Feel “Good Enough” For The Holidays & Always

A client came to me and said, “It’s all downhill from here.  With the candy in the house and the signs of the holidays around the corner, I’m doomed.  I never end up feeling good about myself. Ever.” She got me thinking: this is supposed to be the season of celebration and joy, yet so […]
