Interview with Best Selling Author and Couple’s Therapist, Harville Hendrix

Some people may find it odd that I, a woman in my 30’s, who has never been married choices a couple’s therapist as one of my greatest idols. His name is Harville Hendrix, PhD. He is the author of the bestselling book, “Getting the Love You Want” and co- founder of Imago Therapy that was developed  with his wife (equally dynamic and inspiring) Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD. He has been featured on the Oprah Show several times and made Oprah’s list of TOP 20 Unforgettable Shows. Harville’s passion for his work comes from personal experiences, appreciation for loving energy, and an understanding of the importance of connectivity.  Last month I had the great pleasure of interviewing Harville. As I listened to his kind, warm voice, (The kind of voice you imagine for the narrative of an endearing children’s story!) I was inspired to share his words and mission with everyone. He understands the importance of “focused connectiveness,” not just for intimate couples but as a means to heal and help relationships and communities of the world come together for the better good. read more »

What is EMBR?

Life is full of possibilities and opportunities. With social media, we now live in global communities. We are not limited by size of local community or lack of information.  The greatest challenge comes from determining who you are and what is important to you –finding the “thing” that inspires you to get up every day and do what you.  The good news is once you do that, it makes it so much easier to process new information. Part of this process is to understand your strengths and weaknesses. You also need to know; who will you need to connect to in order to fulfill your goals. What experts will you need to enlist? What kind of mentor would be inspiring to you? How will you articulate your dreams and connect that to what other people understand? read more »

Relationship and Social Trend Predictions for 2010

I am sure the internet will be full of financial, technological, and global affairs/issues predictions so I will not bother speaking about things that other people are way more informed than I to speak on. What I will talk about is relationships and social communication trends. There is a long list of reasons as to how and why I have become so tuned in and passionate about social shifts and how they are affecting our relationships. I do not share my thoughts with you because I am particular fond of worry or doom and gloom. I simply believe a little awareness goes a long way and the result of actions based on awareness, creates more opportunity for positive impact. read more »

Connecting is Better than Networking.

There is difference between connecting and networking. If you don’t believe me reflect on how you feel when you experience each one. The networking experience might bring up thoughts of events where you sport the infamous “Hello my name is” sticker while trying to figure out what you need to say to whom, carefully avoiding people who seem determined to sell you something on approach. A connecting experience might bring up thoughts of moments when you knew someone understood you, where you felt comfortable to trust and forge a relationship with them. Another difference between the two might be speed: Networking seems to be approached with speed where connecting takes some time. read more »

Customer Service: Forget the Top, Aim for the Middle.

If I was to recap three conversations from last week I would probably be inclined to share the less than pleasant ones I had with the post office, an eBay seller, and a retail store clerk. This blog post could turn into a “gripe-fest” if I did, so I have opted out of recapping those conversations. Instead, I tried to reflect positively on them. What can I learn? What could I have done better to resolve issues of unfavorable service? read more »
