Eckstra Credit is a tongue-in-cheek way of denoting that courageous step we take into our present experience, where, in an uncomfortable situation, we take a breath in and sense into our body, becoming aware of our reactions instead of finding comfort in a distraction.  

Eckstra Credit is a boutique firm that helps start-ups with one thing: the balance, wellbeing, and personal growth of their employees.  Using the Enneagram- a system unparalleled in the field of personal development- we outline a path of integration between body and mind, a more articulate way of expressing, clearer thinking, and a more sophisticated way of understanding oneself and one's colleagues.  

EC employs science, psychology, and history’s best philosophical models and paradigms to improve your employees' personal lives as well as your business.
