Your Life Has Arrived

We live in a world that has been dominated by a masculine approach. My profession has been, predominantly, lead by men and women who have embodied this approach, including myself. Medicine and many other professions are focused on structure, timelines, productivity, determination, discipline and physical stamina. Women have been incredibly successful in many realms where they have learned, through years of hard work, to walk, talk and think like a man. And it’s been an essential part of how we have been elevated to our current place in the professional world. We need women to step up and embrace the logic and task-oriented approach that has gained us a seat at the table. I am grateful to those women (and those qualities in all of us) for how far we have come.

Centuries of living in a world created by men, for men, have taught us not to trust our feminine instincts. Yet, many women sense that something is missing. Restlessness and overwhelm have become the norm. Intuition whispers that there is better way. Inner yearnings are waking us up to possibilities that were, until now, impossible.

Beyond the Looking Glass

We will never advance the thinking of our world by continuing to function from a, “we are right, they are wrong” perspective.

We will never heal the gapping open wounds inflicted on our nation by believing “we are better than them.”

Everyone has an opinion and it’s never simple, only simplified. Each and every individual walking the face of our planet views the world through a looking glass.

This looking glass was created for them and by them.

The only way to bring our world together is to seek to know ourselves so well that we cultivate awareness of our own looking glass. We must start to realize how our perspective was formed and acknowledge the way it distorts our view. Each person’s viewpoint carries value. As much value as our own. We don’t have to conform and we mustn’t accept unethical or immoral actions against our fellow humans. But it’s time to stop judging and start listening.

My gift to you for 2017

I'm getting back to routines this week and I realized a few things that reinforce my vision for 2017. I spent time in the office this week and, as with every week, I saw many women at the end of their rope. I sat with women who are overwhelmed, exhausted and confused.

I have been experiencing the frustration women feel for 20 years so this week was no surprise. But I have promised myself that this year I will take action like never before.

An incredible sadness washes over me when I realize how difficult it is for so many women to find peace, acceptance and self-love. Our society and our entire world is suffering because, as yet, there is no path forward for women who are frustrated, lost and alone in their struggle.

I've declared that, for me, 2017 will be different. 

Read how I plan to do this...

And there is a free gift (valued at $125) at the end for you too!

Happy New Year!

I love New Year’s resolutions but, more than that, I love the freedom that comes from knowing that there are 365 days ahead and that when those days are gone my life will look entirely differently than it does today.

Just as I reflect and journal about all that transpired in 2016, saying good-bye to ups and downs, I also know that I will sit and reflect on 2017 the same way. 

Only today – it’s all in front of me and that is truly invigorating!

What will these next 52 weeks bring? What “control” do I have over the events about to unfold?

7 Steps to Taking Back Your Life

“When we truly care for ourselves, it becomes possible to care far more profoundly about other people. The more alert and sensitive we are to our own needs, the more loving and generous we can be toward others” (Eda LeShan)

When, on earth, do we have time to nurture ourselves? Between loads of laundry, field trips, college applications, ailing parents and dinner? In my practice, I hear these kinds of questions from exhausted women daily. These questions are always difficult to answer as the woman asking feels defeated and many times without hope. When responding I always guide my patients to...
