A Reiki Story

Posted on Nov 10, 16 in Testimonial

Earlier this fall I received my Reiki III/Master certification.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with Reiki, it’s an effective form of energy work that helps release tension and stress in the body, and can even support physical, mental and emotional healing.  Reiki is not massage, but because treatment creates such deep relaxation, I […]

“What You Resist, Persists.” – Carl Jung

Posted on Mar 11, 16 in Wellness

This picture of me is about as good as it gets lately … un-styled hair, no make-up, and old sweats.  Almost four weeks ago I had “girl surgery,” and let’s just say recovery has been quite interesting.  Although I wasn’t looking forward to this procedure, my focus remained on how much it was going to […]

Trust the Journey

Posted on Jul 22, 15 in General

It was only a few short weeks ago that I spent a fun week at Disney World with my family, and here I am, just returning from another vacation. The truth is that although the getaway to Florida with my family was enjoyable, it was far from relaxing. As a matter of fact, our trips […]

Confessions from the Coach

Posted on Feb 2, 15 in Wellness

As someone people trust to help them with their health challenges, it has always been important to me that I remain open and honest with them as well.  I have never hidden the fact that I don’t prescribe to any particular food regimen, I do enjoy what many people would consider unhealthy foods in moderation, […]

My 34-Day Walking Meditation: Half-Way There!

Posted on Oct 29, 14 in Wellness

I’ve been doing my daily walking meditation for 17 days now, so here’s an update on how it’s going: On the very first day, I realized I need to get out of the house earlier so I won’t be tempted to chat with friends and neighbors who are also out for their morning walks.  After […]

My 34-Day Walking Meditation

Posted on Oct 16, 14 in Wellness

As I read “Walking Home” by Sonia Choquette, I couldn’t help but be inspired by her story of walking the Camino de Santiago, an 800-kilometer pilgrimage that has been traveled by people of many faiths for over a thousand years.  I found myself not only relating to Sonia as a person, but also to the […]

Learn to Heal Yourself

Posted on Jun 24, 14 in Wellness

As I read the below meditation from Melody Beattie’s “Journey to the Heart,” I couldn’t help but think of how much her words relate to people with food and body image challenges.  On one hand, we think happiness will only be achieved once we reach a certain weight, size, etc.  On the other hand, however, […]

Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho … It’s Off to the Farm We Go!

Posted on Jun 6, 14 in Nutrition

Recently I was reminiscing with my family about how much I loved Saturday mornings as a child.  Yes, my day would start with cartoons, and if I woke up early enough, my all-time favorite show – Chief Halftown!  However, my best memories are what happened after getting in some TV time. My mother would load […]

I just read this article by Bob Proctor, and thought “what a great idea!”  So many people don’t follow through with their New Year’s Resolutions because they don’t plan ahead.  To truly succeed, in addition to getting clear on what you really want, you need to establish action goals to support your resolutions.  And, don’t […]

Kale Chips

Posted on Jun 18, 13 in Recipes

I have to be honest, I tried this Kale Chips recipe not knowing what kind of reaction I was going to get from my family.  Much to my surprise and delight, the chips never even made it to a storage container!  They loved these crispy, crunchy, and best of all … HEALTHY … treats! Kale […]
