The Deep Yes and The Brave No

May 23, 2014


In March, we bought our first electric car. Not only it is awesome not to have to buy gas every week, but it makes me feel like we’re really being as environmentally responsible as possible. We dished out big money to have all energy-saver appliances when we bought our home, we’ve signed up with the […]

Just because you get it…

February 16, 2013


…doesn’t mean that everybody else does.  The other week I was coaching a client who is having trouble with her friendships. This woman is kind, thoughtful and intelligent. She makes sure to show up for the people she loves. During one of our sessions, I actually thought to myself-If she’s having trouble making good friends, then […]

Unexpressed love

February 7, 2013


There have been two times in my life that I’ve almost died. The first one came at age 19, when I was diagnosed with stage 3b lymphoma.

But I’m sure you’ve had enough of the self-help, vague platitudes. The real question is-if the best advice comes from within you, […]

A *new* year. A clean slate. And perhaps a list of things you’ve resolved to do. Or not do. Maybe you’ve decided to give up smoking, stop eating chocolate, lose ten pounds. Who knows? Perhaps you’re on a treadmill right now, power walking furiously and logging your breakfast onto MyFitnessPal. Or maybe you haven’t made any […]
