Your Words Matter: How to Talk to Yourself in a Way That Makes You Feel Better

By |2020-10-31T16:51:10+00:00October 31st, 2020|Self-talk|

I’ve been walking around lately saying “I’ve got this!” I’ve been saying this partly because I’m in the midst of creating a new program and I always get scared when I do something new. I’ve also been saying it because winter is coming and I’m a little worried about how I’ll handle the pandemic without [...]

Social Media and Your Body

By |2020-10-12T03:05:18+00:00October 12th, 2020|Uncategorized|

Please watch The Social Dilemma. It will show you why we spend so much time on social media, what it is doing to our thinking, and the resulting social divide. On a personal note, it helped partially explain to me why my brother-in-law and I, both good people, see the world so differently. The reason [...]

“No” is a Complete Sentence

By |2020-09-30T14:35:49+00:00September 29th, 2020|Uncategorized|

It’s a grey Seattle morning.  I’m drinking coffee and reading “Detox Your Life” by my friend and colleague Rebecca Gould.  I highly recommend you get it.

A Through Line

By |2020-08-06T00:07:04+00:00August 5th, 2020|Connection, COVID-19, Poem|

When I was a child, half a century ago books, playing outside, and my sister provided respite from a scary world. Time passed. I, and my coping skills, grew. I thought I needed respite less. Time passed. The worlds continued to shift. COVID visits and I remember. Books, being outside, and connecting to people I [...]

Now is The Time to Take Action Against Racism

Now is the time. Now is the time to do whatever we can to fight racism. That doing will not be the same for everyone. Many of my clients, and I, are saying and feeling, “I’m not doing enough.” I am of two minds about this. First, it is true.  There is more we could [...]

Dig Deep and Know Your Strength

I believe tragedy shows us who we are, at our core. In my twenties I often wondered how I would have responded in WWII if I lived in Germany and wasn't Jewish. Would I have turned in Jews? Would I have punished others? Would I have helped Jews, risking my life and those I love—to [...]
