SNAP! From Chaos to Calm

Helping you move out of emotional chaos and into a state of calmness, my SNAP Method introduces evidence-based mindfulness practices that are easy to learn, remember, and do anywhere, even in the heat of the moment.

This handy acronym has the clever addition of a somatic component to help people handle chaos with the “snap” of their fingers. Trained in multiple mindfulness and human development systems, I’ve distilled my knowledge into a program that meets people where they are — overwhelmed, overextended, and over the top — and figured out what works for the millions of multi-tasking women, parents, caregivers, and anxious individuals who have never felt more perpetually pulled in multiple directions.

SNAP! is for time-constrained people who desperately need new responses to life stressors while still juggling their daily worlds of family, work, relationships, health, and home.

“The SNAP! method is a useful addition to the library of self-care and mindful approaches to achieving a balance between one’s emotional life and the demands of modern living.” ~ Premium US Reviews
