How it works . . .
THE RESILIENCY EQUATION:
Solution-Focused Thinking + Mind-Body Skills
The above combination of skills is the Secret Sauce of my program.
Teaching these two skillsets across the Seven Pillars builds a resilient mindset in only 10 sessions.
Here's what makes my program so unique and powerful:
It is experiential learning.
This means you learn the skills by applying them to your own life. You use them to find concrete solutions to your specific stressors - whatever those may be.
I teach mind-body skills.
While I also teach cognitive-behavioral skills, because you have to learn how to quickly and effectively think through your problems,
they are only half the equation. Mind-body skills are the other half.
Mind-body skills are activities like guided visualization, free association, stream-of-consciousness writing, and drawing that circumvent your rational, thinking mind and allow you to access a deep pool of inner peace and inner wisdom that resides inside of us all, whether we know it or not.
I believe inner wisdom is our greatest resiliency tool. I believe you are the expert in your own life. I just ask the right questions and teach you to access and trust your own inner guidance.
The program teaches skills for improving:
• regulating emotions
• managing negative thoughts
• unhooking from disempowering beliefs
• taking care of yourself
• connecting to your Inner Wisdom
The program uses:
• a 10-session course workbook
• graphic tools to shift your perspective
• a journal formatted to reinforce learning
• unique guided visualizations for each Pillar

Here's an example of a tool I created just for people who are newly diagnosed with cancer. Even if you don't have cancer, it gives you an idea of how I help you respond to stressors.
