Pick a thought, any thought

I love the idea that we get to choose our results.  Sometimes, in moments of frustration or continued failure, it’s easy to blame other people, or circumstances, or the Universe on the results we’re getting (or not getting), but really it all comes down to our thoughts and feelings. What do I want to achieve? THE GOAL. This could be anything, from weight loss, to not losing my s*** getting my kids out the door,…

Choose your own Adventure

On this day, one year ago, I got bangs. I remember it vividly because it felt like a portend of positivity; a fresh start, a little bit of newness. I felt good. Ironically, the following day we shut the clinics, the city, the world, down. (Should I have just stuck with the side part?) Somebody on my table said to me yesterday, “This was such a wasted year. I can never get it back, and…

I have a body (When ‘I love myself’ is not accessible)

If you’ve ever stood in front of a mirror and thought, “ugh” or worse, I see you. I’ve struggled with weight, body image and self-love for most of my 38 years. It’s interesting to me, especially lately as I’m delving into managing my emotions better, that it actually doesn’t matter what your body looks like. You can have negative thoughts about yourself regardless of who’s looking back at you in the mirror. Me, for example.…

Our Belief System & The Ways We Hold Ourselves Back

Limiting beliefs. You and I and everyone else have them to some degree but we’re often not consciously aware of them. As a result, we’re hamstrung in our search for happy, meaningful lives free of trauma, self-doubt and self-sabotage. The following limiting beliefs checklist can be eye opening. I often use this with clients to quantify the impacts my therapies have had during a session. Go down the list and without overthinking it, give a…

Leaning In To Your Feels

Currently, it’s February in Ottawa and EVERYTHING IS AWESOME. The canal is open, friends! I freaking LOVE skating. My kids are so excited to be back in school! I’m really excited to crush this week. Wait. No. NOPE. It’s February in Ottawa and we are in the middle of a pandemic. It’s bitterly cold. My kids have been home for the last decade (it feels that way, I swear). Dude, I love them more than…

Harmony

I’m obsessed with this song The Wellerman. It’s a sea shanty. If you listen to the lyrics it’s about a ship whose captain hooks a whale and 40 days later it’s still towing the boat around. But the story is not what appeals to me about it. It’s the harmony: all the voices, alto, tenor, baritones, base. As one individual singing it’s just lovely; as many voices combined it gives me chills and such a…

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a holistic approach which means that it treats…

How should I think about pain?

The way you think about and respond to pain and discomfort in your body can make a big difference in how long it sticks around. A lot of my clients come in with pain in their body. Low back aching, tension in the neck and shoulders, sore feet and legs, tired and arthritic hands. I have clients that come in who are really mad that their pain is higher on the left side when, clearly,…

When thoughts take over: A dialogue with my head

Something I’ve learned over the years is: If I’m feeling it/thinking it/doing it, then others must be, too. So here’s my honest train of thought this morning before and during my spin class, and how I got over my negative self-talk and won the day. 6am. My alarm buzzes on my wrist and I groan inwardly, knowing I signed up for a 7:15 spin class. This means I have to leave at 6:45. Already I’m…
