You CAN Breathe: How To Have A Panic Attack

I have a client that had a super amazing first session with me. She has a LOT going on, and it’s big stuff. All at the same time. And there’s a lot from her past as well. And as I’ll write about sometime in the future, the present heals the past. So things come up now that [more…]

My Mom Heard From Girl She Helped 60 Years Ago!

Happy Mother’s Day, folks! This is a super cool story about an email my mom recently got out of the blue, like really out of the blue. It was from one of her classmates in eighth grade. Sixty years ago… The girl had been new to town and of course new to that school, and my mom was [more…]

Those Constant, Background Gumbo Ingredients

Not too long ago, we talked about my client that felt like she had a thousand things wrong with her life, when there were only three. And then we talked about this more generally, using the analogy of a gumbo to describe the ingredients contributing to how we feel at any given moment. Because often there’s more [more…]

Client Kicking Ass at Bipolar!

We recently used the analogy of the swinging pendulum to describe what happens sometimes when we shift and make changes, so today let’s talk about a different kind of swing. You see, I have a client that I’m so proud of. She’s in her thirties, and she’s been dealing with the major ups and downs of bipolar disorder [more…]

The Pendulum

Howdy, folks! Man, I’ve been SO busy, seeing more clients in the last month or so than I ever have. And busy resting and playing after work and on weekends, so not much writing. I think you’re supposed to write a stockpile of posts and then send them out weekly or something. That sounds great, [more…]

My New Car Got Scratched!!

So I had a client that came in for the second time, and she’d really picked it up. So cool to see! It’s not like she’s floating around all the time with wizards and unicorns or anything like that, not yet anyway, but… she’s truly learning how to live in a human body on earth. She [more…]

Me: “You Are Not Depressed”

I’ve had the great pleasure recently of telling a few clients something like this: “I have something to tell you, so just relax and take it in. Are you ready? Okay, here we go… I don’t think you are depressed.” And then we laugh hysterically. These are people that have been labeled as having some sort of official [more…]

Another Client Blown Away By Psychic Medium…

Howdy folks! Nice to talk to you again. I’ve been a working man lately! But not really working on time management skills… I just signed up for a trial subscription to something called Simple Practice, so hopefully we can start to streamline things at work. “We” meaning “me”…  So it’s been busy, and the work is going really, really [more…]

Your Judgments Are Innocent! A One-Year Review

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, good people! Last year at this time, we wrote an awesome post about how most of us have all of these judgments all the time, nasty thoughts that just pop in our heads about ourselves and others, and just about anything else. Now, we can’t stop a thought from coming in; it’s [more…]

The Gumbo

Hello good folks. We learned a while ago that how we feel generally comes from our thinking. For example, if we’re having fearful thoughts, it would be normal for the body to feel afraid. The body is trying to get our attention, in fact, so that we’ll stop and take a look at what’s going [more…]

All anybody really wants is peace. The good news is that peace can be learned. I’m serious. This should be taught in middle school, but it’s not. So I’m teaching it now.
