Empowered Dating: Loving Yourself, Having a Blast, & Treasuring What’s Important

What does it really mean to be empowered? Confident. Secure. Self-assured. Yes, but also striving, learning, seeking to grow. And even more than that, there can be vulnerability in empowerment.

Shortly after the holidays there is an uptick in people seeking therapy in NYC for anger management.

Wedding Day Yoga Leads to Bliss

This week I celebrated my wedding on the beach.  My husband and I were married privately 6 months prior, and had decided we wanted to create a special beach wedding celebration with close friends and family.  The thought was that it would be “easy” carefree and “simple” to host a gathering for 70 close friends.
