Rising Strong™ Workshop – Spring 2019

Chaille DeFaria (CDWF-Candidate) will be starting an 8 session workshop in Los Angeles based on Brené Brown’s book, Rising Strong. 

We will look at the physics of vulnerability. We will explore how to recognize when we are in the midst of something hard. We will get curious with the stories we make up, and learn how to get back up so that we can make new choices.

Workshop Information: Enrollment is now open. 

My fee of $350 is based on a 2 hour workshop for 8 sessions

$75 deposit to hold your space

Rising Strong workbook included

About Rising Strong™

About The Daring Way™
During the process, we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent and lead

2018 TLC BFRB Conference



Here are some powerful and moving take aways by Carlee

(Buzz Be Well) https://www.carleebusby.com/about/

I’m still riding the high from my first BFRB conference. To be honest, even though I have been meaning to go to one of these conferences for 15 years, I had fairly low expectations. I told myself that I already knew everything there was to know about BFRBs and assumed I wouldn’t get too much out of it. But I was so wrong. So wrong. This event completely exceeded my expectations.

This is My Brave Show

This is My Brave

Auditions are closed! We have our LA cast for “This Is My Brave” and what a courageous cast it is. Save the date: January 22, 2017. Please donate or consider being a sponsor:


I am co-producing the show and 100 % of proceeds goes to ending the stigma around mental illness (anxiety, depression, bfrb’s and other related disorders.)


At least 2-3 out of 50 people have a BFRB, but 50 out of 50 people struggle with feelings of sadness and low self-esteem; feelings often exacerbated by BFRB disorders. Though there is not yet a cure for BFRBs, the shame created by these disorders is curable through raising awareness and empowering those with BFRBs to find support and community.
