You Are What You Read

Choose carefully, read wisely.

Giving Up "The Gift"

To maximize your talents and abilities, focus less on how special they are, and more on your enjoyment of developing them, and yourself.

Why I Sing

What drives you to express yourself? Often, the joy and passion that once started us on our creative journeys get covered over by fear and perfectionism. It's time to let that go.

The Triple Threat

In the Broadway world, the coveted 'triple threat' of being able to dance, sing, and act is not as hard to accomplish as one might think. Mentally, it is another matter entirely.

Finding Fulfillment

Fulfillment and success aren't the result of reaching certain goals. They come from the mindset you have on the journey.

We Are What We Speak

If you want to improve the quality of your life and creative expression, take a close look at your words and thoughts.

Making a Real Difference

Helping others, making the difference in the lives of those we serve, requires more than our best efforts. It requires all of who we are.

Making the Choice to Care

Self-sacrifice and self-fulfillment need not be opposites. In the right frame of mind, they become one and the same, and a gateway to a life truly well lived.

The Importance of Rest

Getting adequate rest has become a priority in our household. Because without proper sleep, we are unable to be our best in our work, for each other, and most importantly, for our precious son.

The Gift of Acceptance

Accepting what has happened in the past is the key to peace of mind and success in every area of our lives. Unfortunately, many of us refuse to do so.


Refusing to forgive someone is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to get sick.

The Benefits of Yes and No in Creativity

Establishing strategies for how to best handle your email and other interactions is important if you want to get anything accomplished.

First, Do The Work

I can’t tell you how many people I work with whose biggest obstacle is that they simply haven’t done the work. Take it from me: there’s no point in spending hundreds of dollars on coaching you may not yet be able to integrate. First, become prepared to the best of your ability.

Enough Celebrity Bashing!

Enough with holding everyone but ourselves to impossible standards. We each have too little time on this planet to spend it criticizing people who are doing what they love, and doing their best.

The Truth About Becoming A Parent

Becoming a parent is a tremendous experience. Yet it is also a difficult and terrible challenge. One doesn't come without the other; let's do every future mom and dad a favor and be sure to talk about both.

Accepting Responsibility

Owning that you might have had a hand in creating what’s happening in the world around you doesn’t mean that you’re to blame for everything that’s going on. Rather, it means that you’re mature enough to realize that only by claiming responsibility for your life can you live it in a way that both empowers you and brings you closer to others.
Facebook as a Tool of Self-Discovery

Facebook as a Tool of Self-Discovery

In addition to what we both clamor and hesitate to share online, noting our strong reactions to the postings and profiles of others give us an opportunity to see ourselves more clearly.

The Art of Surrender

When we replace resistance with surrender, we lose neither control nor ourselves. Rather, we are given the clarity and tools that enable us to manage change powerfully, regardless of how radical or even traumatic it may be.

Information Versus Action

Of course people need and benefit from acquiring new information and specific tool sets. Yet that information—any information—only becomes useful when we implement it.

The Pregnancy Perspective

As Mother's Day approaches, I am humbled and awed by the lessons of partnership and parenthood, including the often under appreciated gifts of selflessness.

The Good News

Watching the news will make you think the world is a terrible place. It isn’t.

The Perils of Intentions and Expectations

Exceptional and enduring success, in any area of life, comes only once we set our pride and insecurities aside– as well as the ineffective expectations and attachments that so often stem from them– and become willing to learn, partner, and co-create with others. When we do, the results speak, and often sing, for themselves.

The Good News About a Bad Review

The desire to look good, have people like us, and be successful often holds us back from taking the brave and bold steps through failure that will in fact lead to our greatest accomplishments.

A Positive Take on Losing Weight

You are so much more than a body could ever contain. Know this, and an extraordinary relationship with your body– as well as with your true self– finally becomes possible.

The Art of Being Musical

Dance with abandon. Sing at the top of your lungs. Stop thinking about how you look or sound. Instead, express yourself as if your life depends on it. Because—in very real and important ways—it does.

The Gift of Music

It is surrender—of perfection, of expectation, of resistance—that allows learning at every level and in every area to become joyful, and as a result, effective.

The Ethics of Scheduling

There is a trend to place the economic interests and functional concerns of practitioners and insurance companies above the therapeutic needs and rights of the people our industry is ethically bound to serve.

50 Shades of Concern

Violence might be ‘hot’ in the book. But it is not hot in reality. And I am very, very concerned.

The Corporate Artist

While singers and performers often struggle with how to best relate to the art with which they’re engaged full time, those in the corporate world tend to long for a relationship with creativity they’ve either never had, or gave up in order to get a ‘real job’.

Control = Resistance

Reality check: you cannot change a situation or circumstance when you’re in the process of resisting it. Just as you can’t catch a beach ball if you’re holding another one in your hands, you can’t embrace something new until you let go of the old, stale, and painful reasons for and arguments about why things are the way they are.
