into emotional, physical, and relational well-being.

Whether we work together online or at the stables in Honey Brook, PA, (because horses enable us to see ourselves in ways we normal disguise and deny) you will discover how to arise from whatever is holding you back, strategize the steps to stabilize your life today, and move boldly into thriving both personally and professionally! 

Yes, that is what it looks like when you become stable-minded!


What Other's Are Saying

Lisa McCartney, Therapist

Lisa gave me an invaluable experience working with her and Teddy. It was so special…the exposure and connection to a horse helped me to overcome some of my fear of horses and also made me aware of the times when fear shows up in my relationships and how I can navigate that in a healthier way.

Esther Littlefield, Business Owner

If you’re really having trouble making decisions or determining where you should be spending your time, a life coach might be a good option to help you find balance and direction. I’ve worked with Lisa Pulliam and I’ve been so blessed by her guidance and encouragement.

Noel and Mary
Mary Taylor, Personal Vision Coaching & Restorative Retreat Client

This experience is the beginning of becoming the person I want to be. The work we did with and without the horses gave me such insights into decisions I need/ want to make and a clearer sense of being. Lisa was able to identify and show me how I was being present. She guided me through activities that helped me identify past and present behaviors that have prevented me from making decisions. The stables are located in one of the most beautiful areas and just being there invites a sense of calm. I can’t say enough about this experience, for me, it’s the start of becoming a better me.

Margie Keith

I'd been wandering, without a real sense of purpose or direction since I graduated high school. There were so many things I wanted to do with my life that I couldn't figure out how to settle on one thing. Through coaching sessions and the Highlands Battery Assessment, Lisa facilitated the process of identifying my goals, resulting in moving to  Colorado and living the life I longed for.

Alida Barnes

It is not an overstatement to say that working with Lisa has changed my life! Lisa has a gentle, loving way of approaching our time together that challenges me and gives me actionable steps to move forward. She is not afraid to step into the hard places with me. I have learned to be vulnerable and insightful through coaching.

Why coaching and learning with horses?

The equine-assisted coaching and learning process may be hard to picture. How you can benefit from time with a horse?


Horses seek connection and safety as they respond to the environment. Their way of being and responding to us enables us to see our patterns and relationship style. As we process these interactions, we can gain insight and make changes in how we choose to live in this world and relate to others.


Take a few minutes to listen to this simple explanation about the process and how you could personally and professionally benefit from connecting with a horse and coach in a private session or group workshop.
