Vivian's workshop was great for me to see what I was creating in my relationships that was not healthy!! I am putting down boundaries at every turn and saying NO when necessary and that feels great!
She is a wonderful facilitator, kept it interesting, fun and creative. She kept people engaged and broke things down so we could understand. I love your sense of humor and spirit. I especially enjoyed the magazine cover project.

I had a lot of fun in this class. Viv
knows her tools and has a lot of creative ideas to move you through blocks. Also, when needed, you were able to take our thoughts and ideas and put them into wording that became usable. You have great energy - positive and enthusiastic - and I always left the sessions feeling excited and hopeful.

"Ongoing benefits I am experiencing are less fear stopping me from doing creative new things, more willingness to dive in and let the chips fall where they may! I feel freeing and more joyful in everything I undertake. I think you are a terrific facilitator, enthusiastic and passionate about what you teach, careful to include everyone in the group, supportive and encouraging." ~ Workshop participant, Denise B
