This podcast isn’t working

No that's not a search term or a frustrated exclamation. It's the title of my first podcast. Yes, you read it here first - I am throwing caution and (more importantly) perfection to the wind and running wonkily through the fields of podcast land. What of this land? I do not know one jot dear [...]

Hopscotch moments

My daughter recently discovered the wonder of hopscotch. She watched with amazement as I sketched out the little boxes and numbers and then showed her how to jump from spot to spot. I hadn't meant for us to even be outside in the cold air but I felt practically suffocated by anxiety that day and [...]

Growing good stuff to eat: our Vegepod project

For our birthdays this year, my husband and I (with the help of family) invested in a raised garden bed called a Vegepod. It’s a modular, portable system that was featured on Shark Tank.

I wrote this post to answer the question "What's it like behind the closed door of a psychology session?" This is a trick question though!

There are limitless combinations of [...]

A few mindful moments

The breeze is heavenly today and the scorching sun is high above the umbrella I'm perched beneath. Just enough warmth is filtering through the canvas to gently wash over me. As the air moves, it softly shakes the shadow-casting plants and trees all around making pretty moving patterns across my arm and the little laminated [...]
