Like clockwork, in November, I get an influx of patients seeing me for stress directly related to the holiday. I’ve identified 7 things that people do that ensure they’ll be stressed out. Read Entire Huffington Post column here.
Time after time patients tell me of their marital problems and I think to myself, if only they had waited to get married, then they probably wouldn’t be sitting here right now. So often I hear, “He wasn’t like this when I met him.” Or, “I had no idea she was such a slob.” As a couples’ therapist, I’ve come to realize that people rush to marriage and sometimes get married for all the wrong reasons or they do it way too early.

So many of my clients are influenced by how they look and how they feel. If someone feels depressed and lacks confidence, this is reflected in what they wear, and conversely, if someone has a positive attitude and is confident, that will show in their attire.I was not immune from this. As a teenager and in my early 20s, I felt uncomfortable being skinny. Click here to read the entire Huffington Post column.
I meet highly successful people every week. Many are accomplished business leaders, entrepreneurs, award-winning entertainers and visionaries — and all share a commonality: reaching out for help and not being ashamed to do so. These people are truly inspiring and have similar attributes that lead to their success and separate them from others. These people were not born great. Some of them went from rags to riches, while others are a work in progress. As a psychotherapist and executive coach, I teach these folks how to conduct themselves with determination, drive and an unwavering pursuit of their goals and passions. They have gone on to achieve great success and know the difference between good and great. Click here to read the entire Huffington Post column.
Have you ever had a friend who has stayed in a horrifically dysfunctional relationship, and thought, “Why doesn’t she leave him?” Maybe you’ve had a friend who has done the same with a work situation. This friend constantly complains about her boss, her coworkers and even the daily tasks. There’s nothing redeeming about the job, yet she stays.
Why don’t they get out? Fear. Humans, by nature, fear change. Read the entire Huffington Post column here.
Many patients see me for help conquering their fear of flying. This fear, unlike other fears, can be difficult to avoid. As a result, the impact on people is significant. I’ve had patients who have fits of vomiting days before their anticipated flight and I’ve known others who load up on anti-anxiety medications to calm down before the flight. This fear, if left untreated, can have a profound impact on people, as they may avoid vacations and business trips. This can affect a person’s career and even their relationships. The good news is this fear is treatable. Click here to read the entire column.
One fine day in 1963 two people whom I adore went on a date, and shortly thereafter they just knew they’d eventually marry each other. Fifty years later, they are indeed happily married and I am proud to call them my loving parents. Like them, sometimes you “just know” you’ve found the right person and that’s followed by a thoughtful, practical and organic approach towards getting to know each other and planning a life together. Today though, dating isn’t so simple and many times people complicate it unnecessarily. Read the entire Huffington Post column here.
