For that reason, there’s lots of discussion surrounding depression, bi-polar disorder, and anxiety. It’s admirable that society is working so hard to remove the stigma surrounding mental illness.

  2. At-Home Remedies For Your Anxiety

    If you’re locked up in your home and trying to wait out a global pandemic like the rest of us, you’re likely not feeling too great about your anxiety. The social climate isn’t doing much to help with those anxieties either.

  4. Mini-Vacation

    My husband and I have created a tradition of taking a long weekend to the beach twice a year. We have certain criteria for a short break – less than a 3 hours driving distance to avoid use of the airport, restaurants and activities within walking distance of the hotel, post- or pre- season, and within a budget including a dog sitter. As a result, a tradition has been born. This year I was somewh…Read More

  5. Why I Want to See You Weekly

    "I'm feeling much better and I want to see what happens if I see you in 2 weeks. Do you think that's alright?" "I can't afford to come weekly. Do you think twice a month or once every 3 weeks will be OK?" These are complex questions. What is really being asked? How is treatment or the therapeutic relationship being perceived? A good therapist would be open to exploring rather than answering the cl…Read More

  6. Resolve

    Did you make a New Year's resolution? A fresh start. Goals. New year of reflections, past and future. I couldn't wait for 2016 to finish. In hindsight, I can't recall a time when I longed for a particular year to remain. Last year, I hired a marketing company to boost my cyber presence and business. Started a blog. Considered firing my supervision group and leaving my church, maybe even converting…Read More

  7. Being Unreasonable

    Fee arrangements for services have different significance for others. Since opening my private practice, I have heard various responses about my fee-for-service from "good for you" to "I'd never pay" to "Sounds great but I couldn't afford it." Interestingly, as much as I even received flat out insults from my own family ("I'd never pay for weekly therapy"), I didn't waiver to accept insurance or c…Read More

  8. Family Business

    "Your family seems rather normal," claims my therapist with a smile after my litany of complaints and reasons the holiday season sucks. I chuckled because she named my unspoken fantasy of the Norman Rockwell image of holiday celebration and gatherings.   The warmth of his paintings captures a comfort and peacefulness of generations around feasts with decorations donning the walls and fire mantle…Read More

  9. Is Avoiding Anger Helpful?

    The image of anger is portrayed as a snarly, fanged monster, once released -- the rage and fury will devour and destroy.  But when anger is not addressed it could become turned inward.  Thus, the dichotomy arises between outward destruction or internal turmoil. Coming into the holiday season, I sense my mood lowering into a melancholy state.  I find it difficult to cope with family dynamics and…Read More

  10. I’m Gonna Disappoint You and Be OK with It

    "Is there a way you can make the call while on vacation next week?"  asks my colleague,  "I'll miss your laughter and contribution to group." Immediately, I sense being attacked and ready to defend.  I wanted to protect myself from feeling mortified and ashamed.  Plus, I believed I needed to protect my colleague from my decision to enjoy my time on vacation instead of satisfying her with my pr…Read More
