When it hurts to love so much...


You'd like to have an emotionally available partner, who passionately loves and respects you. Bonus points if your partner is a good listener, unthreatened by your needs, and knows how to express themselves honestly and openly in return!


To experience emotional availability in your relationship, you need to understand how to communicate your own needs from an emotionally authentic place, without triggering your partners emotional defenses.

And typically, that means understanding both of your unique "love maps"-your way of giving and receiving love.

If you are an anxious, Open Heart, that means understanding which of the two types of anxious attachment you have, how to recognize and honor your emotional boundaries in love, and how to apply what strengths you have, in a way that serves you, rather than depletes you and gives your power away.

But you're not a therapist, and you are probably sick of playing that role in your relationships anyway.

You don't know how to express yourself without triggering your partner into throwing up their emotional walls and "needing to take some space," give you the silent treatment, or explode and accuse you of trying to "make it all about you."

As a result, you fall into a painful, push-pull pattern in relationships that leaves you with emotional whiplash.


✔ Struggle to say or accept the word "no," without fearing total rejection or abandonment...

✔ Have difficulty discerning your feelings and preferences from someone else's...

✔ Find it hard to make decisions on your own, and fall into an endless spiral of "what ifs"...

✔ Slip into people pleasing but then feel resentful about it...

✔ Take on more than the Lion's Share of the responsibility, guilt, and blame in any relationship, because you think if you are responsible for something going wrong, it must be within your power to fix it.

✔ Deep down, you believe you have to earn love and approval, and so, you are drawn to partners that are “challenging” or “edgy,” that make you work for it.

✔ On the other hand, if a partner gives you love and affection too freely, you find them “boring,” or “too nice.”

✔ By being over-helpful, you make yourself indispensable to a partner. You think, “If they need me, they won’t leave me.” But this generosity is a double edged sword. Since you have worked so hard to make your partner need you, you always question whether or not they really love you for you…(and you probably struggle with knowing who the “real” you is, too).

✔ You tend to get lost in the potential of the relationship, rather than the reality of it.

✔ You may also struggle with other forms of addiction, such as drug abuse, alcohol abuse, food addictions, shopping addictions, hoarding, gaming addictions, and so on.

✔ But the hardest thing for the Open Heart, is that they usually attract other partners with insecure attachment styles, and so they fall into what is called "the anxious-avoidant trap"--which is when you find yourself repeatedly attracting emotionally unavailable partners that you just can't seem to get over.


1. Read every self-help book under the sun, and spend hours (if not years) talking around in circles in counseling or therapy, spending beaucoup bucks and wondering how you'll know when its working...

2. Manage to accomplish a lot of insight, but still attracting the same kind of partners over and over again, failing to see a real change in your FELT experiences...

3. Accept that this is as good as things are going to get, or...

4. Try something radically different, and think outside the box.

If you're leaning towards #4, my self-directed online course, Anxious Attachment 101: 5 Days to Take the Open Heart From Clingy to Confident, is just the ticket for you!

Check out Daina's testimonial for her experience of my online course, Anxious Attachment 101!

Daina found me on YouTube, after experiencing an on-again off-again relationship--which I call "the anxious-avoidant trap."

Daina gained insight into what the issues had been in her family background that were affecting her current relationships, as well as gained clarity around how to engage with her own children.

Daina also felt she had made tremendous progress in only 4 months since she began working with my program, as compared to the previous 2.5 years she had spent in counseling.

"My favorite part of this course would be the 4 emotional boundaries lesson, and the lesson on the Open Heart's strengths. It clarified so much for me about how I am sabotaging my relationships, and also showed me how I can start taking action right away. Plus, the monthly live stream Q&A on Facebook is great. Worth every penny."

“I am astounded by Briana’s video series on attachment. This comes from someone (albeit a layman) who has read voraciously on the subject for 7 years, now. There is insight and detailed explanations that simply can’t be found anywhere except in her videos…She should have a cable show. The level of clarity provided is beyond anything I’ve seen.”

✔ Students reported increased clarity around their own needs and desires, and that their partners were much more receptive to how they expressed them.

✔ Students reported conversations that would have normally triggered an endless battle, or lead to the silent treatment, sparked a heart-warming connection instead.

✔ Students felt as though they'd gained clarity around what makes each partner tick, and experience an increase sense of respect, admiration, and personal agency in the relationship.

✔ Students also experienced increased clarity around what they felt was their "intuition" versus a "triggered" emotional response, which helped them make better discerning decisions about compatible vs incompatible partners.

Experience has taught me that its not complicated to learn how to emotionally connect in an authentic way, when you have a deep understanding of your attachment style. But, it can be difficult without the right tools, and if you have no pre-existing models for how to function in a secure manner.

That's why I created this self-directed, online course, Anxious Attachment 101: 5 Days to Take The Open Heart From Clingy to Confident!

Because it works.

"Your course and activities empowered me to live without anxiety holding me back in relationships; I now have a better understanding of myself that's already improved my quality of life and enabled me to get back out there after a recent divorce. I just finished the Anxious Attachment 101 course two days ago, and I already found myself flirting with the cute girl in my building while feeling confident and hopeful as opposed to anxious and worried. The MacWilliam Method works, and I recommend it to anyone with anxiety."

Hi, my name is Briana, and I like burritos. Actually, burritos + a good movie = heaven, in my book. I also love romance novels and campy science fiction shows (anyone else a die-hard Supernatural fan?). I also love being my own boss. Doing what I want to do, when I want to do it. And treating work like play.

My passion for working with attachment wounds and personal development stems from a rocky childhood. As a child of divorce, I bounced back and forth between my parents, across state lines.We lived below the poverty line for much of my young life. In my parents, I had an example of hard work but constant struggle.

I became a high achiever to compensate. It served me well professionally, until my struggles with relationships in adulthood tore down everything I had accomplished.

In adulthood, I experienced roller coaster relationships, and ultimately wound up a divorced, single mom. Then, after losing my job due to budget cuts, within a six-month time frame, one after another, both my parents and my brother were diagnosed with serious, chronic illnesses. And the new partner I had fallen madly in love with– the one all the raw parts of myself wanted so desperately to please and keep – couldn’t prioritize me. When he left, my heart broke anew, and I miscarried, without realizing I had been pregnant. I felt my soul was split wide open.

As I came face-to-face with my greatest fears, I knew I had to find the grace on the other side, or collapse into a victimized identity. I decided to dive straight down into my demons, and wrote a book about attachment and grief. Ultimately, I found several other contributors willing to share their stories of grief, and we got it published!

Writing the book emboldened me to shed my shame, and talk about these things in a way I had never thought I would feel safe doing. This led to creating the curriculum for my online courses in personal development, and building an online community for support. Much to my delight, both caught fire, and I have never looked back!

My biggest struggle has been discerning my own intuition from a knee-jerk response to triggering statements and behaviors from emotionally unavailable partners. I found myself questioning if my feelings were even real, or if I was going crazy. The guided meditations and arts-based activities really got me back into my body and grounded me in a way that nothing else has, not even years of therapy and self help. Now, I feel a lot more in touch with my intuition and can tell when my gut is giving me an "it's okay" signal, or a "run as fast as you can" signal! I highly recommend this course.

If you had to pay $200 per hour, 1x per week for a talk therapist, you could expect to spend $2,400 in three months worth of treatment.

For a fraction of what you would spend on 1 hr in counseling or therapy (of which you'd spend most of the time going over the intake forms), this course delivers tangible results, in only 5 lessons worth of fun and easy experiential instruction.


All the things and the feels are possible for you.

More than that, its even probable, once you you decide and commit to living nothing less than a next-level life, and committing to the processes that will set you on that path.

The good news is, the tools you might need are relatively simple.

And the MOST crucial information that you will need on this journey, already exists INSIDE YOU.

However, learning how to access those parts of yourself can sometimes be a difficult task, when you've been taught your whole life to do the exact opposite.

But that's just conditioning.

And it can be undone.

Just as the brain is blessed with plasticity.

And it can be rewired.

Negative energy and defensive patterning that keep you stuck in a confusion cycle around her personal boundaries CAN be transformed and healed, so that you can RELAX into the brightest luminescence that is your spirit.

It is a process which will allow you to step into a state of being on FIYAH about life, and share that brilliance with a stars-in-their-eyes lover.

If taking a chance on pivoting in that direction isn't worth the cost of this course, I don't know what is!

You can continue to do the same thing you've been doing—feeling bulldozed in your relationship, while at the same time walking on eggshells and never feeling like you're needs are being met, increasingly anxious and depressed because of it...

Or you can take a step in the direction of improving your love life, by signing up for Anxious Attachment 101.

And there is no risk involved with a 14-day money-back guarantee!
