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…

CORONAVIRUS—IF YOU NEEDED AN EXCUSE, HERE IT IS. STOP, DROP, AND…

Coronavirus is real. It’s scary. It’s causing a lot of chaos and panic around the world and some real heartache to the families and friends of those who are watching loved ones get sick and in some cases, die.  I’m not writing about the physical realities of the coronavirus or the precautionary steps we should… 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…

WHAT IF THAT VERY THING YOU’VE BEEN TOLD YOUR WHOLE LIFE IS WRONG WITH YOU…. IS ACTUALLY THE VERY THING, THAT WHEN YOU EMBRACE IT AND OWN IT AND LIVE FROM IT, OPENS THE FLOODGATES TO A LEVEL OF HAPPINESS THAT FEELS POSITIVELY MAGICAL.

I spent the first 20+ years of my life knowing to the core of my being that there was something fundamentally wrong with me. I knew that if people really knew me, they most certainly would/could never really love me. And chances are, if you’re a sensitive, heart-full, emotional “fairy dust and pixie” kind of… 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…

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…

When was the last time?… Read to the end because I have a gift for you.

Every day starts off with the best of intentions. Well, maybe not every day, but hopefully a good number of them. We’re no dummies—we’ve read the articles, we know the science. A calm and centered mind thrives. It creates the most incredible lives. But before we even get out the front door the laptop is… 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.
