The No Drama Break Up

The No Drama Break Up

When you understand that everyone is doing the very best they can to get the things you want, then there is no need for a drama-filled break up. Why do people break up? Sometimes it’s because of a revelation and sometimes it’s slow building.

I Welcome You

I Welcome You

Sometimes we don’t even know what it looks like, what it feels like, or who they are. We are waiting for this and that or him or her and we don’t know what it would be like.

Words On Worth

I want to share my expanded vision for the WISE Women Network: that together we are all WORTHY, INSPIRED, SUPPORTED and ENGAGED.

How Much Porn Is Too Much Porn?

Until 1994, if you wanted to view pornography, you had to get dressed, get in your car, drive to a seedy shop in a bad part of town and fork over hard-earned cash for an overpriced magazine ... all the while hoping not to be seen by the neighbor's teenage kid, your boss, the police or your spouse. Today, thanks to streaming video over the Internet and smart-phones, finding porn doesn't even require getting out of bed.

Can This Relationship Be Helped?

Can This Relationship Be Helped?

In my counseling practice, individuals often come to me for help wondering if it is really possible to save or improve their relationship. Perhaps their partner is totally uninterested in working on the relationship. Perhaps their partner is an alcoholic or drug addict. What are their chances of saving their relationship?

4 Ways You Can Learn To Love Your Body

"OMG. OMG. Please don't let him see my kangaroo pouch. The lights. The lights. We need to dim the lights. He can't see my flabby thighs or the cellulite on the back of my ass." You retreat. The fire inside you dims. The pleasurable sensations dull all because you can't let go of those damn body hang-ups.

6 Life Lessons For Finding Fulfillment

1. Without risk, there cannot be life.
 During youth and the years of building educational, professional and personal lives it is necessary to reach out and try new things, sometimes facing deep obstacles.
