About this blog: About this blog: I am a LMFT specializing in couples counseling and grief and have lived in Silicon Valley since 1969. I'm the president of Connect2 Marriage Counseling. I worked in high-tech at Apple, Stanford University, and in Silicon Valley for 15 years before becoming a therapist. My background in high-tech is helpful in understanding local couples' dynamics and the pressures of living here. I am a wife, mom, sister, friend, author, and lifelong advocate for causes I believe in (such as marriage equality). My parents are both deceased. My son graduated culinary school and is heading toward a degree in Sociology. I enjoy reading, hiking, water fitness, movies, 49ers and Stanford football, Giants baseball, and riding a tandem bike with my husband. I love the beach and mountains; nature is my place of restoration. In my work with couples, and in this blog, I combine knowledge from many fields to bring you my best ideas, tips, tools and skills, plus book and movie reviews, and musings to help you be your genuine self, find your own voice, and have a happy and healthy relationship. Don't be surprised to hear about brain research and business skills, self-soothing techniques from all walks of life, suggestions and experiments, and anything that lights my passion for couples.

While watching a video about gratitude on TED, I stumbled across a video of Nicole Daedone's talk about the inner "hunger" in women; truly a cry for connection beyond shopping, errands, mothering, career, etc.
Nicole has a book out and a center for sexuality that she truly believes will change the world; a woman's self acceptance by absolute focus and attention to her vagina and clitoris, and orgasm. Physical well-being through orgasm.
In the video (yes, her clothes are on) she describes the process of 15 minutes of sex with a clothed man, where he shines a flashlight on her vagina and describes in minute detail what he sees and slowly brings her to orgasm.
Most people are seldom "seen" and described in such detail. Maybe it will heal the world . . .
