Rich or Happy?

Teach happiness too. I don’t mean to pick on private schools; I believe that they have the resources to provide many opportunities for children but lack, in many cases, a longer-term vision and plan for our children’s well-being. But this is not the fault of schools or their administrators. It is us: a certain class […]

Paint A Carpet of Wildflowers

I See You. Parenting is painful, especially if we try to force and control it. On the other hand, it’s exuberant and transformational if we stay centered in love and trust. Easier said than done, I know. It begins with an artist’s eye and a good question: how do I see my children as an […]

Imagine That

There’s a reason Einstein said, “imagination is more important than knowledge.” He didn’t mean that knowledge was unimportant; what he meant is that the way we use our imaginations is fundamentally more important. Most people have no idea how powerful their imaginations are. Over the years that I’ve been teaching people the principles of Neuro-Linguistic […]

Know Thyself

Turning Doubt into Awareness When it seems that nothing is going your way and your path is blocked at every turn, how do you react? Do you feel ugh, “why me?” without even thinking about it? Do you consider all of the things that are going wrong or do you stop yourself and ask: what […]

Another way of saying it is that we matter – to ourselves and others. Regardless of our race, religious beliefs, competencies, or shortcomings, […]

“Time Management”

Does Time Manage You? Are you sick and tired of running out of time? Does it seem like there is never enough? Did last year “go really fast”? If these sound familiar, then you’re probably suffering from Time Sickness. Most of us have a deeply unhealthy relationship with time. And, if you have, it’s no […]

Welcome The Strange

Strong Mental Health Growth, why should we care about it? Isn’t growth something that babies and children do? Doesn’t growth stop after school and reverse as we age? If you want strong mental health, then the answer to these questions is a resounding, no. Because when the concept of growth is shifted into a love of […]

The Social Media Muse

Navigating Social Media Recently, the number of questions I’ve received from my younger clients asking how they can manage their relationships with social media in healthier ways has surprised me. Not that the questions aren’t relevant but just because of their source. Most teens and young adults today have grown up online and feel as […]
