Vulnerability Hangover

By Patti | 0 Comments

Patti here. Have you ever had that experience where you open up and share of yourself and then afterwards you feel, well, kind of emotionally hungover?

By Grace Porter | 0 Comments

Grace here. I am looking out my window at the second largest maple tree in the state of Washington. This beautiful tree serves as my reminder of the ebb and flow of life. Every spring it bursts forth with new leaves and new life. Transforming our yard with color and bringing the whirly-gigs that prick…

Santa knows everyone needs love Patti here, I am going to go out on a limb here and talk about Santa. Not because I think everyone should celebrate Christmas or because they ought to believe like I do, but rather because I think Santa is pretty darn cool. He’s a big jolly fellow who enjoys…

I recently had a client come to session talking about the power of the word “and”. I’ll be honest and say I’m not sure if those are her words or something I once said that resonated with her. And I don’t suppose it really matters except in my desire to give credit where credit is…

Tweezing Out the Truth

You might be surprised when you take a look at yourself from a new perspective Patti here. Sometimes it’s important to ask for help. And sometimes that’s a hard lesson to learn.
