An Online Psychiatrist Is a Real Thing!


Our lives are becoming more digital and intertwined with computers. We type all of our messages: we email instead of writing letters, we text rather than talk. It can seem that we are losing that human connection! But we can also be connected through computers and tech. I have people on Instagram that understand my daily struggle with anxiety or…

Is Marriage Counseling Right For Us?


My parents are divorced. Their marriage fell apart slowly, over years and years, and I wonder if they asked, “Is marriage counseling right for us?” They were together until I was in my twenties, so it happened when I was an adult myself, but it was still hard on the family. Growing up, my parents fought a lot. It was…

Falling in Love with Crow’s Feet


Remember being a little kid, say 7 or 8, and declaring, “When I’m an old person of 20 years old with crow’s feet, I’m gonna fall in love, live in a big house, and invent flying cars!” Old person, at 20? I’m laughing so hard at my childhood self right now. I did picture something right- I did start to…

Why You Should Wear Sunscreen (Even On Cloudy Days)


I’m militant about people wearing sunscreen.  I remember learning about our depleting ozone layer in school and being horrified- and it’s worse now! People have a lot of excuses to not wear sunscreen but I really, really, really want people to change their minds. The difference between UVA and UVB rays confuses people- including myself, so I looked it up.…

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. But, when we get home, real life obligations crowd in. The feel of the never-ending weekend begins to fade. We become stressed, overworked and under-slept. But what if we could get that weekend…

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…

Choosing Mental Help That Is Right For You: Therapist or Psychologist?


Whether it’s because of a tragedy or just to help you get through your day, I strongly believe that no one should be ashamed of seeking mental health help. Therapists and psychologists can be invaluable to your well-being. Your pain is your pain. As Christine says in the movie, Lady Bird: “Different things can be sad….it’s not all war!” If…

Why I’ve Had to Give Up Coffee


Coffee. That single word can bring up so many memories- maybe of parents or grandparents drinking it, maybe of a special coffee date or maybe as recent as this morning when you were brewing your first cup. I know that my first thought when my alarm goes off is,”I can’t wait to have my coffee”. Coffee is more than a…

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…
