Dr. Allott will provide the achievable tools to thrive while being at home!

Hope arises from the ability to have waypower (a path and support to problem solve obstacles) and willpower (identifying your goal and staying in your responsive brain versus your reactive brain).

This is a time to hold on to hope. Create goals to know that you thrived in a time of adversity, and manage our daily energy and mental clarity so when this Great Pause is turned off we have new skills and new self-knowledge to thrive.
