If I could, I would ask all parents, “Wouldn’t you like an easy way to talk to your kids about any situation or problem and help them take more responsibility for the way they act?” I did and I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to try PluckyWize. The maps taught my daughter and the rest of our family how to “hike the trail” to what PluckyWize calls Mastery Mountain. It worked for us. And, it’s a fun way to figure things out. Almost like a game.

I love your program and think all children can benefit from using PluckyWize! I have found PluckyWize to be wonderful at helping children understand and deal with their feelings. It allows them the freedom to know that it is ok to have feelings and that he/she is a great kid!

It made me realize how courageous I was to dive into the deep end at the pool and now I am a competitive swimmer.


Age 10

It helped me swim a 100 IM race for the first time even though I was scared. I think PluckyWize is awesome.


Age 7

The PluckyWize program helped me explain, set goals, and normalize the process of therapy for my child and teen clients. The engaging PluckyWize map is easy for my clients to understand and empowers clients to choose their own “path” towards wellness. PluckyWize is simple to use and easy to explain to children, teens, and their caregivers. The program is flexible and can be used to address a wide range of presenting symptoms and issues. I think PluckyWize would be beneficial to Therapists, Children, Teens, Parents, and Teachers.

PluckyWize teaches children (or anyone) the tools to navigate the challenges of life. The “path” encourages everyone to persevere and not give up. I like the ease, simplicity, and beauty of the concept and believe PluckyWize would resonate with anyone of all ages facing a dilemma.

PluckyWize, with its game-based format, provides a new method for talk therapy. PW gives therapists, educators, and parents a new way to help children talk about their feelings using a playful, kid-friendly language called Map Talk. PluckyWize can help children turn feelings into productive actions as they head for Mastery Mountain.

PluckyWize uses a fun and imaginative platform to help kids cope with stressors and achieve goals. I love the colorful maps and the strategies for coping and achieving goals and I think teachers, coaches, school counselors, psychologists and pediatric nurses would all benefit from using PluckyWize!
