Everyone Wants a Break

Everyone Wants a Break

With the holidays and end of year upon us, everyone wants a break. We’re tired. 2017 was a difficult, intense year for many of us personally and as Americans, collectively as well.

New Year’s Resolution: Getting Along With My Parents

New Year’s Resolution: Getting Along With My Parents

Over the last month or so, a number of my clients have discussed with me the challenges of navigating a relationship with their parents. I suspect that the recent holiday season and current political climate have a little something to do with the surfacing of these relational struggles. I thought it would be helpful to write about developing relationships with our parents as adults and how to cope with the emotional obstacles along the way.

Sync Your Relationship - Pace

Sync Your Relationship - Pace

While there are many important factors that make up a successful relationship, none are as fundamental as the pace, rhythm, time perspective, and punctuality that you share. Thus, it is critical to “hear the beat” of your conflict in order to change it.

Should I Stay or Should I Go

Should I Stay or Should I Go

Imagine the following scenario: You are on the subway, headed to an important work meeting, and have no time to spare.  All is good until, one stop away from your destination, the train just sits there in the station -- doors open, engine idling. Then you hear the familiar announcement, “Ladies and Gentlemen: We are being held momentarily by the train’s dispatcher. Thank you for your patience.”  After a small eternity, you think to yourself indignantly, “Really?”

Back seat driver!

Back seat driver!

Holidays are supposed to be fun, right? Getting away from it all, to discover a new locale is said to broaden our mind.  When you get out of New York City, however, you sometimes find yourself somewhere that necessitates the use of a car. Perhaps nowhere more so than the city of stars, Los Angeles, home to ‘carmageddon’, where residents spend an estimated 4 days of each year stuck in traffic, with no real effective alternative for getting around.
