Most of us live in a state of constant conflict because the head and the heart don’t always agree. This can happen through the process of grieving or with any big transition where we are faced with making a decision. Generally speaking, thinking too much is a problem, and that when you can come from your heart it’s a much more pleasant existence. However, your heart can also steer you in the wrong direction leaving you with illogical ideas, and motivated by feelings that don’t serve you. The conflict between head and heart is ongoing, but much of the distress […]

Over the course of my life I have been given certain “gifts” that have forced me to step into the arena of life. I’m a firm believer in the idea that everything happens for a reason, and if we don’t step up and use our experiences as catapults for change and growth then we’re throwing away opportunities to touch and heal other people with similar challenges. Over the past year I made a conscious choice to step out and speak my truth around my battle with Cancer and the loss of my marriage. My sole intention has been to be […]

“To begin by always thinking of love as an action rather than a feeling is one way in which anyone using the word in this manner automatically assumes accountability and responsibility.” – Bell Hooks My quest for love happens daily on both a personal and professional level. I seek to understand its meaning conceptually, and I’m constantly learning how to actualize it in my interpersonal relationships. Love has been an ongoing inquiry for me because like you, I need love like I need air and water. While I know I can “survive” without love, research in Neuroscience has taught me […]

The most prominent presenting problem for couples seeking therapy is chronic fighting patterns. Couples report that they want to stop fighting, and that they find themselves arguing over the same issues again and again. While fighting can be an ugly part of a struggling relationship, healthy arguments are an essential part of a relationship’s overall wellbeing. Unless you are in a merged relationship with your partner where you see everything as if you were one person, you are going to have differences of thoughts, feelings and values that may generate some heat between you and your partner. This is actually […]

What’s Really Going On? We’re just going to come out and say it: Wanting to throttle your husband from time to time is perfectly normal. But if you’re constantly coming up against the same relationship problem—and experts say most couples do—then you’ll have to get to the root of the conflict if you want to move forward as a happier, healthier, more-connected couple. No partnership is impervious to these patterns, but they can corrode perfectly loving bonds over time, especially if you think your conflict is really about chores, or hygiene, or dirty socks on the bedroom floor. It’s not. […]

Love is a two way street. It is meant to be given, and received. How you give love is probably very much connected to how you long to receive it, but the exchange is not always so linear. Everyone defines and receives love differently. You might receive love in the form of gifts, in the written word, or through sex. Or you may be someone who receives love in the form of being supported, complemented or taken care of financially. As a giver of love you may assume that doing your partners laundry, providing financially or taking out the trash […]
