All You Need is Love - 4 Tips For Increasing Harmony in Relationships

As Valentine's Day rolls around, many of us begin to think of ways to show people how much we care. We shop, bake, and plan celebrations hoping that those special people will understand that they are truly loved.

7 Tips for Rewriting Resolutions From the Heart

Every year many of us make the same New Year’s resolutions. We resolve to eat less, exercise more, spend less, save more, be kinder to others and ourselves, and perhaps even help save our beautiful planet. Sounds inspiring, doesn’t it? We start out feeling pretty good about our healthy choices and altruistic spirit. Then the end of the year rolls around and we wonder, what happened?

Why is it so challenging to accomplish these resolutions and what can we do to break this cycle? When…

5 Tips for Creating a Happy Holiday Season

In the past, many of us were accustomed to celebrating the holidays with reckless abandon. Over spending in the name of holiday cheer was quite common. At times, our decorating turned into neighborhood contests to see who could string the most lights without tripping the circuit breaker. Our biggest holiday challenge may have been what to buy a distant relative we saw once a year. Oh yes, those were the days.

It is now 2012 and for some of us, our financial resources as well as our…

*****Choose Kind - Support October National Bully Prevention Month*****

As a child and family therapist, I have observed how bullying can affect children in very significant and long lasting ways. As a former target of bullying, I have experienced first hand feeling powerless and not having the education and skills to manage the situation.

Bullies look for weak links in the chain and then zero in on their targets. Those who experience low self-esteem and have challenges finding their voices are perfect targets. Many suffer in silence, lacking the tools…

Dreams not Manifesting Fast Enough? - 3 Lessons from the Garden to Promote Patience

Sometimes no matter how positive our intentions are, how much we believe in ourselves, and how many action steps we take, it may feel like nothing is happening in our lives. Many of us have spent a great deal of time and energy releasing the old and are ready for the new to manifest. Yet, nothing seems to have changed on the outside. During this time, it may be challenging for many of us to keep an optimistic outlook.

Our egos may step in and try to convince us that we are not…

How to Ask for What you Want-5 Steps to Increase Effective Communication

Many women who grew up in the 60’s and 70’s were unconsciously programmed to be caregivers. We learned from our mothers and grandmothers the importance of taking care of others first and ourselves last. As adults we continued to carry on this tradition. We took our responsibilities very seriously.

Proper etiquette dictated that at mealtime women were to take care of family and friends first. Then, when everyone  else was satisfied, they were free to help themselves to whatever was…

Conscious Parenting of Young Adults

Parenting young adults in the 18-25+ year old range can be very challenging. These offspring are no longer children yet they are still maturing emotionally and intellectually. Research seems to indicate that their prefrontal cortex executive functioning skills do not reach maturity until approximately age 25. This means that their ability to see the big picture, solve problems, and control impulses may be compromised. In addition, many young adults who are striving toward independence may be…

Graceful Choices

                                                             Graceful Choices

With each choice you make, you either set a cycle of grace into motion or you withhold grace. ~ Caroline Myss

In every moment we make the choice to live in faith or fear. Choices made with a positive intention are based on faith and those made with a negative intention are based on fear. All choices are necessary for learning and are made at just the right time at just the right place.…

Conscious Communication

As a child and family therapist working in the foster care system, I noticed how challenging it was for individuals to communicate during times of rapid change. Fear and uncertainty would tend to bring out the worst in the human experience. Egos would attack other egos and communication became very ineffective.


Many of us on this planet are currently experiencing change and uncertainty as never before. No matter how spiritually evolved we are, there are times when our human…

Is Your Life Going According to Your Plan? -7 Golden Nuggets for Managing Change

We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. ~ Joseph Campbell


When we are experiencing an unanticipated life transition, many things that we believed to be true are no more. Most of us will be required to let go of things that no longer fit in our lives. Letting go is uncomfortable and we tend to resist it. Even if we believe that change is a good thing, it is still challenging to find our sense of…
