Black Lives Matter

To all of my clients, colleagues, friends and family: I officially support the Black Lives Matter movement. I am anti-racist and I believe the stories of discrimination I hear from my non-white friends.
White voices have power. I am asking my white friends to join me in reacting against racism in all of its forms. Ask your friend not to use that word, voice your disagreement when family speaks ill of any discriminated group, call yourself out when you notice your own prejudice. And, most of all, listen. Ask questions, listen, and encourage others to listen to the voices of discriminated people. Believe them.
All lives can’t matter until Black Lives Matter

Emotion and Fear

Emotions only ever occur in the present moment. The difference between choosing to be present and choosing to feel is just a matter of vocabulary. What is blocking you from being present to the moment? From feeling your feelings? Fear.

The awkwardness of stepping into emotion never seems to decrease or go away. Whether you consider yourself an emotionally mature person or not, it’s always risky to choose to feel. Fear is the great barrier between us and ourselves. Fear keeps us in our needless, wantless, expressionless, identity-less prisons.

The only thing fear is good for is for facing.

If we want to be free, we must actively refuse to submit to fear – while at the same time allowing ourselves to feel it – while at the same time facing it! It sucks, but then it sooooo doesn’t.
My we all today find the courage to feel.

I have the best clients in the world!

No seriously – they are awesome. You should meet them, because they’re the best.

Who Will You Be Today?

In the movie, The Matrix, Neo and his companions appear dressed in dark long coats and intimidating black-on-black outfits with sunglasses they wear indoors. They call this their “mental projection.” In other words, the Matrix creates an image that directly reflects the way individuals perceive themselves. And, for the hero, Neo, this changes!

I wonder if this could work in the real world? Want to be taken seriously? Start taking yourself seriously and see what happens!

Now offering EMDR services!

EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a counseling approach built around the brain’s built-in capacity for healing. By activating this system, the brain is able to resolve almost any internal conflict. If you are struggling with an undesirable emotion or behavior, odds are EMDR is right for you.

The Knowledge of Good and Evil

That’s what it was called: The Knowledge of Good and Evil. Not the judgment of good and evil.

So then why are we spending so much time and energy judging? Was there another tree I don’t know about?

Adam and Eve started off judging themselves. So, over the next few days, try noticing the ways you judge yourself. Then ask yourself this question: "What if I’m wrong about me?"

Adam is very personable and really takes the time to get to know you and your goals. He constantly reminds
