How to Ask for Something

I always encourage my clients to ask for what they want.   People love to give.  They want to say yes. (It's easier than saying no.) Remember this… 1. If you are asking someone for something that will take their time, money or energy consider what's in it for them.  Is it a win-win or […]

Gossip is Good

It Sucks-Let it go…

Have you ever spent such a long time working on something that you can't let it go? Even when you  know it sucks? A friend you've had for 10 years…but let's be honest, you guys have nothing in common anymore. A job that you've been at too long? A lover that has lost the love […]

It’s Been 10 Years Since I Hated My Body

Part of the retreat was a rope’s course designed to bring up our frustrations and our fears. […]

Cringe-Worthy or Regrettable Action

Sometimes you are going to do something that, well, mortifies you.   I know I do.  Just did it the other day.  I found myself obsessing about it.  Argued with the past 10 times and lost each time.  So here is what I did as my own self work to set me free….and what you […]


One of my clients gave me a gift at our retreat. It was a professional drawing with a poem. Beautiful. It said:   I used to wait for a sign, she said,  before I did anything.  Then one night I had a dream and an angel in black tights came to me and said, You […]
