After President-elect Trump’s “Grab them by the p****” comment hit the airwaves a few weeks before the National election, Kelly Oxford, a Canadian author sugges...

Teen Students

October 7, 2016 | Natasha Weston

It might be easy to ‘poo poo’ empathy, as in ‘Empathy plus ninety-nine cents, what’ll that get me? A donut?’ But honestly, out of all my therapy skills, I think it’s what my clients hunger for the most. Heck, I think it’s what I hunger for the most! Unfortunately, albe...

Holding Hands in the Sunshine

December 23, 2015 | Natasha Weston

There’s a new novel out titled, “The Kindness of Enemies”  and I wish I’d thought of that title first!

At thirty I didn’t have any enemies and never thought I would. At thirty-eight, as my first husband went from friend to foe, in what seemed like minutes, I had my firs...

The recent Paris attacks have made me think about what it means to feel disenfranchised. And why does that feeling lead some people to do unthinkably terrible things? This is a hard thing for me to write about because I don’t want anyone to think I am condoning violent...

Eiffle Tower

September 10, 2015 | Natasha Weston

The upside to being on a fairly continuous ‘self-improvement’ plan is that I keep finding new ways and things to improve! The downside is often paralyzing self-doubt and harsh, internal judgment. So a lot of my recent mission has been to help myself and my clients impr...

Am I Truly Boring?

All the things I could write about, I want to write about boredom. Once when I was 18 my father said, “If you don’t stop talking like this Natasha, people are going to think you’re boring.” By, “this” he meant like someone who had just come from her t...

Time to Reflect

Today I am on vacation and happily spending the day napping, reading a beach novel, making homemade guacamole, tending to my daughter’s splinter and bug bites and enjoying a gorgeous morning walk with my hubby. We got up early and walked to the local gro...

Teacher in the Classroom

June 18, 2015 | Natasha Weston

I’m tired of defending psychotherapy.

It’s kind of like the amount of times I heard the “Rocky and Bullwinkle,” Natasha and Boris jokes when I first moved to this country from England in the late 1970’s. It was hilarious to all the people who had seen the cartoon to act...

Woman on Couch for a Therapy Session

February 14, 2015 | Natasha Weston

As I get ready to send my second son off to college I am thinking about graduation, because in a way I feel like I’m graduating too. Perhaps mothers should be invited to write High School graduation speeches. But of course we never are. Our eighteen year olds stopped c...

Three Girls at Graduation

December 21, 2014 | Natasha Weston

At 50, I tend to click on articles about growing older gracefully, or not so gracefully. Some of them are worthy of the word ‘viral’ and some of them well, not so much.

Recently I thought, “If I read one more article that basically says, ‘I’m still skinny, but I look te...

“He who binds to himself a Joy, Does the winged life destroy; He who kisses the Joy as  it flies, Lives in Eternity’s sunrise.” William Blake

It’s almost September and a new school year is always a marker of change for me, even though I haven’t been...
