|Me, AKA The Twin Coach|
I grew up in a family of writers; my father, my grandfather, my grandmother, even my father's adoptive father, all were or are writers. Writing was never my "thing", as far as a career was concerned, but I always kept journals and knew that I enjoyed writing and that it was a medium that helped me feel creative as well as allowed me to process through some of the harder times in my life.
Before our children were born, I had a successful practice as a holistic healer specializing in various types of energy therapies and combining that body work with talk therapy. I loved helping people get "unstuck" and offering them new ways to see things so that, ultimately, they left my office in a better frame of mind than when they entered.
So whether you have multiples or singletons, please, take some time to visit and feel welcomed to add your comments and suggestions. I love to hear from you. If you are interested, I do private coaching sessions for expectant and new(ish) parents of twins at my office in Los Angeles or via Skype if necessary. I can be reached by email at TheTwinCoach@gmail.com
Here is some of what has been said about this blog so far:
"Put down all of your how-to parenting books and keep Gina Osher's article, 'Motherhood: Otherwise Known As Therapy' by your nightstand -- you will need it.Through personal anecdotes Gina bravely shares with us the triggers that may prevent a parent from being the best parent they can be. Absolute genius!
~ by Dr. Pamela Varady, Family Psychologist on Motherhood: Otherwise Known As Therapy
"Gina, it's so wonderful to have a guide like you with kids a few years older than mine, so I can be prepared when I get to the same spots. They're going to think "Gina" is an encyclopedia or something!"
~ by Steven Brogden on Talking To Your Children About The Scary Stuff
"Just when I thought your posts couldn't get any better, you blog about Emotional Intelligence! I may only have two singletons, but I find your blog very useful and look forward to your insightful, thoughtful and intelligent posts! In keeping with this entry, The Echo Center is a wonderful resource for parents with the philosophy of empathetic parenting and being your child's emotional coach. Gina, keep 'em coming!"
~ by Mia on What I Am Is
"What a beautifully written post. It's often so hard to put into words why being a mommy is both so exhausting and so rewarding; thank you for doing it for me!"
~ by Megan on Why Are You Always So Tired?
"Once again, another inspirational and insightful post. You are amazing"
~ Sharon on Halloween Candy = The Meaning Of Life
