Coming home to your self

I love coming home at the end of the day.

As I drive up to our brightly colored house, I enjoy our spring garden, with its wild apple tree in the middle, branches standing on end, going in all directions.  Our red door welcomes me home. Everything is so familiar and comfortable. I always like to take off my work clothes first—packing away my responsibilities as therapist, supervisor and colleague.  When I come downstairs, I have finally arrived.

Are we making it too easy for kids?

Today’s parents worry that their children have developed a whopping sense of entitlement. They demand and expect so much from their parents and the world around them! Many kids think that family meals are like going out to eat—they get to order what they want for dinner. Send it back if it’s not perfect! Read more about Are we making it too easy for kids?

In the early 1950’s, Dr. Neil Miller made a startling discovery. He found that laboratory animals could learn to decrease their blood pressure and heart rate. Basing his experiments on B.F. Skinner’s principles of “operant conditioning”, the animals received food or “positive reinforcement” whenever their heart rate of blood pressure went down. Soon, the animals learned how to control their vital signs. Read more about The mind can calm the body

Today, while visiting Barcelona, I wandered through Gaudi’s famous architectural wonder, La Sagrada Familia (The Holy Family). Conceived in the late 1800’s by Antoni Gaudi, Catalan architect, it has been under construction for over a century. It is still being built, but much of it is completed. Gaudi, a deeply religious man, created a vast sanctuary with columns made to look like tall trees, which hold up the ceiling of the church. The tops of the columns have edges that look like leaves.

How our expectations shape our experience

Eight years ago, I had major foot surgery. It was a very interesting experience — 3 hours in the OR, 3 days in the hospital, 10 weeks 100% non-weight bearing, and the surgeon told me, one year of recovery. I had never had any kind of surgery before, so needless to say, I was pretty anxious about the whole thing. Read more about How our expectations shape our experience

Seeing more in 3D

May 05, 2015

Early detection is the key to breast cancer survivorship. A screening mammogram is a low-dose X-ray used to evaluate a woman’s breast health. It helps doctors see whether there are any abnormalities or changes in the breast tissue that may need treatment. With this in mind, we are offering 3D mammography screenings in addition to 2D screenings.

What is a 3D mammography screening?
It’s an X-ray that takes multiple images of your breast tissue. The images are then converted to a 3D image that allows the radiologist to see the tissue in greater detail. Read more about Seeing more in 3D
