You can learn to be happy

There is an epidemic of unhappiness in our country. One out of every 5 women is on antidepressants. 


You may have a vague feeling of unhappiness or stress from overwhelm and expectations. I work with scientifically proven methods that increase your inner-peace and well-being.

By learning practical happiness habits, you can relieve what brings you down such as: anxiety, fearfulness, blame, shame and complaining. As you make these habits a daily practice, you will find you no longer feel dismissed, unheard or unseen, and be able to respond in a more productive way to people instead of being in reaction to people and experiences.


Tiny changes bring remarkable results.

Meet Traci, Your Happily Empowered Certified Trainer

When I was in my mid-twenties, I felt I was living the American dream. I was married to a loving man, had two adorable children, had a career, and owned a home. But after several years I knew I wasn’t as happy as I wanted to be. I was overwhelmed and often felt alone. My husband and I got marriage counseling but it did not help and we divorced. 

During the years that followed I read many books on self-growth and self-improvement. During that time, I went through the Happy for no Reason Program by Marci Shimoff. I applied the happiness principles to my life and that’s when my happiness took a quantum leap. My overwhelm turned into appreciating what was working in my life and now I appreciate the people in my life more. I forgave people who have hurt me in some way and forgave myself for poor decisions I’ve made. Now I have a sense of happiness, peace, and well-being that comes from deep inside me. No matter where you are now in your life, you too can take a quantum leap in your happiness. Now I want to share this with others.

I have worked for 30 plus years for the State of Ca, specializing in the care of those with mental illness and those with developmental disabilities. I have volunteered with Priest River Ministries for Women, providing services for women and children who have experienced domestic violence. 


Through Happily Empowered, I offer support to live your highest expression of life and to meet your goals in self-growth.

Working with Traci has helped me to work with my brain's neuroplasticity - the ability to retrain my thinking by replacing the negative thoughts with positive thoughts.


My happiness increased dramatically. I am less reactive to negative interactions and welcome the positive in my live more deeply. 

Thank you, Traci, for sharing the happiness habits that have helped me to strengthen the happiness of joy, love, kindness, and compassion that I bring to my life and to my work.
