What Your Therapist Really Thinks About You Have you ever wondered what your therapist is thinking while you're sitting there spilling out all of your anxieties and the thoughts that zip around your head that you'd never tell anyone else? Have you ever paused and worried, what did she just write down? Or think, "she probably thinks I'm nuts." Or "I can't believe I'm ugly crying, she must think..." Or any of the other things that we think about before, during and after therapy. Well I'm here to spill the beans on what your therapist may be thinking. I am a therapist, I have a therapist and I'm friends with a lot of therapists. I asked a bunch of therapists what they...
Mom Guilt: Will It Ever Go Away? Mom guilt is a common phenomenon experienced by many mothers, often characterized by feelings of inadequacy, doubt, and self-blame. Whether it's struggling to balance work and family responsibilities, feeling guilty about taking time for oneself or questioning parenting decisions, mom guilt can be overwhelming and distressing. Mom guilt can stem from various sources, including societal expectations, internalized pressure to be a perfect parent, and comparisons with other mothers.

Unapologetically Weird

Unapologetically Weird Growing up family events put me in a perpetual state of anxiety. My cousins were not my friends. In fact, they barely spoke to me. It made me feel like such an outcast at the time. I remember dreading holidays and only got through them with either a book in my face or with the help of my I-Pod shuffle. I just never fit in.

As I grow older though, the feeling of being ‘the outcast’ has made its way back into my life. It's not always easy to embrace our uniqueness, especially...
Unresolutions {Part 1} My family lived a ludicrous year 2023. We dealt with 11 months of recurrent-boil-raising MRSA in both our kids (and the attendant dozens of doctors' appointments). Our older son was bullied at school, and we spent almost the entire academic year battling an administration that refused to address the problem, file the appropriate (and legally required) paperwork, or change his classroom environment.
