Your Move, Parent: What to Do When Your Teen Is Cutting

You look over at your lovely daughter and think to yourself how time flies. Gazing at her with love, you notice red marks and lines on her youthful arms. Immediate panic sets in; you reach over with shock and say, “What is this?!” Your parental urgency sounds like terror, and your daughter pulls away quickly and rebuffs your concern. She retreats to her room, and you are left wondering where you went wrong and concerned... Read More

According to a group of 11 studies sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration, food preferences... Read More

Help! I’m in Love with My Best Friend’s Ex!

September 5, 2014

Your friend is going to be hurt. There is no way around that. When you made the choice to start hanging out with your best friend’s ex without telling her, that’s when you made the decision to hide your actions, and possibly your feelings, from her. On some level you must have known that she would be bothered by it, and you chose not to tell her. I don’t say this to judge or to blame, but I think it... Read More

The Trauma of Workplace Stress: How Therapy Can Help

September 5, 2014

Most of us experience work stress, but can too many responsibilities, unrealistic expectations, and personality conflicts at work lead to an experience of trauma victimization over time? In my years of private psychotherapy practice, I’ve seen several cases where individuals experience signs similar to posttraumatic stress as a result of work problems. In the beginning, I found this slightly odd. I wondered: could negative... Read More

Are You the One You’ve Been Waiting For?

September 4, 2014

Many fairy tales end with the line: “And they lived happily ever after.” Ditto for most romantic movies, which have the same implied message: true happiness lies in being coupled. The holy grail of life is to find that special person. Certainly, life can be quite wonderful if you are lucky enough to find a great mate, but what if you are in a hiatus between relationships? What if you haven’t met that... Read More

How Can I Get My Partner to Change?

September 4, 2014

When I ask my partner to change a behavior or do something differently, am I asking them to change who they are? This is a question I frequently get from people in couples counseling. Who are we, anyway? Any parent who has more than one child can testify that each is different in temperament from birth. I am not suggesting that you can change your basic, inherent temperament. I do believe you can learn new behaviors if... Read More

The Healing Power of Journaling Your Way through Cancer

September 3, 2014

“In the diary you find proof that in situations which today would seem unbearable, you lived, looked around and wrote down observations, that this right hand moved then as it does today, when we may be wiser because we are able to look back upon our former condition, and for that very reason have got to admit the courage of our earlier striving in which we persisted even in sheer ignorance.” –Franz Kafka Several...

Conveying Confidence: It’s What You Say, Not What You Do

September 2, 2014

Everyone knows a braggart, and most people have witnessed endless self-promotion on social media sites. For those who are more self-conscious, preferring humility to self-aggrandizement, the idea that people are judged on what they do rather than what they say can be comforting. According to new research, though, overestimating yourself may encourage others to overestimate you as well. Braggarts may actually be seen as... Read More
