Happy Lunar New Year!
2023 is a year of the Water Rabbit! Starting from January 22nd, 2023 (Chinese New Year), and ending on February 9th, 2024 (Chinese New Year's Eve). The sign of Rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture. 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope. According to Chinese astrology, Rabbits are predicted to be gentle, quiet, elegant, and alert as well as quick, skillful, kind, patient, and very responsible, sometimes reluctant to reveal their minds to others and having a tendency to escape reality, but always faithful to those around them. I Wish you happiness and prosperity!

Francine Shapiro and EMDR
I'm saddened to hear of Francine Shapiro's death earlier this week....if you don't know, this woman discovered EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is an effective tool in reducing the impact of hurtful memories, it reduces the impact of PTSD, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, drug addiction, attachment issues, grief, insomnia and eating disorders...and that's just part of what EMDR does. I absolutely love providing EMDR to the clients that I work with and am forever indebted to this woman and her discovery. For more information about Francine Shapiro read:
