Personal Life

Upstream offers impactful life consulting, emotional intelligence and empowerment training, and growth services for individuals and couples who seek transformative, proven results.

We understand how difficult it can be to reach out to others when you are struggling. Not knowing what to expect and the thought of being vulnerable can be terrifying. We also understand the frustration of trying everything and nothing seems to change the way we feel. It is why Upstream exists. 

What we do is very different. We demonstrate how your brain, emotions, and communication work together to create your current situation and guide you through our "Upstream" process that puts you in control of your life, relationships, and state-of-mind; today and every day. Our clients, some of whom have exhausted many other avenues, are amazed at how quickly, and drastically, their mindsets and lives begin to improve. And, any fears they have about reaching out, are replaced with excitement and optimism.

You learn how to: 

  • Clearly see how your current thinking affects your life.

  • Control how you think and feel and behave and influence the outcomes in your life. 

  • Communicate effectively

  • Prevent others from pushing your buttons

  • Become assertive

  • Manage emotions such as anger, stress, anxiety

  • Break generational cycles and overcome trauma

  • Improve relationship in your life

  • Become more self-aware, self-disciplined and other aware

  • Increase emotional intelligence

  • Live life. Not survive it.
