1. PTSD Treatment: What is It and How Can It Help?

    The acronym “PTSD” is a somewhat recent development in the grand scheme of human societal progression. The term didn’t even exist 60+ years ago, nor did a larger awareness about mental health. The experience of trauma was quite misunderstood (as was the larger picture of mental health) back in the day, but as technology and mental health awareness has improved over the past decades, we have …Read More

  2. Anger Management & Couples Counseling, Part 2

    Tempering your anger does not come naturally to humans. We are emotional creatures who are made to feel a wide variety of feelings, such as anger, joy, love, hate, compassion, and sympathy. However, we can also feel jealousy and covetousness. Humans are no doubt complicated, which can be said for our emotions as well.

  4. The Benefits of Therapy

    Life is a strange and unpredictable thing. Like a roller coaster in the dark, you are unaware of what twists and turns are coming your way. One moment you might be riding high only to be sent into a sudden and unexpected descent. It’s important to know that you don’t have to be alone on this ride. Not only do you have friends and family ready to buckle in, but you also have the option to see a…Read More

  5. 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

  6. Managing Emotions During The Holidays

    The holidays are always advertised as the happiest time of the year, but this isn’t the case for everyone. The amount of activities, celebrations and overall energy of this time of the year is something that can bring up a lot of raw emotions, both good and bad, that can overwhelm an individual. At the office of Wendy Iglehart, we help quite a few people through the difficult times that they fac…Read More

  7. Bow — “less”

    Currently, I experience a resistance to join the blog community without a neat bow to provide a thoughtful message.  Many times a patient has attended a session believing there wasn't much to say or even offer to me.  Frankly, I empathize with this notion.  Then a thought occurred to me -- I would still prepare a delicious meal to enjoy by myself.  Why would I deprive myself the pleasure of jo…Read More

  8. Laughter Is the Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

    Face muscle soreness, shortness of breath, redden face, tears streaming out of the eyes, mucus running out of the nose, coughing, bladder threatening to release urine, and stomach muscle achiness.  Does this sound like fun to you?  When the traits of laughter are presented, it appears rather odd that I love to laugh.  Maybe the joy of laughter is generational. My grandmother would be scolded by…Read More

  9. The Deception of 6 Easy Steps

    The outdated, frayed loveseat appeared sadly out of place next to the new modern sofa set.  Rather than discard the old piece of furniture, I thought a slip cover would give a fresh facelift and still provide comfort for the dog to catch a snooze.  I read on-line reviews ranging from satisfaction to being a "pain in the ass" and I also watched a video for fit tips about slipcovers.  Eventually …Read More

  10. Wedding Gown and SUV

    I tossed and turned all night.  Nerves and excitement radiated through my body.  Would I find the right gown?  Will I have the teary experience as seen on TV when the bride just "knows" this is the ONE?  Since elementary school, I fantasized about wearing a long, dreamy wedding gown.  The bridal consultant greeted my mom, my maid-of-honor and me at the front store door.  The consultant asked…Read More
