Despair is so difficult to heal from because often people are not comfortable admitting to themselves or to their social, spiritual, and mental support systems that they're feeling it in the first place. The first step must be to acknowledge it in a public space. Read more →
There is so much hype about metaphysically and holistically ridding yourself of what is toxic to you that makes it even more difficult to know what is and is not. I think it is so important to clarify what all this means – and doesn’t mean – and then how to clear yourself from what really is poisonous for your body, mind and spirit, ongoing. How do we know what is emotionally toxic? Here are ten primary symptoms: Read more →
In spiritual terms all change is about more greatly finding yourself and seeing the truth about the world you live(d) in. These two results reshape you to “meet”, through your life’s journeys, your truly desired “change(s). Read more →
How many stories have you lived in your life? I do so much key therapeutic work in my practice focusing on establishing with clients what presents as the real meaning to uncovering identity, history, and real choice as the elements to self-healing and development around telling one’s “stories” – and considering how fluid they can be to support desired transformation.

When we are compromised in not only how we can fully function in our lives but how free, at ease, centered and empowered we are, depression and anxiety exist. Addictions bring depression and anxiety as part of what needs to be addressed and isn’t.
Depression and anxiety are not the same as fear, but fear is part of feeling depressed and anxious. When we are depressed and anxious we “can’t get it together”, which drives us to act out – and always makes matters worse ... What can we do to promote self-healing, empowerment and transcendence to treat as a Centering Tool these deadly and world-perpetuating states of dis-ease? Here are the ways I consistently and successfully offer in my practice, and practice in my life: Read more →
I see the story as a key “handle” to self-healing, recovery, empowerment, and transformation. It is a simple metaphor that offers centering inner “links” to children and adults who feel they have lost their sense of self to be able to develop truly greater selves, and the wherewithal to successfully meet and transcend life’s challenges.
Bullying has finally become a key topic and recovery focus for our times. Merinda is fundamentally a story about understanding that bullying only continues to occur when we believe ourselves to be victims, which directly creates an inner “giveaway” of ourselves along with a covered-up “inner bully.” Like Merinda, we “please to survive.” Dysfunction creates and perpetuates unending power struggles in relationships endlessly ricocheting between dominance and submission. I am excited to tell Merinda’s story in all settings that commit to teambuilding, interdependence, new leadership skills, and healing partnerships. Read more →
Five Key Ways to Recover Your Power to Believe in Yourself and Transform Your Life
1. Say It five times a day: “I believe in me.” (This was actually the key line in the hit song from the play, recently revived on Broadway, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”.)
2. Say Even More five times day: “I come to know, accept, and trust in myself in more and more ways; and experience my higher power.” . . .
4. Believe the Circumstances of Your Life Right Now as a Free Observer. If you can without judgment or your “script” answer the questions who, what, where, when, why and how as you note what is going on in your life, you break through conditioned fears and patterns of resistance and become more empowered and free.
5. Dare to ask yourself what you really want – and ask your higher power for the courage to choose and commit to act accordingly. Read more →
