I now feel a deeper sense of compassion for myself along with more gentle acceptance when I’m facing conflict and anger.

I’m far less reactive than I used to be, and see more choices in each moment than before.

How To Increase Your Self-Love: 7 Ways to Get Grounded in Your Goodness

Self-love is such a fundamental aspect of our well-being, but what does it actually entail? If you’re anything like me, you might find yourself prioritizing others’ needs, juggling multiple responsibilities, and tuning into everyone else’s feelings and preferences.

How Can I Get My Partner Into Therapy?

How Can I Get My Partner Into Therapy?

In this week’s podcast, a spouse is wondering how to recruit her partner into therapy.

Making Peace with Pain

Making Peace with Pain

I had a realization this week that although a relationship can be painful, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s unsafe.

“The longer I live, the more deeply I learn that love — whether we call it friendship or family or romance — is the work of mirroring and magnifying each others’ light.”

-James Baldwin
