How To Navigate Seasons of Change

I think my aversion to change began when I was 17 years old. Before that age, I had everything under control or at least I felt like I did. I had a carefully thought-out roadmap for my life.

How to Talk About Finances With Your Significant Other

As a couples therapist, it may not surprise you that I see many couples struggling with conversations and disagreements surrounding the topic of money. It’s a classic fight that couples have, like loading the dishwasher, asking for directions and driving. Money is just one of those things we expect couples to disagree about.

A Lesson From the French on How to Rest Well During Summertime

It’s difficult to put into words what summertime means in France. An analogy that seems fitting is to compare summer in France to a finely aged wine. The French work hard all year to harvest the fruit of their labor, but when it comes to summer vacation, they know that, like an aged bottle of red, the secret to excellence is allowing time, rest and stillness to do the work. So let’s...

Tips for Succeeding as a Full-Time Freelancer

The start of my career as a full-time writer, ghostwriter and content creator was unintentional.

Up until that point, I’d lived most of my adult life as if both roles were meant to be my future. I saw...
