"Rodrigo has shown me how to look at happiness in a way that has taken the control of it out of others' hands and back into mine.  

His optimistic, eager and intuitive approach to empowerment is so effective!  I've experienced less conflict in my personal relationships and I am finding more happiness!  It does require effort to change habits, but Rodrigo's experience and skill at breaking them down into smaller, more accessible pieces does make it easier.  

I am very happy and grateful to be part of Rodrigo's mission to make Portlanders happier!"
