Love Over Fear

Hello, I’m Lisa Waugh. I’m a psychotherapist and I help people choose love over fear.

What does that mean?

The option of choosing love over fear is present in nearly everything we think, say, and do.

  • It’s choosing to spend time with a friend because you want to, not because you feel guilty not doing it.

  • It’s eating something nutritious because you love your body, not because you think losing weight will make you worthy.

  • It’s about giving your child undivided attention even though you have a long to-do list.

  • It’s being kind and compassionate towards yourself when you feel scared, shameful, guilty, or disappointed.

These decisions may look the same on the surface, but it’s WHY you choose to do what you do that makes the difference between feeling helpless and feeling empowered. When you acknowledge the source of your decisions, you gain awareness into the process of healing your fears and living intentionally.


“If you want to tap into what life has to offer, let love be your primary mode of being, not fear. Fear closes us down and makes us retreat. It locks doors and limits opportunities. Love is about opening to possibilities. Seeing the world with new eyes. It widens our heart and mind. Fear incarcerates, but love liberates.”
