Welcome to PositivelyBeautiful.com ~ Where Your True Beauty is Revealed!

As women, we’ve experienced “good hair days?” It may or may not be triggered by your hair of course, but we know the feeling. We feel good about our self and the world! There’s extra spring in your step, a twinkle in your eyes, and an easy smile for everyone you meet!

Contrast that feeling of radiance, confidence and vitality with a “bad hair day” when you don’t feel your best or even close! You get through the day shrinking from the world, disconnected from any sense of your true beauty.

As a holistic cosmetic surgeon, I’ve helped hundreds of people in my practice who feel like every single day is the ultimate bad hair day. Some believe they were never blessed with good looks, or feel fat despite their size. Others agonize over acne that left marks on their skin and their soul. Many fear that their youthful beauty is fading, still others question their desirability and self-worth after a traumatic divorce or major life change.

These women come to me seeking the beauty that they already posses, but can’t (yet) see for themselves. For many of these women my skills as a cosmetic surgeon are an incredible catalyst to their transformation, … and it’s my duty to remind them that while in some cases plastic surgery can be an amazing catalyst to transformation, it is not the only way to achieve the vibrant glow of a Positively Beautiful life.

I believe that true beauty is health and happiness, made visible, and that beauty is yours to define.

Positively Beautiful is my offering to you, a Sanctuary of Support, Information and Resources for seekers of beauty, freedom and luminous joy.

Explore. Enjoy.

Dec 21st. Winter Solstice. The shortest day of the year. Here in Fargo, North Dakota, where I live, we’ll have about 8 hours and 30 minutes of daylight on that day. Which means… 15 hours and 30 minutes of darkness. Good grief. And we won’t even mention the temperature! Even people who love the winter…

Everything you ever wanted to know about… gluten.

A few days ago, I popped onto Facebook and asked a few friends: “What’s something you’d love to see me write about?” Someone said: “GLUTEN!” That’s not surprising. I am asked about it often in my office. And at cocktail parties, in the grocery store, and in the hallway at school! “Gluten” has exploded into…

My holiday intention: Simplicity. (What’s yours?)

There’s a book sitting on my bedside table, right now. It’s called Less. A friend gave it to me, months ago. “It’s a beautiful book about the power of doing less — and focusing your energy where it counts,” she told me. The minute I got the book, I thought to myself, “I really need to…
