    Set For Life, Breathe

    Posted on January 23, 2016 by in Anxiety, Depression, grief and loss, Psychotherapist Rockville MD

    Set For Life, Breathe   The last few weeks I’ve written on the theme, ‘if you can relax in any position, you will be set for life.” Last week I wrote about gathering supports. Once supports are in place, just breathe. Many of us on the East Coast did this in real time this past […]

    Do You Pay Regular Visits To Yourself?

    Posted on October 18, 2015 by in Anxiety, Depression, grief and loss, Psychotherapist Rockville MD

    Do You Pay Regular Visits To Yourself? My favorite poet, Rumi, asks this question, followed by “Start Now.” Paying regular visits to yourself means you learn to be with your mind, body, and spirit, just as you are. Over time, you learn to tolerate all that comes up when you do this courageous act of […]

    Posted on June 1, 2015 by in Depression, grief and loss, Psychotherapist Rockville MD
