Is there any meaning in depression?

What’s something that hurts too much to think about? Maybe it’s a strained relationship with a family member a loss of someone you love a loved one who’s sick Maybe it’s a toxic job you know you’ve settled for a toxic relationship you know you’ve settled for Maybe it’s your painful past, or maybe all of the above. For me, for instance, in the last year or so, it’s been the reality that getting married and having kids might not happen for me. It might! But it also might not. The “might not” has been at the forefront and has

what do i wanna do with this day?

At 23 I quit my first (and pretty much only) full time job as an adult. I started teaching yoga but had hours and hours of open time. And to be honest, I had no clue what to do with it. I got lazy. And bored. And sometimes depressed. Why? Cuz I’d never had to access the part of me that knows what I want to do (as is typical in high school, college, and most workplaces, other people made those decisions for me). That part of me needed time to wake up. Almost 10 years later, that part of

body centered coaching sessions

Starting this month (June 2018), I’ll be offering private, body-centered coaching sessions out of my home in the North End of Boston. Body-centered sessions will include the integration of gentle movement and breath work into a traditional coaching/talk therapy approach. Why the integration? Couple reasons: Talk therapy and coaching are wonderful vehicles to healing BUT often miss out on the direct and very critical communication coming from our bodies. For instance, the way your stomach starts to get queasy every time you’re at a certain kind of social event or the way your chronic headaches get even more intense when

Got a purpose?

I was taught to tell you it would be simple. I was taught that you’d hire me if I offered “easy button” solutions to your problems. But the truth is none of it’s EASY. Not the meal prep. Not meditation. Not the elusive and ever trendy morning routine. It’s not EASY to say “no” to bread sugar and tequila. Or to admit to wanting more than Empty sex A superficial social life And a soul-sucking 9-5. None of these choices are easy. They haven’t been for me and they won’t be for you. In fact, choices like these lead to

Don’t take my loneliness away

I’ve been feelin’ it on and off lately. So, I wasn’t surprised that even with one of my best friends, Christmas tunes on repeat, and homemade paleo marshmallows in the making, my chest started tightening. And this time, I knew tears were coming. “I think I just need a hug,” I finally managed to tell her. So she hugged me. And I hadn’t realized how much I missed being held.  It’s December, which means I could share all the ways I’ve been blessed and all I’m grateful for (I’ve got my list!)… or I could share something that gets a little less airtime. So here goes nothin’.

What “wandering” might teach you

I don’t know how many hours I spent searching for grad programs, scanning websites and thinking, “Oh maybe I could study English… No? Nah. Or maybe anthropology? Wait, do I wanna be an anthropologist or do I just want to travel? Oh look at this, a women’s studies program in South Africa… that would be cool, right?” Yea cool for sure, but I was TOTALLY forcing it. So much so that I applied to two completely different programs, got accepted, deferred, and then just never showed up to my first class. I SO wanted to be in grad school! Or
