Hi, I'm Larissa


Hi, I'm Larissa


I help leaders develop mastery in Wayfinding
by sensing, unblocking, and cultivating aliveness

Partners Headshots (1).png

I specialize in facilitating transformation and alignment across scales as a ceremony designer, rites of passage guide, and integrative systems coach. I use my deep experience in the energetics and mechanics of transformation to help clients develop refined sensing and listening, shed what no longer serves, and dynamically steward greater creative energy in their lives and companies. My work weaves 10+ years of experience bridging diverse worlds — leadership coaching, organizational culture consulting, strategy design, group facilitation, ecosystems science and permaculture, holistic healing/wellness, ceremony and inner alchemy, somatic intimacy coaching, and wilderness survival. 

As your companion and guide in Wayfinding, I draw on transformative events from my own life that taught me how to find my way. These include being an entrepreneur, designing relevant ceremonies for urban and professional life, committing to mastering the art of loving exquisitely, embarking on a seven-year healing journey after a near-fatal accident, translating indigenous cultural technologies for connection into business ecosystems, navigating life after my dad’s death when I was 22, and designing an independent Master’s degree at Stanford.

My clients and work experience span industries across the Fortune 100, startups, and non-profits. Prior to Wayfinding, I served as Chief Culture and Design Officer of Invisible, a tech startup, and as a Senior Associate at Lippincott, a global creative consultancy. My clients hail from organizations that include:

Client Impressions


In order to metabolize my new corporate role,
I knew I needed someone with the emotional intelligence, presence, and integrity that I could trust with my life.
Larissa is that person.

-MC

Larissa is a rare combination of life coach, business advisor, therapist, and energy healer. Her skill set surpasses that of any personal coach I've ever met with. In one session with her, I had one of the greatest personal breakthroughs
of my life.

Larissa is a rare jedi living among us.

Thank you, Larissa. I really appreciate the depth and gentleness that you brought in guiding us. And that you felt as deeply as we did. A couple months ago, the “rites of passage” felt a bit strange and weird to me, but yesterday truly felt like one and now it all makes sense.

—NK 

You are an enlightened lady, master of love and light.  Thank you for your meaningful guidance and friendship. 

—KO

Larissa has a way of opening people up and generating connection and learning at a deeply human and interactive level. I’ve worked with 100’s of speakers and facilitators in my career and none even remotely come close to being able to move a body of people from abstract concepts to a sensory and deeply embodied learning experience the way Larissa does. She’s a gift to this world and her wisdom is resonant for this turbulent times
we're all in together.

— BL

I'm being promoted to Vice President! Thank You! You've been a big part of this journey with me. You helped the little broken bird inside of me emerge and take flight!

— SB

Larissa asks the tough questions that help me see things from different perspectives, and she follows up to ensure my goals have been achieved. She's patient and insightful, with remarkable instincts.

— LC

I entered the door hoping for strategic organizational support and our work together is transforming me into a clearer, more effective leader and human. Much gratitude, Larissa!

— DN

Larissa skillfully and compassionately helped us design and facilitate a grief process for our team. This process helped us acknowledge our pain and heal together; the impact it had on our collective wellbeing and psychological safety as an organization is invaluable. I wholeheartedly recommend her work. 

—DR

You are so naturally talented at helping others connect to their deeper self. Whenever I’m around you, I want to take in every bit of knowledge, love, wisdom, energy, generosity, and empathy you emanate. Your guidance unlocked something profound in me and I will look back on that day as a turning point in my life.

— KK

I so appreciate the dragons you've faced, and the wisdom
that shines through the space you hold.
