What people are saying about the self-guided
Expert Emotional Self-Care
to Stop Negative Thinking course.

In the first week of class, we were taught an exercise…that night, I felt healed. I read the card I wrote that night daily, and I felt healed that very week from something I have been trying to get healed from for 9 years at this point.


I didn’t know how to be in this world when bad things happened, and ate to deal with my feelings. Now I have tools and skills…I finally learned how to live life without eating over my emotions


This is the best investment I have ever made…and would recommend this course for anyone who is suffering.
