WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU REALLY LOOKED IN THE MIRROR? I’VE GOT A CHALLENGE FOR YOU AND IT’S PROBABLY NOT WHAT YOU THINK.

It’s 7:15am. You’re rushing out the door. Coffee in hand. Your spare hand is grabbing a hard boiled egg. Quick glance in the mirror. Oh no, that shirt looks wrinkled. And… are you kidding me? Look at that hair. Ugh. I’m going to be late. I don’t have time for this. You know the drill…. Continue reading…

ONCE UPON A TIME IN A LAND FAR FAR AWAY… ARE YOU TURNING ON THE ENDORPHINS OR FLOODING YOURSELF WITH NEVER ENDING RIVERS OF CORTISOL?

What’s your spin on life today? Specifically, your life. It’s your call. Really, seriously it is. Attitude is everything. I know, you’ve heard that one a gazillion times if you’ve heard it once. In fact, it’s one of those things that’s said so often that at some point it just plain old stops meaning anything…. Continue reading…

OH HELL, SOMEONE JUST PASS ME THE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES AND A BOTTLE OF VODKA! GOLLUM’S BACK IN THE HOUSE.

I’ve got to have it. I need it. No, rewrite that. I neeeeeeeeed it. You know, that clingy gooey energy that slithers into your belly. It’ll go AWOL every now and then—sometimes even for a long time—and then bam! Here’s Johnny! It’s back again in all it’s splendor. Your very own personal resident Gollum. And… Continue reading…

HOLLYWOOD SPENDS MILLIONS ON IT—AND WITH GOOD REASON… HOW MUCH ARE YOUR INVESTING IN IT?

Titanic…. Lord of the Rings… Gone with the Wind… Sweeping, epic stories with sweeping epic music swelling, crashing and trickling in the background. That music cajoles us, leads us forward, amplifies our emotional response. It engages us; teases us; draws us in. All we have to do is hear the beginning notes of “scary” music… Continue reading…

WHAT DO YOUR ZUCCHINIS HAVE TO DO WITH YOUR HAPPINESS? TURNS OUT QUITE A LOT…

It’s planting season. It’s spring. Blossoms are popping all over the place. LOVE this time of year. Racks of seeds in the garden centers—green beans, zucchinis, tomatoes, basil, oregano, eggplants… So many possibilities waiting, dormant, in tiny seeds—sometimes minuscule seeds like basil. For our purposes, imagine packets of happiness, joy, serenity, peace, creativity, love… Oh… Continue reading…

ONE OF THE MOST POTENT HABITS FOR HAPPINESS IS GRATITUDE–IN A NUTSHELL, THANKSGIVING!

How it can be that we’re just a few days away from Thanksgiving is beyond me. I’m sure our gorgeous weather this Fall hasn’t helped in terms of tricking my mind into believing that it’s sooner than it really is—I think I may be stuck back in time somewhere around September 12th, give or take….

WHEN DID YOU START SETTLING, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY ARE YOU READY FOR MORE?

When did you start settling for less than you wanted? Do you remember? Settling… for most of us happens very very gradually. We can’t place it. We can’t mark the calendar with the exact day it all changed–March 17, 1994; note to self: I gave up on myself and started settling for less and less…. Continue reading…

Hi, it’s me… your 12 year old self. Remember me?

Dear Adult Self (fill in your name), Hi, it’s me… your 12 year old self. Remember me? I know you’re super busy and all but I’m the one who used to run til my lungs were on fire when we played tag down at the field. Remember me? I used to throw my whole heart… Continue reading…

What’s the dream? Why the heck does it matter? And more importantly, what should you do about it? (Part 2)

Hopefully since we last “talked” you’ve been doing a lot of fun thinking about “what’s the dream?” Hopefully you’re dreaming and sprouting ideas that tickle your fancy. Hopefully you’ve given yourself pure unadulterated permission to daydream. Hopefully your imagination is starting to sputter back to life. That delicious imagination of yours is the alchemical mix that sprouts… Continue reading…

I DO THINGS
A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY

I’m not “just” a therapist who focuses on the impact your past has on your present, or “just” a coach who focuses on your present and future.

My holistic approach weaves coaching, therapy and positive psychology (the science of happiness) together for maximum impact, so you can start feeling real happiness now, even as you’re clearing out the negative issues and traumas that hold you back.

Whether you need a sounding board or an impartial view, help breaking out of entrenched habits that aren’t serving you anymore, or even deep healing around childhood trauma or some other spiritual, psychological and/or emotional wounding, you’re in the right place.
