What Does Support Look Like For You?

The Mood Ladies have a new routine starting this month. Well, they’ve actually had this routine for over a year – in the online program that they run (see a version here). Now they decided it was time to make it more public. That means each month has a theme and we’ll be exploring the …

How Nourished Are You?

What feeds me – what nourishes me? This is an excellent question to have in your toolbox. So often, we forget to ask ourselves this question.

Self-Full: The New Selfish

A first-time client, let’s call her Betty, was telling me about where she was right now in her life. She was exhausted and I could see this in her eyes and hear it in her voice. Her light-hearted spirit was anything but light. There was a heaviness around her that didn’t really feel like her. …
