There Is Nothing Wrong With You

With several of my new clients, our initial conversations often include the question, “What’s wrong with me?”  I have asked myself and my therapist that same question so many times.  In the old days, I would ask the question and then eat a TON of chocolate.  Today, I want to share with you what I [...]

What Is The Alchemy Of Love?

I was recently asked to speak at a conference on the Alchemy of Love.  The title intrigued me because most people think of alchemy as turning metals into gold.  So, the question in my mind became, “What does love have to do with alchemy?” As I researched my talk, it became clear to me that [...]

Be the Change

There is a lot of attention on the subject of love during this month.  I don’t know about you but I am acutely aware of how alone and uncomfortable so many are right now. Instead of feeling love or loved, they are concerned and scared.  I have noticed an upsurge in the angst of my [...]

You Are The Gift

Well, here we are in December and the rush is on for the holidays.  I live in Colorado and people are cutting down Christmas trees, decorating and shopping.  There is a lot of conversation in my family about what this holiday means to them.

Trust and Safety

Well, to say there is a lot going on with people today is an understatement.  People are experiencing acceleration and unprecedented change.  Wars, mass migration and bitter elections are confronting us in extraordinary ways.  So much so that we feel confused, unsafe and untrusting.  My clients have come to me feeling distraught, anxious and weary.  [...]

Are You Emotionally Healthy?

Have you noticed that people are feeling stressed?  I see it all around me.  My clients have come in wanting to know how to handle their feelings around world challenges, the election, family dysfunction and frustration with work.  Many feel distressed, overworked and incapable of handling the surge of emotions that are flooding their lives. [...]

We Are All Connected

This has been such an incredible time.   So many of us are questioning what it means to be on the planet at this time.  Terrorism, shootings and political showdowns are everywhere in the news.  So much of the information does not support our remembering that we are all part of one human family.  In other [...]

Radical Self Care

There are times in our lives when we are unusually busy; and, for some people this is a lifestyle. The holiday season is especially a time when we can lose our sense of self care. There are family events, business affairs, community responsibilities, and sometimes feelings of being alone and even separate. Let us address, [...]

Today, I take a moment to honor the amazing Robin Williams. His brilliance, wit, humor and creativity have inspired me for many years. I spent many hours in front of my television and in movie theatres being blessed by his talent. As I reflected on his challenge and ultimate death, it took into a place [...]
