Imagine a high school hallway - any generic high school hallway will do - and imagine two young women practically dancing down the hallway, arm in arm -

giggling in a way only certain unaffected, un-self-conscious people (NOT ME) can pull off…

It’s 2003, four days before Thanksgiving…and these two returned from their freshman year at college to visit their teachers & gloat to their younger friends.

They were absolutely blissed out - all the drama of high school dissipated.

What to do when you have no idea what’s wrong

Dec 27, 2020

I come home & everyone wants a piece of me. I AM SO SICK OF IT!

Meet RJ - a client who didn’t know exactly what was wrong - only that SOMETHING was keeping her miserable. 

She felt exhausted & overwrought, every night -

and she’d come home to her family & be SO irritated - with the world, really - that she’d either retreat, get nasty & rude, or start YELLING.

Thanksgiving 2020 started out with me sobbing, out of nowhere, on the couch next to my husband.

Neither John NOR I had any idea what was going on!
