When chronically stressed, the higher brain becomes less capable of creative thinking, logical thinking, memory retention and learning.
This chronic stress and overwhelm interferes with our normal competency, causing us to make more mistakes in judgment, action and reaction.
This affects our health, our relationships and our performance at home and at work.
The problem compounds when we become exhausted by stress and keep trying to over-ride its effects.
Instead of settling for just putting up with your stress, you can access your higher brain functions by learning the skill of mindful Stress Shifting.

As I went through each module, I was able to really focus on the stressors in my life and how they have impacted me over the years.
Being able to identify my stress reactions, stress symptoms, self-judgments, coping mechanisms, and social survival strategy has been very valuable.
To be able to have these insights, and to now have the tools of being able to shift my chronic stress, is absolutely amazing!

"Stress Shifting Gave Me Power and Freedom"
"Once I began experiencing this course, I realized it is not your average program - it's an amazing tool to move through stuck places into power and freedom! I loved how it used breathing techniques during the affirmation stages to differentiate from one sentence to the next, making it quite different and very helpful! It moved me gently from one phase to the next so I could process each segment in my own time. I received so much value, I'm recommending it to others now. Thank you so much for creating the Stress Shifter course!"
Lou Ann Bruck, RN
"Stress Shifting Improved My Pain and Asthma"
"I’ve been using Stress Shifter for a few weeks now and I’ve noticed a significant decrease in my overall stress level. My stress shows up as low back pain, shoulder pain, and asthma. These physical symptoms are much lower now and so are my emotional experiences of stress. For example, in two weeks, I’ve had only one instance of coughing and wheezing and that used to be a nearly every day occurrence, and my shoulders feel great! The Stress Shifter course helped me become aware of how my doubts and fears trigger my stress reactions."
Amber Keating, LCSW, PYT
"Stress Shifting Improved My Relationship"
"The stress I wanted to shift with this course was to stop worrying so much about my daughter not being able to find a job. I got so many major insights from the course! Some had been in the back of my mind but I had been afraid to own them or say them out loud. I feel so much clearer about my responsibility and I have more confidence in following my values. I don’t blame myself now if what I’m trying doesn’t work out the way I want it to, and I have the tools to stay on track when stress comes up. This has dramatically shifted my stress levels."
