About this blog: About this blog: I am a LMFT specializing in couples counseling and grief and have lived in Silicon Valley since 1969. I'm the president of Connect2 Marriage Counseling. I worked in high-tech at Apple, Stanford University, and in Silicon Valley for 15 years before becoming a therapist. My background in high-tech is helpful in understanding local couples' dynamics and the pressures of living here. I am a wife, mom, sister, friend, author, and lifelong advocate for causes I believe in (such as marriage equality). My parents are both deceased. My son graduated culinary school and is heading toward a degree in Sociology. I enjoy reading, hiking, water fitness, movies, 49ers and Stanford football, Giants baseball, and riding a tandem bike with my husband. I love the beach and mountains; nature is my place of restoration. In my work with couples, and in this blog, I combine knowledge from many fields to bring you my best ideas, tips, tools and skills, plus book and movie reviews, and musings to help you be your genuine self, find your own voice, and have a happy and healthy relationship. Don't be surprised to hear about brain research and business skills, self-soothing techniques from all walks of life, suggestions and experiments, and anything that lights my passion for couples.

Want a weekend to feel normal with your grief? A place to not have to pretend about what you're going through? Be surrounded by others that have joined the club no one wants to have joined?
Kara, an amazing grief support organization in Palo Alto has a few openings for high school or recently graduated females in their Camp Erin program. Friday, July 18 through Sunday noon, July 20. No cost. The website says registration is closed. Please ignore that and contact: Beth Keller at [email protected]
The Tim Griffith Foundation is offering it's first Summer Grief Retreat for Fathers: Friday - Sunday, August 15-17. Cost $450; they will provide scholarships as needed. They also offer Mother's Grief Retreats in September and December. Contact: Debbie Lee at [email protected]
* I am unaffiliated with these organizations. I used to volunteer for Kara in fundraising, and later as a peer counselor.
