The 3 R’s To Live By

When I first greet clients in the waiting area and take them back to my office whether it’s for our first or fortieth session they are usually feeling a combination of nervous, afraid, agitated, stressed, and any other possible emotion. If I were to try and plow full speed ahead into a deep conversation with

Three Life Lessons From Having a Puppy

When I moved to Nashville three months ago I knew that living alone in a new city was not going to be my ideal situation. To make the transition easier I thought about the possibility of adopting a dog. I had a few dogs growing up but of course the real work of raising a

Raising Our Perspective On Breakthrough By: Maureé Sullivan

I remember the December of 2016 like it was yesterday. Five months prior to that time, I had just graduated from college with a fashion business degree. I had dreams of doing “great things”- not necessarily sure what those things were at the time, but I knew that if I kept walking in the right

Letting Go

As some of you may have known I’ve had the privilege from time to time to contribute articles to various Christian online publications. One publication that is near and dear to my heart is Propel Women. When I lived in California I worked closely with this organization, and I love dearly the amazing crew of

A More Powerful Yes

It’s been a busy season to say the least. It’s not uncommon that Friday arrives and I can’t even remember how I got there. It’s like when you’re so deep in thought while you’re driving that you get a case of auto-pilot amnesia or something (totally just made that up), and can’t even remember how

I had this ah-huh moment recently concerning a prayer that I’m pretty sure I’ve prayed at least a million times. You know, it’s that prayer you offer with so much passion and fervor, and instead

A Random Act of Kindness

It was a really cold Saturday afternoon in Chicago two weeks before Christmas, and I was doing what basically every other person in the city was doing–going Christmas shopping, of course. On this particular December day it was so cold that literally every time you stepped out of your warm car or house you just

How Will I Know?

Do we have any Whitney Houston fans in the house? I mean how could you not? With iconic songs like, “I will always love you”, and “I have nothing”, it would be impossible not to belt it out, (with a lot less skill, of course). Anyways, one of Whitney’s greatest songs called, “How Will I Know”,

How to Rise Above

Now this may sound like a question for a group of kindergarten students, but have you ever wondered what the science is behind how some things float on water, and others do not? If you have ever passed by a river in a bustling city or a busy marina, you probably would have seen plenty of empty plastic
