So much of the work I do is influenced by the work of others.  The people below are just a few of them.  Their work has influenced me in my own personal growth and the work I do with my own clients.  I am happy to share them with you.

What is the best way to ease someone's pain and suffering? In this beautifully animated RSA Short, Dr Brené Brown reminds us that we can only create a genuine empathic connection if we are brave enough to really get in touch with our own fragilities.

Shame is an unspoken epidemic, the secret behind many forms of broken behavior. Brené Brown, whose earlier talk on vulnerability became a viral hit, explores what can happen when people confront their shame head-on. Her own humor, humanity and vulnerability shine through every word.

The renowned marriage expert explains how trust may be the most vital ingredient to a successful relationship.

Dr. Sue Johnson is a relationship expert. She helps to identify warning signs in your marriage and what you can do to prevent issues from destroying your relationship.
