Every obstacle, experience, and transition we encounter brings opportunity for joy, growth, meaning, and connection. Therapy provides support to reflect on where you have been, where you are now, and where you want to be. Louis area and I have a passion for t

The Dangers of Wanting to Finish a Task 01/31/2022

The Dangers of Wanting to Finish a Task

As we near the end of January, the month notorious for “resolutions” take a look at this Interesting article about how we pursue our tasks and goals. It’s a good reminder that integration and moderation is key to fulfillment!

The Dangers of Wanting to Finish a Task The human desire to finish what you started can have dangerous consequences.


On the stroke of midnight tonight, you can resolve to be better, if you like…
to be fitter,
to be healthier,
to work harder.

On the stroke of midnight tonight,
you can resolve to become a whole new you,
if you so choose.

Or, you can take a moment to acknowledge what you already are.
All that you already are.
Because it’s a lot.
You’re a lot.

And you deserve to be seen.

On the stroke of midnight tonight perhaps you could congratulate yourself, for coping.
For breaking, again,
and for rebuilding, again.

For catching the stones life has thrown at you,
and for using them to build your castle that little bit higher.

You have endured my friend.

And I don’t see the need to resolve to become a whole new you,
when you are already so very much indeed.

Happy new year.

You made it.

Perfectionistic tendencies are associated with reduced cognitive flexibility and heightened emotional suppression

Striving to be better is great, but even too much of a “good thing” can be harmful and distressing. Be gracious of all of you, including your faults and mistakes, that is what helps us learn and grow!

Excited to announce that I will be moving to in-person sessions this summer at a new office location! Therapy works. And for some, therapy works best in person. So I am really happy to be able to offer more options to my clients to meet their needs. More information to come!


I am excited to offer in-home counseling for folks in Long-Term Care Communities. The impact of Covid is still resonating and creating stress and anxiety. Addressing the continued mental health strain on older adults is necessary!


Weekend inspiration: we all have challenges. Sometimes it is easy to think that others “have it all together” and we feel like we may not. But don’t doubt what you are capable of, it may not always seems like a lot to you, but It is often more than you realize!

Too often we equate self care with bubble baths and pampering. While those are great, there is so much more to it than that. Giving yourself time to be creative, taking a break from checking work emails on the weekend, spending time with a good friend, going for a hike in the woods, eating a healthy breakfast all count, too. Taking the time to reflect on all parts of selves and nurture the areas that need more attention is the true nature of self care.


Weekend inspiration: Honor who you were, all you’ve gone through, and who you will become! Keep evolving!

Healthy ways to handle life’s stressors

We all have stress and sometimes it gets to be more than we can handle alone. If you need support, reach out, talk to someone, get help. You can get through this!

It is so important to see each other and our clients as whole persons, with experiences, strengths, and knowledge from their own lives. That’s how we find empathy. Even more true for us to remember of our folks with dementia

Thank you to Joanne, who has shared her lovely poem 'The Depths of Me' with us. 💙

Joanne is a care assistant, working with people with dementia. She said, 'I wondered, if I was in their position, what I would want the person caring for me to think about. Person-centred care has always been at the forefront of my mind.'

Happy International Woman’sDay! To the amazing women who rise to challenges everyday and show the strength we posses! Here’s to acknowledging that in ourselves and each other!


As we are reflecting on a full year of life during a pandemic this month, many are mourning a loss as and many are mourning loses of other kinds as well. It is so important, though, to remember that spring is a rebirth, a new beginning. What do you want this coming year to look like for you knowing what you have been through the past 365 days? Knowing that you’ve made it to this point, how will you use your experiences to grow as we begin again?


We don’t always see our own strength, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t there.


So true!
