Seeing all of the Christmas decorations and Santa’s in the malls, kids running around being festive about the holiday season can leave you feeling overwhelmed and depressed.

Does Music Increase Substance Use?

I work at a facility that encourages our clients to listen to music as a coping skill.  We even have a group called Music Therapy where they listen to songs that inspire them to journal.  However, is the music that my clients listen to productive or detrimental to their well-being? Now a days, when I […]

Do Not Be Misled

It is so important for married couples to surround themselves with other couples who have functional marriages. Isaac Kubvoruno stated that marriage is like a plant; if you surround it with weeds it will eventually get chocked, wither and die.

Are You Addicted to Gaming Apps?

Unique Resolutions for 2015!

Every year I attempt to establish and maintain a new year resolution… some how I continue to fail each year.  Maybe I’m setting my resolutions too high, too low, too narrow or too broad.  Whatever it is, I tend to fail after 3 weeks in.  Sound familiar for you too?  Well, I did some research […]
