Tools for Managing COVID-19 Anxiety for You and Your Family

Reading Time: 9 minutes

Fear. Worry. Anxiety. I know them all intimately. I have years of experience healing through anxiety. And as a mom I now hold my kiddo’s hands as they walk through their own flavors of anxiety.

Anxiety is high in our collective consciousness. Even though I’m not feeling overwhelmed by it myself, I can still sense physiological changes in my body. The concern I feel for the vulnerable among us weighs on my heart. I also feel a bit confused and disoriented as we orient to a new, albeit temporary, normal (I’m suddenly trying on the homeschooling that I’ve wondered about). Everyone’s experience looks and feels a bit different, and still, we’re […]

Navigating Transitions through Self-Awareness and Mindful Practice

Reading Time: 15 minutes

*This post provides a tool for you to use at another time, hence the longer than normal reading time!

Transitions are ubiquitous. They’re not only big, life-altering events, but they’re also daily occurrences. If you’ve shared your day with a child, she’s likely made you aware of all the transitions that are happening in her day. Shifting from playtime to mealtime, sleeping to waking, or school to home can ignite a variety of emotions. Adults make similar transitions throughout the day from sleeping to waking, work to home, or home to work, too. It’s understandably hard for kids and adults to switch gears—we are creatures of habit, […]

Coaching & Healing: What I Do and What I Don’t Do

Reading Time: 11 minutes

My husband trades energy. I remember feeling confused and intrigued when I first learned about his job. I found it difficult to grasp the idea of buying and selling things that don’t actually exist, especially because I’d immersed myself in the realm of health psychology, not economics or finance. He explained it to me in English, of course, but to me the language of his work was a foreign language that I struggled to comprehend.

I think this happens with my work sometimes. When I talk to people who don’t have experience with coaching and healing, the language I use to describe it may, indeed, feel like a foreign language. I […]

On Cultivating Joy

Reading Time: 7 minutes

We’re right in the middle of the holiday season, and I know there’s so much happening for all of us. In addition to the fullness of the holidays, I’m in the midst of new homeopathic cases and follow-ups, and I’m writing a lot, both of which I love. But all of this calls for a lot of my time. The list of to-do’s is long, of course, and I’m noticing that even the things that bring me joy are feeling like another thing on the to-do list, because there’s a bit too much. So, something’s gotta give—I’m in the business of cultivating joy and healing, not […]

How I Heal

Reading Time: 8 minutes

If you read Where It All Began, you may see, as I do, that the good and the hard things in my life have been delivering me to this work for myself and others. I took what initially felt like a few detours along the way, and I stumbled (and righted myself) too many times to count. But, in doing so, I’m learning to strengthen my wholeness and embrace myself as my own healer. And, I’m learning how I can serve others on their own healing journeys as well.

Healing is just that – a continuous, non-linear journey. I’ll admit that when I received my Lyme diagnosis in 2014, after […]
