I was trying to think of ways in which I want to embrace the special parts of this time of year rather than the headless-chicken rushing around part.  I was trying to focus on who and what are important, rather than get bogged down by the tasks.  I received a very good...

Did you know: the holiday season is one of the periods during a calendar year when those who are experiencing feelings of depression and angst actually feel the worst?  Watching others bask in the love and attention of family can amplify the feelings of loneliness or u...

New recipe: This is probably the best dip we've tried since coming up with our favorite hummus.  And it's probably the best sauce we've tried since the green sauce we posted a bit ago.  Really, you've got to try it.

Meet your Coach

I am Susie Csorsz Brown and I am a Certified Parent Coach through PCI, specializing in families in transition. I am also a Wellness Coach.  I have a Health background, and I practice what I preach. I have three children, so I coach from experience. I am a Foreign Service spouse (since 2000), and have learned to deal with family issues from the stress of relocation, school issues, medical situations, pregnancy and divorce as well as family angst. 

You should know, healthy eating is one of my passions.  The thing is: food can be good for you and taste good, too.  I want my kids to eat well, and to grow up knowing what smarter food options are out there.
