Talking Points on 3 Mistakes
People Make in Their Estate Planning:
- Not updating their estate plan after a divorce. Rules are complicated and if you leave an old plan in place it can cause confusion and problems. This is particularly true for beneficiary designations on life insurance or retirement accounts. If you leave an ex-spouse on as a beneficiary after a divorce, he or she may still be entitled to your money after you’re gone.

Interview: Dr. Colleen Cira, Psy.D.
Dr. Cira has worked with hundreds of people struggling with suicidal thoughts. Unfortunately, she also had a family member commit suicide, so she understands the tragedy of this both personally and professionally.
From Dr. Colleen Cira
Suicide is so confusing and difficult to understand because suicide sounds awful to someone who isn’t in tremendous amounts of pain. The idea of taking your own life sounds terrifying to most of us and then all of the consequences that come with suicide (loved ones grieving, feelings of failure, etc) make it sound pretty unappealing if you’ve never been in so much pain that death sounds like a relief. But someone’s profound pain coupled with the hopelessness of feeling like the pain is never going away can make death sound/feel like an answer. The problem is that most pain DOES go away, but sometimes it takes a lot longer than what is ideal which leaves people in a tough position.

How to find the right therapist. . . .
According to Dr. Cira, the goodness of fit is everything. Research is clear that the #1 determining factor in whether or not a client gets better from therapy is based on how strong their relationship is with their therapist. If you don’t like your therapist, you’re not going to get better, regardless of how well-trained they are.
- There are many different types of therapists and levels of training: LSW’s, LCP’s, LSCW’s, LCPC’s, Psy.D. and Ph.D. It’s important to understand what these things mean and how they are different. Only then can you figure out what’s best for you. Continue reading “What You Must Know Before Starting Therapy”
Interview: Carol Barkes
This comes from a communications expert, Carol Barkes. Here are some talking points for an interview on how to break up with someone in the best possible way:
1) Acknowledge the positive. When relationships end, it doesn’t necessarily mean our love and feelings for the person ends, too. We can love someone and still know the relationship is not right for each other. With that being said, acknowledging this is and recognizing the lovely moments that brought the two of you together is a far better spin for our brains than to completely focus on the negatives.
