Emerging Well - San Antonio, TX

Life is generally complicated at any age. We can’t always control outcomes, but we can learn to apply practical, evidence-based skills to live better and achieve our goals. The process begins with self-insight, dedicating focused attention to understand how we function and why; and where our own thought patterns, emotions, and behaviors stand in our way or propel us forward.

From there we can develop solutions and take purposeful action to enrich our lives. Highly effective people attend to self-mastery. Effectiveness is simply a result. The beautiful thing about life is we can choose to begin this work at any point, regardless of where we are or what we’ve done, and create a future we can be proud of. 


Emerging Well is a 12-week program designed to combine behavioral science, evidence-based coaching, and skills training to empower emerging adults ages 18-24 in San Antonio, TX. 

The program is delivered weekly through a combination of group education workshops followed by individual coaching sessions for deep application to each participant(s) life.

Groups are delivered in-person, once weekly through a 1-hour workshop and limited to a maximum of 12 participants. 1:1 sessions are delivered virtually by a Certified Youth Resilience Coach via once weekly 30-minute Zoom online meetings or phone. 

Our priority is equipping emerging adults to attend to their own well-being while building skills and capacity for success in life, school, and work. We do that through these science-based channels:

Resource Optimization

Helping you identify and leverage the internal and external tools presently available to you to begin moving toward your goals. We facilitate your self-awareness around concepts like identity, strengths, interests, values, and desires to enhance your self-mastery.

Personal Development

We enhance your sense of agency to choose goals that matter to you, pursue those goals, and achieve them. We support you as you prioritize self-care, self-management, and tap into self-determined motivation, meaning, and purpose on your way to achievement.

Social Development

We facilitate your social and emotional learning and related competency building. Through this focus, you become more aware of the functional role of social interactions and relationships to success and well-being.

Academic and Professional Development

This work is about goal-orientation for fit in education, job paths, and prosocial groups conducive to your goals; and skill building for effectiveness and efficiency. We coach you through the research and considerations necessary to begin to establish self-determined life direction, related planning, and action steps around long-term goals. We also coach to build psychological capital – confidence, positive expectations, hope for your future, and resilience to strengthen your capacity to thrive through the journey.
