Communication, whether verbal or nonverbal, is one of the best ways to connect with those we care about on a deeper level. Unfortunately, poor communication patterns in relationships can create cracks, toxicity, or even bring an otherwise beautiful relationship to an end. Unfortunately, many engage in toxic communication patterns without even realizing it. Unhealthy communication in relationships can take many forms, such as making assumptions about what the other person is thinking, attacking your partner’s character, or giving them the silent treatment as a form of punishment. It’s nearly im ..read more

For many, happiness ranks high on their list of life goals, and it’s no surprise ― we all strive to feel good about our lives. But defining happiness and understanding how to measure it can be complex tasks. This is where subjective well-being (SWB), a term coined by psychologists to cover both life satisfaction and happiness, comes into play. What is subjective well being? SWB refers to an individual’s overall sense of happiness, satisfaction, and contentment with their life. Beyond fleeting emotions, SWB represents a deep-seated sense of fulfillment that originates from within. This self-ref ..read more

I’ve been thinking about women for a while now. I’ve been a woman all my life. My coaching practice clientele is just over 50% women, and I’m now running several workshops, one of which is all women. So women are on my mind – and not just because it’s Women’s History Month. Being a woman used to be something of an obstacle for me. Something to overcome. I wanted people to know I could do things (like math) despite being a woman. I’d tolerate and endure, put up with all kinds of gendered comments at school and harassment in the workplace, and not discuss it because I understood that was ju ..read more

Three of my four kids are in elementary school. I enjoyed that phase of life a lot, and as a curious (ok, nerdy) student who liked to do her work, it was a time in my life where I received a lot of praise. I loved that red pen, the hand drawn smiley faces, and the stickers. I liked my A plusses. I did the extra credit, and the teachers lapped me up. (I know it isn’t always that way.) So maybe you didn’t peak in elementary school like I did. What was your thing? Sports? Or style? Or tattoo art or skateboarding? My cousin who is a gifted auto mechanic used to take my roller skates apart and put ..read more

Unfulfilled emotional needs can be frustrating, especially if it’s a long-standing issue. They leave behind a sense of vague emptiness as if something is missing in your life ― a void.

Just about anyone can turn things around, regardless of their past experiences.

Whether they’re a veteran on the front lines or a civilian living through a traumatic event, people are faced with moral conflicts daily. As a result, they may find themselves dealing with moral injury. Syracuse University, a pioneer in the field and home to the Moral Injury Project, defines moral injury as damage to a person’s moral beliefs, values, or conscience. This happens when a person sees an action, performs an action, or fails to prevent an action that transgresses their moral foundations, breaking the personal ethical code they have. As a result, they are left with negative thoughts ..read more
