Heather Browne PsyD, LMFT

Dr. Heather Browne PsyD, LMFT helps people recognize the power of communication.  It is one of our most important skills that we have, and yet we don’t consider our understanding, approach, belief, and therefore, miss our possibilities.  Living with a paranoid schizophrenic mother gave Dr. Heather a unique and powerful awareness that no one has the same reality, though we believe we do.  Utilizing this revolutionary awareness has allowed her to transform communication within self and within all other types of relationship.  This is the hidden key to acceptance.  And this is her mission to share.

As a relationship expert, Dr. Heather Browne has worked with thousands of individuals and couples in psychotherapy.  She is a TedX Speaker and Keynote Speaker. Her couple’s communication book will be out 1/24. She is published in hundreds of journals, has an active YouTube channel, has been featured on ABC-7 news, was the relationship expert on KDOC Daybreak OC, and is published in Inc., Toronto Sun, Thriving Family Magazine,  Light + Life, BRAINZ, Scary Mommy, and Psychology Today.  She is a regular guest blogger for both Links for Shrinks and for Marriage Friendly Therapists. She offers a weekly newsletter packed with tips and techniques to improve relationships and has monthly workshops!

    Do you love otters? Learning? Joy? A moment when every changes?   A friend shared a movie about a man’s joyful life salvation because of an encounter with a stranded baby otter.  Think The Octopus Teacher.  It is the sweetest story on the powerful impact of how caring for another transforms our lives.  And if you love nature and all it has to teach us….watch and share and let me know how it blesses you!   https://youtu.be/fkoNeESBH94?si=EiwXViNC_QJgzF1P

I Am An Inconvenience    I have lost my independence. And here it is the 4th!  I hope you are going to the beach or a block party!   It’s been humbling to ask folks to open my water bottle.  Actually I’ve learned to do it between my legs but it’s a little uncouth in public!  I do have to ask folks to tie my tennis shoes.  It’s so weird to be able to write a book, give a TedX, and not be able to cut an onion.  I know it’s temporary, but how bizarre this is!   ! am an inconvenience.  I think for the first time in my life.  It is giving me such compassion.  I am thanking fol…

  We want it to be at times.  When it would serve us.  But who ever told you life would be fair? And what would happen if it was?  Everything would be even.  Everything would happen as it “should”.  There’d  be no personal growth, no challenge, nothing new, everything would be nice.  And function nicely. And what would happen?  It would be pleasant for a little while and then we would get bored, frustrated, and angry.  We want to be the fixer.  We want to be the dreamer.  We want to stand out. We don’t really want everything even Steven.  How boring and predictable that wo…

  Do you let go? What do you think when I ask that? Is that giving up? Weak? Does it make you a Quitter?   Or what else could it be?   Is it always weak to let go?   I don’t think so.  Letting go can be an act of power, of courage, of faith.   I have tried everything I know and this still doesn’t work for me. Letting go is a decision, a choice to let yourself have something other than what you have had.  You are consciously choosing something that better serves you, or to see what works differently for you.  It opens the door to new possibilities.  You might choose to return.   W…

Do you think that’s true?  That a 100% is easier than 99%?  I didn’t think so until I heard someone speaking about the challenges of 1%.   Let’s take sugar.  Is it easier to tell yourself you can NEVER have sugar this week or 99% of the time you can not have sugar?   I thought it would be easier to commit to 99%.  Then maybe I can have it once this week. I really enjoy sugar!   But what does that mean?  For me it means each meal I am asking myself:   Are you going to have it now? Do you want that chocolate? Or a cookie? Or a slice of cake? Should you go to the store and look at …

I just heard there are 7 types of rest.   SEVEN   And one of the first facts is that sleep and rest are not the same. Did you catch that?  Sleep and rest are not the same.  I am a “burn the candle at both ends” kind of gal, so that struck me.  I crash when I go to sleep.  And I will sometimes wake up still tired.  So let’s learn here and let’s explore rest.   We are a high demand society.  And because of this we are also a highly burned out society who are chronically tired and sluggish. And I, for one, need to understand rest.   We need rest in 7 areas: Doesn’t that sound …

Why me?   Instead of why NOT me?   Yikes!  Does that distinction come out of that place where we feel victimized or that we should somehow not suffer?  No one wants to.  No one wants cancer, or to lose a limb, or a dog.  We want our life to be easy. But let's think about this a little bit differently.  When we say, “why me?”  We’re not focusing on what is actually happening.  We are focusing on ourselves.  Instead of: Why this?  Why an accident? Why cancer? Why rejection?   We’re upset that we will struggle, that we are screwed over in our mind.   Our focus is   Why do I …

How often do you hear someone labeled as toxic?  Our world has chosen to cling to that description of behavior.  What I find fascinating is that it is often used when someone simply refuses to think as we do: they might be challenging, frustrating, or problematic.  But that is a far cry from toxic.    Toxic means it is deadly or permanently or severely destructive.   In Buddhism, any place of pain is seen as a cry for love.  The cancer, the injury, the boil are wanting to be recognized, heard, and loved.  There is an exercise where cancer patients journal with their cancer.  Asking wh…

  As we get older and life goes on, it seems that there are more and more ways that we decide or come to find that we are different.  But as we enter Mother’s Day, there is an important universal truth for us to realize.  We all have mother’s.  And it was planned, and decided, that within the woman, within our mother, was the safest and most sacred place for us to begin.   Not all of us stayed with our mothers.  And not all of our mothers were able to stay safe for us, but when we were started, there was some protection.  And within your mother’s body, you were embraced and held.…

“Being average is hell on Earth." It’s a boring, lifeless, pandering, people-pleasing disaster that leads you to a dead end, and shortly after, off a cliff. Don’t do it, it’s a bear trap. You can do better than average without much extra effort. “There is no normal/average. A 'normal person' is what is left after society has squeezed out all unconventional opinions and aspirations out of a human being." – Sylvia Path   The following brilliance is from Tim Denning: Pretend rules don’t exist The nanny police are gonna light my skinny ass on fire for this one.

Have you read about Imposter Syndrome?   Have you and our friends been talking about Imposter Syndrome?    Do you sometimes feel like an Imposter?  And have you thought about what this even means?  It's a feeling that you are not being yourself or a feeling of not feeling like yourself.  But how can you feel anything other than what you are or what you feel?   Even so, people are talking about this, all over the place, especially in the arena of creators and entrepreneurs.  It is spoken about when you are stepping into something new, a new opportunity, or a new role where you will be d…

  I heard an owl in my neighborhood.  And where I live that is unnatural and unheard of.  It took me back to my childhood.   I grew up with an owl in my backyard.  And I used to drift off to sleep to his WHO.   And so I listened.  I listened in my ears and in my memories at the same time.  I felt my stomach stirring.  WHO?  WHO?   And as I contemplated on the sound and on connecting with my past, this wise old owl brought me to an important message.   Who are you?       Are you a compilation of all the ages of you that you have ever been?

There’s no problem here. None at all. I know, your head is reeling.  But hear me out!   A problem requires a story, a beginning, a middle, and an end.  A problem requires a history.  Either a before or a soon to be future.  There is only a problem if you have a frame of reference with which to critic this moment.   BUT…if you choose to live in this moment, if right now is what it is to be, then there isn’t a problem, there’s just now.  And you can deal with now.   Alright, I know there are things that you want or need to change.  But by not viewing it as a problem, it can be v…

We often say that we would do things differently once we've been blessed with hindsight.  And of course we would!   With hindsight we can see the actual outcome.  But when we make choices in life, we do the best we can with what we DO know.  And that also includes what we DON'T know.   But how many times do we actually make right decisions?  I bet it is the majority of times, if we could truly evaluate a whole day honestly.  How little actually goes wrong?  How amazing we are in doing so much right!  Think about it.  If we were really a huge mess-up, that would be our normal, or exp…
