Path to Happiness

Keynote Presenter and Speaker

Book Molly Stranahan for your next event. Research shows happier people are healthier, more productive and have better relationships.  Molly’s engaging speaking style will energize and inspire your group, and help audience members change their lives. Besides speaking on happiness, relationships, values, money and life purpose, she has spoken at numerous conferences and forums related to philanthropy, values-congruent investing and family business issues. By sharing what psychology knows about the choices we can make to live happier, healthier lives, Molly can help people understand what they control and don't control; then they can focus on what they can change and let go of what they can't or aren't willing to change. Her particular focus is on looking at the impact our beliefs and attitudes have on our feelings, because although we often don't recognize it, our beliefs are the one thing totally in our control to change to make our lives better.

Individual Sessions

Individual sessions offer a safe place to talk about whatever is getting you down or causing you stress as those things block your natural state of happiness.  You will learn new ways to think about what is going on in your life that allow you to cope with the stresses of life with greater peace. It is not therapy.  You aren't signing up to come to weekly 50-minute sessions.  Molly blocks two hours so she can learn about you and what is causing you unhappiness. Together, you explore what you can change, then see if it makes sense to schedule a shorter follow-up session.  There is no diagnosis because Molly doesn't think there is something wrong with you.  However, that also means there is no health insurance reimbursement. You only pay for the time you use at a rate of $120 per hour. Sessions can be in-person or by telephone, which can be supplemented with email.  Before you commit to a consultation, email to set up a complimentary phone conversation.
