Yoga of Dating

Do any of the following descriptions remind you of your own dating experiences? 

“A cobb salad, some yummy ingredients, but a whole lot of lettuce underneath.” “Horrifying.”
“An assembly line of the same ole’ thing in a slightly different package.”  

Yes, unfortunately, these are real-world depictions of singles’ experiences out in the dating world.  Dating is full of funny stories, romantic gestures, and in some cases, a whole lot of frustration. As a Denver therapist, I coach clients through a wide array of dating experiences.

Dr. Hick's Guide to Fearless Living in 2015: How to Renew a Relationship (Any Relationship at All)

Fearlessly Living - red poppies

As your year of living fearlessly continues, our focus turns towards this unique time of year.

There is an energy bouncing around us, within us and through us and, a renewed hope and rejuvenated spirit—it’s Spring!

Regardless of where you live, winter is a time for hunkering down, eating delicious holiday foods and spending more time indoors—even if you spend them at the ski lodge cozied up to a warm fire.

With all of your energy directed in these ways, it easy to surface from the season with some lackluster feelings about the state of your relationships—and perhaps, with others having some lackluster feelings about you.

Spring Cleaning

Just as your closet craves a good purge and reorganization (followed ...

Dr. Hick’s Guide to Fearless Living in 2015: Loving Yourself

February’s Focus – Loving Yourself

February is a time in which most people focus, ponder, or obsess about loving someone else or finding someone to love. Valentine’s Day has turned into a day to say to the world, “See, I am worthy of love!” Unfortunately, this inevitably lends itself to feeling unworthy of love if you’re single, or to a potentially false sense of happiness if you do have someone special with whom to celebrate.

As a Denver relationship therapist, the way I see it is that the only way truly to love another is to love yourself first. As a psychologist who focuses on helping you build healthier relationships ...

Exposing Old Wounds to Give Love its Best Chance

Sometimes current issues are rooted deep in the past—a past we must honor to heal from. Dr. Hick, Denver relationship therapist, helps us in exposing old wounds to find a happier today.

Some of you were lucky enough to have had a pretty “normal” childhood. What is “normal” these days, you ask? Well I don’t mean picture-perfect, Leave It To Beaver style, that’s for sure.

In fact, having a childhood like this might render you less resilient to losses, transitions, and upsets later in life. If you never experienced pain as a child, or had someone help you through your pain, it may be more difficult to ...
