May is Mental Health Month: Book Giveaway


To celebrate May is Mental Health Awareness Month, I'm offering a Book Giveaway at Goodreads. 

My award-winning book "Sometimes When I'm Sad" is a gentle and supportive story about pediatric sadness. In the United States alone, evidence suggests that up to 1% of babies, 4% of preschool-aged children, 5% of school-aged children, and 11% of adolescents meet the criteria for major depression. Reading about sadness in little ones can help children and adults recognize the symptoms early and reduce the onset of a depressive disorder.

Audiobook: The Ninth Session by Deborah Serani

 


The moment psychotherapy changes your life.

Dr. Alicia Reese takes on a new patient. Lucas Ferro suffers with crippling anxiety, and as sessions progress, he begins to share the reasons why he's struggling. As Ferro's narrative becomes more menacing, Reese finds herself wedged between the cold hard frame of professional ethics and the integrity of personal truth. And, finally, when Ferro reveals his secrets, Reese learns how far she's willing to go, willing to risk and willing to lose to do the right thing.

Creating a Mindful Bath

 


Mindfulness is a new term for an old experience: conscious awareness.

 When we engage in being mindful, we try to get in touch with the textures of our inner thoughts and feelings—as well as the outer experiences we feel in the world.

Immersion, an experience that heightens your awareness but also offers relaxation, is an ideal way to practice mindfulness. Be it a quiet walk in the rain. Yoga. Meditation. Breathing deeply before you wake up or go to bed. When you want a moment to relax and be mindful, taking a warm bath can be a great tool to add to your mindfulness repertoire.

January is National Mentoring Month

January is National Mentoring Month, where we celebrate mentors and the power of helping others.

Being a mentor means offering guidance and hope. And there are few relationships in life that are more influential than those between a mentor and a young person. 

I've had many mentors in my life growing up. A person who took a unique interest in me, fostered my growth and guided me onward.

I've also been a mentor to many. The experience has been so rewarding and meaningful to me. In fact, research shows that mentoring is an extraordinary experience for all involved.

Be mentor.

Change a life.


And transform your own.
