Counseling And Body Dysmorphic Disorder


I have struggled with eating disorders on and off for a long time. Even today, I’m aware that restrictive diets or plans could trigger old habits. I still find it hard to admit I had a problem. It’s very hard for me to talk about, even today. I was treated with body dysmorphic disorder but it took a long time…

How To Keep Your Weekend Going All Week


Remember the feel of vacation? It’s a never-ending weekend!  Remember the freedom and ease that follows every decision? I want that sensation to last for us forever.

Keeping it Together


I have a confession to make- since vacation I have felt overwhelmed. I know I owe you vacation stories, and I promise they’re on their way, but right now I want to talk about “real life”. It’s hard for me to admit I am just keeping it together and that I may have a bit too much going on. I…

I Love the Idea of Online Therapy.


You know what I love? The idea of taking care of yourself. The idea of loving yourself, body and soul. Sometimes the soul needs a helping hand and sometimes that helping hand is online therapy. I haven’t tried online therapy myself, yet, but the idea fills me with calm. I have, however, been on-again, off-again with therapy and counseling since…

Surviving the Introvert Hangover.


I feel a little jangly today. My stomach feels off, probably from all the sugar in the apple crisp last night (worth it!), or maybe all the socializing, and my muscles are sore from working out. We had a busy weekend and now I feel “hungover” of sorts. I get like this after a big weekend. (#introvertproblems) Except for my…

My Daughter’s Confidence.


My daughter is amazing. She is smart, fiery, caring and forward-thinking. She is a champion of causes and a voracious reader. She can be opinionated and is quick to anger, but those propel her forward instead of letting her give up. A professional once told us she is, “Highly attuned, highly sensitive and impulsive” and was quick to point out…

Survival Mode


Remember the Wizard of Oz? It is one of my son’s favourite movies. You know when Dorothy is trying to figure herself out and she gets so stressed out that she dreams of Oz? Yeah, that’s my life in a nutshell right now. I’ve been so stressed that I am in survival mode. I just go from one obligation to…

5 Ways I Fight Anxiety & Depression


This year has been a lot. That’s the best way I can describe it- just a lot going on. It has been more frantic and busy and emotional than other years so, of course, my anxiety and depression have been higher than other years. Fortunately, I don’t rely on meds as I did in my teens and my early twenties,…
