Groundhog Day

  You wake up bleary eyed and stumble to the bathroom.  You hear your household awakening, the sounds of your neighborhood.  A movie preview of your morning plays on the screen of your mind.  You sense disappointment or even dread in the pit of your stomach.  The same old round of chores.  The same incomplete projects.  Your inner voice says...[ read more ]

Seen and Heard

To be seen and heard.  Very basic stuff.  Isn’t this what we usually experience? If we had full presence and attention as an infant, when we were our most helpless and cute we were lucky.  Full-bodied presence for self and others is a discipline that requires dedication and self-study.  To be truly aware of you, I need to be aware...[ read more ]

Space

If you’re like me, you use the word ‘space’ pretty frequently.  ‘I need some space', ‘I hold space for my clients', and ‘this is a great space!’  Some folks are more sensitive to the feeling of space within their bodies and others to their environmental space.  And still others are new to the feeling and sensations associated with space.  The...[ read more ]

Change

When we attempt to force change we may find ourselves on a long and torturous path, feeling more distraught, agitated and disappointed. Yes, desire is an important part of our lives. It actually makes a life happen leading to experiences, careers, and relationships. Life lessons come out of the fruition of those desires. Part of those lessons are days when...[ read more ]

Connected

CONNECTED There’s something lovely about this word.  It calls up images of people relating to each other, really engaged talking and laughing, making great eye contact.  Perhaps a less visually exciting image: a person who is deeply connected to her inner self, mindful of her feelings, actions and words, living more consciously. This type of connection is an outcome of...[ read more ]

Turning Points

Have there been times in your life when you found yourself on unfamiliar terrain? When all you could do was come to a stop or soldier on without a roadmap? When fear, numbness, and confusion reigned?  Sounds a lot like 2020. I remember when in my early thirties I was separated from my husband, raising my 3-year-old daughter, and caring...[ read more ]

Crossing the Bridge

You know something is not right.  You may have frustration with your career, a close relationship, your health, or body image.  You're feeling edgy and easily agitated.  You're not happy with yourself, and the gap between where you stand and where you want to be looks like a huge moat.  The good news is, with assistance, dissatisfaction can morph into...[ read more ]

Fall into Listening

There’s that crisp changed quality to the air right now. It’s almost not summer anymore. Everywhere you look in the New York area are signs of the life-death-life cycle – bursts of bloom and harvest in contrast to dying plants, the need for warmer clothing, students, teachers and workers trading in leisure time for tight schedules, mental focus, and perhaps...[ read more ]

Center Yourself

What does this mean? In a lightning speed 5G world, centering is more vital than ever. Here are 2 simple techniques that you can use to easily shift into a focused and calm state of mind. Sit with spine straight and feet flat on the floor. Place one hand at the base of your skull – approximately the same level...[ read more ]

I may never stop crying

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the words, “If I start to cry, I may never stop”, spoken in my office. People usually come into therapy with an idea, sometimes clear sometimes vague, of what is ‘wrong’, what needs to change or be eliminated completely.  This could be an unwanted behavior, feeling, physical ailment, or a difficulty...[ read more ]
