Cultivating Calm in Chaos

It’s the holidays again—the most wonderful time of the year.  If you’re like me, you just rolled your eyes so hard that you may have pulled an optical muscle.  It’s a lot, right?  It seems like overnight, while Halloween was being put away, Christmas burst onto the scene, ready or not.  What do you feel […]

Morning Routines

Morning Routines, They Really Work My husband recently came to me and said, “I’m starting a new morning routine. Want to join me?”. I was interested since I am a routine person by nature.  I had a morning routine, only there was no “me time” built in. It was a rushed, fast-paced routine of getting […]

Holiday Stress and Boundaries

The holidays are upon us! For many, this is a time of rest, relaxation, and time with family. For many though, this is a time fraught with tension and turmoil – some are not even welcome to come home. Normally, I would use this as an opportunity to remind people to take time to practice […]

IT’S ALL ABOUT CONTEXT 🤣

Why does this meme tickle us so? Contrasting a Bank Robber DJ Preacher all contained in 3 concentric circles where the stark difference between words and meaning are elucidated (fancy word right ). What a lesson we can take from something so simple. Recently I have noticed a theme in my sessions and I’m in a […]

Fall Back to Move Forward

“The Sage is occupied with the unspoken and acts without effort. Teaching without verbosity, producing without possessing, creating without regard to result, claiming nothing, the Sage has nothing to lose.” – Tao Tê Ching When you boil it all down, we as humans desire the same three things no matter who we are, where we […]

Do You Find Yourself Trapped in Being “Nice” or “Too Nice”?

For those who don’t know, I spend a lot of time working with men and women who have experienced trauma – both singular traumatic events, prolonged toxic relationships, recurrent abuses, and lack of atunement with caregivers during early childhood. Inevitably part of our work focuses on helping them re–establish boundaries that have been lost, or […]
