STRATEGIES FOR LETTING GO

​If you want to move forward, even better, if you want to soar, you have to be able to let go. Let go of what is holding you back; whether it is the past, worry, insecurities, etc. Letting go can be difficult, but if you focus on replaying the past you can be stuck in pain and unhappiness. Holding on...[ read more ]

MANAGING YOUR ANGER

Many of the people that I see in my practice mask their feelings with anger. Anger is what they can identify with. Embarrassment, disappointment, fear, shame; these feelings are hidden under the guise of anger. Anger is just a feeling. It is neither bad nor good. However, anger can become a problem when it is experienced excessively, explosively or is...[ read more ]

KIDS AND SCREEN TIME

Screens are everywhere.  Phones, tablets, ebooks, computers, handheld game systems, etc.  It is nearly impossible to keep screens away from our children these days.  Technology can be beneficial to children.

DEALING WITH IMPOSTER SYNDROME

After we have accomplished our goals, we may not feel the happiness we had hoped for. We worked hard and did our best in our career, but it still feels like we aren’t good enough; like we are an imposter in our own life. We might feel like we do not deserve the life that we have. A relatively new...[ read more ]

LETTING GO OF PERFECTIONISM

The holiday season is a stressful time of year. It’s stressful financially as you run around playing Santa for everyone you know. It’s stressful on your time as you go from holiday concert to holiday pageant to family pictures. It’s stressful emotionally as the days are shorter and colder and although you’d rather hibernate, you have so much to accomplish...[ read more ]

GET SOME REST

Earlier this week I struggled with calming my mind and falling asleep. So I headed to the couch to watch a Hallmark Christmas movie, which, in the moment, felt like a luxurious way to spend my time. Needless to say, I was tired the next day. I had little if any patience with my children while getting everyone ready for...[ read more ]

My practice specializes in helping people find time for self-care, discover balance and implement positive self talk. Many of my clients feel that they do not have enough time to get everything done.
