“The Only Thing That is Constant in Life, is Change”


Change is unavoidable. There is change for improvement and growth, such as learning a new skill or expanding your business. Change can also occur unexpectedly such as divorce, the loss of a loved one or the loss of a job, causing disruption and dismay.

We can view change as loss, or as an opportunity. It’s how you respond that makes the difference!

Lisa Raffoul & Associates works with business, organizations, families and individuals.

Helping you see the opportunity in and cope with change, set new goals, and envision new possibilities for future growth and development.

Why clients love Lisa.

Lisa Raffoul was the keynote speaker for a 2 day training held in Windsor Ontario Nov., 2016. Although I had only met with Lisa once before, I was impressed with her ability to tailor her message to meet  the need of the service provider’s participants. Lisa was direct in her talk to offer a parent’s perspective. The evaluations of this event show that participants appreciated Lisa’s words and found them useful and applicable to their work. I would certainly recommend Lisa for future events.

Beth Powell, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH)

I spoke to Lisa when I was faced with an important decision about a school transition for my son. Lisa helped me sort out my goals and objectives for the new direction my son and I were about to take.  During our conversation I felt confident and empowered to give myself permission to make the change. Lisa truly understands that every family is unique and supports all families with compassion and without judgment.

Sheila D, Parent

I recently watched Lisa co-facilitate a full-day family engagement session with service providers from local child and youth mental health agencies in Windsor. I was impressed by Lisa’s ability to engage participants, drawing on both her personal stories and knowledge of the latest research around family engagement. Lisa lead the session with sensitivity and confidence. I could tell that Lisa is a passionate advocate for families. She clearly has a strong connection to her community and a desire to improve the child and youth mental health system by embedding the family voice at all levels of the system.

I feel so empowered when I talk to Lisa.

Anna Halford, Tecumseh

Lisa spoke to a group of early learning professionals in November 2016 around how to engage parents in conversation about their child’s development.  Lisa reflected on her personal experiences and was able to provide input to educators about the importance of what parents have to offer as part of the team that surrounds a child.  This is a topic that Lisa has an obvious passion for.  Her presentation style is relaxed and comfortable and the information was well received by those in attendance.

Lori Melnick, Team Supervisor, Child Care Support Services

Lisa Raffoul presented to my students in a health administration college-level elective called Transcultural Communication. Lisa was invaluable in offering a unique and important voice on issues of inclusion within health care. Her student-focused activities provided important and relevant opportunities them to critically engage with the topic of inclusion of people with significant disabilities, and how to work with families in a holistic and respectful way. She encouraged students to be reflexive and reflect on their individual roles within an inclusive health care environment. Lisa’s compelling personal stories aimed to educate and create empathy among the audience with incredible success. Lisa made a significant impact on student learning.
