What's Showing Up in Your World?

meditation Aug 22, 2020
 

I just wanted to give you a little bit of a concept that I've been working with today -- the concept of synchronicity. This is not an unknown concept. We've all heard this before and I wanted to share with you how I use it. 

I'd love to hear about how it worked out for you!

Back to Breathing

meditation self-care Aug 19, 2020
 

This is an exercise that I really love, give my clients, and do myself (often). You'll see the picture there -- two people sitting back-to-back (I’ll get to that).

So… I had these family members come into my session once and they each just had a bunch of unmet needs. They were so mad at each other. They just could not listen to one another. They were really frustrated and I wanted to give them a tool for them, at that moment, and whenever that happens at home (or whenever it...

Managing Intense Emotions

 

Here’s a tool for when you have really intense emotions (and I know that’s probably not too far from your reality at times these days). Let me walk you through how I help myself through an intense time.

There was an afternoon where I had two colliding intensities come together. When this happens, I get these cues about why and how I know I am in an intense time. Usually, it’s because I get incredibly overwhelmed and there may be other emotions going on at the time as well --...

Reframing Emotions

Hey everyone. It's Susan, and I wanted to just offer you something at the end of my day here... 

I run about 5 or 6 groups per week. I love groups. They’re so inspiring to me and I am always jotting down things that I want to talk about and revisit. 

One of the things that came up today was about how people are changing their relationship with their strong feelings -- and they’re meditating more. They’re trying to take space and just be with themselves and explore...

Love and Strength in the Time of COVID

 

My clients have been asking for a little more support around things they're telling me they’re struggling with, such as dealing with new co-parenting challenges and the impact on their relationship, keeping their relationships strong while spending so much extra time together, and finding a way to work on themselves during this time.

So, I invited back one of my colleagues, Robert Terris JD, MFT, who also specializes in working with people dealing with problems within their family. In...

Helping Your Children Through These Challenging Times

 

Hello,

Though we're starting to come out of sheltering-in-place more and more each day, the effects are still very much with us. Many families are still trying to deal with the lockdown and the many feelings that came up during this unusual time together. 

So, I invited back one of my colleagues, Chelsea Owens, LMFT, who specializes in Psychotherapy & Art Therapy with Adults, Adolescents, and Children. In this talk, we discuss how (because the normal challenges around...

Tackling the big decisions.


I’m noticing that there are so many decisions that we are having to make during this time of COVID-19.

Folks in my groups are talking about how taxing it is on their relationships when they’re having to deal with their friends, family, and partner in order to come to a consensus about how to interpret and adhere to the guidelines around COVID-19. They're having to face some difficult decisions.

Not only that -- but with more time and fewer distractions, they...

Managing Financial Insecurity with Guest Thomas Faupl, LMFT, SEP

 

 

Money has various meanings for people. For many, it can mean security, and, right now, that desire for financial security is being threatened for millions of people and it’s causing a lot of fear, worry, and anxiety.

We all need to work internally with our fear and stress response so that we can stay flexible and make the best decisions possible in this fast-changing and unpredictable climate. We are all being affected (with some in more painful ways than others,...

Is your anger at risk of getting out of control?

Here are four tips that I've recently been focusing on with my clients.

 

They’re pretty general, but I think they really work.

 

1.) Identify Your Triggers.
So, what does that mean? It means paying attention to your body and emotions and feeling in your body to find where your anger starts. Then, take note of the kinds of things that make you mad. It can be one thing or a combination of things... Sometimes it’s everything happening at...
