We are fully in the holiday season. This time of year can bring up pain around unresolved relationships, particularly within the family. 

Lots of people operate under the assumption that forgiving someone means accepting an apology or saying what they did was ok. That...

It's Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and I don’t know about you, but few things incite my perfectionist like entertaining. Having people in my house, eating food that I served used to nearly send me off the rails. The idea of being judged?! 

If you are like me or th...

Women’s intuition. 

We’ve all heard of it. But, let me let you in on a little secret gals, we don’t have the corner on the market. Men have intuition too, we all do. 

It’s the wisdom that lives deep inside of you, that sends up red flags when you’re dating the wrong gu...

Then it was I’ll be so happy when my kid sleeps through the night.

Then it was I’ll be so happy when I’m not being pulled between my professional obligations and being a mom.

Have you ever made yourself busy because you didn’t want someone to think you were lazy? I have (raises hand sheepishly). Isn’t it funny what we will and won’t do when we feel like we are being judged?

I worked with a woman I’ll call Stacy who had her hands full with th...

My client (let’s call her Janet) has a good marriage, but she wanted her husband to be more enthusiastic about doing things with her on the weekend. She wanted him to plan activities and be excited about going with her. 

As we worked through her frustration a couple of...

My 19-year-old daughter moved to Orlando just about a week ago.

As I write this, Hurricane Dorian is heading in that direction.

She, like me, is a California girl born and raised. We know how to duck and cover for an earthquake, I don’t know how helpful that is in a hurr...
