A Plea From Your Friendly Mental Health Therapist

A Plea From Your Friendly Mental Health Therapist

I am a daughter.  I am a friend.  I am a sister, a boss lady, neighbor and a pet mom.  I love cooking, laughing, learning and most things that are fuzzy. I tell you this because I want you to see me as a real human being.  I need you to see me as a real human being...

Did you know that around 95% of a person’s serotonin (a neat little neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood, sleep and appetite) is produced in their gastrointestinal tract?  Yep that’s right-95%!  You might be saying, “And why are we talking about...

Running with Kevin Hart

Running with Kevin Hart

As previously noted, I am not a natural born runner.  I am slow at best, clumsy at worst…the bruising on my left knee can speak to it, trust me.  I have run the same way for about 20 years now.  I find the most colorful shoe a person can buy, cheap running clothes and...

Picasso During COVID-19

So we all saw the online tutorials light up this past spring with our stay at home orders.  You could take a class on baking bread, painting, gardening, and crocheting…the possibilities were really endless.  But do you know why you and the rest of the...
