5 Ways to Love Yourself this Valentine’s Day

How do you feel about Valentine’s Day? I have seen this holiday trigger reactions at both ends of the continuum. Some people embrace all that is red and pink, while others can’t wait for it to be over. Regardless of which camp you fall into, I’d like you to think about Valentine’s Day in a different way this year – not just as a blatant reminder of a lack of companionship OR solely as a way to immerse yourself in all things romantic.

What is CBT?

We recently posted a question on our  Facebook and Twitter accounts and the responses to that quiz piqued my interest. According to the results, many of our readers have heard of CBT but not many have actually tried it. That made me think that it might be useful to explain how CBT can help an individual – not just with mental health problems, but also in a variety of areas of your life.

Summertime! Swimsuit Anxiety…

I love to hear stories of personal growth. I’m a psychologist; it’s a big part of what we do. Now and then I like to feature the voice of someone sharing their own story in their own voice. Summer is a season for grilling and swimming with family and friends. Sadly, for many it’s also a time for anxiety about appearance.

Take Back Your Island (from Anxiety)

Summer is here! The warm sun of summer often encourages us to engage in new commitments and patterns as we look ahead with hope, making, for some, new seasonal resolutions. Often, those of us hoping for change are facing some kind of fear, whether it’s fear-of-the-new or fear-of-changing-the-old.
