Live life beautiful.

Live well, love hard, and laugh often. Create beauty as you embrace all you are and were meant to be. If you haven't before, start now. After all, you're the only one standing in your way.

Welcome to My Home

Although I am a psychologist by training, I've transitioned my work into the realm of what I termed "mental fitness." To be mentally fit is to have all the skills needed to successfully meet every challenge life throws at us. This doesn't mean we don't stumble and fall down. It just means we don't stay down. Being mentally fit also means we're balanced, not lopsided. Too many of us are excellent at one thing like work, creativity, or relationships, but not so hot at the rest of our life. This simply won't do. It is important to find balance and skillfully manage all areas of our lives if we are to live to our fullest, love to our fullest, and leave behind a meaningful legacy.
