Professional statement

Liz Staples is a Life Coach, Therapist, Personal & Professional Development Consultant and Private Practice Owner based in Austin, TX. Liz is on a mission to help people move through life mindfully & embrace their authentic selves. This mission is based on the belief that cultivating mindfulness and authenticity allows individuals to live out their life’s purpose and become more connected to themselves, others, and the world. Liz joins clients who are truly ready for growth, open to the self-expansion, and want to live out their life’s mission!

Liz’s practice, You Do You Life, views life coaching and therapy as integrative disciplines. Liz utilizes a variety of theory-based, therapeutic approaches alongside a life-changing understanding of coaching to help clients achieve their goals and carry out their dreams. In session, Liz works with you to uncover what you truly want in life and develop the skillset to make it happen. You will work together to identify what’s holding you back and begin taking necessary steps to heal and increase wellbeing. The process is collaborative; Liz’s clients value on-going learning and practice the embodiment of concepts learned outside of session.

Liz consistently keeps her focus through on-going education & trainings; her desire to see human beings flourish fuels her hunger for being a lifelong learner. Liz’s style can best be described as supportive and direct; she is dedicated to providing a non-judgmental space & a relationship in which you feel connected & understood. Her greatest joy is witnessing her client’s transformation from disempowering states of anxiety, emotional reactivity & uncertainty to empowering states of felt confidence & clarity, increased joy and living as the author of their own narratives!

Message to clients

We’ve all got doubts, insecurities, and stories that our ego has collected along our life’s journey. We’re human. And we all make mistakes, in fact, those mistakes are necessary for us to learn and ultimately grow. What we don’t want is our ego in the driver’s seat calling the shots, keeping us frozen and confined. Ego narrows our scope and prevents us from seeing the panoramic view we need in order to transform.

The learned approach we need to become unfrozen and gain spaciousness is mindfulness. Moving through life mindfully means we’re consciously aware and noticing the world around us, as well as our inner world, without judgement, attachment or resistance. To really know yourself requires this conscious awareness; there’s so much happening underneath the surface on an unconscious level.

Your mindset is key. What are the beliefs carrying you through your day? What’s directing your actions, thoughts and emotions? We’ll create a mindset of empowerment; one full of beliefs that mobilize you forward. My hope is for you to live a life beyond what you thought was possible; for you to feel how empowering beliefs can change your nervous system, daily efforts, relationships, and overall purpose. Life is about growth. Life isn’t something we’re meant to merely get through. We’re here to create, connect and thrive. Let's do it together!


Life coaching - Identifying what you want in life and implementing strategies to achieve your personal, professional, mental, physical, and emotional health goals. Every human being has a life mission; I want to help you discover & achieve your dreams and witness progress on a continual, daily basis.

Anxiety - Coping with excessive worry, non-stop chatter in our minds, nervousness, or stress; intense discomfort in social settings (social anxiety); or sudden and intense feelings of panic (panic disorder)

Emotion regulation - Learning how to effectively manage the ups and downs of intense emotions; developing coping skills to use in a variety of settings to calm oneself and to give an appropriate amount of space to emotions

Perfectionism - Coping with feelings of anxiety, stress, self-criticism, and procrastination; addressing unrealistic expectations of one’s self and negatively comparing self to others

Self-esteem - Cultivating self-compassion, assertiveness, and confidence; developing ways to reduce suffering, anxiety, social withdrawal, and self-neglect

Universal Connection - It’s essential to one’s development to understand universal connection: we are all connected and therefore our actions matter, our lives have meaning and you have inherent purpose. Exploring one’s beliefs and values around life purpose, meaning, and spirituality; addressing the barriers to living a life that feels fulfilling, including instigating change or developing new habits
