Ballet Wednesday. I love them in their leotards and jackets and winter boots in 72 degree weather on the way to class. ❄️ #verasballetwednesday

Monday morning. I'm so, so happy to be home with my sweet girls. I hadn't been away for that long in a while, and it was a beautiful, but intense week on the east coast. Christmas music, Shopkins all over my dining room table, school lunches to pack, and these two sweet faces are the very best things to wake up to.

Waking up in Connecticut. So happy to be getting a taste of autumn. And even happier to be hosting another Motherless Daughters Retreat with @sherlockhope. 💛 @motherlessdaughtersretreats #motherlessdaughters

🌸End of the year special announcement! 🌸

For the next week I am offering a very limited amount of discounted rates on both for therapy (in-person or phone) and book coaching (in-person or phone). This is going to be my last discounted offer for a little while, as I only have a very small amount of room in my schedule to take on new clients.

I absolutely love this work, and in the least few years I have seen dozens of private clients through intensive grief work, managing and diminishing anxiety, learning how to reconnect with lost loved ones, examining personal stories on never-before explored levels, repairing broken or damaged relationships, writing memoirs (from scratch and beyond), completing book proposals + querying agents, fine-tuning + editing manuscripts, and embracing the stories that live within all of us.
If you are interested in taking advantage of this discounted offer, either for therapy (phone or in-person) or book coaching (phone or in-person), please message me for more details. These packages have become very popular and people use them in a variety of ways: they can be used all at once in succession, or stretched out over the course of a year depending on necessity. If you are already working with me, please feel free to pass this on to anyone who might be interested!
It was an absolute honor to be part of #theconvoseries at HBO talking about grief and mother loss with so many extraordinary women. The more that we can all engage in these hard conversations the more meaningful our lives can become. @sherlockhope @agilbertwriter @modernloss @rebeccasoffer #empowerher @hbo @motherlessdaughtersretreats

Monday morning goldfish funeral. Over the weekend the girls each won a goldfish at the Halloween carnival. Bubbles and Scales. They even made up a song about how Bubbles and Scales were best friends. But last night we came home to find that Bubbles was no longer with us. We all cried.
The thing is that even though we knew this was likely, we already loved Bubbles. And it's never easy to say goodbye to someone we love, even a goldfish.
We buried him this morning under the rosebush, alongside our old Beta fish, Ruby. "Mom, why do I feel so sad?" Vera asked me. "This is grief," I told her. "You're sad because you love so deeply and so freely. But just because Bubbles isn't here anymore doesn't mean you can't still love him." She nodded at me and we headed off to school in the cool, misty morning.
This week on the podcast: Demystifying the Five Stages of Grief. If you've ever felt confused about how the five stages work, or wondered if there might even be other stages you've never heard about, you can listen to me talk through this famous five stage model of grief on my Sunday Mourning podcast. (Link in profile.) #sundaymourningseries #goldfishfuneral
Really proud of my girls for insisting that we come out today to support their pal and classmate at the @jdrfhq T1D One Walk. #jdrfonewalk #td1
My favorite night of the year with my favorite people. Celebrating and supporting freedom of speech at the glamorous @pencenterusa literary awards. ❤️ 📚 #penlitfest2017

Thursday night movie night. I hadn't seen him in a month. Long distance relationships are so hard. Sometimes eating dinner and watching a Tom Hanks film seems like the best thing in the world. My father once told me that if we didn't have death we'd never know how sweet life is. I think of that sentiment often, and feel fortunate to love someone this much at all. ❤️ #cbsluvsmd
