About the Book

“My team and I have featured Dr. Luana Marques prominently both on our podcast and our app. Each time, the audience has loved it. Luana knows anxiety from the inside and can smoothly and compassionately guide you out of it. I’m quite confident this book will engage readers and help them.”—Dan Harris, bestselling author of 10% Happier


Turn your anxiety into strength with Harvard-based psychotherapist Dr. Luana Marques’ 3-step method to living boldly—her clinically-proven approach that inspires patients from CEOs to at-risk teens and echoes lessons learned growing up in poverty in Brazil.

Bold Move is Harvard-based psychotherapist Dr. Luana Marques’ unique, tried and tested method to get you out of your rut and find the courage to create a more confident and meaningful life. Dr. Luana pinpoints the anxiety at the root of avoidance and shows how you can overcome it and achieve your goals.

Dr. Luana understands anxiety. After decades of research, teaching, and clinical practice, she realized that the coping techniques she learned from her mother and grandmother while growing up in poverty in Brazil mimicked science-based CBT therapy. Now, she has synthesized that knowledge, developing a 3-step path that works for everyone—from teens in crisis to executives experiencing burnout.

Bold Move includes concrete examples and exercises backed by the most recent clinical and scientific research. Dr. Luana’s 3-step plan:

  • Helps you recognize thinking patterns that leave you feeling tense, anxious, and worried
  • Outlines the many forms that avoidance can take, including seeking comfort from others
  • Explains the importance of being your own “thought lawyer”
  •  Shows you why “just do it” doesn’t get it done.
  • Strategizes how you can build on your values to establish boundaries and make room for your dreams.

A blend of Unwinding Anxiety, Don’t Believe Everything You Think, and Do Hard Things, Bold Move is a groundbreaking, transformative program that works for everyone—for practitioners, and most notably, those dealing with mental health challenges from underserved communities who have been overlooked and neglected for too long.
