  • Stress Is Gone

    “I released stress that was with me for 25+ years. I was able to speak my truth, forgive my parents, and truly grieve the loss of a loved one. As emotional tension released, I felt lighter, my depression disappeared, and all emotional eating, anxiety, and fatigue diminished. I still use his simple yet powerful techniques in my life to maintain this stress-free state.”


  • Stress Is Gone

    “I can attest to every word in Marcy E. Kessler’s testimonial because I experienced the same thing. I was in a dark abyss of depression. While attending an online veterans support group, Brett was the guest speaker and singled me out. I was angry, depressed, and suicidal, and yet I followed his lead. I have learned to be at peace within myself. I owe my life to Brett, and Stress Is Gone. Thank you, Brother!”

    Army Veteran, Peer Support Specialist, Montana
