Since Our Young Can’t Walk, Our Mothers Need Choice (And other good reasons to protect our freedom to choose)

2019-07-16T18:41:04+00:00

As an Intimacy Coach who focuses on helping my clients integrate trauma, I wanted to share my thoughts on why it is vital that a government that cares about the health of its people always empower women to have control over our reproduction.

THE INNER WORK NEEDED TO FACE THE UNBEARABLE AROUND US

A former client wrote me early this morning, reflecting on last weekend’s horrifying shooting at the synagogue outside of Pittsburgh, and said, “There is so much shared grief and disbelief — my personal experience seems unimportant. This is a time for community and for me to be calm and listen”.

LEADERSHIP FROM THE INSIDE OUT: A NEW MODEL FOR THE HEALING ARTS

2019-07-16T18:31:25+00:00

It’s Wednesday again. Which means the nervousness will start right after lunch. As the afternoon wears on I will grow distracted, answering texts a little too fast and checking Facebook compulsively. My gut will begin to churn shortly after 4pm. By 6pm I will have tried on and changed my outfit at least three times. Despite my weekly resolution, I will still leave my house 10 minutes late, my feet cement, loath to exit my warm loft for the cold walk to my car.

I BECOME REAL WHEN YOU BELIEVE ME: WHY BELIEVING SURVIVORS MATTERS

2019-07-18T15:26:23+00:00

The hashtag for much of the activism around the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is, #BelieveSurvivors. I have been reflecting deeply on what that means. In light of the response by many to discredit people -not just women but all genders – who come forward with stories of sexual assault, I wanted to share my perspective on why believing survivors is a radical act of service, support and healing.

MY FIRST VIPASSSANA RETREAT AND WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER DO THIS

2019-07-28T15:24:03+00:00

I also thought, since this retreat is all about introspection, why don’t I leave my contacts out and let the world fade. Thirty years of wearing corrective lenses has rendered me acutely nearsighted and so the blurry world around me made it easy to anchor my focus inside.

CHOOSING YOUR OWN SHOES: AN INTIMACY COACHING LESSON

2019-07-30T16:49:36+00:00

A simple tenet uniting all of us in holistic wellness is that we all want to feel good. Seems obvious! To have harmony with our spouses. To have that cute guy or girl call you back. To be running a bustling business. To wake refreshed each day. I know that’s what I want!
