Most of us encounter the world around us with ease and enthusiasm. We are able to take in and process unexpected conversations, tune out the sounds of busy life, and enjoy a wide variety of new smells and tastes. But what if the senses you rely on so heavily for these experiences fail or mislead you?
You know that awesome feeling of excitement that happens on October 1? Before you can even order your first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season there's a Christmas tree set up in your neighborhood Target. There's a Fall Festival every weekend!!

Sometimes there are weeks where everything that could go wrong, does go wrong (you may swear Mercury is in retrograde). Other weeks it may seem like things are smooth-sailing, and you wonder what you’ll talk about in session.
Here are 3 tips for making the most of your time in your next therapy session, regardless of how your week has gone.
We’re fast approaching that time of back to school shopping for clothes, school supplies, backpacks, and the list goes on. Our focus shifts from summer fun to starting school again.

As parents, here are some ways you can ease your child’s anxiety at this time of transition into the school year.
Summer is around the corner, kids can’t wait- they are counting down until the last day of school. Kids view summer as fun, fun and more fun. Summer is meant to be a time for relaxation and fun, but for most kids too much free time can be problematic. Keeping children in a routine is key, as it enhances accountability and promotes self-control.
