Maria’s Sunday Paper: Making Time for What You Value Most

This week was a good time to think about what you value in your life. France's President Emmanuel Macron delivered an impassioned speech to Congress this week about what he values and what he believes in. Hearing him speak got me thinking about my own beliefs and values. “Our stronge...

I’ve Been Thinking … Self Care in Troubling Times

You Are Not Going Crazy Since the early 1990s, when I started working with people dealing with acute stress and post-traumatic issues, the most frequently asked question I hear is, “Hey Doc, am I crazy?” In reassuring someone that his or her responses are appropriate for having survived o...

I’ve Been Thinking … Making Authentic Connections

Maria’s Sunday Paper: Finding a ‘Yippee!’ Moment in Every Day

A profoundly simple idea came to me last weekend. It came way before I watched the Comey interview. Way before the Time 100 list came out. Way before Jeff Bezos told us how many Amazon Prime customers there actually are. (OMG.) The idea came to me as I was sitting in conversation with ...

Maria’s Sunday Paper: Feeling Anxious? Find Where You Belong…

I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately about belonging. It’s not something I recall thinking about much when I was a child. At that time, I knew where I belonged, and who I belonged to. (Although I must say, there were times I wondered how I ended up in the family that I did, haha.) Bu...
