Tom Cruise’s character in Jerry Maguire pleads with his client, Rod “Help me. Help you.” I am reaching out to you, my community of readers, to do the same. Please help me, help you. I launched this blog with the intention of adding value to your lives and making a significant difference outside of my private practice’s confidential setting. My vision is to make my website more relevant and engaging and I need your help.
Over the past thirty years I have treated adolescents and adults with post-traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, self-destructive behaviors, eating disorders, difficult transitions and complicated losses. I have also coached clients who were not necessarily encumbered with these challenges, and have helped them move forward in pursuit of their goals and dreams.
My wish at this time in my life as a senior psychologist and coach is to address the issues and concerns in your lives that are most meaningful to you.
Every one of us has dealt with some of the darker aspects of life. Some of us are fortunate enough to receive needed love and support during these difficult times. Others do not have these support systems quite where we need them to be. Whether you do or do not, there is always room for a deeper connection and understanding around the challenges in our lives. I encourage you to dig deep and tap into the areas in which you might need some help and answers.
Your comments by email, by phone, on my website and elsewhere have been fabulous. Still, I’ve been wanting to ramp up the relevance of my blog posts and make them come alive for you.
So I’m asking you to “Help me. Help you.” Tell me what subjects I can write about that would really add value to your life.

I love your site and receiving your newsletters. I appreciate that you would like to hear feedback from your readers. Personally, I often struggle with the many transitions that I face in my life. My wish is that I will one day be able to reduce the stress I feel when I transition from one thing to the next, so that I can enjoy the benefits of the new opportunity sooner. In my industry, change happens quickly and often, and I don’t always want to be the last one on board. I look forward to hearing even more in depth about adjustment and transitions!
I really relate to the above comment! Thanks Randy, this site is really wonderful. Glad to have your work in the upcoming edition.
Thanks Dana and Anonymous. I do think transitions are difficult. It’s important to learn how to move through the changes we encounter in our lives with as little turmoil as possible. The only real constant in our lives oddly enough is “change.” I will be happy to add more stories and depth to some effective ways of being resilient in the face of transitions. Resilience is actually a skill that you can improve by learning some strategies and with regular practice.
