Is it time to create a “new normal?”

Posted

“Sometimes, I wish I was a celebrity,” Lisa said as she walked in to my office. She explained that she wasn’t interested fame or materialism.  She was jealous of the celebrities who were being treated for exhaustion.   Lisa was stuck in a vicious cycle.  She knew intellectually that if she didn’t do something to take […]

What Do Potholes Have to Do with Your Relationship?

It’s always around this time of year that the winter blues start setting in. It’s dark and cold and most of us just want to hibernate. When we do go out we have to deal with the damage the cold weather leaves behind: potholes. Potholes turn a simple ride to work into a stressful obstacle […]

Want to Have the Strength Of An Olympian? Here’s the secret.

Every four years, I am overcome with Summer Olympic Fever. I love the pageantry of the opening ceremony, the sentimentality of the medal ceremonies, and the amazing focus and dedication of the athletes.

Are You Dealing with More Sh*t Than You Need To?

Posted

“I am so sick of wiping this kid’s ass!  She’s five years old, for god’s sake.  I do everything for these kids and they appreciate none of it,”  Ashley said as she walked in. Clearly, Ashley was having a bit of a mommy meltdown. After allowing her to vent until she ran out of breath, […]
