I am a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator and Approved Consultant (CDWF-C).  The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown (see below for more information). The method was developed to help men, women, and adolescents learn how to show up, be seen, and live braver lives. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing a courage practice that transforms the way we live, love, parent, and lead. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings and is suitable for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders.

What Is Rising Strong™?

The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Rising Strong™ is a book and 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.

Manifesto of the Brave and Brokenhearted

Courage originally meant “To speak one’s mind by telling all one’s heart.
