The vision behind myhappyavatar.com sprung over two decades ago. Dr. Liana Lianov was directing the women’s cancer program at the California Department of Health Services. Women often reached out to ask how they might cope with a cancer diagnosis or simply manage their lives in order to follow through with the prevention advice. Lots of information was being provided to the women, yet they felt like they were treading quicksand. Dr. Lianov took a leave in order to complete a psychiatry fellowship focused on patients with medical conditions. She learned treatments, such as cognitive behavioral therapy which can be effective for depression and other conditions. But it was not enough. Patients needed more than treatment. They needed to find joy in their lives. In her search for a better solution, she discovered the field of positive psychology. It was later shown that positive psychology works in a different part of the brain than mental illness treatment. All of us can benefit from improved emotional and physical wellbeing.

Dr. Lianov has led the development of tools that offer practical ways to use these positive psychology principles in everyday life. The apps apply the best of positive psychology and strengths-focused interventions, guided by neuroscience approaches, for easy use and effective results. We aim to support individuals, coaches, providers, and a variety of wellness partners more effectively and weave positive psychology into their lives, their work and their programs. Welcome to our growing family of myhappyavatar.com fans who find these tools invaluable.
