With the holiday season upon us and with many unexpected monkey wrenches thrown in my path recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about trying to do it all. I have some news for you: it’s impossible.
It’s two weeks until Thanksgiving and I can feel the collective tension mixed with excitement and anxiety as we all begin to prepare ourselves for the upcoming holiday season.

I’m here to tell you that it may be layered and deep rooted but finding your happiness doesn’t have to be as complicated as it seems. Here are some ways I help clients improve their levels of happiness everyday.
