NOW IS THE TIME

TO SHOW UP, BE SEEN AND LIVE BRAVE

Using metaphor, story-telling, experiential, and creative exercises, we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness.

The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

The Daring Way ™ is based on the research of Brené Brown, PhD and all certified Daring Way™ programs, groups and intensives are led by facilitators who have completed The Daring Way training and certification process, led by The Daring Way faculty and Brené Brown, PhD.

YOUR CALL TO COURAGE

RISING STRONG™: 

BE BRAVE. SHOW UP. 

We are offering a new group using Brené Brown’s new book, RISING STRONG™ This group is a chance to put what you have read into practice. Rising Strong™, is based on the simple physics of vulnerability: If we are brave enough, often, we will fall.

This is a curriculum about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending.

Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.

Non-Profit Board Training & Development

ASSESMENT & GUIDANCE FOR BOARDS IN TRANSITION

At some point you said yes- to this role and position. You said yes to a community because you wanted to have an impact.

You were drawn to this role, this place for important reasons connected to your values and right now- the environment you’re in does not feel right. It’s changed. Something is off- you could walk away but that’s not who you are.

You care. You’re committed .

Any change (no matter how big or how small, good, bad or indifferent) changes the whole system and the system as a whole.

Be the change.

Empowered Women, Empower Women.

YOUR TRIBE IS CALLING YOU.

It can be lonely at the top... especially when  you are the only woman at the table, or in the board room or building and launching your own business.

This bi weekly connection group is for women who are forgeing their own path in the world and doing hard things.

Strong women thrive when they connect with like minded souls and when the coolest, badass, most powerful women gather together and share their power with each other-

we are unstoppable.

Through faciliated conversations and creative exercises, this group will provide the connection and support you’ve been longing for but have been to busy to seek out on your own.

 

 

BOLD!

TEEN LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY GROUP

This group is specifically designed for teens to build skills of resiliency, gain insight into thoughts, behaviors and feelings and increased confidence.

Through building a sense of community, teens can move from “I thought it was just me” to “I am not alone and I matter”.

BOLD! is based on the research of Brené Brown. PhD and the group utilizes storytelling, creative exercises and group discussion developmentally appropriate for teens.

If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. This is a curriculum about what it takes to get back up and to write a daring new ending.

CULTURE MATTERS

(IS IT SAFE HERE TO FAIL?)

Building an innovative and resilient office culture is not an easy task and at the same time without it companies, non-profits and small businesses can become stagnant and miss crucial opportunities for growth and development. 

At the same time, it’s not as hard or intimating as it may seem. It takes courage  of a different kind.

Empathic and vulnerable leadership creates a culture where ideas are shared freely, mistakes and failures welcomed as lessons to be learned by all and where innovation and community thrive.

Good therapy ends.

I am drawn to raw unfiltered courage. Going to therapy a brave choice and it takes   tenacity and grit to feel different and be different.

When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we become the author who writes the brave new ending.

It takes intention and desire to be in a relationship. When its hard to connect with your partner, conflict increases, hurts deepen and often sex becomes illusive and/or unfulfilling.

Using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) we get to the heart & core of the issues quickly  so you and your partner can live your best lives. LGBTQ+ Affirming.

Testimonials

“Working with Merritt has been one of the most life-changing decisions I made. Through the insights gained in our coaching sessions, I left the job I was good at but loathed and launched my own company. The work is hard and it’s scary at times and the only question I ask myself is, “why didn’t I do it sooner?”

M.S.

Coaching Client, CEO of her own Small Business

” I love Brené Brown and what she says and doing the Daring Way group changed me. Before the group I understood the connection between connection, vulnerability and shame and through the group I found connection I had been longing to experience.

B. M.

Daring Way Group Participant

“My wife and I came to Merritt after a crisis of infidelity in our 20 year marriage. Through the counseling, we realized that there had been a pattern present in our relationship long before the affair, that was hurting both of us. We should have worked on it, on us, years ago but we didn’t and we paid the price. I’m grateful that it wasn’t too late. “
