Courses are self-directed and super-powered.

There are somethings that you need to learn by doing. And you need to learn them on your schedule, not mine.

Courses are here for you:

  • self-directed so that you can refer to them as you need it,

  • return as often as you need to

  • densely informational so you learn what you need to know without a lot of extra fluff

From videos to worksheets, these courses are designed to address specific problems my clients face, and to provide support where you need it the most!


What do you get in a Thrive PhD Course?

You get access to:

  • A private, password protected site that is open 24/7/365 so that you can reference the material or work through the lessons whenever you’d like.

  • Videos, written information, worksheets, and resources to support your learning, and future exploration

  • Forever access - once you buy, it’s yours forever!



The original class! If you have a project that's hanging over your head, that you feel a twinge (or worse!) in your stomach when you think about it, then jumpstart! is for you. No matter where you are in the academic pipeline - from grad student to administrator - we can all use help in shifting what we believe about our work, our schedules, and our self-worth.

Jumpstart! is four weeks of exercises, with downloads and videos every week - make no mistake, this is a high-powered, high intensity way to dig in to your blocks, and find sustainable ways around them.

If you want a preview of what Jumpstart! is like - check out the Thrive PhD webinar, Constructive Clarity: Evaluation without shame! This is sort of like the pre-lesson to the content of the course - and it's free!
