LOVE, IT TURNS OUT, IS HANDS DOWN THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE BEHIND A HAPPY, PURPOSE DRIVEN, HEART-FILLED-TO-OVERFLOW LIFE.

Love is the frequency of happiness. And yet, it’s one of the most misunderstood concepts of all time. We’ve tried to label love and tie it down and own it.  But love defies ownership, categorization and labels. Love wants to be free to pop up in a flower, on an afternoon breeze, in the gaze… 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…

TENDING TO THE TENDER HEART… MAYBE “TOUGHEN UP” ISN’T THE ANSWER.

Tending to the tender heart… maybe “toughen up” isn’t the answer. Some of us are incredibly sensitive. It’s how we came. No amount of “toughen up”, “you’re sooooo sensitive”, “you need a thicker skin” is going to change who we fundamentally are—beautiful, exquisitely sensitive souls. And while it’s your genius—yes, it really is—it can feel… Continue reading…

What does Elizabeth Gilbert’s announcement have to do with you? Actually, maybe more than you think.

Elizabeth Gilbert did what Elizabeth Gilbert does best—she transparently stepped into the limelight yet again and stood authentically in her truth. She’s in love with her best friend and her best friend, Rayya, is in love with her. I don’t know Elizabeth Gilbert and so I don’t know her back story. What I know is… Continue reading…

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 on earth does the entelechy of a Giant Sequoia have to do with the entelechy of YOU? And what’s an entelechy anyway?

A 2000 year old tree. I stood at its foot, looked up and gawked. Literally. 2,000 years old, 300 feet tall and 2 million pounds. Not too shabby. Giant Sequoias—whole groves of them. They grow the equivalent of a full 60ft tree every year. Some of them have bark that’s 30 feet thick. And that’s… Continue reading…

How to get a handle on runaway thinking for when your brain’s on overdrive before you even get out of bed in the morning.

The alarm hasn’t even gone off yet and already here it goes—your brain that is. It’s already in overdrive and it’s not even 6! Analyzing… criticizing… evaluating… commenting… debating… OMG, stop already! Or don’t you love those times when you’re just completely exhausted; you’ve waited all day long to crawl into bed, you’ve been savoring… Continue reading…

Have you forgotten what it feels like to hop out of bed on a Saturday morning raring to go on some creative project you’ve got spread out all over the garage?

We all grow up with so many plans and schemes–ideas that delight us down to the tips of our toes. So many dreams. Seriously! Ask any group of 7 year olds and you’ll get an ear full–hopes and dreams for what’s right around the corner, hopes and dreams about what’s going to show up at… 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.
