Taking a Break from Being Supermom

As a new momma, I’ve begun to understand a whole new world of self-doubt. It’s not talked about much, or at least not enough. I remember sitting in the hospital  rocking chair rocking our brand new son, who was screaming at the top of his lungs, and being filled with immense fear. How was I going to do this? Could I do this? Did I have what it takes? Those days in the hospital seem long, yet they fly by. And then…you go home. This is the moment it all changes.

Christmas Gift Ideas

I love giving gifts! It is one of my favorite parts of the holidays. I love spending time looking to the perfect gift for every person on my list. Something that tells them I put thought into what they would like and what would make them feel special.

Making Your Marriage a Priority

As a marriage therapist I am seeing a growing trend with my couples that I am beginning to call the “black hole of marriage.” What is the black hole of marriage you ask? It is the hole that couples get sucked into when they are in the midst of raising young kids. What seems to happen is these couples have wonderful intentions about raising the family together but work, kids, activities, and just life in general gets in the way. During this busy time in life I am seeing couple after couple putting their relationship on the back burner as they try to manage everything else in their...
