A new definition of couple’s therapy

Monday, April 7th, 2008

I was thinking of you….

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

One of the major issues that couples face is how they communicate what they want and what they need.  Some do it quite well.  Some do it quite poorly complete with mega-conflicts, and at times, ugly incidents.  Others don’t do it at all.  They choose to just work on  the “you know” principle–that is my […]

You Cannot Have A Rainbow without A Storm

Friday, February 8th, 2008

During the holiday season I was blessed to get a new book by Charles Grodin entitled  If I only knew then…  The gist of the book is that friends of Charles Grodin, actors, actresses, politicians etc. described a situation in which they made a mistake. They then added  what they learned from that mistake. One person, […]

As the holiday season rolls upon us,  I thought I would give some thoughts, ideas, and recommendations regarding  some of my favorite books about change.  Why write about this as we are steaming our way through December, you might ask?  Is this some cheesy way to get out of writing about something new? Well yes….and… no.  Sure who wants to […]

On Saturday Night after winning the Middleweight title,  boxer Kelly Pavlik, in a post fight interview, was asked, “what were you thoughts after almost getting knocked out in round 2?’  He stated “sh*t it’s going to be a long night!!!!” We’ve all had days like this.  In fact, after my own recent  fiasco’s with electricians, […]
