Out of an abundance of caution for all during this COVID-19 Pandemic, I am conducting psychotherapy and life coaching sessions through secured online video.


Last year around this time, I sent quotes from people who inspire me.  I received a lot of positive feedback from those quotes, so am sending you more this year, in both my blog and newsletter (click here to subscribe to my newsletter).

I collect quotes, and then go to them whenever I feel a need for extra inspiration. They work for me and might also work for you.

  • Risk. So scary, and yet so necessary for a happy life. Not gambling, but stepping into the great unknown … From Paulo Coelho

If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It’s lethal. 


Happy 2018, everyone!
