Intuitive Reader, Energy-Healer, and Coach

Intuitive and clairvoyant Lisa B (Lisa Bernstein) has provided professional readings, energy healings, and coaching since 1993. She completed undergraduate and graduate programs in the late 1980s and early 1990s at the Berkeley Psychic Institute and Aesclepion Healing Center in Northern California, and she continues to refresh and expand her skills with additional training. With virtually all of her practice so far powered by word-of-mouth, she has given hundreds of readings and energy-healings by phone and in person.

Lisa B addresses questions about overall growth and well-being, relationships, career, family, creativity, pets, crossroads and decisions, and past lives. She also specializes in providing intuitive services and instruction to fellow diabetics.

Using clairvoyance and other intuitive abilities (and, at events and parties, tarot cards), Lisa draws on her own perceptions and insight in readings rather than channeling any other entity. Every reading is a journey she takes with her client toward greater understanding of that person's individual truth.

Along the way, Lisa sees specific, accurate details and underlying dynamics; moves out energy blocks and programming; and gives clear answers to questions. She also works with clients one-on-one to teach them basic intuitive tools to get more in synch with themselves and feel better.

Technical writer and editor. Lisa B previously maintained a part-time career as a technical writer and editor specializing in environmental science and engineering for private consultants and municipalities.

Poetry publications. Lisa B is the author of two full-length poetry books, from Wesleyan University Press (1989) and What Books Press (2023).  She co-founded the award-winning literary magazine Five Fingers Review, and her poems have appeared in more than 60 anthologies and periodicals, including The Kenyon Review, Ploughshares, and City Lights Review.

Creative writing grants and fellowships. Lisa B has won prestigious creative writing grants or fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Ucross Foundation, Money for Women/Barbara Deming Memorial Fund, Headlands Center for the Arts, Puffin Foundation, and others.

Singer and performer. As a jazz and groove singer and spoken-word artist, Lisa B has co-produced and released seven full-length CDs and the 2020 pandemic single “Don’t Touch Your Face.” She has performed at more than 90 venues, including music festivals, universities, bookstores, record stores, cafes, nightclubs, and theatres on both coasts and beyond and has received widespread radio play and critical acclaim.  

Teaching. Lisa B held a two-year term as Associate Director of The Poetry Center and lecturer in creative writing at San Francisco State University and was a faculty member for three summers at the Foothill College Writers Conference in Los Altos, Calif. In addition, Lisa teaches poetry-writing as a volunteer to Bay Area youth; leads workshops for singers at the Jazzschool (Berkeley, Calif.) and Blue Bear School of Music (San Francisco); and offers workshops on mind-body-spirit tools to performers, leaders, and others. 

Additional education. Lisa holds a B.A. with honors in English literature/creative writing from the University of California at Santa Cruz, where she was a UC President’s Scholar for four years, and an M.A. in English literature/creative writing from San Francisco State University, where she was an Academy of American Poets Prize recipient.

Home. Lisa lives in Oakland, Calif., enjoying her garden, longtime communities, and cats as well as the Bay Area’s diverse culture and restaurants. She loves to travel to sunny places and speaks Spanish fluently (though she offers intuitive services only in English).
