Are you...

Worried your boy will be kicked out of preschool?

Irritated that your girl and her big emotions are running the household?

Concerned that your boy is too attached to succeed?

Nervous about how much your daughter is lying?

Afraid your child will end up alone and miserable?

Determined not to become "just like your mom"?

Scared your teen is getting lost in drugs or porn?

Anxious about the lack of control in your home?



Staying in your lousy marriage for the sake of your children?

Arguing with your partner about parenting, finances, or more?

Making yourself small?

Convinced you married a loser/jerk/beast?

Doubting yourself?

Suspicious that you aren't "normal"?

Ashamed that you aren't happy?

Wondering if your dreams are unrealistic?

Making choices you know aren't right so that you don't "rock the boat"?

We can help.

We believe in neurological empowerment.

Have you ever gotten a glimpse of your best self? Have you noticed those moments when you're feeling unstoppable, on track, inspired, benevolent, and generous? It feels so good, doesn't it?

 And then there are those other moments, right? The ones in which our faces scrunch up into scowls, when sharp words fly, and painful thoughts are everywhere... When enough of these moments string together, we feel depressed and disconnected, scared that our lives have gotten off track. 

Want to know a secret?

We already have the full capability to be awesome. Isn't that great?! We don't have to buy anything, or say any particular words, or meet any specific people. That "best self" we enjoy so much is available to us if we can just act from the part of our brains that governs that stuff. The moment-to-moment state of our neurochemistry determines how we think, and feel, and act.
Really stirred up by a triggering situation? Odds are that your brain has shifted processing to its lower, more instinctual parts - hello scowly face and sharp words!
Feeling calm and happy? You've climbed the stairs out of the neural basement back into the upper "executive" brain where we become the superhuman version of ourselves - quick thinking, empathetic, creative, and unflappable dynamos.

A happy successful life is made possible the more time we spend in our upper brains. It's that simple. We're already wired for it, we just have to influence which part of the brain is running the show. So how do we direct our brain processing? How do we manage our neurochemistry so that more of our time is spent operating from our upper brains?

That's our mission,




- visionaries and leaders to operate consistently from their upper brains

- conscious parents to facilitate access to executive functionality with their children.

We are all good people. We just need help gaining (and maintaining) access to our best selves. It isn't rocket science. It's brain science.

1 hr Discovery Session


Spend an hour telling us where you'd like to be in your life - what that looks like, what it tastes like, what it feels like, and also what your life is like now - the good, the bad, the ugly. We'll discuss how to get from point A to point B without becoming something you're not, or something you loathe. We see who you are - your best shining self - and we know that's your way forward!

Our library of social and emotional learning (SEL) tools are designed to aid children in the process of developing emotional vocabulary, awareness, and identification - not only creating the opportunity for a deeper sense of trust and belonging, but also building the foundation for advanced learning, life-long success and happiness, and the emergence of empathy. Feeleez tools form a bridge between the emotions and motivations of a child and her cargivers, enhancing the environment essential for healthy emotional development.

Feeleez makes SEL easy, accessible, and fun.
