Follow Your Dreams

A Dream Come True

In 2013, I sold Polish translation rights of my book CREATING A HEALTHY LIFE AND MARRIAGE to Purana Publishing. They changed the book cover and gave it the title WOUNDED HEARTS to appeal to the Polish people and culture. Although it was my heart’s desire to bless the...

The Passing of our Brutie Boy

A Tribute to Brutie – Who died on September 29, 2017

A Holistic Commitment to Your Self

“I believe we are a “four-part” person: body, mind, emotions and spirit. Each part of us is important and requires attention. Each of the parts has an impact on the others. If you neglect one part of your Self, you will create a state of “dis-ease,” which will...

A Story of Hope and Divine Intervention

October 18, 2013 TONIGHT, AT 8:15 P .M., MY HUSBAND AND I WERE driving home from dinner. We stopped at a red light. Because it was a warm night my passenger window was rolled down. It was then that I heard the desperate screaming of a cat that was trapped in the...

Architectural Landscaping (A Metaphor)

Architectural landscaping is fascinating to me, as a therapist, because of its similarity to the therapeutic process: You have to admit there is a problem with the way things are and you have to have a clear vision of what you want it to become. The slow, hard work...
