“Grow Optimism – Nancy Brownsberger, is a kick ass, heart centered practitioner who tells it like it is. Love her!”

“I have had the opportunity to work with Nancy to set up opportunities to support educators within our early learning and childcare community on a variety of topics over the years. Most recently, we have worked with Nancy a number of times throughout COVID. She has created webinars, live sessions (virtually) and resources on a number of topics to support our mental health and well-being. Nancy has been a fantastic support to our community that many have been able to access.”

“Nancy is one of a kind! I have had amazing conversations with her, and they’ve given me drive and focus. She’s got a calming energy that sheds light on your discussion and gives me new food for thought! I’ve recommended her services several times, and will continue to do so!”

“Nancy wonderfully holds space and gently leads me to a healthier way of seeing my experiences and my response to them. I always feel encouraged and hopeful after a session with clear, with doable action steps to take. Her humour, passion and joy in her work is also beneficial.”
