2 Minute Doodle Teaching - Relational Repair
Repair in Relationships
Join the little doodle characters as they explain the importance of honoring the timing of both yourself and the other person as you seek to repair a recent relational rupture.
A disagreement, fight, or misunderstanding is to be expected in our most important relationships. This is a relational rupture. A rupture can also be unintentional as with a preoccupied parent, a partner that is looking at their phone when they say their listening to you, or a friend that forget…
Being a "good enough" parent to your inner child

Do you ever stop and listen to the negative words you say to yourself? Do you notice how you feel after another glass of wine? Do you force yourself to show up at social events that you would rather not go to?
These are just some examples of how your inner world may be giving you clues on what they need, and don't need. With parts work we are learning to re-parent ourselves and to really listen to our internal reac…
We're "under construction" when we do Inner Work
As we do our own Inner Work it is important that we create an environment that feels supportive and nurturing as we uncover, grow and heal.
I like to think of it like building the safe construction site to do the work in.
Explore what you need in that environment? Who you need on your construction team? What tools or comfort items need to be readily available?
We are all a work in progress and the more we can build our strong and kind foundation the deeper the work we can do.
Thank you for b…
Our Body as A Barometer During Difficult Conversations
Staying in a difficult conversation can feel very challenging. Our bodies are wired to alert us of any potential threat and when we are in a heated conversation with a co-worker, discussing an important topics with a loved one, or exploring a delicate subject with our teenager our body may be trying to tell us to ABORT THE CONVERSATION RIGHT NOW!
Leaning into a difficult conversation we can learn to read our own internal body signals as signs to where we may be closed off, have some inner work …
It's Time We Look at Our Own Baggage!
We ALL have Baggage! We just do. There's no escaping it really. We grow up in relationship, with our caregivers, teachers, friends, relatives, and we get wounded. Wounds create baggage.

Noise is Everywhere! 4 tips for auditory overload.
I notice sound.
I have always noticed sounds.
Therefore, I believe, sound naturally surrounds me. From mantle clocks I was placed under as an infant, to peacocks running wild and squawking around my childhood home. To choices I’ve made in my life that have included sounds such as living under a flight path for LAX or by a freeway. Sound is always with me.
Even when I have the well thought out intention to avoid noise, it finds me. For example, in my current suite of offices, I intentionally c…
One of THOSE days... finding that inner compassionate voice.
Do you ever have one of those days…
Either it feels that nothing goes right, there’s just too much to do, or everything you say comes out wrong.
We might start the day feeling very optimistic, “Today will be a good day!” And if you’re anything like me, some mishap occurs within the first few minutes of waking up… “Ugh! The toilet paper roll is empty?” “I spilled my coffee… again.” Life is riddled with small little incidents that can throw us off course. If we let them.
