I am devoted to helping people become more of what is possible for them. My commitment, actually my passion, is to help people become more fully alive.

One limb of the tree of "PROCRASTINATION"

There are several limbs on this tree however the one most of us know about is" the fear of failure". You know the drill, what if I give a party and noboby comes etc.,what if I marry and it does not work out? From where I sit if we are over 21 we have all "failed" many times. We Know how to fail.The point of failing is to learn.from the experience, as it is our best teacher. We hardly ever learn when things are going well for us.  What if we reframed our so called failures as sucessful character building.

Life is a feast (but we have to choose we can’t have it all)

Sometimes like greedy little children if we can’t have it all we won’t play. It is important to realize that everything does not have the same priority or weight. Whatever we give our attention to takes time and time is not infinite, no matter how young one is or how invincible one feels. So to have a fuller more passionate life pick what is really important to you and go for it.  So choose, choose, choose! I’ll see you further down the road.

Different but equal

This morning on my walk, I visually searched for last week's cardinals that made me go aaah!
They were nowhere to be found!  Off seducing somebody else I imagine with their charismatic ways.
As it is with us humans we tend to clutch to the good experiences in life and I wanted to see them AGAIN!!!  As I kept searching, something interesting happened, I saw a bluebird, then another, and one more.
I went oooh!!

Fear of Change - Chapter 2

Fear of Change

... The way to build self confidence is to
start doing things you’re not sure
you can do….Like baking your
own bread. Like painting a picture
…Do it.  Seize the day and get started
and stay with it, and things will


Nature of Change - Intoduction


An old Hebrew proverb says “change takes but an instant.”  It is the resistance to change that can take a lifetime.  It is often said we resist change because it is difficult or painful.  This is not exactly accurate as it is our resistance to change that makes it so stressful.


Be willing to be a Beginner

Everyday I talk to clients about being willing to be a beginner.  I tell them be curious, learn something new. Alas, it is easier to teach than to do!  However here I am  beginning to learn how to use the computer full of hesitancy and resistance. So just for today I am working on my attitude . How about you ?  good luck to you . Let me hear how you are doing with your beginnings. Bye for now Laura

The Nature of Change

The Nature of Change - Laura B. Young

…this beginning has been quietly forming, waiting until you were ready to emerge.”  John O’Donohue

Spring with its new growth can bring to the fore the realization that everything we need is within us wanting to express in a fuller more meaningful way. It can therefore bring a renewed resolve, as well as the courage to change. Writing a book about change is my way of motivating and encouraging you to do what you know you want or need to do.

The Many Faces of Depression

In any given year more than 17 million Americans suffer from some type of depressive illness. Many symptoms are common to different kinds of depression and are present with different levels of intensity. It is important as mental health professionals we understand the origin and meaning of the person’s depression, and not label many states and experiences under a generic label.
