We all have challenging moments in life that can sometimes bring us to our knees in writhe. Sometimes we dread having to make those difficult decisions when we are faced with challenging obstacles.
When you are stressed out, overwhelmed, being triggered by someone or something, having to make a difficult decisions, etc…it can feel scary, distressing, frustrating, irritating, or saddening. Obstacles were meant to be placed in our lives as a source of opportunity for self realization. I am sure you have heard the phrase “when opportunity knocks, answer” BUT what if that opportunity knocking at our door was something that we didn’t want? What if that opportunity was scary? What if that opportunity felt uncomfortable? We may sometimes only want opportunity when it is good, non-challenging, easy, and comforting. It is easier to answer the door when the opportunity doesn’t ruffle our britches!
How can we take challenges, obstacles, and roadblocks and begin to...
L'Wren Scott, a beautiful person with enormous talent dies at age 49, as the result of an apparent suicide, leaving friends, family and her significant other to mourn her loss . It didn’t have to end this way.
If you would like to know about a simple fact of life, that would have saved her and can save countless others in the future, please read on.
While reading about her ultra successful life, in the world of fashion design, and her long-term relationship with a man she adored and spoke of as her ideal partner, Mick Jagger -- something jumped out at me. The Daily Beast had quoted her in 2009, speaking of her designs, as saying: “It’s fun to see the ideas in your head spring to life, because it all starts in your mind.”
That is so true, but what she hadn’t realized was that just because something is in our mind, doesn’t mean that it has to spring to life. We have free will to decide which thoughts we will move forward with and which to let fade a...

As a psychotherapist, I often talk with people who have sacrificed self-care in lieu of other activities, usually work related. Many of them have either abandoned a spiritual practice or never had one. In these instances, part of my work is encouraging the development of such a practice.
It seems now—more than ever—people struggle to find meaning and significance in their lives. Buddhist teacher and psychotherapist Jack Kornfield (2001) said, “We live in disordered times, complicated, distracted, and demanding . . . Whether in prayer or meditation, in visualization, fasting, or song, we need to step out of our usual roles, out of the busy days on automatic pilot” (p. 26).
Just as there are different reasons for fasting, there are several definitions. Psychiatrist Len Sperry (2001) said fasting is used “as a means of weight loss, detoxification of the body for medical purposes, or as a spiritual practice. Done as a spiritual practice, fasting is defined ...
Fasting is a practice that almost all eating disorders sufferers participate in, using it to manage weight and gain a feeling of control. The anorectic tends to have the most extreme fasting practices, whereas the bulimic usually fasts for shorter periods. Fasting among binge eaters and food addicts is sporadic, with some individuals using it more than others.
The primary treatment for eating disorders is counseling and psychotherapy. For a psychotherapist treating someone with an eating disorder, having a thorough understanding of the practice of fasting could be a useful standard of care. Without this knowledge, it becomes more difficult to decipher the patient’s motivations and defense mechanisms pertaining to fasting. For the anorectic who has abused fasting to the brink of death, examining her bond with fasting in psychotherapy—much in the same way an alcoholic would with alcohol—could play an important role in recovery.
For patients who have not abused the pra...
Let's be honest, we therapists and health providers of all kinds are not above getting stuck in the same kinds of work ruts our clients get into. We start out with clarity and our best intention not to say yes to certain presenting problems or to take insurance that hardly pays or work longer hours to compensate.
After a while the "nos" give way to "yeses" and before too long we are in a practice rut! We enjoy aspects of private practice and some of our clients, but on average, we aren't doing what we went through graduate training to do. We've lost our passion and focus and now are dependent on the income.
I am a psychologist, published writer, meditation teacher and coach helping health practitioners and therapists who want to change their practice into one of their choice: One that gives them a meaningful sense of accomplishment, distinction among peers and highly effective service which is not at the expense of their own joy and long-held dreams for their career.
