My Favorite Substacks for Women Lawyers

In the past year or so, you may have noticed a rise in the media platform, Substack. Substack, in my own words, is a place for writers to publish their work, often long-form, and readers to find and support the writers they like with subscriptions, typically $5/month....

My Favorite Meditations for Women Lawyers

My Favorite Meditations for Women Lawyers

Typically, on a 1:1 consultation, I invite you to do a short, grounding meditation before we dive in.  It's optional, and many people say yes.I guide you to take a few deep breaths, leave the gunk of the day, week, and year behind, and come into this present...

What “toll” do you want to pay?

What “toll” do you want to pay?

I recently drove across the George Washington Bridge and miraculously there was NO traffic. And then I noticed something else missing… the toll booths. Yes, I still paid a toll, via E-Z Pass, but no more physical toll booths. As a kid, I always was fascinated by the...
