The Origin of LifeStance Therapy
Sacrifice Is Not a Requirement
As a young woman, I was under the impression that a woman’s role was to sublimate and sacrifice her dreams just to have the comfort and security of not being alone. My role was not to grow healthy and stronger and actually enjoy the relationship. Rather I thought my focus needed to be on another person and making THEM happy. That’s how I would be “of use.”
I was paying too high of a price for a life that was bereft of emotional and physical intimacy, honesty and fun! I was giving up the chance to truly be seen and understood by someone and instead choosing a life built on fear.
- There is no sacrifice needed when you are in a loving relationship. It’s about sharing who you naturally are with another who is eager to learn and be curious.
This isn’t like any other therapy. With LifeStance, we focus on the energy you want in your relationships – love. We highlight the challenges embedded in the path to get there and bring your skill levels up to meet those challenges; getting feedback from beginning to end on your thoughts and the behaviors you choose.
- Start with love and end with love. Individual and relationship therapy becomes conscious energy work.
It’s Never Too Late…
It’s never too late to dream again and succeed in creating the relationships that suit you best – a life that makes your heart happy.
We are the creators of our own experience from moment to moment. You can achieve anything that you put your attention into as long as the energy of your intention is consistent with the energy of the goal you have selected.
- Right now, you are making the choice to read something that can change your life for the better. Good choice! You are already half way there!
Energy is the Key
Contrary to what the world would say about me, I focused on growing the energy that I knew was healing and authentic. And once I aligned that energy, love, with the compatible energy of the goals I wanted to achieve, LifeStance Therapy began to take shape.
- All we have is this moment right now to do with as we choose. The past is gone. Your life can change in a heartbeat. It’s not about sacrifice. It’s about sharing the best of who you are with the world today. Call me now at (910) 446-3697 to get started on your way!

About Elisa M. Thomas, MA LMFT
A well-defined turning point came for me at 47. I was working as an accountant for 17 years, having graduated from Sonoma State University in California with a bachelor’s degree in Management/Accounting.
What happened next was what I can only describe as a series of synchronicities and powerful interventions in my life by unseen yet powerful forces. I’ve always had a strong connection with spirit which has saved my life more than once and sustained me during abusive experiences.
I ended up going back to school and graduating from John F. Kennedy University in California with a master’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology/Marriage and Family Therapy. I am currently licensed to practice in North Carolina, Arizona and New Mexico.
I feel strongly that we owe each other respect and dignity for being members of the larger human family. Helping others to live fearlessly in relationships is my mandate with the knowledge that, regardless of less than optimal behaviors we all exhibit at times, we are essentially innocent, creative and divine energy seeking to connect to others in love.
When I’m not working, I love to walk on the beach, swim, cook, garden and be with my friends and family.
