Meet Aviva

Catalyzing Emotional Well-being/Resilience Within in the Community


Aviva Barnett is a Three Principles Innate Health educational consultant, and Transformational Seminar Leader. For over a decade, Aviva has been teaching and facilitating The Principles through workshops, seminars, community events, and private consulting sessions. Her presentations are clear, relatable, and catered to you and your community.


Aviva Barnett, MSW, founded MWmindworks: Health from the Inside Out in 2014. With a Masters in Social Work from Wurzweiller, Aviva became trained as a life coach through MentorCoach, after which her exposure to the Principles of Innate Health in 2006, led her to become a Principles facilitator.

Prior to that, Aviva was the Director of the Jewish Family Institute in Livingston, NJ, where she and her husband ran a branch of Aish HaTorah. She co-founded the Yashar Foundation in 2009, and founded MWmindworks: Health from the Inside Out in 2014.

**Aviva has always been community oriented, striving to bridge the gap between individual and group. She focused her work on bringing individuals closer with themselves, their community, and their children.


As a mother of four boys Aviva certainly had her hands full over the years. Prior to learning the Principles, she was overwhelmed, unhappy and rarely present in her life, feeling stuck because of her “circumstances.”

Each day, waking up to a busy and judgmental mind, Aviva felt compelled by her thinking. The Principles helped her address previous struggles of body image issues/overeating, compulsively exercising, yelling at her kids, fear of making mistakes, caring what others thought of her and always feeling annoyed. These common human experiences started to look a lot different as she insightfully saw the role The Principles played in explaining where her feelings were really coming from.

Via the inside-out paradigm, Aviva experienced a transformation of her experience of life. She awakened to her own innate health and resilience, and now helps others do the same. Her willingness to be honest and share her own personal struggles has made her a relatable resource and influence in her communities. With a deep spiritual nature, Aviva makes the moment to moment experience of G-dliness real and tangible for people. She brings emunah to life while appreciating everyone’s humanity. It’s a refreshing combination.

Feeling grateful for the gift of freedom, presence and connection, she has a deep desire to awaken the resilience within you, your family or your community.


Working with Aviva is entirely different than any other attempts at "self-help" I have tried before. Her ability to clarify how thought works greatly empowers me and enables me to navigate life with an ease I never before thought possible!

I walked out thinking I don't really fully understand how this works, but for the glimmer of hope that I felt that I don't have to live the rest of my life this way, gives me a sense that I'm headed in the right direction and want to come back for more. It felt so liberating not to have to drudge up all the old "stuff."

I have experienced a profound shift in my ability to be present in day to day life through Aviva's teaching of how the mind works. Not only do I feel more focused when I am involved in something, I also enjoy it more. I carry much less worry/stress around with me on a daily basis and I sleep much better now that I understand the value of a quiet mind.

Whatever Aviva is sharing, she does so with clarity and in a refreshing way that allows for her humanity. My understanding of what makes me tick seems to naturally deepen whenever I listen to her teach.

Aviva changed my life! She is an excellent teacher and a tremendous listener. She has taught me how to have clearer thinking and how to listen to my true inner voice. I can't thank her enough for making me a better wife, mother & friend.

Learning about the 3 principles (innate health) with Aviva has brought about an incredible shift in my thinking and how I view life. I have found it to be the most simple, yet effective understanding that literally transforms your experience and way of living. I consider myself lucky to have come across the 3 principles!

Aviva's presentation of the principles is so clear, real and practical. She's able to address the "tough" questions with grace and honesty.

Aviva has an amazing natural ability to teach the principles with warmth and clarity, and I am filled with tremendous gratitude to her for helping me live a calmer life.

I am more present in day to day life, experience a quieter mind more of the time and I now truly believe that I have innate health and resilience no matter the circumstances.
Passaic, NJ
After struggling with severe anxiety and depression for many years I strongly believed there was no hope for my life to change. I lived with the belief that my past has left me broken and I needed fixing to enable me to move forward with my life. I've tried all types of therapy but nothing seemed to help...until I was introduced to the 3 principles. I began meeting with Aviva Barnett for private counseling sessions to learn and understand how my mind works. It's been a few short months and I am seeing an incredible shift in my thinking that I would never have thought possible.

​I am so grateful. Not only have you helped me find my mental health and really be able to recognize that I have the resilience and emotional well-being within me, but how do you put a price tag on helping me heal from the spiritual void I've lived with for so many years???
