As a child, Brittney had a front row seat to the direct and negative results caused by a lack of awareness and thoughtful communication. She realized later in life how emotional intelligence works in concert with our higher self to create a life of fulfillment, purpose, connection, and success. "At the age of 15, I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and later OCD and ADD, which came as no surprise. My family has a long history of anxiety, depression, and mental illness. Unfortunately, I quickly fell victim to the mentality that my mental health, well-being, and success was out of my control. I used my anxiety and ADD as the reason for why I struggled in school and failed to make friends; and, I used my anxiety and OCD as an excuse for my frequent emotional outburst and meltdowns. It was only after discovering and apply the skill of emotional intelligence that my life completely changed. I learned how to understand and control my emotions, and I developed compassion for myself, which snowballed into my current success and fulfillment in life and business. It brings me immense joy to have made it my life's work to share this undervalued, yet essential, skill with the world." The cornerstone of Brittney-Nichole’s approach stems from her desire to teach others that they too can how to take back control of their lives by embodying emotional intelligence as a foundational practice in life, family, and business. Through her two businesses, Brittney-Nichole teaches others how to become aware of the needs behind their strong emotions, get curious and comfortable with all emotions (pleasant or unpleasant), and how to manage triggers and reframe conflict. Through her practice, Brittney-Nichole applies equal parts experience, education, and compassion to change individual's lives and business for generations to come. Her breadth of understanding on the subject, dedication to solving the root cause, and not simply the symptoms, and her holistic approach in treating mind, body, and spirit are what set her apart from a seemingly endless pool of “life coaches” and emotional intelligence facilitators.
