The Daring Way™


The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. As one of the only providers trained in this methodology in our area, I am thrilled to be able to offer this powerful process to my clients, via group experiences as well as individual sessions.

Within The Daring Way™ methodology, I use three curriculum programs, based on the research of Brené Brown, PhD., that correspond to her books- Daring Greatly™, Rising Strong™, and Gifts of Imperfection™. In these programs we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, authenticity, shame, and worthiness. Through exercises and discussions we examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back, and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing tools for greater emotional resilience and daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

Here’s how Brené describes the progression of her work:
The Gifts of Imperfection – Be you.
Daring Greatly – Be all in.
Rising Strong – Fall. Get up. Try again.
