Intentions for 2015

On behalf of the team members at Oliver-Pyatt Centers we wish you and your loved ones a very Happy New Year! We  are thankful for the opportunity to look back and appreciate the past year and to share our intentions for the upcoming year with you, our readers. We look forward to entering 2015 with you all!

Spend more time cultivating my relationships with friends and family, cook more, and be mindful of the pace at which I operate daily.

Terina Lopez, MS, LMHC

Spend more time with my friends and to be more willing to be spontaneous.

Jamie Blosser Morris, MS, LMHC

Meditate daily for at least ten minutes and to write in my gratitude journal in the evenings. 

Bertha Tavarez, PsyD

Complete one or more actions every day to challenge my comfort zone and to continue to allow myself to love others, receive love, and love myself.

Jenn Gollinger

The 1st of January 2015 is my second birthday since I quit smoking, which was the biggest challenge of my life. This year, after two years, I feel strong enough to commit to a next step for a healthier life, and go back to playing field hockey, my favorite sport that I stopped practicing four years ago and miss a lot!

Lucia Garcia Fernandez

Practice meditation for 10 minutes four days a week upon returning home from work.  I also intend to verbally share gratitude/appreciations with my loved ones more throughout the year.

Amy Sosa, PsyD

For the upcoming year, I wish to continue to grow into new and exciting career challenges. Wishing everyone a new year full of health, happiness and prosperity! 

Elizabeth Carballosa

Practicing gratitude daily.

Benaaz Russell, PsyD

For the new year, my resolution will be to incorporate self-care into my routine, spend quality time with my family, and to discover something exciting about myself.

Abida Marajh

Finish yoga teacher training with Anna Guest-Jelley at Curvy Yoga in Nashville, to read the books that have already found their way to my shelves, and to swim in the ocean more often.

Karin Lawson, PsyD.

Increase my professional and personal self-care, including taking a Sandplay therapy training course, pursuing a tap dance class, and re-connecting with old friends.

Miriam Reder, MS

Unplug more often, to enjoy each present moment, and as my four-year-old daughter would sing “Let it Go.”

Melissa Spann, PhD

Spend more time with friends and loved ones.

Kelli Malkasian, PsyD

Be more mindful of my surroundings. I am clumsy!

Alicia Lesniak, LMHC

Improve my cooking skills and try new recipes each week!

Tali Yuz, PsyD

Spend more time with my family, participate in fun activities with my two daughters Mikaela and Jada, and spend more time in a carefree state of mind.

Wendy Oliver-Pyatt, MD, FAED, CEDS

Take the time to actually call my friends and not just rely on text, social media, and email. I am starting with one per month, but hope to get to one per week.   

Mary Dye, MPH, RD, CDN, LD/N
