https://youtu.be/oF_2K6EyrkM At the end of 2021, I posted a couple of blogs about emotions. I’m in my 10th year of practice, and find that emotions are at the heart of almost every issue my clients have.

https://youtu.be/OezuUUdKNEg I had a client ask me the other day how I could stay so positive all the time (hint: satisfaction). Well, aside from walking the talk of what I teach, I took some time to think about that. I am not always in a positive upbeat mode. If so, I wouldn’t be human! However, […]

https://youtu.be/h30QYqRMvXA I was talking with a client about self esteem and wanted to share a perspective with you that came out of that conversation.

So today, I am going to talk about […]
