Testimonials

Working with Rebecca Wilkinson was an exceptional opportunity. As a student intern, I was granted the multifaceted experience every undergrad yearns for through one incredible outlet- Mrs. Wilkinson. Through the many dynamic environments Rebecca exposed to me, I was able to witness her passion, excitability, knowledge, humility, and humorously “crazy” antics as she did what she loved. I observed Rebecca handle any obstacle faced with poise and a chuckle, adhering to her concentration on positive psychology. Additionally, she sincerely acknowledged every individual she encountered, demonstrating her concern and appreciation for them.

"I felt lighter, more positive. I had really hoped for such a shift and it happened."

Lisa Hixenbaugh

Workshop Participant

"At the GAO, we are trying to get a more linear audience to explore psychological or emotional aspects of themselves for the purpose of having more balance in their work and professional lives. Gioia and Rebecca accomplish this from the minute that they walk into the room not just because the material they are presenting is so relevant but because they have an air about them that is fundamentally engaging and relevant."

Ezekiel Rothman, LPC, ATR-BC

HCO Counseling Services/Government Accountability Office

"At first we were cautious about the introduction of art in the workshops because we did not want to put off the participants, but Gioia and Rebecca skillfully wove the art experientials in a way that was inviting to the audience. As it turns out the main comments that we heard was that the art made them enjoy the workshop more and they were surprised at how the art was a really useful tool in grasping the material."

Amy Melrose

Workshop Participant

"I work with at risk adolescents. Keeping a focus on positive psychology helps me convey to them that they have many great strengths and wonderful traits. It is empowering for me and the client and it immediately gets us off to a great start in working together. I left the course each week feeling great."

"Rebecca and Gioia’s programs are eagerly anticipated by our participants. They are extremely popular and well-attended. There is often a waiting list and many of our participants return again and again for their programs."

Darien Reece, Program Director

"I found the style/method of teaching to be very open and receptive. The balance of lecture and experiential activities provided an opportunity to further grasp the concepts and reflect on content of what happiness meant and how to see it."
