Read full description of the books:
When victory is our only goal, we miss out on life’s richest rewards. But what about triumphing over trauma? Isn’t that a worthy goal? The answer, of course, is yes. And yet too often we rush to put our difficulties behind us, thinking this allows us to get on with our lives and marks us as resilient. What if the best way forward is not to skip to the end but to struggle for as long as necessary?
Licensed marriage and family therapist Claire Nana, LMFT, is passionate about the remarkable concept of posttraumatic growth. Having endured the murder of her father and incarceration of her mother, she learned firsthand how battling adversity head-on forces you to look for joy in unexpected places and uncover strengths you weren’t aware you had. By paying attention to the journey, for better or worse, rather than focusing solely on the finish line, you open yourself to opportunities and discover personal depths you would’ve otherwise missed.
Cultivating happiness is a process. Reading Leverage will remind you that sometimes the long way produces the most lasting results—and that you can only reach tomorrow’s triumph by being present for today’s trouble.

Read information about the authorGraduating in 2002 from San Diego State University with a B. S. in Kinesiology, and then later from San Diego University for Integrative Studies in 2002 with a M.A. in Marriage and Child Family Counseling, I have many years experience working with clients with addictions, mood disorders and adjustment issues.
A specialty of mine has always been with the addiction recovery population. I have created programs for Miracle House Recovery Center, Tender Life Maternity Home, and Prototypes Women’s Center, designed to help trauma, abuse, eating disorder, and addiction recovery clients with mood disorders return to balanced and healthy functioning. As many of these clients also were challenged with returning to sober lives and relationships, I also specialize in relationship and adjustment issues that are specific to the recovery population, such as finding a new direction in their life, or perhaps have a dream or goal that they have always wanted to accomplish.
I have an additional speciality working with clients with body image issues, as I am a competitive athlete myself and have worked in the past as a wellness consultant and fitness specialist. I have also been a contributing writer on exercise and mood for Trail Runner and Her Sports magazines, as well as teaching continuing education courses for International Sport Science Association, the only continuing education program for personal trainers accredited by the Department of Education and Continuing Training, and am the creator of “The Client Centered Approach to Personal Training,” and “The Dynamics of Health and Weight Loss Coaching.” She has also worked as a biomechanics and wellness consultant creating programs for United States International University, Nokia Corporation, and Bally Total Fitness. Additionally, as a staff psychotherapist at Live In Fitness, the largest residential bootcamp in the United States, Claire has helped thousands of clients struggling with lifelong weight issues return to healthy weights, and healthy lives.
My own competitive accomplishments include national high school rankings in the 400 meter top three division finishes in several marathons, as well as two consecutive top division placings in the Lake Tahoe Triple Ultra-Marathon, and the Leadville Trail Marathon, the second highest (altitude) marathon in the United States. In 2013, I also won both the LOST 118, and the Ft. Clinch Ultra- Marathons.
I am also an avid equestrian, and my competitive highlights in this field include two reserve national championships and one national championship at the Arabian Nationals, several top placings in Mini Prix competitions, including Almaden Farms Summer Classic, Monterey Bay Seal of Approval, Michelob Classic, and a 2nd place finish in the Western division of the Young Jumper Championships, in 2005. In 2012, I was the Reserve Champion at Training Level at the Rocky Mountain Dressage Championships, and won the High Point Jockey Club Award.
