Managing Change
In any time of crisis or disruption, we have the opportunity to start fresh and create a new normal. This is however much easier said than done.

Stress Management
The fear of not having enough food (or not wanting to deal with grocery stores) during a pandemic can trigger a hoarder response and have you stockpile as much food as possible.

There have to be endings to create new beginnings. An old year ends and a new year begins, full of promises of change and new experiences. Mitch Albom, author of “The Five People You Meet in Heaven,” wrote: “All endings are also beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time.” Some of my clients...

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
Reflecting on the recent traumatic experience of Hurricane Irma, I remembered learning in school about Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Abraham Maslow proposed his theory of motivation in 1943. The theory simply states that humans have various needs that must be met before progression to the next level is possible. He defined five levels. From bottom...
