Spicing Up Your Sex Life!

Posted by Deborah Fox, M.S.W. on Feb 13, 2020 3:10:22 PM

Sex - where did it go and why? 

What the heck happened to us?? We used to have sex so much more, and now . . . . 

The sexual connection in many a relationship is the first to founder under any stress or tension. Couples find themselves bickering. They enjoy each other's company less. And they don't make the connection that their lackluster sexual activity is a huge part of the problem.

Many people with a healthy level of desire find themselves more irritable and prone to temper flare-ups when they’re sexually frustrated. A malaise sets in, having an insidious effect on the overall relationship. At best, relationships become more like business partnerships. Or one in which partners are often in each other's presence, but not connecting with each other.

Procrastination - Mind the Gap

Posted by Michelle Bohls, LMFT, EMDR, CGP on Jan 23, 2020 5:26:07 PM

Procrastination has become a dirty word in an economy built on productivity, product life cycles, and publication deadlines. We may admit we procrastinate in that flippant, self-deprecating way without filling in too many of the ugly details. 

Procrastinating on really big projects like fixing up the house makes sense or a dissertation. That is perfecting understandable, but when we’re struggling to clean the cat box, get our kid to the dentist, or change the oil in our car --- not so much.

What to do When Anxiety Strikes - Tips and Tools

Posted by Stacy Bremner, MA, RP on Sep 28, 2019 10:19:02 PM

Anxiety is a normal human occurrence, and part of the challenge is to understand and accept that anxiety is normal. We tend to panic about panic!

In this Blog you'll discover many effective tools and practices to help you feel less anxious, and feel more peaceful and empowered.  It's a necessity to put energy and consistent effort into practices to help you manage your anxiety. If we don’t practice, our brain stays the same and we remain the same.

I recently read a quote from HEADSPACE which said, “It’s amazing to think how much time we spend looking after our physical health and how little we spend looking after the health of the mind.” I find this true for many people. However, I'm one of those people who has chosen to place a lot of time and energy into feeling better.  My favorite tool is journaling. Consistent use of journaling has changed my life, and I use others as well. I'm hoping you'll also find tools that help you on your journey to managing anxiety well.

Are You in a Relationship Dance?

Posted by Kim Saft, PhD, LCSW, Certified Imago Relationship Therapist on Aug 25, 2019 11:11:00 AM

Does it sometimes feel like you and your partner are doing a dance and stepping on each other’s toes? Are you feeling frustrated by your partner and getting in conflicts?

Have you ever asked yourself, “Why is my partner doing things that make me so annoyed?" What you might be surprised to learn is that what annoys you about your partner actually says more about you than him.
