How We Work

Launching Legacies helps our clients develop, live, and leave their legacy by using the science of positive psychology and behavior change theory. We coach an individual, family, or group to disrupt dysfunctional cycles allowing them to overcome challenges, create new futures, and lead a life of greater fulfillment.

Everyone is different and the approach we take when working with an individual, family, or group will vary based on their specific needs. That being said, we follow a 4-step framework with our clients which allows us to assess where the client is in their life and what they need to move forward in building their legacy.


Often people do not have the time or the ability to step back and take measure of their current situation.

By asking questions and with guided discussions, we help our clients understand where they are in their life, how they got there, and where they would like to be. We help develop an understanding of the legacy they want  and construct the plan to help them achieve it.


Our beliefs about obstacles and how we approach them play an outsized role in how we navigate past them. These views are often unconscious, based on our past, and can limit our ability to successfully overcome obstacles.

We talk with our clients and explore their existing views about themselves, others, and past obstacles. We chip away at the feelings and false ideas that are typically associated with broken cycles and work towards creating new and empowering beliefs.

Positive Psychology Tools

The right tools can make all the difference.

We work with our clients to identify the tools THEY need to overcome their obstacles. We spend time teaching what the tools are, how to use them constructively and consistently, and together we come up with an action plan.


Actions speak louder than words.

Together, we walk with our clients providing the ongoing support, perspective, and coaching that is needed to work through their obstacles and achieve their legacy.

what is positive psychology?

Positive Psychology was established by Martin Seligmen, the former president of the American Psychological Association, in 1998 and is the scientific study of what makes life most worth living. It is an approach to studying human thoughts, feelings, and behavior, with a focus on strengths instead of weaknesses, building the good in life instead of repairing the bad, and taking the lives of average people up to “great” instead of focusing solely on moving those who are struggling up to “normal” (Peterson, 2008).”
