When The Student is Ready, The Teacher Appears

One thing I really love about being a doctor is that I have the privilege of helping people overcome illness and pain by creating an overall strategy for wellness.

Saying Goodbye to Old Habits

I love the idea of saying “goodbye” to old habits. It’s a declaration to yourself, to your loved ones and to the world that you are in control of your own destiny. Even more powerfully, you can decide to completely rethink the behaviors and beliefs that may have become second nature, but are not necessarily… Read More »


Who am I?

I’ve seen it thousands of times over the years. A woman comes into my office exhausted, emotional, lethargic and scared.

Why do we put ourselves through this misery? We… Read More »


FEEL Your Feelings

Most mothers instinctively scoop up their children when they fall down and shower them with kisses and comforting sentiments that might include, “You’re OK!” or “Everything’s Fine” or “That wasn’t so bad, was it?” Yes, parents just want to make things better. But as a mom and a doctor, I know that people need to… Read More »


The Natural World

We live in a busy world. So many of us are up early, have a fully scheduled day and then before we know it, we are back at home getting ready for the evening routine. We are exhausted. So when was the last time you actually ate a meal outside or traded your gym workout… Read More »


My Path to Authorship

Well, after many years of considering it, I have decided to take the plunge and write my first (of many) books! I was inspired by my brilliant and beautiful nine year-old daughter whose summer project is to write her own book. I am so proud. Hers is sure to be imaginative, dramatic and magical.
