with "Bold Move"

Moderator: Dr. Robin Buckley

Turn your anxiety into strength with Harvard-based psychotherapist Dr. Luana Marques’ 3-step method to living boldly—her clinically-proven approach that inspires patients from CEOs to at-risk teens.

Bold Move is Harvard-based psychotherapist Dr. Luana Marques’ unique, tried, and tested method to get you out of your rut and find the courage to create a more confident and meaningful life. Dr. Luana pinpoints anxiety at the root of avoidance and shows how you can overcome it and achieve your goals.

Dr. Luana understands anxiety. After decades of research, teaching, and clinical practice, she realized that the coping techniques she learned from her mother and grandmother while growing up in poverty in Brazil mimicked science-based CBT therapy. Now, she has synthesized that knowledge, developing a 3-step path that works for everyone—from teens in crisis to executives experiencing burnout.

Bold Move includes concrete examples and exercises backed by the most recent clinical and scientific research. Dr. Luana’s 3-step plan helps you recognize thinking patterns that leave you feeling tense, anxious, and worried, and outlines the many forms that avoidance can take, including seeking comfort from others.

Dr. Luana Marques is an associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard University, founder and director of Community Psychiatry PRIDE at Massachusetts General Hospital, which brings clinical and training initiatives to underserved communities, and served as the first Latina president of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA). She lives outside of Boston, Massachusetts.

The evening’s moderator, Dr. Robin Buckley has her PhD in clinical psychology from Hofstra University and is an executive coach, professional speaker, and author. Her work as an expert in the field has been featured on multiple media platforms, including Entrepreneur.com, Thrive Global, Authority Magazine, Nike, podcasts, news radio, and the TEDx stage.
