LISA BROOKMAN, MSW, PSW



"You're story doesn't define you; it's just a piece of who you are."

          Lisa Brookman is living proof of her mantra: "Nothing ever grows in a comfort zone."
          Lisa is a psychotherapist who started her private practice in 2003. Since then, she opened the West Island Therapy Centre and created a multi-disciplinary team of psychotherapists and psychologists, whose goal is to make a difference in Montreal's mental health community.
          "It was the best decision I ever made. As female entrepreneurs, we should feel comfortable taking risks and evolving."
         After noticing many of her clients feeling stuck and discouraged, Lisa was motivated to launch her radio show, on Montreal's CJAD 800, and her website, Wise Women Canada, a Canadian lifestyle blog.
          "I created a safe platform for women to tell their stories and inspire others. Many of us are caregivers but we often forget to nurture and care for ourselves."
          "Anytime I take a risk, I know that it teaches my three kids about confidence and self-esteem. Being their role model motivates me to push forward."
