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…

ARE YOU FADING OUT OF YOUR OWN LIFE? HERE ARE MY FAVORITE 3 WAYS TO TURN YOURSELF BACK ON TO A LIFE THAT FEELS ALIVE AGAIN.

Are you watering yourself down? Holding yourself back? Becoming less and less of who you really are? It’s funny, you’d think being yourself would be the easiest thing in the world. 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…

NAVIGATING HIGHLY CHARGED EMOTIONAL WATERS—NOT THE EASIEST THING FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE SUPER SENSITIVE. HERE IS A MUST HAVE FOR THOSE HIGH WAVES.

We’re living in some super charged emotional times and navigating that kind of energy every day from family and friends and colleagues and the evening news and the pings and the tweets…. well, let’s just say, it can feel absolutely, totally and completely overwhelming. And then, just for good measure, throw into that frothing mix…… 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…

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…

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.
