Debbie Happy Cohen is a master coach with a graduate degree in counseling. She’s the founder of Joy-Based Living, an online global conversation where people develop the skills to create (internal and external) environments so that JOY can thrive in their lives.

Many people who are committed to having joy in their lives are people who have known its exact opposite. Therefore, we explore many aspects of joy, including its shadows. Awareness, acceptance and action are keys to opening the doors to greater joy; and courage is strengthened when people experience connection.

The Joy-Based Living E-book offers 12 foundational practices to help you get in touch with your feelings, make a deeper commitment to yourself, and step up into becoming who you really are. It’s a great supplement any holistic practice, including therapy and coaching.

  1. I love that you use CPTSR in this discussion. I have begun using it as well as MPD/MPR and DID/DIR… when we have a normal response to trauma, small or extreme, we shouldn’t stigmatize that response by calling it a disorder. It is simple the best response we could have made at the time.

    1. deJoly we are pioneering something so important here and I’m so glad you get it. Our lingo matters because it influences the choices we make and where we choose to place our power. Amen sister!

  2. Good & vital stuff shared here–thank you, Debbie–“not settling for less” in both self-care/self-love & all my friendships is way more important & significant to my well-being & wholistic health than whether or not I’m wearing lipstick or pants when I walk out the door! 🙂
