All humans are entitled to find their own path to health

I love the concept of autonomy, our ability to govern ourselves. It is a beautiful space to dance in, my right to be me. I never dug in on it as much as I have this past year. Many of the lines and roles that defined us had disappeared and it seemed the perfect space [...]

What is health actually?

What comes to mind when we think of health? My mentor, Gabrielle Fundaro, recently posed a question/discussion "The World Health Organization defines health as, "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." In that case...is anyone really healthy? It isn't enough to not be ill, [...]

How ready are you?

I was reading an article the other day about the stages of readiness. And a lightbulb went off.

Us women don't celebrate ourselves or our accomplishments nearly enough. Stop right [...]

Coping Strategies for Anxiety in Children

Set Clear Expectations It’s important to have similar expectations for anxious children that you have for non-anxious children. However, it can also be helpful to proceed at a slower pace and make some accommodations.
