Mindful Matters

Fear: always keeps me from writing. The fear of expressing what I have to say.. not knowing if it’s ok to write or if anyone wants to listen and if I even have anything worth saying.
I’ve found that in the moments I step into my fears I feel release.
I allow myself to step into the power of who I am, who I want to be, and almost grasping the potential of who I can be.
I remind myself to breathe and allow.
Take a moment...a few...

Over the years, I have been given the incredible opportunity to work and study one of life’s most elusive and complex topics: Love. Through my own experience and through the lenses offered by clients, I have significantly evolved my understanding of it. Though there are many more lessons still to learn, I can now look at love from an alternate perspective. One that is not simply from the other side of a therapy sofa, but somet...

Contrary to the popular societal belief that defines intimacy as a sense of physical and emotional closeness and connection with another human being, I have come to believe that intimacy is in fact, first and foremost, a process of profound self-discovery and deep understanding of our own psyche and soul.

The lack of intimacy is at the heart of our addictions, fears, and many of our emotional pains. Whether we can recognize the...

It’s basically been ingrained in us: men and women are not only different, but they also come from different planets!

Variations of this idea, popularized by John Gray’s Men are from Mars, Woman are from Venus, are peppered throughout popular culture. Stand-up comedians routinely devote humorous -and sometimes offensive- monologues to this topic. Just last weekend, for instance, I saw a performance in which a female comedian se...

Valentine’s Day is a remembrance of the love and value we feel for our significant others. As we raise awestruck eyebrows in wonder of this, we often forget that love for others begins with the ability to love and value ourselves.

In light of the aforementioned, the following questions beg to be answered:

What do you value most?  Is it your career, profession or business, or even your bank account? How do you measure your worth?...

          The holiday period is a great time to reflect on your relationship. This is because during the season, we often take time to look back on the previous or past years. Sometimes couples get so caught up during the year with financial, work, or family stress related issues that arise that they forget that the foundation of the family is built on the connection of the couple. If you are looking for wa...

How are you defining your manhood? How is this definition affecting you, your relationships and your sex life?

As I work with many men in my practice, I commonly observe feelings of inadequacy that stem from not being connected to their true sense of self.  Part of this comes from trying to find this “self” by examining external factors they expect will bring them happiness, joy, and love.  I see this in both career-oriented...

As the year ends and resolutions start up with the New Year, many singles find themselves hopeful that perhaps this will be the year in which they finally meet someone special. Many singles are ready to start putting themselves out into the dating world again. How you approach finding a partner and, more importantly, how you engage in relationships, can increase your successes in dating and make a huge difference the outcome o...

The Intimacy Conundrum
In honour of Orgasm Day, we are talking about one of the most important and least understood parts of human intimacy – the orgasm. Before saying “Happy Orgasm Day!” I want to mention that anxiety about orgasms, or climaxes as they’re sometimes called, can be a lack of intimacy between partners. The common sexual problems entail rapid or premature ejaculation, low sexual desire as well as pain during inte...

Without analyzing some of our choices at a deeper level, we sometimes fail to see how self-imposed beliefs limit us from accessing our true potential. As familiar as they are, they can often block opportunities, success and attain the happiness we deserve. These beliefs are based on a set of ideas that we’ve been developing our entire life, sometimes even perfecting them to be completely unsuccessful. Our beliefs come from a l...
