The Daring Way™

In 2019, Kay became a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (CDWF). The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. During the process, facilitators explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. Participants are invited to examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding them back and identify the new choices and practices that will move them toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

Further information is available at The Daring Way™.

As a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator, Kay utilizes this research and material with clients when appropriate. She is also available to come to your group, office, or organization to lead Daring Way™ sessions of varying lengths. Contact us for more information.
