The shimmering plastic threads hung in full length of the doorway to my home office, the one room I have spent far too much time in while a pandemic looms far and wide.

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.

I could … [Read More...] about Calling on Kindred Spirits for Healing

Sheltering in place has been an interesting experience with my college daughters at home. One evening my youngest suggested we watch the movie Contagion as if we were embarking on some great new adventure as a family. No thanks, I said. (Maybe it was a stressful day. My inner voice was … [Read More...] about Sheltering in Place with Compassion
