Love, Relationships & the Mind
With divorce rates rising at an alarming rate, we have to ask ourselves what went wrong?
Relating with members of the opposite sex can be frustrating and difficult, but it doesn’t have to be! Successful relationships begin in the mind - through the choices we make.

Social Media and The Mind
Today, most people can access vast amounts of information, yet few people know how to process this information and use it to be successful at school, work and life. We now have the world at our fingertips, yet, paradoxically, more and more of us live solitary, futile lives. Indeed, more and more of us, of all ages, prefer aimlessly scrolling through Instagram, Facebook, online shopping apps or random things on our smart phones or devices than just sitting and thinking. Although we are more connected, literally, we are more isolated than ever before. As a result, problems in schools, universities, corporations and institutions and people’s lives abound as we lose sight of the power that is in our minds.

Traumatic Brain Injury & Recovery: Tips, Tools and Resources
During my years in clinical practice, I saw many patients who suffered from traumatic brain injury (TBI). Unfortunately, many were told, by doctors, that they would never be on the same cognitive or functional level as before the accident. The dominant belief at the time was that the brain could not change. I was considered radical in my belief that the mind could change and heal the brain; however, I persisted in my research and the results were nothing short of miraculous. It was not easy; my patients worked long hours and pushed through tough challenges. Yet they chose to persist, which was a key factor in their healing. I am still asked for help in this area, and although this is a very complex and unique subject, I have listed some of my tools and techniques that I used in my practice and that you can find in my resources listed at the end.
