Contagious Optimism Wellness Group

Positive forward thinking is the ability to find the silver lining in every cloud no matter how difficult yesterday or today may be. Nowadays, many people have lost confidence in themselves and the world around them due to personal hardship, along with economic and political uncertainty worldwide. 

However, each of us possesses personal strengths and wisdom we can draw from to experience our worlds with increased hope, kindness, and gratitude.

Through the sharing of Contagious Optimism co- author’s stories, group members’ personal stories of resilience through challenging times, and providing simple, yet impactful exercises based in Positive Psychology, Dr. Georges will lead group members in boosting positivity and perseverance.

Dr. Colleen Georges is a Nationally Certified Psychologist, Certified Positive Psychology Coach, speaker, educator, and best-selling author who coaches her clients in living and working more joyfully. She runs a private coaching practice where she provides positive psychology life and career coaching, leads community wellness groups, and delivers organizational trainings and speaking engagements.
