At Team Happy, the mission is simple: to help you live life with more joy and less stress.
Hi! I’m Linda Esposito, LCSW (licensed clinical social worker, and not the cute gal pictured above 😉 ) and I created this program to share the tools I’ve been using in the therapy room for over a decade.
Team Happy includes more than one dozen modules, featuring experts in mental health and psychology. Here’s a sampling of some of the most popular courses:
Dealing with Difficult Family Events—with author Tracey Cleantis
Simple, Peaceful Living—with Brooke McAlary, The Slow Home Podcast
Your Money or Your Mental Health—with Fizzle founder, Corbett Barr
3 Steps to Healthy, Thriving Relationships—Alison Crosthwait, Couples Counselor
What exactly is Team Happy?

- practice tips + strategies to improve emotional well-being to put what you learn into action
AWAKE AT 3 A.M. THINKING, ‘IS THIS ALL THERE IS IN LIFE?’
You’re not alone. Sleep problems are at all-time highs, and the effects to physical and mental health are staggering. Learn how to cope with anxious thoughts by practicing alternative ways of viewing your situation. Negative or distorted thoughts are the thieves in the night of mental wellness, not to mention your unwelcome bedfellows. There’s lots of exercises and tips to make sleep a priority. Because if you’re not sleeping, you’re not happy. Period.
FEEL LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IS HAVING FUN BUT YOU?
In the age of 24-7 online access, it’s easy to look at other people’s status updates and believe they have it all. Except that they don’t. What you’re viewing is ‘edited reality,’ and not what happened right before that shiny, hipster-filtered and expertly cropped Instagram image was shared: the tantruming kids, the teen telling dad to F*ck off, or the dinner-for-one reservation with a tub of Trader Joe’s Belgian Chocolate Pudding. You will learn that the only way to have fun and achieve happiness is by meeting your truth. Up close, personal, honest. There’s no Photoshopping in this joint.
I’m not as stressed! Team Happy gives me the tools I need to keep a lid on my work and home duties. I’ve learned to reframe my negative thoughts, focus on what I want out of each interaction with others, and feel gratitude for the small stuff! —Beth Anne
TIRED AT THE END OF THE DAY, EVEN WHEN YOU DIDN’T DO MUCH?
Being unhappy, non-productive, bored and stuck sucks the life out of you.
If you see yourself above, it’s likely time to do things differently. If you’re looking to increase happiness + positive relationships with others, Team Happy can help.
Talking to Linda reminds me of conversations I had with my favorite Aunt growing up. There’s the reassurance that you’re not the only one going through this, and the gentle urging to ask yourself ‘why’ when you continuously bark up the same tree. —Randy
Gun shy? No problem. Read on for more details…
The number of prescriptions written yearly in America for the anti-anxiety med Xanax. Because that’s not depressing.
The word I hold back in the therapy room when clients say, “I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever been happy. I mean, maybe I’m just wired this way.”
The feeling that your past owns you, which is why you unconsciously choose the same reactions, relationships and moods when stressed.
The number of choices you have when your relationships suffer:
1. Maintain the status quo (AKA, do nothing to change your situation).
2. Try and change someone else.
3. Work on changing yourself.
The hardest thing in the world to change without a:
The one factor, hands down, separating those clients who move off the couch, and those who remain unhappy. Btw, positive attitude doesn’t mean smiling in the face of tragedy, because, let’s face it — life can be a total bitch — but it’s finding the lessons in the chaos.
What keeps you mired in the past — depressed, or fearful of the future — anxious.
Not the 9-5 version, but the toil willing you to plug away even when you don’t feel like it.
Different from what LeBron bounces, but no less badass. Think: Balls-to-the-wall, and Intrepid.
The vital component of knowing you’re not alone in your struggles.
The sister to positive attitude when it comes to easing up on the self-loathing, and laughing at your mistakes instead.
…that will never appear here include “Happiness is like peeing your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you feel its warmth,” or “In the darkest of times you can turn on your light.”

The feeling I get whenever someone makes the brave step toward changing their emotional well-being!
Having access to the Team Happy library whenever I want to feel calmer or I need to refocus my thoughts is huge for me. I’m a full-time grad student, part-time barista and 24-7 wife and mom. Listening to the audios while driving, or walking around campus provides the center and balance I don’t always give myself. —Jazzaleen
