When I think back on my life -- living with anxiety -- I think of it as before and after terms...

There's the way I lived before I discovered The Anxiety Tool -- and there's the way I live now. 

Before The Anxiety Tool, I spent years struggling and searching for a miracle cure. And while many of the remedies I found worked to lessen my anxiety -- they were eventually incomplete. Throughout those years I suffered silently; feeling isolated from the world around me.

In public I would put on a happy face, while inside I was anxious, uncertain and overwhelmed. It was exhausting and often led to avoiding people and situations whenever possible. I was missing out on life.

Life now is much different. Today I'm able to face life head-on with calm, courage and confidence.

My experience proved something very important

As a society we're obsessed with quick-fixes. In fact, we're trained to worship them.

So many self-help or health products are marketed with promises of immediate results. You'll see, 5 steps to happiness or 30-minutes to a stress-free life. 

Consider the diet industry. It's full of quick-fix promises such as miracle diet pills and simple shakes -- promising fast weight loss with very little commitment, discipline or effort required.

The problem is... I've never seen one of these promises work long term. Have you?

The Anxiety Tool is not a quick fix. It's a sustainable experience-based path which can take you from anxious, stressed and afraid to confident, calm and capable of living life, on your terms.  

No matter what other form or treatment you're utilizing, The Anxiety Tool can compliment it. I believe everyone facing anxiety or chronic stress can benefit from The Anxiety Tool strategy. 

The Anxiety Tool is a catalyst. It's focus isn't on solving symptoms and problems -- but instead on leveraging them -- which is a fundamental key to our capacity to sustainable change and lasting happiness.

Yoga Therapy for Anxiety / Life Skills Coaching

Put your own mask on first

3-month one-on-one coaching program

Somewhere along the way you confused self-care with indulgence... you mistaked pleasing others and avoiding disapproval as the key to happiness. 

The problem is your solution isn't working... 

In case of emergency, air masks will drop from the ceiling. Please secure your own oxygen mask before assisting others...

Every flight attendant prior to take off gives this important instruction for securing survival.

Why? Because if you run out of oxygen you can't help anyone else with their oxygen mask  - least of all yourself.

If you find yourself depleted, frustrated, overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, worried -- or envious of others -- ask yourself what you're not allowing yourself to have, want, do or be. 

Learning to put our own oxygen mask on is about defining and establishing your inner compass, inner influence, sustained harmony and personal preferences, values and integrity -- defined overall as living in a state of wholeness.  

Anxiety is not the real problem. For many of us it is a coping mechanism that once worked... but now has turned on us and made us utlimately suffer. 

I will show you how to relate to yourself and therefore your anxiety in a new way and teach you practical tools -- or a way of life -- where you can experience sustained joy, confidence and wisdom from the inside out - and face the world and live an engaged and fullfilling life.

3-month program includes 12 private sessions (one per week) either by phone, skype or in my Nashville office. This program is designed to give you a solid foundation so you can sustainably get from overwhelm to calm - and get in control of your life again.


5 Layers of you

6-month one-on-one coaching program

Does suffering take center stage in your life?

You are not your suffering. You are not a problem to fix. You are an indiviual with unique gifts, talents, desires, preferences and needs... all deserving of expression and fulfillment. 

According to Spiritual Pychology, Yoga Therapy and now the science of Positive Psychology we are a complex yet practical combination of body, breath, mind, personality and emotions or spirituality. 

To be healthy and happy -- or to reduce suffering -- we must learn how to get all  5 layers aligned and harmonized and working toward your joy. The engine to these layers is within YOU. 

The 5 layers are:

Body -- energy levels, health, healthy food, yoga postures, cleanliness, etc
Breathe - long and smooth -- lengthen exhale and expansive chest breathing
Mind - calm, clear and focused on sustainable joy - not quick fixes
Personality & Relationships - living by core values, lifestyle choices, personal preferences and healthy relationships
Emotions or spirituality - a sense of positivity or faith in something bigger and how we relate more deeply to who we are

Stress and anxiety not only cause disturbances in the mind but in the entire body... stress overtime creates inflammation and almost all disease and illness can be traced back to inflammation.

Anxiety, worry and chronic stress disturbs our personality, emotional and spiritual connection as well as lifestyle, relationships and happiness.

Yoga Therapy / Life Skills Coaching is a sustainable path to healing and thriving and treats the person, not the problem.

I will show you how to make anxiety and stress an opportunity and catalyst for transformation on all 5 layers, rather than a problem to focus on and one that takes over your life and robs you of joy, connection and opportunity.

6-month program includes 24 private sessions (one per week) either by phone, skype or in my nashville office. This program includes the foundational work of the 3-month program and allows us to go deeper in our work together establishing and experiencing the overall life benefits of living the anxiety tool.

Before working with Joy, I was experiencing daily stress and bouts of anxiety. Within the first three months, both lessened by first understanding and then changing how I dealt with unhealthy behavioral patterns. Now I’m better equipped to work through triggers that would normally have sent me spiraling. I highly recommend working with Joy if personal roadblocks are hindering you from living your best life going forward.

Joy brings an integrated approach to well-being and to the importance of living a balanced life, by incorporating into her teachings the principles of yoga, positive psychology, mindfulness, meditation and breath.

Joy came into my life when I needed her the most. As a teacher and mentor, Joy really listened to me and helped guide me through the emotional roller coaster I was on. She shared tools and practices that helped rewire my brain and create new and more positive thought patterns and habits, which I still rely on today. Through positive psychology and the wisdom traditions, Joy helped me change my mind, and thus my life.

In 2014, I took Joy’s 5-month Deeper Studies course where she used her positive psychology background to enrich our learning of the yoga philosophy. For those of us more scientific-minded, Joy showed us current research studies strengthening the link between the modern field of psychology and the wisdom traditions. During those 5 months we learned the value of listening to ourselves and others. We expanded our personal tools of resilience, willpower, patience, improving our relationships, and more. These tools are simple to apply, and fun to share with friends and family, creating a ripple effect of positivity! For me, Joy’s classes and programs built a foundation essential for leading a happy, fulfilled, and inspired life!

I originally began studying yoga philosophy and positive psychology with Joy as a private student and later as part of her deeper studies program. It ended up being one of the best things I’ve done for myself. Joy has such a grounded way of speaking about philosophy that makes it relevant to your daily life and her teachings have helped me understand my life from a new perspective and I have tools when I get stuck. It’s been such a powerful learning for how to transform my life in ways I maybe didn’t think were possible when I began studying with her. I have so much gratitude for her as a teacher and for her continual encouragement and support, always cheering me and her other clients on to live bigger, to act instead of merely thinking about it, to focus on the good, on all that is in my life now.
