The Courage to Begin Again: 
The Empowered Transitions Program

"The Groups are absolutely magical and the healing work we do together is beyond belief!"~ RP

"I cannot believe that I was so terrified to join this group I wish I could attend every week at least twice a week!  The facilitator is AMAZING... the learning, the friendships, the support...its just the best"~ JB

"I've paid ten times as much for programs that have provided a fraction of the learning, support, and tools.  This program is incredible and just keeps scaffolding."~ MS

In Empowered Transitions™  you'll have the support you need in order to prepare yourself for--and embrace-- the changes you seek to make. 


Groups are limited in size and meet over the course of six weeks.  Facilitated by Dr. Laura Weber Garrison, the Groups meet weekly for two hours and are part group therapy, part Mastermind, part personal work, and part interactive. The Program is structured and confidential. 


All the work we do together is positive, private, non-judgmental, co-creative, and completely supportive.  The Groups are dynamic, fun, and --if you show up fully for yourself and for the Group work-- can be incredibly life-changing on many levels.

Some of the areas that will be addressed and facilitated during this Program: 

  • The impact and effects of trauma on the brain

  • The relationship between trauma, chronic pain, and various illnesses

  • Reconnecting with the body’s intelligence and (re)learning to trust the ‘body’s barometer’

  • Breaking free from destructive coping mechanisms and unhealthy patterns

  • Letting go of shame, guilt, toxic feelings, and chronic sadness and anger

  • Moving forward into a life of peace, happiness, and loving connections

  • Setting big goals and moving forward with transitions

  • Six, 90-minute Group meetings 

  • Program Workbook with Weekly Handouts

  • Email access to your Facilitator

"I've accomplished more in six weeks in the Empowered Transitions Program with Dr. Garrison than I had in a ten-month coaching program somewhere else. Not only was it fun, I learned so much more than I expected.  We laughed, we cried, we healed."~LB

"I was an angry, hostile, blaming-everyone-else person when I started the program and I'm here to tell you that I've crossed what Laura calls "the chasm of darkness" and I LOVE MY LIFE NOW!  She's been through the sh*t, she walks the talk and she'll be there to hug you on the other side. 

If I can make it through hell, so can you."~ BF

"I'm astounded to see how far we have all progressed in such a short time.

I LOVE, love, love this program!"~ SM
