Finding Comfort


“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” - Martin Luther King Jr. The times we are experiencing require bravery. We may be shaken to our core but can always choose to find comfort. [...]

Communicate Ambivalence


With the world starting to reopen, various opinions, approaches and risk tolerance levels abound. Vacillation is absolutely normal. Being uncertain about safety, reaching a breaking point, wanting to have more social interactions and feeling ambivalent can be daunting. I invite you to start by being honest with yourself and your immediate family about what [...]
