My Father’s Passing

A note to my family, students, clients, community, tribe. I have been receiving emails and texts from many of you asking where Heather and I have been the last couple weeks. On November 17th at around 5pm, my loving father, Terry Thomas Mills, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, a few weeks before his 75th birthday at his home in[…]Read This Blog Post

Life Balance (Part 2)

Earlier in the summer, we started a conversation about life balance. We discussed some ideas and thoughts about balance, and we even gave a “challenge” of picking one thing you have been putting off around your “self care” and practicing it throughout the summer. Some of you may have had lots of success with this[…]Read This Blog Post

Summer Skin (Part 2)

As a teenager, I had a boyfriend who insisted that sunscreen was just a marketing gimmick to sell a product nobody really needed. For some reason, his denial of the valid use of sunscreen made me irrationally irate. So one day at the beach, I decided to put SPF on one-half of my upper chest[…]Read This Blog Post

Summer Skin (Part 1)

Summer in Portland is a glorious time! It can also be an intense time for our skin. The lack of sun we experience for the majority of the year leaves us vulnerable when it finally arrives in full force.

Lifestyle and Balance (Part I)

I recently had a client ask me “when will I know my life is ‘balanced’?” I often use this term “balance” when I am coaching my clients and students to signify some sort of equilibrium. However, this can often be misleading, insinuating perhaps that at some point we will “arrive” in balance never to be[…]Read This Blog Post
