The rhythms of your life

Greetings everyone,

This is an invitation to set aside a little time, and reflect on your life.

How is it going? How does its pace feel to you?

My new article at GoodTherapy.org explores exactly these questions, and ties them to the innate rhythms of our nervous systems.

Enjoy! And as always, feel free to leave a comment if you would like.

Living in an Age of Eco Anxiety

Greetings everyone,

Do you ever find yourself worrying about the state of our natural environment, and its ecosystems?

Do you find the topic pretty overwhelming, feel helpless, so you turn away and try to think about something else?

In my most recent article at GoodTherapy.org, I explore this topic, as well as what we can do to begin to create change.

Please feel free to check it out, and as always, to leave comments at the bottom of the article!

Why Do I Do That?

Pleased to announce the publication of another article on GoodTherapy.org.  This one is about how the threat response subtly impacts our behaviors, in ways we can’t always consciously explain.

The Felt Sense: Our Inner Vitality

Hello everyone,

What is the felt sense? How do we access it? Why is it important–not only in healing, but in daily living? You can find out by reading my new article at GoodTherapy.org.

The Biology of Calm Well Being

Why do I frequently encourage my clients to stop talking for a moment, and notice what’s happening in their physical experience?

Well, because I’m a somatic therapist, of course….and that’s what somatic therapists do!

Okay, that’s kind of a non-answer.  So then, why do somatic therapists do this? Why do they always interrupt when we just want to unload what’s on our mind?

Ultimately, as my new article explains, the goal is to cultivate a state of calm well being!

Now, on our way there, we might have to go through some waves of really not feeling so great, or calm, or well.  In fact, most people do. But developing this ability to “put on the brakes” is hugely important in the long run.

You can read about it and my other articles at GoodTherapy.org.  (My articles are linked at the bottom of my therapist profile.)

Self Regulation and Why It’s Important

In my latest installment published on the GoodTherapy.org blog, you can read about self-regulation.

What is it, why is it important, and how do we start working towards improving this internal balance?

How to Help Someone with Post-Traumatic Stress

I’m pleased to announce the publication of an article I wrote!

My article is published at GoodTherapy.org, where they have recently invited me to become a topic expert on somatic therapy and post-traumatic stress.  The article provides basic education about how to help someone who has post-traumatic stress.

Here’s the link! Feel free to share it with anyone who might find it helpful.

In the meantime, here’s a photo of an Icelandic waterfall, to hopefully brighten your day just a bit.
