Two Meaningful Messages About Beauty

inspirational videos about beauty

Almost every client I work with (and sometimes myself) struggles with shame and doubt about their appearance.  These videos (by two of my favorite Hollywood women, Lupita N'yong'o and Amy Poehler) help remind me to use self-compassion when I struggle to see beauty in the mirror.  I hope they will for you too!

Keeping Romance Alive in Parenthood

desire after having kids

jenniferThis week's blog is from Jennifer Kogan, LICSW.  Jennifer offers solution-focused, evidence-based individual and couple counseling in Washington, DC. Learn how to shift your thinking and behavior so you feel more engaged and connected to yourself and those you care about. With more than eighteen years of experience, Jen believes that we are all doing the best we can and that sometimes we just need a little help.

Ever look at the person you married and ask yourself, “What happened to us? We used to be so close and feel so connected.” Being one half of a couple with kids can feel awfully lonely sometimes.

John and Julie Schwartz Gottman, authors of “And Baby Makes Three: The Six-Step Plan for Preserving Marital Intimacy and Rekindling Romance After Baby Arrives” (Crown, 2007), have been researching marital stability and divorce prediction for more than three decades. Their 2007 data revealed that 67 percents of couples expressed marital dissatisfaction during the first three years of their baby’s life.
