In The News!

A collection of articles and blog posts that feature me. I’ve had the privilege to be quoted by journalists and asked to guest blog. A lot of articles like this tend to give advice or maybe a different perspective. So while reading these posts will give you some insight into my ideas, I’m certainly less directive in therapy sessions. And none of these posts will be tailored to your needs, the way therapy would be. But if you’d like to read how other folks have quoted me or my posts on other sites, I’ve collected them here for you.

I’ll be collecting links here and updating this post when something new comes along.
