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…

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….

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…

6 Clarity-Creating, Stress-Reducing, Let’s-Live-Life-to-the-Fullest Steps for Staying True to Yourself and On Course—The Case of the Missing Piece.

I love puzzles. I can get lost in those crazy little jigsaw pieces for hours. Over the years I’ve noticed something that leaves me scratching my head every time. Sometimes, in the blink of an eye, out of 1,000 pieces, I’ll see THE piece that fits right into the spot I’m working on. Bingo! Jack… 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…

What’s the dream? Why the heck does it matter? And more importantly, what should you do about it? (Part 1)

What’s the dream? What’s your dream? Seriously, I’m not kidding. In business. In play. In relationship. In family. What is it that you want more than anything else? When we were kids we knew the answer… Ask any kindergarten class and watch the hands fly up and the little bodies pop out of their seats.

Perennial happiness–happiness we can count on.

Looking for happiness in all the wrong places? Are you finding it, glimpsing it and then just as quickly losing it? There is no other place to grow happiness—to find it or manufacture it—than now. Now—that’s it. That is all we’ve got. The power of now, we hear about it, we read about it, we… 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.
