My Tools

Rising Strong™: The Rising Strong™ is a methodology based on Brene Brown's latest bestselling book, where Dr. Brene Brown. The Rising Strong process will teach us how to rise from our falls, overcome our mistakes and face hurt in a way that brings more wisdom and wholeheartedness. If we are brave enough often enough, we will fall. This is a workshop about what it takes to get back up. How owning our stories of disappointment, failure, and heartbreak gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and Rising Strong, our clearest path to deeper meaning, wisdom, and hope.


The Daring Way™: The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the work of Dr. Brené Brown. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and a courage practice - which transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead. This process helps men and women, adolescents and adults, how to show up, be seen and live braver lives.


Co-Active Coaching (Coaching Training Institute): I am very proud to be a Co-Active Coach. The Co-Active Model balances self-awareness, responsiveness within relationships, and courageous action to create an environment where individuals can be deeply fulfilled, connected to others, and successful in what matters most.

The “Co” in Co-Active suggests relationship, connection, intimacy, and collaboration. Thus, the “Co” in us is curious, listens deeply, hears nuances, holds space for others, intuits, and nurtures. The “Active” in Co-Active stands for power, direction, action, and manifestation. The “Active” in us is courageous, has clarity and conviction, takes charge, and achieves goals.

The magic happens in the dance between “Co” and “Active” — action that arises from presence, deep relationship and context and is channeled into dynamic action and contribution. Balancing and blending these energies allows us to move out of an “either/or” paradigm into a “yes/and” paradigm.


Interpersonal Dynamics (Stanford University): Interpersonal Dynamics focuses on improving emotional intelligence (where you observe how your individual behavior affects others in real time) and on experiencing the power that comes from being more fully yourself while interfacing with others.


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (JFK University): Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps patients understand the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviors. CBT is generally short-term and focused on helping clients deal with a very specific problem. During the course of treatment, people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior.


Forgiveness Training (Stanford University): Forgiveness is the moment to moment experience of peace and understanding that occurs when an injured party's suffering is reduced, as they transform their grievance against an offending party. This transformation takes place through learning to take less personal offense, attributing less blame to the offender, and seeing the personal and interpersonal harm that occurs as the natural consequence of unresolved anger and hurt.

Mindful Practice (Mindful Schools, Faces Conferences): Being mindful is a way of being, which cultivates the best of who we are as human beings. The simple act of being mindful has the power to change everything — how we approach ourselves, our challenges, our relationships, and our communities. Mindfulness doesn't require us to change who we are. It includes attention, awareness, empathy, compassion, "being in the zone", presence, flow, contemplation, and more.

We can cultivate these innate qualities with simple mindfulness practices that are scientifically demonstrated to benefit ourselves, our loved ones, our friends and neighbors, our co-workers, and the world at large. Both science and experience demonstrate how being mindful brings positive benefits for our health, happiness, work, and relationships.
