I've Discovered Your Flourishing Formula™!
Grounded in Positive Psychology, the new science that studies the conditions and factors that make life worth living, Your Flourishing Formula™ is the method I developed to help you flourish!
When we work together, I'll help you get to know who you are right now, and choose who and how you want to be. You may be different than who you thought you'd be when you "grew up", and you'll experience the adventure of self-discovery, and of finally feeling authentic.
You'll identify your strengths and values, build your personal foundation, chip away at obstacles, neutralize blocks, make lifestyle changes, and let go of what doesn't work for you. You'll learn how to harness all your resources to improve your health and happiness, fulfill your potential, and live a full and meaningful life!
Backed by a Science-Based Philosophy!
Your Flourishing Formula™ is based on an evidence-based model I developed that identifies the most important elements of a fulfilling life. To describe it, I use the metaphor of a tree. It's the perfect metaphor to describe how we flourish!
The foundation, or trunk of the tree consists of the inner resources Your Flourishing Formula™ helps you cultivate. These resources include confidence, persistence, flexibility, optimism, compassion, resilience, and more.
The branches of the tree consist of your values, strengths, and goals. Values, strengths, and goals give you direction and power, and shape your life. They are what make you unique!
And the rewards you want from life - health, happiness, success, meaning, productivity, and improved relationships -the rewards of flourishing - are the foliage and fruits of your tree.
Below the surface of the tree are roots - unconscious processes that dictate your behavior without your awareness and can cause you trouble.
Your Flourishing Formula™ combines training, mentoring, and coaching to provide you with:
- Daily practices that harness the power of neuroplasticity to strengthen your foundation,
- Illuminating self-discovery exercises to connect with your authentic self and give you motivation and purpose,
- Proven tools to help you create the actionable goals and routines that lead you to your best self and best life,
- Support, accountability, compassion, and companionship as you grow and flourish,
- Rootwork: a neuroscience-informed approach to neutralizing the old neural wiring that often gets in the way of our best intentions.

Daily Practices to Strengthen Your Foundation
You need a strong foundation of inner resources, such as confidence, resilience, and psychological flexibility to take on the challenge of flourishing. We'll work together to craft a daily "exercise" routine of practices including sensible self-care, mind work, breathwork, positivity, and compassion practices, that will both meet your specific needs and suit your lifestyle. These exercises use the power of neuroplasticity to resculpt your brain!
I once heard that Michelangelo said, "I just chipped away at the marble until the angel was set free". Turns out he didn't say that, but I love the idea of the quote anyway. Self-Discovery is my favorite part of this plan. So many of us we carry layers of shoulds and have spent decades designing our identities to meet the needs of our families, our generation, or our culture. To begin meeting your needs, you need to find out who you really are, who you want to be, and what you truly want and need. We'll spend some time with your values, strengths and excavating your authentic self in the Self-Discovery phase of your plan.
Based on what we learn during your self-discovery process, we'll work together to craft actionable goals and design new routines that will honor your values, utilize your strengths, meet your personal needs and cultivate a purposeful, meaningful, and happy life.
This is the flourishing part!
Support and Companionship
As a woman who values individualism, I used to think I had to do everything on my own, but as I've weathered the storms of life, I learned that even the strongest tree sways in life's rough winds. This is a Positive Psychology Inspired program, but that doesn't mean it's all fun and games. Digging deep to resculpt your life and rediscover yourself can get a bit dark and stormy. This is your journey, but I will be there to support you, travel with you, and shine a light in the dark moments.
If you find yourself stuck in old patterns, the behavioral neuroscience-inspired rootwork process can help you neutralize those blocks so you can heal, grow, and flourish.
Your Flourishing Formula™ can help anyone motivated to become their best selves and live their best lives, and I have a special interest in working with women in their middle years. Click here to learn about how you can Flourish After 50 and make the rest of your life the best of your life!
