Blame and Responsibility

Blame and Responsibility

Blame is an incredibly easy and effortless tactic to use when feeling defensive. If you don’t hold yourself accountable for the consequences of your ways of behaving, thinking, and feeling, you get to continue living life thinking you don’t have any flaws or areas for improvement.

Taking Control of Satisfying Your Needs

Every Valentine’s Day, we’re flooded with images of seemingly happy couples.

Wintertime Sadness

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.
