Guest Speaker: Lindsay Fletcher Hardie, PhD, Sierra Legacy Consulting, LLC
Host: John A. Warnick, Esq., Founder, Purposeful Planning Institute
Description: This presentation will provide an introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Coaching (ACC) by using Dr. Hardie’s personal experience as a “married-in” to illustrate key concepts. The ACC approach integrates mindfulness, values clarification, and committed action within a deep tradition of behavioral science. You will learn an acronym based on the word ACCEPT that provides coaches and advisors with a clear, accessible model for helping your clients to get unstuck and focus on what they care about most.
Lindsay Fletcher Hardie, PhD has been practicing meditation and mindfulness for over twenty years and psychotherapy for twelve. She received a doctorate degree in clinical psychology from the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) in 2010. Her mentor, Dr. Steven Hayes, developed a therapeutic approach that combines behavioral science and mindfulness practices, called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). This therapy model identifies the processes that she has found so helpful from mindfulness traditions and defined them in a way that can be easily taught and studied. She continues to rely on ACT as a psychotherapist and coach.
During her time as a graduate student she met her future husband, Kirk. As their relationship progressed and they were married in 2010, she was introduced to his family and the family business. As they say in family business, when you marry into the family, you marry the family. She became part of a family system that offered new opportunities and responsibilities. She saw that she could offer a unique perspective to others going through similar transitions.
Lindsay and Kirk have been blessed with two young children. After taking a few years to focus on being a mom and serve on a local non-profit board, Lindsay launched a private psychology practice and a coaching business for individuals and couples with wealth. She is honored to be able to support and guide others who experience the joys and challenges of living with wealth.
