Do you work with your beloved? Can you separate your work relationship, romantic relationship, and what lies in between?

Esther Perel thinks so.

In her new podcast, "How's Work?", the queen of relationship therapy dives deep into what we take for granted, what we illuminate when stuff gets hard, and how to sift through challenges. As Perel states, we get stuck in our roles.

What is your identity at home? What is your identity at work? Do you and your partner allow each other to shift positions as you move through those spaces together, or are you both stuck in a "straight jacket"? AKA, are you stuck in being the "creative" at home AND at work (or whatever roles you both serve in different places)?

We can't get enough of this podcast and the invaluable information Perel shares on these topics.

Each person has a desire to love and be loved—to know their presence in the world has value and makes a difference to someone. Nicole is inspired by the courage taken by those who seek support to better themselves. She strives to create a welcoming space where you can experience your authentic identity as someone loved and good. Nicole appreciates that each person has their own story and that every story embodies some degree of suffering, pain, and shame—she sees her role as a therapist as helping you to heal from your wounds so that you can move forward with a greater sense of self.

Nicole has advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and basic training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS); she is actively involved in professional associations, has held workshops at psychological conferences, and is published on working with couples where there are spiritual considerations. For nearly a decade, she was a high school guidance counselor. Nicole has a Master in Liberal Arts from St. John’s College (MD) and a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary.

The Marriage Lesson That I Learned Too Late

Please read this article from a withdrawers perspective. After you read it share your thoughts! I would love to hear what you think...

"Every couple has their own unique version of The Same Fight. It could be any number of things. Throwing laundry on the floor. Tracking mud through the house right after your partner cleaned up. It doesn’t matter what the actual thing is. For us, it was dishes by the sink."

The Marriage Lesson That I Learned Too Late The existence of love, trust, respect, and safety in a relationship is often dependent on moments you might write off as petty disagreements.

It's been a tough two years — that really isn't a secret nor a surprise. However, it's been even tougher on our children. We've seen an insurmountable rise in adolescent anxiety in our offices. They've missed out on life events they've looked forward to their whole lives (prom, football games, sweet 16 birthday parties), social time with their friends (figuring out who they are in society), and have spent more time on screens than ever before (loneliness, isolation).

It's easy to forget how important these things are as adults. To young people, this is their whole lives and then some.

If you have a teen suffering from depression, anxiety, or panic attacks, we urge you to be patient and compassionate. Hold space for their feelings and validate their emotions. Let them know that they are safe to explore how they feel and that this situation is only temporary. Help them to lean into what they feel. Make it okay.

We work with ages 12 and up. Please reach out to us and schedule an appointment if you think your teen needs help and wants to talk. We're here for your family!

Yearly, millions participate by staying silent for the duration of their day, representing the silencing of LGBTQIA+ students.

Our LGBTQIA+ youth are experiencing a lot of silencing right now. Even in 2022, laws are being passed to prevent LGBTQIA+ education in schools. Trans adolescents face discrimination at home, in schools, in sports, and in other organizations. This reality breaks our hearts and we take it very seriously in our practice.

Hold a moment of silence for our LGBTQIA+ youth today— not to remember them in memoriam, but to take a step back and let their light shine. LGBTQIA+ youths are our children and our future, just the same as heterosexual adolescents. LGBTQIA+ students deserve recognition, to be appreciated and acknowledged, and to thrive just like anyone else.

Today is for them.

It might sound cheesy or non-spontaneous to "schedule" time with your partner, but when we live such busy lives, it can be essential to keeping your relationship alive. When you make time to be together, stick to it. And remember! Intimacy isn't specifically about sex. Intimacy is the closeness between you and your partner, like cuddling, heart-to-heart conversations, and being vulnerable about your feelings.

Did you know that CDC statistics revealed that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is 4.3 times more prevalent in boys than it is in girls? This is because girls “often go undiagnosed because they don’t fit autism stereotypes and they mask symptoms better than boys do,” according to the Child Mind Institute.

The best way to observe World Autism Day is to familiarize yourself with the characteristics of people with this condition. Do your research and learn more to increase your understanding. And finally, do everything you can to promote kindness.

Opinion | Grief is love, not a mental disorder 04/02/2022

Opinion | Grief is love, not a mental disorder

Opinion | Grief is love, not a mental disorder The American Psychiatric Association’s categorization of “prolonged” grief as a disorder pathologizes a normal, necessary process.

Chances are that you know someone with Bipolar Disorder and you're not even aware of it.

Bipolar Disorder is a mental illness that causes severe mood swings. A person with Bipolar Disorder might experience extreme emotional highs (mania or hypomania) or low lows, like depression. The mood swings can disrupt everything in a person's life, like:

~ sleep
~ energy
~ emotional well-being
~ critical thinking
~ the ability to carry out daily tasks

For some, living with Bipolar Disorder can feel scary, alienating, and lonely.

While medication is often the first line of treatment for bipolar disorder, psychological therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, family-focused therapy, and interpersonal therapy have been shown to help reduce symptoms and the risk of future episodes.

There are many, many people living with Bipolar Disorder who are also happy and thriving.

Let's normalize talking about it and support those who live with it!
