Kimochis...Toys With Feelings Inside®: Kimochi (KEY.MO.CHEE) means "feeling" in Japanese. Children sometimes have strong feelings that can result in challenging behaviors. Educators, therapists, and parents use Kimochis® characters and feelings as a creative and playful way to help children learn to identify and express their feelings and work through challenging moments. Each Kimochis® character has its own unique personality and a pouch where children can store the feelings. The characters can become that safe third-party that help kids communicate their feelings. It can be easier for a child to say "I'm like Bug," and put the Scared feeling in Bug's pouch, than it is to say "I'm really scared." To learn more, visit www.kimochis.com.

Currently available are The Marriage Refresher Course and The Premarital Counseling Workbooks for couples. Individuals or couples may use her workbooks as a starting point before entering therapy. Therapists may also purchase her workbooks as a guideline in their own practices, or to use particular worksheets out of the workbooks for their clients.

Lisa has appeared in the media on a number of occasions and has been seen in CNN, Martha Stewart Weddings Mag and the Huffington Post.
