To understand and navigate your world, you must escape it from time to time.

Discover & embrace YOUR authentic voice at the EndeAVOr Academy’s Smoky Mountain Retreat. This luxury cabin experience is an immersive, experiential getaway designed to transform and heal YOU and your relationships and enhance your career. Did we mention there are NBCC CEs?


Join us for this incredible experience in the majestic mountains of Tennessee. Your presenters are licensed therapists, and coaches who will cover everything you need to know about living your big, authentic life & combating “Good Girl Syndrome.” Yes, Good Girl Syndrome can happen to ANYONE, regardless of gender.


“Good Girl Syndrome” happens when we don’t speak up about our feelings and needs, and that can limit us big time in all life areas!


We have the untapped power in expressing our feelings and needs in personal and work relationships. But that’s scary, right? 


  • What if we get rejected? 

  • What if people think we’re too demanding? 

  • What if we express our needs, and we’re ignored?


No worries. We’ve got you!

Check out our Smoky Mountain retreat designed to help YOU find and express YOUR confident voice and live your big, authentic life.

Our Mission

Endeavor (en·​deav·​or):  1. a purposeful or industrious undertaking (especially one that requires effort or boldness). 2. earnest and conscientious activity intended to do or accomplish something.​Simply put, our mission is to inspire other psychotherapists to become whomever they desire to be, in whatever endeavors they decide to undertake in life and in business. We endeavor to help YOU go far beyond what you thought possible. 


Who We Are

In 2019, three therapists met in magnificent Denver, CO on a professional and personal endeavor to grow, learn, and relax. That awe-inspiring journey connected us, Lisa Duez, Michelle Salazar, and Pam Tippit: We realized we met “Our People." 

In each other, we discovered beautiful souls who are passionate about offering quality counseling & consulting services to our communities and beyond. We discovered soul sisters who think and live "outside the box" as female entrepreneurs. We realized our paths crossed to enhance our individual journeys...and so began our EndeAVOr! 

Join 3 therapists from across the US (Alabama, Virginia, and Ohio) as we gather together and dare to connect, grow, and EndeAVOr!!! 

Find “YOUR People” immersed in the ambience of charming Savannah, GA. If you have already found “Your People,” bring them!


Our goals are to assist people in gaining fresh, new perspectives on their mental health. Our goal is to help you keep your "tool box" stocked with effective skills!


It is imperative for people to consistently invest in self care to show up as our best selves in our respective spaces.


Taking time to relax is key to prevent burnout and remain positive and productive. Our goal is to help people find respite in some of the most serene yet exciting locales!!
