Men Need Chocolate Too

As women, girlfriends, wives, mothers, I think we love our independence and being able to say “I can take care of myself – I’ve got this” and really mean it.  But deep down we also really like being taken care of too.  We want to know that someone has our back, if we need the […]

These Words Will Ruin Your Marriage


The Best Revenge

I have been divorced for 2 1/2 years, for the most part things have been uneventful.  I have full custody of our two children and my ex lives in another state and never sees our kids unless he happens to be in town for something – they are usually an afterthought unfortunately.  Nevertheless, it has […]

To Marry or Not To Marry That Is The Question

I was having a conversation with a friend who works at a local college, in particular we were talking about the current trends when it comes to millennials. We were talking about things such as the fact that most would rather rent than buy, and I’m not just talking about housing. The trend is more […]

Second Act

I, like most of my readers, have gone through a transition.  I turned 50 and after several years of back and forth managed to finalize my divorce.  Now I stand at the precipice of my life as a 50 year old solo parent wondering what next.  For me I realized that after 18 years of […]

Happy Birthday!

Today is my daughter’s birthday.  17 years ago I had my first child.  I can still remember the feeling I had that day in the hospital.  I had never been happier in my life.  Although not only did I not want to have children, I didn’t think I could, so imagine my surprise when I […]

When To Let Go

Lately it seems that I have seen a lot of clients that are returning with issues many years after their marriage has ended.  One of the reasons for this it appears, is that one party unfortunately has been unable to let go and move on. I am sure at the time they married they thought […]

7 Things

This last week I have been very ill.  Most days I was hardly able to get out of bed let alone do the things required of me on a daily basis.  Yet, I did.  As a parent of two with no help, no matter how sick I was I still had to get up everyday, […]
