Transcending the Political Blame Game

The post-election political blame game occurring right now has reached almost Olympian proportion. I haven’t seen this much blame bashing and finger-pointing in all my 25+ years as a therapist. What blame game, you might ask? Unless you have been living in a sterile bubble on Mars, this contentious race is still not over. There […]

Can Pathological Liars Change?

Pathological liars are made, not born, say the experts. It is a learnt behavior, reinforced and hard-wired into the brain after repeatedly experiencing some benefit.

Back in 2011, while searching for shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea, some marine treasure hunters using sonar detection equipment picked up an unusual giant underwater object. The seafloor structure was 200 feet in diameter, circular, and had a terraced stone construction. Initially they thought the anomaly might […]

“I’ll Have the Edward Snowden Room, Please”

Electile Dysfunction in the Age of Conspiracy Theory

As we get closer to November 8th election day, the daily news feeds read more like a cliff-hangar of “who done what”. Congress is investigating Hillary’s email server, WikiLeaks is getting ready to release more damning emails, and the most recent Democratic National Committee email leaks show a corrupt pay-to-play government at work where every […]

Life is All About How You Handle “Plan B”

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” ― Albert Einstein Being flexible and able to quickly shift gears to a “Plan B” mode is not only a key to success, but also an indicator of how physically and emotionally healthy you are. My father, a Horatio Alger type success story, who didn’t graduate […]

Power Spirit Totems Which Guide Us

If you have ever encountered a running deer while driving, you know what a rush of fear feels like. Now imagine a huge wild boar with tusks—an animal known to charge at vehicles. There’s no mistaking the inherent danger. A few weeks ago, while visiting a friend’s home in Tuscany, Italy, I had such an […]
