What is THRIVE U?

THRIVE U is a program of live, interactive classes for women looking to bring more joy and purpose into their life as they improve their relationships and learn to thrive.

In each class, I teach you how to use research backed tools from Positive Psychology in your every day life so that you can be happier, healthier and more resilient.

Class size is limited to 10 women so you will get the attention, connection and support to make your happiness habits stick.

What is Positive Psychology?

Positive Psychology began in the late 1990's by Dr. Martin Seligman who was the President of the American Psychological Association. For over 50 years the APA had been researching disease and disorder, Dr. Seligman decided to shift the lens to wellness.
