When I work with a group of people, my goal is simple: uplift, inspire, and offer practical tools to increase happiness in everyday life.
I offer talks and experiential workshops for small and large audiences. They are based on A Happier You and can be tailored specifically to your group’s needs, typically ranging from 60 to 90 minutes. Currently, the “Habits of Happiness” program has versions specifically designed for:
- high school students
- college students
- healthcare staff
- behavioral health providers
The “Habits of Happiness” program includes an introduction to core themes in A Happier You, mindfulness exercises, positivity sharing among participants, and reflection on personal strengths. In any experiential workshop, I want participants to feel valued, safe, positive, and in control–at all times.
If you are part of an organization not included in the list above, I’m glad to adapt the program to meet your needs. Please reach out to me to explore options.
No matter what group you are a part of, or what roles you fulfill, my philosophy is the same: I believe that everyone already possesses everything they need in order to flourish; sometimes it just takes the right conditions to release that positive potential.
