Your Majesty

Wayne Dyer, self-help author and motivational speaker, once said that there were two types of people in this world — ducks or eagles.  Ducks are content to sit on a pond and calmly paddle in the water, surrounded by other ducks, not really going very far.  Eagles, on the other hand, are meant to soar […]

You ARE What You Tell Yourself

If I was to have you stand up and put one arm out to the side and have you repeat “I’m weak, I’m weak, I’m weak,” I could easily push that arm down.  But if I had you put it back out and say “I’m strong, I’m strong, I’m strong,” your arm would naturally give […]

Top 5 Books I Read in 2013

Well, 2013 is now behind us and in reflecting on how things went for New Leaf Counseling, I can say that it was a year of “settling” or I guess I could even say “marinating.”  My normal inclination is to continuously grow, grow, grow — but this year seemed to take on more of a […]

I know it sounds oversimplified, but if you want to be happy and you’re not, then you need to make the effort to change.Period.No one’s going to do it for you and no one is going to come in with a magic wand and make things all better.  So, it’s up to YOU.  YOU are […]

Let Go Or Be Dragged

One of the greatest things I learned while reading about Buddhism was the concept of detaching from expectations that things be different.  It sounds simple enough, but it’s one of the hardest things we have to learn in our lifetime.  It means that we have to let go of our need to be right, or […]

Motivation Education

It’s that time of year again when people are starting to look at the new year and decide what goals they want to achieve.  Last year, my big goal was to start my private practice, New Leaf Counseling, and I’m very proud that I was able to accomplish that one.  The goals for losing 15 […]

Being Your Own Delicious

I recently hired a business coach to help me become better focused on how to run the best counseling practice  I could.  There’s a lot that goes into it, of course — the logistics of overhead costs, being compliant with policies and procedures from the counseling board, keeping files up to date and organized, and […]

The Discipline of Being Amazing

No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.   Harry Emerson Fosdick The Summer Olympics have now come and gone…each athlete boarding […]

Tracing It Back to the Roots

I registered to be on the Psychology Today directory yesterday, wanting to solicit more clients for my practice, which has seemed to be dwindling (for all the office’s therapists) over the past few months.  In my profile, I was asked to provide a “personal statement”, which I found to be somewhat challenging.  How does a […]
