Blog Topics

Happy New Year to my readers!

Many of you have asked why there have been no postings since the summer of 2012. Well, my husband suffered a massive heart attack at the end of June and then in the fall, I had two major surgeries.  Unfortunately, both of these surgeries were followed with complications and healing was a slow and difficult process. Thanks to all the folks who have emailed your kind concern to me.

I am now much recovered and ready to get back on the blog. In fact, all of these experiences have caused me to rethink the next topic for the blog. Instead of anxiety, please watch this month for:       The Impact of Health/Illness on Life

 Sleep: The Yyy’s of Zzz’s

You could almost call it an out of body experience. Our subconscious takes over and transports us on a journey guided by our deepest emotions. Throughout this mysterious voyage, our conscious brain is wholly unaware of the world outside while locked within an inert body. In cyclic repetition, our bodies enter a temporary state of motor muscle atonia where a sort of paralysis takes over. For humans, this typically daily metamorphosis constitutes a third of a person’s entire life. more…

 

 

 So Tired and Can’t Sleep!

“Oh no, here we go again,” mentally surfaces as you lay your head on your pillow. The clock sits there ticking away minutes which may turn into hours while silently logging your inability to fall asleep. You’ve tried everything! Reading books, hot baths, reading books while in a hot bath, exercising early then exercising late, cutting out caffeine, cutting out evening alcohol, drinking herbal teas, turning off all lights, leaving a night-light on, watching TV, not watching TV, keeping the room cool, playing relaxing music, buying a new mattress, even journaling your tormented thoughts and still you want to scream, “I’m so tired and can’t sleep!” more…

Easily Distracted with Poor Memory or Perhaps Simply Short on Sleep??

I remember it was a clear crisp autumn day, which in my part of the world normally comes around the middle of November. I got a call from a mother of a 12 year old boy and she was frantic that her son “must be ADD or ADHD because he was continually distracted” and “his grades were suffering horribly with his poor memory skills.” I asked the mother, Mrs Nelson, how long her son had shown these symptoms. Her voice projected her drained emotions, “This is all brand new—I just don’t understand! Kyle’s never been like this before.” more…

Now before any of you imagines that the title of this blog is insinuating any reference to one of your body parts, let me set you straight. Across humankind universally, this organ is the top player for all of us with regards to sex. more…

 

 

 

Kiss, Kiss, Mount Up and Scream

To Be or To Do: That is the Question

How can a woman’s mind be her worst enemy when it comes to female orgasm? One of the best examples came to me from a young client I met years ago. Let’s call her Carin. more…

 

 

 

 

Female Orgasm: It’s Complicated

It would seem in this day and age of “anything goes” that not one more word is needed on the subject of female orgasm. Website after website, blog after blog, research data findings abound within news articles—all of this and yet not a word that makes complete sense to both women and men alike. At the end of all that can be found on the internet, questions remain unanswered and the mystery of female orgasm continues to be veiled in blurriness. None of these have discussed what I am about to tell you. more…

 

 

 

What’s THAT Got to Do With It?

I got the call initially from the wife, let’s call her Emma. “My husband and I would like to come see you about some sexual problems we are having,” she said flatly with clear detachment. Emma did not seem particularly eager to give me more details and with my busy schedule, I could wait until our meeting. more…

 

 

Sexy is as Sexy Feels

My search had been high and low and I felt grateful to have found the book. To get some understanding of the emotions needed for sex to take place on any given day—to widen the entire field of opportunity. Of course, you may be thinking, hey, all one needs is to be horny for sex to happen. And I am in complete agreement. more…
