When is it time to get Marriage Therapy?
- Are you and your spouse stuck in a pattern of thinking, feeling, or behaving that aren’t working for one or both of you?
- Do you find there is a fair amount of criticism, contempt, defensiveness, and/or stonewalling that makes being around each other pretty unbearable?
- When there are arguments or mean things said, one or the both of you have a hard time taking responsibility of your words and actions or saying you’re sorry and being remorseful.
- Is there an issue or two that you have in your marriage that just keeps coming up over and over again?
- Your spouse says he/she won’t go to marriage therapy or doesn’t think your relationship needs it.
If you are experiencing one or more of these five situations, it is time to schedule an appointment with an certified marriage therapist.
Whether you come together as a couple or you come on your own, you will benefit from working through this difficult time. It won’t always feel great, but you likely begin to feel a relief that you have been wanting.
The holidays are quickly approaching and for some it’s a time of joy and excitement. For others it can be stressful and anxiety producing. If the thought about being around your family brings some dread or resistance, then this is the class for you!

For those of you who have been in my class, “Mindfulness for Anxiety & Irritability,” here are some of the guided mindfulenss exercises we have done in class.
These exercises are from the book, “Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World”
This fits perfectly with my 2-Minute Meditations!

When we allow our emotions to be controlled by someone else we hand over our power and that leaves us powerless.
When we get a spark of anger or hatred we have to be aware of how we feel and actively choose to not feed that feeling. (How we build new neural pathways.)
What we feed grows.
If we feed the anger and hatred it grows…inside of us…and emanates from us. Essentially we become what we dislike. When we choose to be the peace, love, and joy we want to see in the world, we become empowered, we retain our power, and we emanate peace, love and joy out into the world.
Hence the saying, “Be the peace you want to see in the world.”
I love thinking of things in new ways. It helps me in my work with my clients.
The link below leads to a thought-provoking clip from Christie Marie Sheldon about vibrations. She references a fascinating book by David R. Hawkins, MD, PhD about Applied Kinesiology and vibration calibration called Power vs. Force. Check it out!
Many of my clients mention feeling that they experience Seasonal Affective Disorder every Winter. Having grown up in Seattle I totally understand what they’re talking about. However, going through Winter is an important process seasonally and in our personal lives.
