What is The Daring Way™?

The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown PHD LMSW. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders.  We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness, and explore practices to transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.  Further information available at:

As a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator, I integrate The Daring Way™ into my therapy work with individuals and couples. I also offer The Daring Way™ material in a variety of groups and workshops. (See below). All of these are designed to provide a safe and supportive space to help you identify what's holding you back from stepping more fully into the life you truly desire.  You'll also learn new tools and practices that will help you move forward more authentically, resiliently and with a deeper sense of your worthiness.

What is Rising Strong™?

Rising Strong™ Groups

Rising Stong™ groups are based on the simple physics of vulnerability:
If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. This is a curriculum about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
