Certainly this is a beautiful time of year: Flowers blooming, grass growing, trees leafed out. Beauty can exist in so many forms. Some would say a work of art or a sunset. Beauty exists within all of us if we learn to utilize all of our senses. For example, the smell of lilacs in May or Locust tress in early June. Or the sound of a beautiful piece of music, the touch of a loved one or the hug of a child. This is exactly what i ask of my clients for our hypnosis sessions. Make a vivid image in your mind and think of a time in your life when you were truly happy. Maybe a day at the beach or a first date or a birthday party. Now use all your senses to make it come to life: What did you see? what did you hear? what did you feel or smell or taste? Be as specific as possible. If you think in these terms your mind can be tricked into believing you are actually there and you can savor the moment and be truly happy.

Loss is a natural part of life. Life is, after all, a series of emotions that connect people together but can also tear them apart. Loss of any kind is painful and can enter your life in many forms, not just from death. The loss of a person, the loss of a relationship, or even the loss of hope often leads to a sense of sadness and helplessness often described as the “emptiness in your stomach” feeling that seems insurmountable. Loss can make you snappy or spiral you into night after night of restless sleep. It alters your mood and often changes how you see the world around you.
Some people argue that the pain after a loss gets better with time. Others would argue that the pain actually never gets better but that we get better at dealing with it. I suspect the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Why is it that the pain of a loss can feel like it’s never going to subside? On some level it has to be that we believe deep down that we can’t ever be happy again. Some...
When people ask me:” at what point shall I seek counseling?” I tell them: “if you feel like you are not as happy as you could be.” It really is that simple. All of us go through times in our lives when we encounter periods of stress causing us feelings of great discomfort. We can loose our support system in transitions such as relocation, parenthood, and general change in circumstances, accentuating feelings of loneliness and anxiety.
Another reason for seeking counseling is recognizing patterns of behaviors that are not working, such as relationships ending badly in the same sort of way. People often wait too long before they seek help. This may lead to depression and/or physical symptoms, which in turn may result in difficulties in our personal and professional relationships.

Empty-nest syndrome is the name given to the constellation of feelings many parents have when their last or only child leaves home, and they no longer have a baby “chick” in their nest.
After having spent at least two decades as a parent, it is only reasonable to expect that this change will prove difficult. You might experience the following symptoms: sadness, fear in what your role in life is now, major adjustments in what you do each day, how you view yourself, and how your marriage functions.
These problems used to belong almost exclusively to women who were the primary caretakers of the children, and those who had no career. They had no other identity to fall back on. Today both men and women may suffer from empty nest because many women work and men are far more involved in their children’s lives.
THOSE MOST AT RISK FOR THE EMPTY NEST:
Those who have difficulty with separation and change.
Those who also struggle with menopause, ...
Deprssion is different than feeling down from time to time. You may be going through a tough time in your life and feel sad. But what is the difference between depression and true depression disorder?
-Do you find it hard to do the simple tasks that you once found easy to do? (getting out of bed, going to work, interacting with others?
-Do you have feelings of impending doom
-Lack of energy and interruption in sleep or you find yourself sleeping much more than normal?
-Do you have feelings of helplessness and hoplessness and feel that there is nothing to look forward to and life is like living in a black hole?
-Has your eating pattern changed? Are you finding yourself eating too much or not at all?
-You may have physical symptoms of feeling achy and your body feeling sluggish and heavy
These are just a few signs of depression and if you feel that your suffering from them and they are not going away, it may be time to seek help from a professional. Asking for help does not mean y...

One of the most powerful experiences in counseling is that moment when you “connect the dots.” After talking about the stress, pain, anxiety and frustration that brought you to therapy, out of nowhere you have a different way of looking at things. You have ideas and new solutions to problems which seemed overwhelming.
Working with your counselor, you start figuring out how to take the new ideas and use them to make life better.
Sometimes we make things too complicated. Often we just need to let our minds and emotions work on a problem we have brought out and examined by talking it through with a therapist. This is when the “fun” begins as you start seeing how you can make different choices.
Are you ready to start connecting the dots?

Because of the recent press about the amazing benefits of Animal Assisted Therapy more and more therapists are bringing their dogs to work. Is this Animal Assisted Therapy?
Animal Assisted Therapy involves a trained counselor or therapist working with a trained animal in a goal-directed way within that therapists' area of expertise. The therapist should be trained in conducting Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) and ideally have completed a training and/or Certification program as well. While there are no state or national standards to call oneself an "Animal Assisted Therapist" it is considered an area of specialty. As part of their training a therapist learns how to integrate the animal(s) safely and effectively into the therapeutic process. The safety of both the client and the animal must be monitored and considered at all times; during AAT the animal is working - this can be tiring and stressful for any animal. This is why most trained AAT clincians work only with animal...
