Transforming Fear into Courage™

Join me on a transformative journey alchemizing your fears into courage, your anxiety into calm and your self-doubt into confidence. 

Sign up today, we start May 1st!

This is a time of unprecedented uncertainty and change. But we don’t have to be dealing with coronavirus to feel isolated, unsure, self-doubting, and afraid.  Difficult life events have a way of turning our world upside down. 

I’ve had a lifetime of living and working with anxiety and stress, and I have learned how to transform even the scariest moments into opportunities for growth, change and transformation.

There was a time in my life after a painful divorce that I experienced anxiety so strongly and began having panic attacks so regularly that I became agoraphobic. I was too scared to leave my home. Now that’s what I called stuck.

It was out of that place of darkness that I began my process of transformation and growth. I eventually overcame my fears, became a therapist and have spent the last 3 decades guiding others to their own transformation from fear to a life of courage.

We can learn to step into the places that scare us with certainty and confidence. I can show you how.

Each week we’ll explore exactly what is underneath your fears & anxiety. We’ll discover what your fears mean to you and where they came from.

We’ll dig into what you actually need to calm those fears and access the inner resources that will help move you forward with confidence and courage.

You’ll learn to use your inner “wise mentor” to quiet that inner critic that pesters you with self-doubt and a constant, debilitating stream of “what-if’s”. 

I’ll provide you with tips and tools to help you when fear feels overwhelming. Along with daily practices you can use to develop a solid foundation of calm and resilience.

And much more, including live group sessions with me online every week of the program.

I know there is not a one-size fits all roadmap to health; each of us comes to our fears and anxieties from our own childhood and life experiences. 

But one thing I have learned in this lifetime of helping others is that our fears and longings, our anxieties and self-doubts come from the same place. A deep desire to be seen and known and loved. And a fear that there is something inherently lacking in us that keeps us from feeling safe and loved. 

When we can quiet that fear and connect to our deepest longings, we can find a path to what we most need in life: authentic connection.

Embark on a new path of confidence. Realize your strength and your brilliance where fear and self doubt don’t hold you back any longer.

Transforming Fear into Courage™
A Living Brave Program

Each week you’ll get:

  • VIDEO TEACHING LESSONS covering each of the topics along with tools for your LIVING BRAVE TOOLBOX
  • A workbook with JOURNAL PROMPTS and EXERCISES to guide your inner deep dive
  • A RESOURCE LIST of wisdom from my most cherished mentors and gurus

We’ll also meet online every Friday morning for coffee and Q & A where I’ll share with you the stories of other “brave souls”. People just like you and me who transformed their fears and anxieties into an experience of growth and change.

We’ll have time to answer questions and share our own experiences with each other as we begin to step into the future with more courage and confidence. And as we practice the tools and lessons we are learning together.

        “As I look back on what I’ve learned about shame, gender, and worthiness, the greatest lesson is this: If we’re going to find our way out of shame and fear and back to each other, vulnerability is the path and courage is the light. To set down those lists of what we’re supposed to be is brave. To love ourselves and support each other in the process of becoming real is perhaps the greatest single act of daring greatly.”
