Hi, Friend!

I’m guessing if you’re thinking of inviting me to come spend some time with you doing some of this courage-building work, we already know each other well. So, get in touch, even if you’re not sure about how and when you’d like to host it yet. If we don’t know each other yet, let’s get connected!

You may already be aware that I am a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator. That means that I did more than 18 months’ intensive training in The Daring Way™, Rising Strong™ to really get the practices in my blood. It’s a whole lot more than just reading the book, or posting Brené quotes on social media. Living this way is a lifelong practice in wholeheartedness, and I continue to mess up and learn and practice more and more in the way I live, love, lead and parent. I can help you live bravely, too, and build more courage in your community.



The curriculum is designed to dig deep into the things that get in the way of us living a brave, alive, authentic life. The workshops use video footage of Brené, storytelling, and experiential exercises in a group setting. During the process we explore topics such as trust, vulnerability, courage, self-compassion, empathy, shame and worthiness.



You can already start imagining yourself enjoying hosting a workshop, providing the venue that is comfortable for you, and attending the workshop for free. I provide the content based on Brené Brown’s research, facilitate the learning and coach the group. The people you invite are probably either already interested in a Brené Brown-based workshop, or they love you, or they love me, or all three.

Some of us who are certified as facilitators are authorized to offer all three types of Brené Brown’s workshops intensives, which can each be completed in a 2-day or 3-day format. They are The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™. Dare to Lead™ is available exclusively in partnership with The Hobbs Consultancy.

If you are interested in having me come to you for a weekend intensive on your turf, anywhere in the world, contact me and we will make a plan, talking through your preferred dates, size of group, budget and location details.



Daring Greatly™ – is for you if you want to be braver with your life, understand better where you are holding yourself back, learn to ask for the support you need, and transform your relationship with vulnerability. It’s designed to help you set out on a brave, new path in a supportive community. This is an ideal first workshop to walk through with friends who want to be braver together. 

Rising Strong™ – is for you if you have struggled with disappointment, failure or heartbreak and want to know how to use your struggle as a call to courage, and write a brave new ending for your story. Rising Strong™ will help you develop the resilience and practices required to get back up in a new way after a fall. This workshop is ideal for people with maturity and depth who want to make sense of their experiences. 

Dare to Lead™ – is the right choice for leaders and teams in the workplace. It takes the best of the four Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ skill sets for clear, measurable application in the corporate world. This option is available exclusively through our partnership with certified facilitator Roxanne Hobbs at The Hobbs Consultancy.

All three of the workshops are based on Brené Brown’s decades of research and are filled with compassion, connection and courage-building skills.

When a whole group does the work together, it’s magical. Not only is the workshop itself a powerful experience, but you will have common language and skills to continue the wholehearted living long after the experience is over. 

Letting ourselves be seen, just as we are in a safe space, creates a bond deep in our bones. Being human together is powerful and lasting, and you will learn how to build other meaningful community for yourself in the future. 


Your next step…

Can’t decide which of the workshops you’d love to host first? Just get in touch, and we’ll decide together.



The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential training based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. This powerful, intensive work has been designed to support the transformation of individuals, families, groups and leaders in developing shame resilience and helping them show up, be seen and live braver lives.

Choosing to be brave in the way you live takes courage. You probably already know that there is one or more area of your life where you want to get a lot more clear and passionate and start taking action.

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 you live.

You will come away with new skills in being courageous, building self-compassion and empathy, knowing who to trust, and being able to take your next brave steps. You will take home a beautifully-designed workbook with images to help you capture your learning, and a group of soul-mates to continue walking the journey together.

Your Next Step …

Let’s talk about having me facilitate a Daring Way™ workshop at your location. Together, we’ll build a brave community with you and your friends. 




Failure can be deeply painful and impact how we see ourselves and the world. In an effort to protect, you often end up living from stories that are not accurate or helpful. The shame of falls, fails and struggles can keep you from daring to risk, try, create, change or leap.

This workshop will help you get clear on the stories you are telling yourself and learn how to respond differently when failure and disappointment inevitably happen.

Based upon the research of Brené Brown, PhD and her Rising Strong™ methodology, and on my work as a coach and spiritual director, you will walk away with an actionable plan to address and respond differently to the pain of past and future failures.

This intensive is also more than just learning about how to address failure. In this workshop experience we will also address anxiety, grief, forgiveness, perfectionism, and trust.

It is an experience; a place where you are cared for and get practice speaking your needs in a community of like-minded individuals seeking to stop living a life based on stories that fuel doubt and fear. This workshop experience will foster a space of courage, curiosity and connection.

You will take home a beautifully-designed workbook with images to help you capture your learning, and a group of soul-mates to continue walking the journey together. 

Your next step…

Let’s have a conversation about whether Rising Strong™ is the right workshop for you now. If you’re ready to know how to get back up after a rough patch, you’re in great company. 




Dare to Lead™ takes the essentials from both the Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ for clear application to the corporate setting. Your team can develop brave leaders and courageous cultures. This workshop is the approved option for corporate and team leadership settings. This option is available via our exclusive partnership with The Hobbs Consultancy.

Courage is a collection of four teachable, observable, and measurable skills sets:

  • Rumbling with Vulnerability: Facing risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure with courage and clarity.
  • Living into our Values: Identifying, operationalizing, and practicing the beliefs that we hold most important.
  • Braving Trust: Creating or deepening connections in relationships and teams based on the seven elements of trust.
  • Learning to Rise: Learning and growing from the failures, setbacks, and disappointments that are inevitable when we are brave with our lives.

Dare to Lead™ is learning and practice that requires brave work, tough conversations, and showing up with our whole hearts. You will come away with a beautifully-designed workbook that captures your learning with thought-provoking images, and your team will have new language and skill for moving forward authentically together. You have the opportunity to be tested on the four leadership skill sets and receive a certificate.
