A Long Holiday Weekend

This weekend, summer unofficially arises from the cold earth and skiing and already the rush is on. Boats in the water this weekend, cookouts planned, tourists on the highway heading to Cape Cod and/or Rhode Island beaches and life is coming back to the “normal” of summer traffic on the highway. Reminds me of an old saying: “God’s in His…

What Is A Powerful Person

In my 20+ years as a psychotherapist seeing 42 patients a week, I learned an immense amount of practical knowledge about working with strong and/or manipulative personalities. I also learned to see quite clearly the distinction between powerful personalities and powerful people. Believe it or not, there is a vast difference. A strong personality is frequently someone who has a…

Christmas Expectations

Most newsletters sent out today or tomorrow are usually wonderfully inspiring and ethereal. That is such a gift.   However, I would like to provide another approach. As a psychotherapist in private practice for 25+ years, this time of year – November 15th to January 15th, extra appointments were always the norm…. Why? Expectations. It is true that this time of…

Periods Of Reflection

Frequently during this past week, I heard myself saying:” Don’t go looking for logic, there isn’t any.”  Whether I was very critically going over in my head that I had talked too much at a dinner, or at another moment saying: “Why don’t you ever speak up?” Which message was correct? Probably both...  After sharing it all with girlfriends, the…

Different Lives – Different Experiences

Do you ever forget that there is so much more to you than simply your career and your family? Your family can be a blessing that makes life so worth living. Hopefully, your career calls you to continuously become so much more of who you are meant to be. Nonetheless, the many additional aspects of you may include your love…

True Success and Mental Health

This past weekend I keynoted as a speaker for the Killingworth Women’s Organization’s Health and Wellness Expo on issues related to domestic abuse. Although the title was Real Women Change the World: Letting the Good Girl Die So the Real Woman Can Live, after one of my books, the topic truly was on Mental Health. As shown when a male…

A Smorgasbord Week

This is one of those weeks where life is a smorgasbord of activities. Some have been incredibly sad, some wonderfully exciting, others simply demanding so much time and creativity, and thankfully also those moments that are pure bliss. It is so easy to become ungrounded, reactionary, and angry in the midst of such emotional turmoil and seemingly conflicting emotions. Haven’t…

The Faces of Change

This past Wednesday I did something I have not done since Covid hit – over 2 ½ years ago. My God, 2 ½ years!!!!!  It feels like forever. Dramatic I know, but that is how it feels. I got on a train and went into NYC to meet with 3 wonderful friends. When I left the house, I thought I…

Picking Up the Pieces

I get calls or texts daily from folks in fear of what is happening here in the USA. Whatever their belief system, there is a fear of what is happening and what is coming. I certainly have very powerful, strong, beliefs that may agree or disagree with the caller. For me, however, those phone calls are simply a cry from…
