12 Years 12 Summers

We made it to summer. Kids are celebrating the end of the school year and as a parent, you may be counting down the days until school starts again. And some parents may be sending their child to school for the first time in the fall. Either way, there are precious few of these summers we get with our children. We only have a limited amount of time to instill the lessons and knowledge they need to learn before venturing out on their own.


Bike Safe this Summer

One of the great joys of summer for both kids and adults alike is bike riding. We are lucky to not only live in a community is not only easy to bike, but we also have the North Coast Inland Trail and the Reservoir. Bike riding is a great way to stay active and a fun summer activity the whole family can enjoy.

Turning 18

For more than a decade I have developed therapeutic relationships with adolescents and their families. I have witnessed the transition from childhood to adolescence and adolescence to adulthood. I have supported parents through the emotional roller coasters and engaged in many discussions with adolescents as developmental milestones are achieved. In my experience, transition to adulthood on the 18th birthday is influential on the entire family’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. The expectations and response that a family has during this time develops the foundation for adulthood.

Men: Stay Healthy at Any Age

Men, it’s never too early or too late to start caring about your health. Men die an average of 5 years younger than women and lead 9 out of 10 of the top causes of death. They also have a higher suicide death rate and do not see physicians for a physical exam as often as women.

Embracing Differences

The other day my youngest son patiently waited for me to finish painting my nails so that I could apply the same to his toes. This was not the first time he requested to have his nails done. He absolutely loves to pick out fun colors and patterns and show them off to others. Once complete, his face beams with joy and he is so excited to show it off. I love to see him so happy. To see him experience such joy in such a simple thing makes my own heart happy.
