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…

RELAXATION, IT TURNS OUT IS WAY MORE THAN JUST A LUXURY. IT’S ACTUALLY A BASIC NEED ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE SERIOUS ABOUT YOUR HAPPINESS.

So, if I told you that you needed to take some time to relax, you’d probably just look at me with a sarcastic smirk on your face and say something like, “Sure, I’ll get right on that. I don’t have anything else to do right at the moment.” (And you might even bob your head… Continue reading…

Turns out it’s one of the hardest! It takes some serious work to be real, heart centered and fully alive. But oh my, how… Continue reading…

YOU’RE SENTENCED TO 27,432 OF THEM A DAY. WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOURS?

Some say 20,000; some say 70,000; some say something in between so 27,432 is actually a conservative estimate. Let’s face it, whichever it is, it’s a big number; it’s a really really big number. You and I have somewhere in the vicinity of 20,000 to 70,000 thoughts a day. And guess what? Most of those… 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…

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…

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.
