Isabelle Tierney, M.A., LMFT, is a licensed therapist, stress management specialist, transformational teacher, and coach. She is the CEO of Choice Point, a company dedicated to providing tools and services that help people reduce stress in their lives and choose wellbeing. Under Choice Point, Isabelle created the “Feel Good Life” and “Stress Reset” methodologies to equip her clients with stress management tools for home and work. Her flagship course, The Feel Good Life Foundational Course, empowers people to choose a life with less stress and more ease, joy, and inspiration. Isabelle holds two master’s degrees: she completed her M.A. in Child Development at Tufts University and received her M.A. in International Relations and Communication from Boston University. Isabelle also graduated with a certificate in Brennan Healing Science from the Barbara Brennan School of Healing and is now an energy healer.

Isabelle joins me today to share her “Feel Good Scale” and discuss a framework that can help people manage stress and live a life of ease and inspiration. She discusses the “Feel Good Scale’s” red, yellow, and green zones and explains how they can help us identify our stress triggers. She describes the physiological, emotional, and mental signs that show we’re in the red zone. She also highlights the value of slowing down to open our lives to inspiration and underscores her three-step action plan that can move us to a life of peace, joy, and wellbeing.

“When we slow down—when we choose to surrender, to listen, to allow, or to receive—something greater than our rational thinking can show up and guide us to create astounding businesses that are peaceful, effortless, and inspired.” - Isabelle Tierney
