The Importance of Saying No: Practical Tips for a Healthier Life

Saying no is a problem many of my clients struggle with. It’s so challenging that many people seek my help to find ways to avoid saying no altogether. As a result, they end up sleep-deprived, depressed, anxious, resentful, and physically ill. This has got to stop. First, we all have to accept that saying no is necessary.

What is the Difference Between Counseling and Coaching?

Are you wondering what is the difference between marriage counseling and marriage coaching? Very briefly, coaching does not look to the past to see what is wrong.

In our daily lives, many of us find ourselves bound by the unspoken need for everyone to agree with us, like us, accept us, and treat us in a particular way. The moment someone strays from this expectation, or disagrees with us, it can cast a shadow over our entire day. Of course, it’s natural… Read More »Wrong Belief #9: People have to agree with me, like me, accept me and treat me in a certain way

Wrong Belief # 7: If I forgive someone it means I condone their behavior

If I forgive someone, does it mean I condone their behavior? Or that I trust that person and want to be friends with him/her, and that our relationship is healed. No, it doesn’t mean any of these things. Forgiveness is a completely separate issue. Sometimes you can repair a relationship, and sometimes you can’t.
