Are you ready to live with more joy, ease and resilience?

I can show you how using

science-backed tools from

Positive Psychology.


We all want to live a happy life. But what does that really mean?


For most people, it means happy enough. Their days are mostly good and they have all the things they’ve always wanted — friends, family, career, health, and home. What more is there, right?


Well, there is SO much more. And I know that deep down you can feel it, or else you wouldn’t be here.

It's really about thriving.

Thriving means living a life with meaning, and reaching toward positivity.

It means experiencing all human emotions and being able to grow from set backs or hard times.

And it's about connecting. 

Fostering meaningful relationships that nourish and support.

Live intentionally as your best self.

I’ll teach you the tools of positive psychology so that you can… a life that is deeply meaningful.

...navigate challenges with grace, self compassion, and resilience.

...tap into your strengths to find purpose.

...experience true pleasure, joy, and contentment in everyday moments.

...find community and build relationships that nourish you.

...overcome limiting beliefs that are holding you back from the life you deserve.

Paula’s six-week course COMPLETELY changed the way I got through the pandemic. Instead of focusing on overwhelm, frustration, and uncertainty, I learned how to shift my thinking toward gratitude and self care. I can’t control what’s going on in the world, but I can control the way I think about it.

You’re ready to make the leap! 

You don’t have to do it alone.


"My work in a group with Paula has been enormously helpful."
