Co-Founding Acupuncturist, Professional Life + Divorce Coach, Power & Purpose Coaching

Lisa approaches health and wellness with warmth, intelligence, curiosity, and an uncanny ability to focus on core issues with candor and generosity.  Whether navigating a medical condition, divorce, desire to be healthier, or to “make more of life”, her clients discover and implement creative, enlivening approaches to their circumstances.  They suffer less and enjoy life more.  Lisa values and appreciates her association with the Acupuncture Center of New Jersey. 

Her career as an acupuncturist began after graduating from the New England School of Acupuncture (NESA) in Watertown Massachusetts in 1980 where she studied with Dr. James Tin Yau So.  She practiced acupuncture at Harvard Street Acupuncture Associates in Cambridge and Comprehensive Medical Services with Dr. Jim Doyle in Newton Center.

After marrying Peter Kadar, the couple moved to New Jersey in 1983.  Lisa has been instrumental in creating and sustaining the Acupuncture Center of New Jersey (ACNJ) with Peter since its inception in 1987. In 1993 her focus turned towards public education.  She began organizing what would eventually become Unity Charter School in Morristown, NJ. One of the first schools to be chartered in New Jersey, Unity opened its doors in 1998.  In 2000, once the school was established, Lisa stepped out to care for her aging parents, her teen children, and to manage day to day business operations at ACNJ.

By 2008, the genetic condition Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) was playing havoc with Lisa’s health.  After multiple medical procedures and surgeries, and the ongoing immune suppressant therapy associated with transplantation, she choose to find a new, less geographically dependent approach to supporting individuals in their health and wellness.  She enrolled at IPEC, the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, graduating in early 2010 as a Certified Professional Coach (CPC).  Upon graduating, she created Power and Purpose Coaching, her health, wellness, and life coaching business.  In 2012, she joined forces with Karen McMahon as a Divorce Coach with Journey Beyond Divorce, where she facilitates support groups locally and in Manhattan, blogs, and coaches individuals to navigate and grow through the difficult transition of divorce with dignity and strength.


All our telephone coaching paid off in spades this past week with my family. Normally a holiday with my parents would have been a disaster. This year parts were actually great, parts were ok, parts were challenging yet I was able to stay out of the emotional maelstrom that in the past would have pulled me way down, or recognized when I was in it and gave myself the space to let it pass so my actions were conscious responses, not reactions that led to my and everyone else’s discomfort.

My life collapsed in 1986 when I was diagnosed with CFS. I was forced to give up an exciting and lucrative job in Manhattan. At first I could do nothing but sleep. I struggled to get through my days as a mom. While I improved slowly I continued to be debilitated by the condition. Acupuncture at ACNJ was a great help. Health and wellness coaching was able to bring me to yet another level of feeling good. Since I began coaching I am feeling better emotionally and physically than I have since I was first hit. I actually feel GOOD, more confident, relaxed, healthier, and overall BETTER! The best is that I feel FREE, finally grounded in me. I am up and out! After years of watching my wonderful spouse leave the house to pursue his activities with abundant energy, now he’s asking when I’ll be home! Coaching gave me something to move forward with. I walked away from each call with actionable steps. I am amazed how much I accomplished in so little time. This was a true true investment in myself. I had no idea how much coaching with Lisa could transform a physical condition for the better. This is the best money I ever spent!

I had a sort of epiphany on Friday morning. I went into my file cabinet to see if I could find a folder related to a conference idea I had 17 years ago called ONE PEOPLE, ONE PLANET. Instead of finding that folder I was grabbed a file entitled: “Coaching with Lisa” which had erroneously been filed under O instead of C or L. I was suddenly flooded by a sea of positive emotions, fueled by the realization that all the goals we had coached around during our coaching calls a few years ago had come to fruition… more love in my intimate relationships with my wife and children, more financial success with our business, a greater sense of service and life purpose fueled by our successful entry into the non-profit fundraising world, and an overall sense that I have now reached a stage of life where wisdom is starting to seep in, and that everything seems aligned for a second stage of passionate and effective work activity reflecting my long-term desire and commitment to serve humanity and to leave the world a better place for my having lived in it—a value my Dad had instilled in me. The clarity and focus I reached coaching with Lisa had a direct relationship to the shifts in me that allowed my life to shift from where it was then to where it is now.
