How time flies! It's hard to believe September is almost here. I guess it's true that time flies when you're having fun... and to be honest I actually HAVE been having a lot of fun. It feels almost weird to say that right now, since I know that many of us are struggling with issues related to the pandemic-- truth be told, I've had a few struggles as well (not me being sick, but people I care about!).... of course I wish the pandemic had not happened, but I must confess it has brought some silver linings and new awareness to my life-- and for that I'm grateful.

The newsletter below is JAM PACKED with tons of stuff-- I've been accused of "overstuffing the envelope" on my newsletters before, and I admit there's a lot-- but so much is happening right now, and I like to share it!:) I'm thinking about maybe a bimonthly newsletter to make them more digestible, but I also don't want to clog your inbox... what do you think? Feel free to hit "reply" to let me know your thoughts, and share anything else you'd like!

Enjoy the rest of August... and I know September is going to be amazing too =)

This approach may surprise you, but it’s effective.

Tanya didn’t exactly seem like a stereotypical anger management client: she was polished, polite, and successful. Not the sort of person you’d imagine losing their temper or having a wild outburst. To her credit, Tanya actually didn’t have wild outbursts of anger. She was more prone to sardonic snipes, passive aggression, and fits of quiet, seething contempt that she didn’t know how to process.

“I try to tell myself to just forget things, take a deep breath, and not get so upset,” she said, “But sometimes it just doesn’t work.” Read the full blog here.




The Ultimate Guide to Breakups

Breakups can be brutal. Here’s what you need to know!

We all know breakups can be incredibly painful. As a clinical psychologist who works with high functioning people, I know that if you’re an intelligent and persistent person who likes to make things work, it can be mind-boggling to encounter a situation where no matter how much you want to make things work, the only thing to do is actually to give up and move on. Of course, it is almost impossible to make a breakup easy, but at least there are some strategies that can help make the process a little easier, and potentially help you to be better prepared to make good, healthy choices when you’re ready to date again.

Here are some tips that can help:

1. Don’t grieve alone. Losing a relationship can feel almost like a death of the relationship. We were not meant to grieve alone, so consider making sure that you’re always with a supportive friend or family member for the first week or two. Especially if you lived together or spent a lot of time together, you may be feeling a major void– obviously a friend or family member doesn’t fill the void, but at the very least it can be helpful to surround yourself with support during a loss. Some people even arrange to stay on a friend’s couch if need be, or have a friend stay with them, for the first days or weeks.
