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…

IT’S SUCH A HARD THING TO DO BUT OH, THE INCREDIBLE THINGS THAT START TO HAPPEN WHEN YOU DO—LIKE SOME OF YOUR DREAMS ACTUALLY BECOMING REALITIES.

You plant a seed. You water it. You tend to it. Or maybe you forget all about it. But the one thing I’m pretty sure you don’t do, is rush out the next morning and dig it up to see if it’s growing. Is it growing? Is it growing now? (To be said with the… 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…

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….

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…

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.
