My, How Quickly Things Change

For the time being, I will only be seeing clients remotely — that is, by video or phone (your choice). My hours remain the same, and you can still schedule our conversations in the usual ways: by texting/emailing/calling me or my assistant, Darbi, or through the online scheduling calendar. During our sessions, this is where…

Another Way to Look at Things (When Things Seem So Gloomy)

It’s likely been a rough week for you and those around you. Besides constant streams of news, you’re probably being bombarded with emails from all kinds of companies and organizations letting you know what they are doing to handle this current public health situation. Me, too. I want to offer another window to see through……

How We’ll Manage with COVID-19

New Windows to Gaze Through

Have you noticed that I get bored easily? That’s not really accurate — truth is, I want to experience more than I think any one place can offer. But it sure might seem like I “just can’t stay put”! I hope you’ll reap the benefits of my ongoing search for experiences. New Houston Office Some…

“Autumn” Here

My favorite season was always autumn. Partly because I’m not a fan of summer’s heat, and partly because of the beautifully colorful images that I (along with all the other kids growing up on the Gulf Coast) saw represented by books, TV, movies… It didn’t really matter that those images virtually never looked like our…

How might any of these happenings interact with your world? Another Day, Another Office As promised, I’m now in the Houston office 3 days each week — Sundays,…

Parents & Emotions: Keep a lid on it, or let it out?

Raising young humans is always, without a doubt, an emotionally challenging job. It’s been my experience that most parents hope to do at least a few things differently than they recall from their own childhood. When you add to those normal challenges a parent’s strong desire to be better at the job, the pressure can…

Meditation for Regular People

I’m excited to finally be offering meditation classes. But wait, I hear “What do you mean by ‘regular people’??” I’ve often recommended meditation to clients. And many have let me know that they think meditation might be just great — for someone else. The thought most often expressed: “I can’t make my mind be quiet.”…

Alternative, Normal, Possible

It’s time again to look at my book pile. As usual, this won’t be a complicated, dense review — just a quick list of what I’m reading right now. I don’t intentionally read books that have things in common during the same span of time, but I enjoy wondering if there are unintended connections among…

Squirming Through Courage

Feels like there are weights in the soles of your shoes at every step down the crowded hallway where you recognize every mark on the tile floor because you’ve done this every day for months (years?), staring down at the next tile in your path because you don’t dare look up and see the faces…
