The examples in this blog are fictional, not clinical case presentations. My ethical commitment to my clients’ confidentiality precludes me from using any information that could in any way identify someone. Each example is an amalgam of personal and professional experiences and observations. I have used creative license to tell what I believe are helpful stories designed to promote healthy relationships, mental health, life balance and personal growth. The information provided is not meant to treat any condition, and it is not a replacement for treatment by a professional.

  1. Comment for “Snark Sharks” Yes, the insecure jackasses sure are out there aren’t they? I prefer to just go ghetto on their ass. For example- when told to put your books in the junkpile, your response would be: “Oh, then I’ll need the address to your mama’s house” ! Works like a charm every time.

  2. “Snark Sharks” Part 2…….. The ski jacket? “You should know, I got it from your mama’s closet!” The outfit? That’s’re getting it “from your mama’s drawer”
    It’s fun- just takes a little practice and it can magically transform any insult coming your way into an immediate slap in the face without the worry of an assault arrest! 😉
