“I went to my first SpeakUP session last night and I am so glad I did. Jessica Tartaro, your presence exuded healing. The evening felt like a perfect blend of gravity and levity, nurture and challenge. I kept thinking how the experience of two whole hours of meaningful human interaction is something almost no one engages in anymore. I happened to arrive to the session feeling on the brink of a panic attack after a very challenging week. So, it took a while for me to settle in, but as soon as I got deep into the process of what it means to speak honestly, especially in front of people I didn’t know, my focus drew away from what was bothering me and into the present moment–which was a lot calmer. Thank you so much. The work you do is so important and I’m sure everyone who gets the opportunity to work with you is a better person for it, I know I am!” ~Bonnie Obremski, Founder, Storyborne
