“I think of my approach…

as everyday resiliency because the small decisions we make each day set up our ability to do the extraordinary: the big hurts, losses, setbacks, and traumas. I believe that anyone can be extraordinary when they already experience everyday resiliency in their interactions with the world. Everyday resiliency becomes a tool that aligns with our primal drive to feel safe and secure.” – Excerpt from Calm Within the Storm
