Renewal

It’s the closing of another year. I am generally not someone who creates a New Year’s resolution list. Rather, I find myself reflecting at this time of year. What has happened in the past 12 months? How have I been changed, informed, affected by my life and the people in it, the world around me?…

Creativity: Language of the Soul

How does your soul speak to you? We are all born with a gift. The trick is realizing what that gift is and manifesting it during our lifetime. It’s easy to believe that creativity belongs to the world of artists. I have had countless people tell me that they are not creative and then guided…

Life is not a spectator sport

Letting go: Part 2 Let’s talk about being in the flow. Life has a way of challenging us to stay present. When there is struggle, pain, loss and fear, it can be tempting to check out. Go numb. We can start to believe that what is happening to us is the way our lives will…

Self-care: The Ritual of Letting Go

Part 1 “Letting go is not a one time event, it is a habit that requires consistent repetition to become strong.” Yung Pueblo We don’t always realize where we are until we decide to step away. That’s exactly what happened to me last week as I pondered my fatigue and my inability to enjoy pretty…

I don’t care what you think of me.

Admit it, we’ve all been there. Seeking approval. People-pleasing. Shrinking. Replaying a conversation over and over wishing for a different outcome. It’s not unusual to have regrets about something we’ve said, how we’ve acted, our silence. So much of how we react is rooted in our early training and modeling, the culture in which we…

Where do you live?

We all inhabit a space inside of ourselves. I invite you to take some time to discover and explore that space and what it says about how you approach your life and the world around you. We are easily stuck in our beliefs, thinking our way of doing things is all we need to know…

Mental Health Awareness Part 2 Comfort vs. Discomfort

In my last post, I emphasized the three pillars of mental health: nutrition, sleep and movement. Most of us know that even if we discover the perfect formula for these pillars, there is no guarantee that we’re going to feel great. And there will always be a disruption to the routine. The pillars are about…

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Part 1 I realized halfway through the month that May is mental health awareness month. Funny, I’ve been thinking a lot about mental health lately, specifically, my own. And yes, as a therapist, besides engaging in the well-being of others, I spend a lot of my free time contemplating, reading about and listening to podcasts…

Welcome to the club that no one wants to belong to.

I was talking to my oldest friend from high school last week. Just having a friend from high school is a small miracle to me. To be able to maintain and nurture connection over half a lifetime is a beautiful and remarkable journey. Ramona is that friend, the one that I may not speak to…

“I have nothing to look forward to…”

A Tribute to my dad “I have nothing to look forward to.” I heard this three times in one day last week. People struggling to look ahead with any kind of hope or enthusiasm. An uncertainty that things–life–were ever going to get better. So I knew it was time to talk about this ubiquitous feeling…
