Study: Fatherhood Decreases Testosterone

fatherhoodreducestestosteroneNew Research: Fatherhood Reduces Testosterone!

A study from Northwestern University  has provided data on an issue that has impacted couples since the beginning of procreation.  While there has been plenty of research on the changes in sexuality for new mothers, what happens to fathers has largely been ignored.  Not any longer!

I have worked with over one thousand couples over the past twenty-five years and quite a few have been new parents wanting counseling because their sex life just isn’t the same as it used to be!

However, this new study by Northwestern [Read more…]

Do You Own Your Mission?

Do You Own Your Mission?

I was recently interviewed about being a mission specialist and supporting people in living their life purpose, their mission.Here are some excerpts:

What exactly IS a mission specialist?

It’s a term that I appropriated from NASA’s space program, which is only fitting, as I was an engineer before I became a psychologist and psychotherapist. I’ve always been interested in connecting people with their passion. I have specialized for years in helping couples bring passion back in their relationships. And while I still love working with couples and continue to do so, now in the second half of my life, the concept of a ‘mission’ and finding a life purpose has been calling to me. If I look at my work as a psychologist over the decades, ultimately it has been about connecting people to their real passion; their purpose. [Read more…]

Getting and staying in shape is a challenge for anyone and certainly for those of us in the second half of life.  I’m a little embarrassed to say that I wrote Part 1 of this almost a year ago, about my own personal experiences of getting in shape. It’s here at: It’s Hard To Get In Shape – EVERY Time!

In this Part 2, I focus on some of the blocks/concerns to getting back in shape in midlife.

Here are some of the “hot spot” issues after forty:

Purpose Will Add Years To Your Life!

purposePurpose Will Add Years To Your Life!

There are many factors involved in longevity and quality of life and we all have our own intuition about what combination of genetics, environment and perhaps even good luck is involved. Being trained as an engineer as well as a clinical psychologist, I wanted to take a look at the research as my current clinical focus is on life purpose and mission. Here is what I discovered regarding longevity and purpose.

In an ongoing study by Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, researchers asked thousands of retirement-age women and men to rate their sense of purpose in life. Those with the highest sense of purpose were half as likely [Read more…]

It’s very popular these days to here people talk about “being present” and “being in the moment” and “be here now” at least in the self-help communities. The truth though, is that we can NEVER be fully present in the moment, from a neuroscience perspective. Learn more in this short video.

Honoring The Passion Of Steve Jobs

Steve Job's PassionHonoring The Passion Of Steve Jobs

Did I ever meet Steve Jobs?  Not in person.  Yet he had a profound impact on my life, as he did on so many.  And his death touched me, impacted me, saddened me. On this anniversary of his death, I’m honoring that impact by sharing my thoughts.

He was a PASSIONATE man!  Probably not a perfect man, yet who is?  He lived his vision.  He was true to himself.  He didn’t compromise.  He didn’t settle.  He pushed himself and those around him to live full out, to live their greatness.

Everyone knows how he dropped out of school and started Apple in his garage.  How he was thrown out of his own company, replaced by a soft drink manager.  How he picked himself up, continued to live his vision, got his company back, and then brought it out of near bankruptcy to become (at least now) the largest company in the world.  He created, innovated, had a family and children and had interesting taste in clothes.

I remember as an undergraduate at MIT [Read more…]
