If you want to dive into happiness, Jonah Paquette, Psy.D., has researched and written a lot on it. He is a psychologist, author, and international speaker. Jonah is the author of Happily Even After, Awestruck, The Happiness Toolbox, and Real Happiness.

I own both Awestruck and The Happiness Toolbox. His continuing education course on awe, happiness, and gratitude was so interesting! I love passing this information on, so people can apply it.


These habits are also ones that I help the people I work with adopt to improve their mood. – I assign homework, and we use worksheets. — like from Awestruck and The Happiness Toolkit. If you’ve been feeling depressed or low recently or for quite some time, send me an email to reach out. Let’s see if we’re a good fit to work together. It’s easy to get started working with me.

If you’re reading this and you’re not in Pennsylvania, but would like to work on these habits, we can do that. I’m licensed in PA, but I coach nationwide. Coaching is a non-clinical service. It is a separate service and business. Let me know that you’re interested in coaching and working on building healthy habits when you contact me.
