The Stories You Might Have Missed—Or Want Again

Posted May 30th, 2019

Last year, on the underground of London, I saw something that made me stop in my tracks. When the doors opened to Euston station, there it was….the EXACT reason I hold my SheSpeaks women’s storytelling series each year. And then, as quickly as it registered in my brain, the doors shut and we were off—in the underground again. I’ll never forget that moment as long […]

Getting Naked With My Truth

Posted May 18th, 2019

There are days I am convinced my entire life is strung together with a series of movie clips and soundtracks—connecting the bits of insights and moments of clarity in such a way that they literally reveal the breadcrumbs that have moved me forward. That was the case the other morning when I woke up with Cher’s voice in my head yelling “SNAP OUT OF IT”. […]

5 Antidotes For A Rugged April

Posted April 29th, 2019

April seems to have had its way with women this month and was a particularly rugged patch of road to navigate for many—emotionally, physically and spiritually. Limits were tested. Patience wore thin.

What if I were to call you a storyteller…how would you respond? Would you agree or would you start Yea-Butting me? Yea, but not a good one. Yea, but it’s not like I’m a REAL storyteller. Yea, but it’s not like I know what I’m doing. Yea, but it’s not really about anything important. Yea, but it’s not like anyone wants to hear what I […]

Feminine C4

Posted March 1st, 2019

“Please don’t let me blow shit up,” She said. It was literally one of the first things she said to me when she came into my office that day—a stranger, who would soon become my client. I smiled at her as she plopped down on my couch that day, because I knew. And so did she, it seems, as her eyes met mine. She was […]

Run, Lady, Run

Posted February 18th, 2019

“I feel like a feral cat pacing back and forth in a cage,” She said.   I looked at her and everything about her seemed like it wanted to be wild—her hair, the laugh that exploded out of her in a snort when she was caught off guard, the way her eyes lit up when she talked about taking the kids, getting a RV and […]
