When life presents us with challenging experiences people frequently ask, “What should I tell the children?” My answer is always, “... the truth.” However, information must be conveyed at a developmentally appropriate level. For instance, young children don’t need to hear every detail of what’s happened. That may only confuse and upset them—and likely cause them greater distress.

Life on the Mental Level
We have between 12,000 - 50,000 thoughts per day and the energy behind our thoughts has a profound effect on our bio-psycho-social reality. Conscious thoughts and deep rooted beliefs help create realities in the physical world. At Life Dr. we focus on what is and what's positive! Quantum physics - attempting to explain the unexplainable; the collective unconscious, neuro-science, neuro-chemistry and our neurological system. Let's celebrate our miraculous brain.
Physical Life & the Body
An exploration of home: our amazing body and it's systems. How it works and what it needs. Inner & outer. Our physical environments. What we do in the world ...our actions vs. our intentions and aligning the two. A balance of what we want vs. what we need. Everything tangible. How 'dis-ease' impacts our body causing illness and discomfort. Spotlight on self-care and physically manifesting what we want inside and out!
Life on the Spiritual Level
When we explore the deeper connection between our internal and external environments, we become more conscious of our own power, our personal responsibility and how our lives are improved by acting with intention. Karma, conscious living, and the bond to spirit, the collective unconscious and a higher power. It's an energy and it's POSITIVE!
Life on the Emotional Level
There is a lot of confusion about the difference between our feelings (happy, sad, fearful, angry), and our emotions. Feelings are more universally felt in nature and circumstance, while our emotions are an expression of the personality and what we put out in the world. Emotions are the tension between our inside world and the outside world. They're our 'reactions' towards someone or something, and usually involve our ego.
Exploring our Emotional Life means tuning in to how we are feeling: inside ourselves, within our different environments, as well as with the people we choose to have in our lives. Our commitment to activities and behaviors that provide: a sense of accomplishment, creative outlet, or some sense of purpose or support, enhances our well-being and the well-being of others.
The dynamics of a healthy relationship begin with you! When we feel comfortable with who we are, know our value and that we're worthy of love, we love and value others. Let's explore personal, family and professional relationships. What it means to 'trust'. Heart-centered, authentic communication. Needs, boundaries and the importance of listening. Sex vs. sensuality. Inner & outer relationships with ourselves, the global community, and to things, like money.
Natural Gourmet & Nutrition
Everything food! Recipes-for-life, meal planning and preparation, urban gardening, farm-to-table, life-enhancing seasonal foods. The science of healthy whole foods and their nutritional benefits, using food-as-medicine and a bit of history, the use of supplements, greens, natural, organic, wild, grass-fed, raw and more!
A healthy life is a life in balance and so much more than exercising, eating & sleeping well. Let's explore the connection between our internal and external environments and consciously create a life of passion & purpose. We can learn to be our best-selves and live our best-lives at home, with friends & family, at work and on a global level. It's possible to feel nourished by environments that feel good to us, and to experience health, wellness and abundance in every area of your life. Let's explore healthy living from the inside-out!

Life-Tips and Quotes
My personal Life-Tips and Quotes all in one place! What are some of your favorites? Here is one of mine by someone who has inspired me:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
~ Marianne Williamson - A Return to Love
