Challenging Our Health

I’m finding that Physical Therapy is one of the most significant advancements in medicine, at least for me. When I had a knee injury in college, the doctors told me to rest and stay off my leg for a month. Today, they’d want me to ice it for a few days, start doing some stretching and see a PT to start working out in 4 days. Recently I’ve had a little bout with some dizziness and balance issues. After ruling...

Do you WOO?

One interesting thing that happens to me at parties is that when people discover I am a psychologist, they want to share some professional or personal issue to get my insight. It is an occupational hazard, and it happened again this past weekend. After being introduced to a fellow by a mutual friend, our conversation eventually turned to his concerns about his son, who did not seem to be doing well in his sales job. He was capable enough except...

The Three Most Important Questions for a Rewarding Career

I’m working with more and more clients wanting to make or actually making a career change. Part of this rush to change is related to the Great Resignation (or perhaps Great Reshuffling.)

Everyone, it seems wants to find more  meaning in their life and their work...

The Dog Days

I’m seeing Facebook and LinkedIn posts from friends and colleagues who are off on vacations to the beach, Scandinavia, or Greece or maybe staycationing and heading off to the neighborhood pool. I love seeing your smiling faces, whether with the Acropolis in the background, writing your daughter’s name in the sand, or the look of excitement (or fear) as you begin your first parasailing adventure. Summer is the time for rejuvenation. We often use celebrations like New Year’s Day or...
