Dear Parents, and in this case, all fellow humans, This trench applies to us all. With life, comes loss. And while that can be tough to face or accept, life losses demand things of us. They demand that we feel a reaction to them, that we stretch ourselves to find meaning in them, and learn to adapt or grow around them in ways we hadn't anticipated …

Letter from the Trenches Dear Parents, Because you are parents, I know 100% that you've gone through some huge transitions and changes in your life.

Letter from the Trenches Dear Parents, You burnt out by any chance? Sick and tired of hearing people throw the "self care" term around as though you have time to kick off for 3 days at the spa?

Dear Parents, Yes, I'm a little nervous. I've agreed to pass the hosting mic to a colleague, friend and fellow momma who plans to chuck a bunch of personal questions my way. I've committed to answering from the heart in honour of the guests I've interviewed who have done just that for me. Seems only fair, I guess! If you're wondering about who the …
 
It can feel so much better, or easier when you're in the phase of expecting a baby, to just assume things will all "work out" between you and your partner as you transition from a couple to a family. The reality is that 2 out of 3 couples experiences a sharp increase in conflict and a sharp decrease in relationship satisfaction. It also has a huge …

I have a little story to tell you (and yes, I have my child's consent to share it here).

Letter from the trenches Dear couples, I’m stoked to share my current obsession, probably because it applies to the stage of life our family is in right now.

When the pandemic first hit, families put on their best armour and hunkered down. We were "in this together", determined and mostly unified. But then it wore on and on...and on, leaving us depleted, having to make complicated decisions about healthy limits and boundaries, and forcing us to see what we were capable of adjusting to. Parents have had …

And one t…

Anxiety begs us to change our environments so we can avoid the things we're anxious about. And the relief payoff when we do it is huge. No wonder it's just easier to keep moving things around so we can cope. But at what point does this just perpetuate the problem? As caregivers, we're having to assess and make moment to moment decisions about when …
 
I often have the saying, "Anxiety is contagious, but so is courage" on my office whiteboard because I think it's a great counter message to how clients with overwhelming anxiety think about it. Anxiety can spillover and cause otherwise calm and grounded caregivers to become hypervigilant and always ready for their kids to be overtaken by their fear…

A Letter from the Trenches Dear Parent, I’m having one of those surreal moments, where something I was slowly creating over the last number of months and seemed like a just a dream, has become Real!
