About The Bridge to Hope and Healing®
The Bridge inspires individuals, families, and communities to build their bridge to hope and healing in a moment of crisis. Whether dealing with a health issue, struggling with addiction, the loss of a job, the suicide of a loved one, a natural disaster, or the death of a family member, the Bridge is a guide to assist you through your life circumstance and beyond. From the moment a crisis hits and you get thrown into a fog—often feeling alone, confused, and don’t know which way to turn—all the way through your healing journey, The Bridge gives you a sense of hope, nine principles, and healing techniques to help you cross over the troubled waters to reach the other side.
Becky Schwartz Corbett, MSW, ACSW, is a national speaker, trainer, and executive coach in intentional growth and leadership development. She is fiercely dedicated to inspiring others to lead their efforts to help individuals and communities thrive during moments of crisis. When Becky found herself in a critical, life-changing moment, she utilized her social work background, spirituality, and relationships with friends and family to not just survive, but thrive with passion and compassion. Applying the principles she modeled from her Nana Frances Wallach Weissberger Schwartz [may her memory forever be a blessing], she turned a family crisis into a journey of friendship, love, respect, and acceptance.

I believe the choices we make and the actions we take in a moment of family crisis clearly define who we are as individuals and help us identify what we want to teach and model for our children and loved ones.
