In order to make positive gains in any area of your life you first must start by authentically identifying where you really are, and what you would like to see change. Once you have taken a serious look at your situation and identified opportunities for growth, you must take action to move in the direction of your goals. Initiating the momentum and staying in motion when all the barriers of life surface, requires determination and consistency.
Whether you are looking to improve your health, make lifestyle changes, improve your marriage, reinvent yourself after divorce, or discover healthier personal relationships, you've come to the right place. Authentic Gains is about accepting guidance, and taking accountability to help you deal with all the emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that stop you from becoming your authentic self.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have spent 20 years working with individuals, couples and families as they walk through the messiness of life. My greatest fulfillment has been to watch countless people transform the way they think, feel, and grow through wisdom gained by conquering life's challenges. Those who seek help and look to an expert to counsel them through the emotional hang ups that get in the way of their authentic journey, continue to exceed expectations with their newfound happiness, joy, and gratitude.
The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. This method is designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. 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 shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
