I like to take pictures with my very fancy camera. I love shooting photos because itâ€™s one of the few places in my life where only my perspective matters. When Iâ€™m taking pictures I lose all self-consciousness about how I see things, and can completely immerse myself in what I believe to be true and perfect. Itâ€™s my photo, my angle, and most importantly my point of view. You may not know it, but your perspective of the world is extremely valuable. How you see things is just as important as how you feel. An even more important concept, however, […]

Youâ€™ve probably been in a situation at some point in your life when you have had to decide whether toss something out or repair it. Maybe it was a tattered pillow, a ripped pair of jeans, or an old radio. Deciding to discard something that has some potential for rejuvenation may not be too hard in every day life, but when it comes to a relationship itâ€™s pure torture. Relationships get broken just like the items in our lives, but we canâ€™t just throw them away without much thought. We spend torturous hours deciding whether itâ€™s worth saving, or if […]

I first learned that love isnâ€™t optional when my heart was broken into a million pieces by my husband of 20 years. Up until that point I illusively thought that I had willingly entered into the highly desired status of eternal love. I now realize that I had put myself, and my relationship, on a pedestal so high that when we fell, I cracked open in humpty dumpty style. The un-relenting physiological experience of that breakup proved to me forever that when it comes to matters of the heart, we donâ€™t have much say. As human beings we fall in […]

Opportunity can be overwhelming. I read a lot of blogs and books about abundance, living fully, and creating the life you want. While there is nothing wrong with wanting to get the most out of your time here on earth, I have found that too many choices can lead to indecision and paralyzing fear. When my kids were little it was all about limiting choices. Whether it was the cereal they were eating for breakfast, or the clothes they would wear to school, I always presented them with a maximum of two options. This gave them a sense of power […]

The process of divorce is hard enough, but when you have to co-parent with an ex who has become the bane of your existence, things can get worse. Some parents become better at being caregivers after divorce because they find their own voice and style outside the relationship. Others transform into an unrecognizable version of themselves, making parenting a horribly intolerable experience. Either way, when you canâ€™t stand the person you are parenting with, life can become a drag, and the battle becomes exhausting. Read on.

I sit with stories of infidelity all day long. As a therapist working with relationships, you can be assured that almost every person I see is currently struggling with an infidelity from the past, in the present, or an intuitive feeling that they will one day become the victim or perpetrator of an affair. The small percentage of couples that come to see me before an infidelity have an opportunity to prevent the egregious act by taking a hard look at the relationship. Cracking open the facade of a relationship to see what might be lurking underneath can be scary, […]
