Life can be challenging sometimes. (You’re thinking, “Thank you, Madam Obvious.”) Sometimes the challenges are huge, and sometimes it’s just every day life. I’d like to share something that I’m working on which is helping me deal with the little, pesky, every day stuff. That’s focus. Bear with me a moment. I know we hear a lot about focus, presence, mindfulness, etc. I definitely think in this fast paced, information overload culture we need more of it. But I’d like to share my focus, that is, F-O-C-U-S. F is for, well, focus. That means prioritizing the things in your life. What is most important to you now? Family? Friends? Finances? What energizes you, encourages you, excites you? What mo

Brewing Hope - Let's talk about money

Ellen notes that one of her sex therapy professors said as much in class – “I’m completely comfortable talking about sex. Money, not so much.” So let’s talk about money. (photo credit Mikesh Kaos) A common question we hear (though not always to our faces) is: “Why is therapy so expensive?” (So common there are over two million hits on a Google search).
