It was 1986 - My dad and I were watching the launch of Space Shuttle Challenger from the basement of our Brooklyn home. Seventy-three seconds into its flight, Challenger exploded, killing her seven crew members- including Christa McAuliffe – the first teacher in space. At just six-years-old, I had n...

There are two basic coping strategies: Reactive coping (meaning that the coping response follows the stressor) and proactive coping (whereby the coping response precedes the stressor in an attempt to neutralize future stressors). The idea is to develop proactive coping strategies so that when Life d...

December has always been one of those months that I take stock. I review the past year in my head. I think about if I am where I thought I would be last year. Or where I thought I would be at the beginning of the upcoming year. 

This year, I'll be turning the BIG 4-0. Forty is scary enough...but when...

Chronic illness and chronic pain are synonymous with loss. As chronic illness sufferers, we seem always to be "letting go" of something- careers, friendships, hobbies, activities, life trajectories, hopes, dreams, etc., etc., etc. #soannoying

Anxiety is horrible on its own, but when you're suffering from chronic illness and/or chronic pain...well...it just sucks a little bit more.  Sadly, the good news is, you're not alone! In fact, anxiety and chronic pain go hand-in-hand. In a study published in 2014 by PLOS One entitled "...

For better or worse, I couldn't help thinking how much further I would be if I had known some of the things I know now about chronic illness. So, in an attempt to prevent you from some of the pitfalls of being "new" to chronic pain and/or chronic illness...I compiled a list.

We're survivors. Fighters. Overcomers. Victors. Life-givers. We are, woman after all. You have miscalculated our pliability, our strength, our mental and emotional intelligence. You have unknowingly and unwittingly empowered us. Bringing us together, reminding us of our unbelievable strength, ou...

First and foremost, I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and your holiday season is off to a great start. 

Now that we're in full swing of the holidays, every commercial you see, every catchy headline and article you read, every music station you listen to (if you still do that sort of thing), ev...

Have you ever thought...whose &*#&$?! life is this...because it's NOT mine?! You know the moments - when you look around and things are so surreal that NOTHING looks familiar - nothing feels familiar. Sometimes, it comes with the good - walking across the graduation stage, reciting your wedding vows...

The following blog post was written for Dr. Veronica Anderson who reached out to me  last week and asked if we would like to write a guest blog post discussing my journey with an illness, injury or traumatic life event and how this journey has shaped me and the way I practice! 

Though this...

My ex nicknamed me, "Sweet Girl." It wasn't ironic or sarcastic..it was sincere. I was a happy, kind, thoughtful, innocent wife. I loved my life. I had a close-knit group of college friends that were all, my "best friends," I was building a successful career, I was a hopeful, loving newlywed, I was...

s a decade-long chronic pain sufferer, I can bet most of my earthly possessions that you know down to the very last, exasperated, mumbling  "You've GOT to be kidding me?!" plea to the Universe moment in the final act of your Shakespearean "trage-day" (see what I did there?),...

Louie came into my life 14-years ago as a 2-pound pipsqueak with an attitude 10x his size. He "had me at hello" and, because of that fact - a fact he seemed oddly aware of... for a puppy - he quickly trained me. Yep, you read that right. Nevertheless, Louie stole my heart and I happily all...
