Sometimes it takes effort to remember the goodness in humanity. Waking up to the terrible news about the Las Vegas massacre was difficult. My husband delivered the news in the kitchen. Instinctively I emitted one of those gut-wrenching heaves with a hand to the mouth, Noooooo. Then a pause. Not … [Read More...] about In Dark Times Look for the Helpers
Kind Mind. Open Heart. Extraordinary Life.
Would you believe that there’s one thing that has the power to change ourselves and the world around us? Kindness.
It’s not a naive notion. It’s backed by research and neuroscience. By living with a focus on ways to be more kind, we heal ourselves, strengthen our kindness instinct, and create ripples around us that have the power to change the lives of others and the world.
I am a clinical psychologist and researcher by trade; I am a kindness warrior and agent of change by mission.
I believe kindness is the cure for so much of what ails us. Whether it’s managing life’s day-to-day demands or wrestling the inner critic that prevents us all from becoming our best selves, my work is centered in delivering simple, yet life changing ways to increase kindness, mindfulness, and self-compassion.
I work with companies and organizations to create ideal roadmaps for arriving at a more empathic, engaged and inspired environment.
For individuals or groups I pinpoint paths to self-healing and relationship rebuilding in the quest for true contentment through coaching and counseling.
I deliver a life-transforming , heart-changing call to kindness, that when put into action, has the power to exceed our communities, boundaries and our wildest dreams.

Hearing the … [Read More...] about After The Storm A Kinder Tomorrow
It was a warm Sunday afternoon in April. We were on our way home from New York City, which is a good four hours away. The youngest flower girl in our own wedding had just been married. She was just as beautiful the previous evening as she was 23 years ago. I felt like I was watching a blessed soul … [Read More...] about What Would Ben Franklin Say?
On the eve of the first day of summer I took a walk with my dog Leo. I’m not the dog walker in the family even though I should be (Leo was my idea), but I needed to get some head space and so I drove over to Turner’s Pond. Leo is getting on in years and twice around the pond seems too much for his … [Read More...] about On Turner’s Pond: A Walking Meditation
