The distinction between social anxiety disorder and social anxiety is a matter of severity; reference to one includes the other. The recovery tools and techniques provided apply to most emotional malfunctions, including depression, substance abuse, ADHD, PTSD, generalized anxiety, and self-esteem and motivation issues. These malfunctions originate homogeneously, their trajectories differentiated by environment, experience, and the diversity of human thought and behavior.

Recovery is regaining possession of something stolen or lost. Self-empowerment is making a conscious decision to become stronger and more confident in controlling our lives. In neuroses such as anxiety, depression, and comorbidities, what has been stolen is our emotional well-being and quality of life. In self-empowerment, it is the loss of self-esteem and motivation. Accordingly, both recovery and self-empowerment deal with regaining what has been lost.
- Plasticity: capable of being altered or molded or
- Neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections in response to learning or experience.
- Reactive neuroplasticity is our brain’s natural response to things over which we have limited to no control – stimuli we absorb but do not initiate or focus on. A car alarm, lightning, the smell of baked goods. Our neural network automatically restructures itself to what happens around us.
- Active neuroplasticity happens through intentional pursuits like creating, yoga, and journaling. We control active neuroplasticity because we consciously choose the activity. A significant component of active neuroplasticity is our altruistic and compassionate social behavior, e.g., teaching, compassion, and random acts of kindness.
- Proactive neuroplasticity is rapid, concentrated neurological stimulation to change the polarity of our neural network from toxic to positive. This is best consummated by DRNI – the deliberate, repetitive neural input of information.
Recovery and self-empowerment workshops have three objectives: to (1) replace or overwhelm our negative thoughts and behaviors with healthy, productive ones, (2) produce rapid, neurological stimulation to change the polarity of our neural network, and (3) regenerate our self-esteem. The successful realization of these objectives compels us to recognize and celebrate the extraordinariness of our lives, confirming we are desirable and consequential.

Support Groups and Group Sessions provided pro bono.
Social Anxiety and Proactive Neuroplasticity
Since 2021; 385+ members. All day, every day, we experience fear, anxiety, and loneliness. SAD makes us feel helpless, hopeless, undesirable, and worthless. We worry about criticism, disapproval, and rejection, never quite ‘fitting in.’ We feel socially inferior and incompetent. Utilizing an integration of neuroscience and psychology, we develop individually targeted tools and techniques that accelerate and consolidate our recovery from social anxiety.
Our paradigmatic approach to recovery targets the personality through empathy, collaboration, and program integration, utilizing scientific and clinically practical methods. We provide (1) a welcoming and confidential space for members to share their experiences and meet people with similar concerns and (2) the tools and techniques for recovery from social anxiety.
The Social Anxiety and Proactive Neuroplasticity group conducts online group sessions focusing on issues impacting our daily lives.
LBGTQ+ Social Anxiety Group
Since 2997, 750+ members. The LGBTQ+ community is almost twice as susceptible to social anxiety as our heterosexual and cisgender counterparts. Social anxiety disorder makes us feel helpless and hopeless. We isolate ourselves due to our fears of criticism and rejection. Our group’s paradigmatic approach targets the personality through empathy, collaboration, and program integration utilizing scientific and clinically practical methods, including active and proactive neuroplasticity and cognitive-behavioral self-modification.
The LGBTQ+ Social Anxiety Group conducts online group sessions focusing on issues that impact our daily lives. Our primary objective is to provide a secure and confidential environment where individuals can share their stories and issues and get answers from persons who understand and care.
ReChanneling: Recovery and Self-Empowerment
Since 2020; 120+ members. Proactive neuroplasticity fundamentally applies to pursuing personal goals and objectives – harnessing our intrinsic aptitude for extraordinary living.
It accelerates learning by deliberately compelling our brain to repattern its neural circuitry. It is what makes learning and registering new experiences possible. All information notifies our brain to restructure, producing a correlated change in behavior and perspective.
The deliberate, repetitive neural input of information (DRNI) accelerates and consolidates learning, empowering us to transform our thoughts, behaviors, and perspectives, creating healthy new mindsets, skills, and abilities.
We hold monthly online group sessions on the science and implementation of proactive and active neuroplasticity, learning how to successfully devise a structured plan to pursue our goals and objectives.
Online Social Anxiety Recovery Workshop
Space is Limited
The ultimate objectives of our Social Anxiety Recovery Workshop are to:
- Provide the tools and techniques to replace years of toxic thoughts and behaviors with rational, healthy ones, dramatically alleviating the self-destructive symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other emotional malfunctions.
- Compel the rediscovery and reinvigoration of the individual’s character strengths, virtues, and attributes.
- Design a targeted behavioral self-modification process to help the individual re-engage their social comfort and status.
- Provide the means to control our symptoms rather than allowing them to control us.

Online Self-Empowerment Workshop
Space is Limited
The ultimate objectives of our Self-Empowerment Workshop are to:
- Provide the tools and techniques of proactive neuroplasticity to accelerate and consolidate goals and objectives.
- Recognize and utilize our character strengths, virtues, and achievements.
- Design a targeted process to regenerate our self-esteem and motivation.
- Replace adverse habits with healthy new ones that underscore our potential.

What are active and proactive neuroplasticity, and why is their collaboration the most efficient means of learning and unlearning? What are the scientific and psychological validations?
Neuroplasticity is our brain’s continuous adaptation and restructuring to information. Science recognizes that our neural network is dynamic and malleable – realigning its pathways and rebuilding its circuits in response to all stimuli.
Hemispheric synchronization is the collaboration of our left and right brain hemispheres to achieve optimal coherence.
Both proactive and active neuroplasticity are necessary for recovery-remission from emotional malfunction. They are the two processes of what Jeffrey Schwartz coined self-directed neuroplasticity. Our brain’s right hemisphere manages our emotions, creativity, intuition, and imagination. That is the function of active neuroplasticity. Proactive neuroplasticity attends to our left hemisphere’s rational, analytical, and quantitative pursuits.
Neuroplasticity is the most efficient means of self-empowerment or recovery from emotional dysfunction. We dramatically accelerate and consolidate learning by deliberately compelling our brain to repattern its neural circuitry. Proactive and active neuroplasticity empowers us to consciously transform our thoughts and behaviors, creating healthy new mindsets, skills, and abilities. It gives us the power to take control of our emotional well-being and quality of life.
