a letter to my body image class students on our last day of class

With every new interaction, we arrive to each other not fully formed, broken even. That is not saying anything about you; it is just a reflection on the nature of life.  Our entire life’s journey is about healing in some way, about finding wholeness, and we are always on that journey, always on a quest […]

The Kids are Alright Fall 2015

At the end of each semester, my body image students write a process paper where they synthesize their learning- both personal and academic- for the semester.

a simple strategy for the season

The holidays.  For most of us, those two words bring up a mixed bag of feelings. Lingering over a fireplace with loved ones while drinking mulled wine.  JOY! Four party invitations for the same night.  ANXIETY. Delighting someone with the perfect gift.  JOY! Not realizing that someone has a food allergy and that ingredient is […]

You can take care of you.

So, here we are.  If you are stateside, we are just days away from kicking off the most wonderful time of the year… the Thanksgiving to New Year’s time span that is filled to overflowing with togetherness, love, goodness, merriment, joy, happiness, and, well, if we are being real here, anxiety.  Because while, in theory, […]

A simple dare

A simple dare

So, every year in anticipation of my birthday, I write a list.  It started as a simple dare. Find something to do outside of your job, I told myself in that third year of teaching when my work hours stretched from 6 am until 10 pm, or you will end up celebrating your sixtieth birthday […]
