Bio: To summarize the message of the Positive Psychology movement is to remind our field that it has been deformed. Psychology is not just the study of disease, weakness and damage, it also is the study of strength and virtues. Treatment is not just fixing what is wrong it is also building what is right. Psychology is not just about illness or ill health, it is about work, education, insight, love, growth and play. In this quest for what is best, Positive Psychology does not rely on wishful thinking, self-deception or hand-waiving, instead it tries to adapt what's best in the scientific method to the unique problems that human behavior presents in all its complexity. I graduated NYU with an Applied Psychology degree and worked in a Fortune 100 company for four years before coming back to Psychology. After careful financial planning, taking Harvard Positive Psychology classes, and reading medical journals about the science of happiness, I quit my job to become a life coach. I decided that it was only through living an inspired life that I can inspire others. So I paid off my student debt, traveled all over the world (Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Greece, Netherlands, Japan and China), volunteered at a panda reserve, skydived in the US, paraglided in Austria, and scuba-dived in the Cayman Islands. I spoke to many strangers, and met people from all over the world. Now I am back in New York teaching others about the science of happiness. My adventures started when I learned to ask the right questions, "What makes me happy?" Now I use the tools I have learned from a decade of research to apply to my own life and yours.
