If there is anything I am learning to practice in a pandemic it is patience. For weeks I have been waiting to get my copy of Ruth King’s book, Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out. I was glad it was back-ordered.

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.

Sometimes I feel like I was a tree nymph in a different existence. Not that I know much about trees except that I love them. I love them like friends. My most peaceful moments as a child were wandering in the woods, building forts, climbing a grand weeping beech with its voluptuous growths. I could … [Read More...] about Calling on Kindred Spirits for Healing
