What if you knew just the right thing to say to inspire a partner's devotion?

There’s an easier way.


This is a 90-day, live, group coaching program including an attachment and trauma-informed, somatic approach to fearlessly expressing your needs and navigating conflicts fairly, so you can deepen the intimacy, whether partnered or single.

If emotional intimacy is your destination, attachment styles is the vehicle that’s going to get you there, but not without any gas…that’s where my trademarked method, and “HIP” communication formula, come in. 

Communication is more than the words that we speak, it is the ENERGY that we FEEL and EXPRESS in relationships. Learning the right words without understanding how to process the emotional energy behind them, is going to keep you stuck in cyclical negative patterns in love. Until now!

“I used to feel so suffocated in my relationships, like I had to be glued to my partner’s side at all times or I would lose him. Now I realize that I don’t have to sacrifice my own needs and wants in order to keep a man in my life. Actually, the opposite is true. The more space I give him, and the more I focus on myself, the stronger our connection becomes.” 

Danica, 29

“Briana MacWilliam is the kind of teacher who gets down to the bone where the blood is hot and running. She will never point to a thing when she can show it to you… She has a combination of grace and grit that make her a fantastic teacher and a fabulous clinician.” 

Alan Pottinger, 44

“The course work helped me tap into my emotions, rather than just my intellectualism, which I struggle with. It also wound up helping me in other areas of my life too…I just started noticing things about myself that I hadn’t known before. After years of therapy, in only 6 months it has helped tremendously.” 

Lenka, 35

What would be like to fearlessly voice your needs, and have a partner pull you close and say, "Thank you for telling me how to support you."

Not to mention, INSPIRING LOVE in a partner, rather than demanding, begging, or attempting to earn it from them, which allows you to experience DEVOTION beyond the fear of settling, rather than a suffocating or half-hearted COMMITMENT, . 

Sounds good, right?

There's Only

To experience emotional devotion in relationships, whether its one date, one month, or 10 years, you need to understand how to communicate your own needs from an emotionally authentic place, without coming across as blaming, critical, demanding, or triggering your partner's emotional defenses.

And typically, that means understanding both of your unique attachment styles, or  “love maps”-your unique way of giving and receiving love. When we DON’T understand each other’s attachment styles, it can lead to confusion, pain, and mixed signals in relationships. 

The struggle might look like...

But fear not—there is hope!

You ARE enough.
You are NOT too much.
You are FULLY deserving.

And there is a reality that exists in which you get to BE your most authentic self, and live your FULLEST life, with a partner who cherishes you, just as you are. I know, because I’ve walked through that fire myself, and found grace on the other side.

My online coaching program, The Courageous Communicator, is going to hold your hand every step of the way, so you get to embrace that reality, for good. 

And believe me, it’s SO worth it!

What Students Have To Say About This Program...

Why You Should Listen to Me...

As a licensed and board-certified creative arts therapist (with certifications in Reiki Healing, EFT Tapping, and trauma-informed somatic therapy), I've spent more than 15 years working with thousands of adults struggling with insecure attachment styles.

Experience has taught me it’s not complicated to learn how to attract stable and emotionally available partners when you have a deep understanding of how attachment styles and energy healing works.

Attachment styles and healing attachment wounds is a topic so near and dear to my heart, because I don’t just teach this stuff, I’ve lived it.As a child of divorce, my parents were always on the move, and we lived on the edge of poverty most of the time. I became a high achiever to compensate until my relationship struggles tore down everything I’d accomplished, and I wound up a divorced, single mom. 

Then, both my parents and my brother were diagnosed with serious, chronic illnesses. And the new partner I had fallen madly in love with couldn’t prioritize me or stay faithful. When he left, my heart broke anew, and I miscarried what would’ve been my second child. 

I decided to dive straight down into my demons, and write a book about attachment and grief. Writing the book emboldened me to shed my shame, and learned how to move from an insecure to a secure attachment style! This led to creating the curriculum for my online courses, such as The Courageous Communicator, and building an online community for support. Much to my delight, both caught fire, and I’ve never looked back!

Healing Your Conflict Blueprint

In step 1, students are usually LED BY FEAR, ANGER, AND/OR HELPLESSNESS. If they are single they may be heartbroken from previous relationships, and desperate not to fail again. If they are partnered, they may be at their wits end, and sick of having the same arguments in different iterations, over and over again.  

There is usually  A NEED FOR CLARITY, and answers as to why their efforts at improving their communication skills haven’t led to improved results in the dating scene, or in a relationship. They STRUGGLE WITH FINGER-POINTING,  and recognizing their role in the dynamic. 

THE GROWTH CHALLENGE is to become aware of how your attachment styles are affecting the way you communicate in a relationship, understanding that reparative communications in love, are a way of developing resilience, usually after profound challenges and attachment wounding (yours or your partners).  

The lessons covered in this stage tackle the biggest questions you may have at this point:

End Mixed Signals & Avoid Triggers: What To Say Instead

Have you ever struggled with…


Angry, hurt, and frustrated, Kelly had hit a wall. She had been trying to figure out why her relationships always failed, and she felt like she was going crazy. She had tried everything- read books, taken courses, talked to friends, but nothing seemed to work. She was so tired of feeling like she was “broken” because of her attachment style; who could love her if she was so anxious all the time? Then she found The Courageous Communicator course. It was the first time she had ever heard someone talk about communication relevant to insecure attachment styles, and things clicked for her. Within 6 months of taking this course, she was in a serious relationship with a new partner.

“The Courageous Communicator course helped me to see how my past relationships were affecting the way I communicated now. I learned how to take responsibility for my own actions, and how to start communicating in a way that would help me to achieve the kind of relationship I wanted.”

Kelly, 29

Inspire Devotion

In step 2, students are LED BY HUMILITY AND CURIOSITY. If they are in a relationship, they have surrendered their defenses and are willing to open up to listening to their partners without judgment, criticism, or taking personal offense. If they are single, they are ready to let go of a need for outcomes, and allow the dating process to be a fun experiment and exploratory adventure.  

In the wake of this ‘surrender’, comes an intensified STRUGGLE WITH UNDERSTANDING YOUR NEEDS, and knowing what they have a “right” to feel and want from the relationship. They WANT AND NEED TO LET GO OF A FEAR OF UNWORTHINESS or feeling “not good enough” while at the same time, “too much.” 

THE GROWTH CHALLENGE requires sitting with uncomfortable feelings long enough to honestly identify and express your needs. This includes UNLEARNING old toxic habits of communication and dis-identifying with them as an aspect of your personality. Then comes the task of BUILDING NEW COMMUNICATION SKILLS that foster compassion and reciprocity in love.
