Reviews

"I've been to many workshops where I walked away bored and feeling like I already knew almost everything presented. Even though I've done a lot of reading about Positive Psychology, I did not feel that way about your workshop. You had so many great stories and interesting research results that I felt like I was still really learning both from your content and the way you presented it. Thanks so much."
Kristie Conditt, Psychologist, Cedar Falls, IA


"I would like to say that your seminar on 'Happiness: How Positive Psychology Changes Our Lives' was great! I truly enjoyed your presentation. You were informative, provided a wealth of information, and made the day fun. You conducted a fantastic seminar and I am applying what I have learned."
