Don’t Leave Yourself Out of Thanksgiving Gratitude!

Thanksgiving is almost here - that time of year when “get your gratitude on!” is the game of the day. And indeed, you do have your gratitude well in gear. You are ready to express your gratefulness for your family, your friends, your job (maybe, could be a stretch), Pilates, football, the roof over your head, your pets, your new smart phone, the Macy’s sale, and lots more. The only thing notably lacking in your list of “things I am grateful for” is YOU. Ah yes. Can we talk? Because when it…See More

Happiness Is A 5:1 Deal - It’s Scientific!

Your spouse says “You’re gonna wear that?!” Your child, in a fit of frustration, yells out “I hate you!” Your boss says “This’ll never fly. Where’s your creativity?” Whether important or not, life-altering or just annoying, why is it that a single critical comment from your spouse, child or business partner hurts more than the compliment or appreciative words they offer? Why does that criticism linger while the compliment fades away almost immediately? It’s not like your spouse or child doesn’t…See More

The Ultimate Valentine’s Day Gift: Forgiveness

What if you made this Valentine’s Day more than a day about hearts and flowers? What if you made this Valentine’s Day about expanding your love, taking it beyond whatever wonderfulness you now experience to something even more amazing? It’s doable, you know. And all it takes is giving your beloved the ultimate gift: forgiveness. Your sweetheart doesn’t have to have done anything awful for you to give him or her forgiveness. Certainly, you can work on forgiving big things, but what I’m referring…See More

A Thanksgiving to Be Grateful For

You love your extended family, you really do, and the thought of all those aunts and uncles, in-laws and parents, cousins and various spouses and children warms your heart. Until it’s time for them to descend on your home for Thanksgiving. Even if it’s just a parent or solitary in-law or wayward cousin, having to deal with relatives you see but once or twice a year can be a trial. It seems so much easier to love them at a distance! At a distance, you forget all about Aunt Ethel’s obnoxious…See More

Turn the Tables on Your Horrible Boss: Go from Miserable to Successful!

You’re positively miserable. Your boss is a walking criticism-machine, never a supportive nod or word of thanks, regardless of how long and hard you slave at your appointed tasks. Heaven forbid anything goes wrong, ever, for even an instant, because he whips out blame with lightning speed, excoriating whoever he deems responsible, which is of course, never him--always you or another of your equally miserable co-workers. You go from complaining to your co-workers, who kvetch in sympathetic…See More

Regain Peace of Mind: Trash Those Unwanted Thoughts!

You made up. The argument is long over; life with your sweetheart is back to normal. Except for that little nagging thought that keeps running through your brain, with the determined persistence of a hamster on a treadmill: “How could he/she do that? How could he/she say that about me in front of our friends?” Despite the countless times you’ve reminded your self that he/she not only recognized (eventually) that they were wrong for doing it (Yippee! One for your side) but also apologized…See More

Never take your spouse for granted, focus on all that is wonderful about your sweetheart, and let them know, time and again, how much you appreciate all they are and do - for you, for your family, and in the world.
About Me:
My mother named me "Noelle" because, being French, she wanted me to have a French name that couldn't be mispronounced in English. Didn't work. I've been called "No-No," "Noellie" "the First Noel" (among others). Poor woman, she meant well . . . Meanwhile, growing up in California with a French mom and a Cincinnati, Ohio, born-and-bred Dad was an adventure: European discipline, Mid-West values and organic foods before anyone knew what organic was. My stylish Parisian mother would have loved fashion-plate children, instead she got my tomboy sister and a bookworm - me.

My not-very-straight-line path took me to Wellesley (briefly), UCLA (BA), the Sorbonne in Paris (Doctorat), United States International University (Ph.D.) with assorted jobs along the way: medical receptionist, 2nd stage manager at the Lido (Paris), acting coach, clinical psychologist, trial consultant, relationship expert, and mixed through it all - author! The thing I love best to do. Well, along with giving seminars, speeches, creating videos.

The one outstanding lesson life has taught me, and that runs through all my writings in a variety of ways is this life, and everything that is in it - you, me, our friends and families, the animals, the earth, our planet, the galaxy, God, all of it - is most present, most fulfilled when it is grandly, genuinely, thoroughly appreciated. Appreciation is the cornerstone of love, for only when you value something, cherish it, do you come to love it.

Now, here's the serious stuff:

Personal Growth

As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Nelson has empowered countless individuals to be happier, healthier and more successful at work, at home and in relationships. Dr. Nelson shares her proactive and positive outlook in her books, articles, workshops and seminars. Dr. Nelson's popular monthly newsletter, "A Note From Dr. Noelle," and her book, The Power of Appreciation: The Key to a Vibrant Life (Beyond Words Publishing) give readers the skills to use appreciation's energy to impact their lives. Dr. Nelson is also the author of Everyday Miracles (Prentice Hall Press), Winner Takes All (Perseus Publishing), Dangerous Relationships: How to Identify and Respond to the Seven Warning Signs of a Troubled Relationship (Perseus Publishing) and, most recently, Your Man is Wonderful (Free Press).

Dr. Nelson has appeared on national and international radio and television including CBS's "The Early Show," ABC's "The View," Montel, Fox News and CNN. She has been in publications including Redbook, Cosmopolitan, Entrepreneur, People, Bottom Line/Personal and the Los Angeles Times. Dr. Nelson has spoken on appreciation before audiences in the U.S., Canada, England and Australia.

Business & Legal

A business trial consultant for 20 years, Dr. Nelson works closely with attorneys, company management and corporate executives.

Dr. Nelson has extensively studied how people think, make decisions and how they commit to those decisions. As a trial consultant, she helps attorneys enlist the cooperation of 12 perfect strangers (the jury) to get the results they want--all in the face of opposing counsel trying to convince the jury to come to the opposite decision. Since 2000, she has helped win more than $500 million for her plaintiff clients. Her defense clients have saved hundreds of millions more.

Dr. Nelson's background as a business trial consultant and psychologist requires the study and understanding of people--real people--not the theoretical customer or employee discussed at business schools. Her book, The Power of Appreciation in Business: How an Obsession with Value Increases Performance, Productivity and Profits (MindLab Publishing), takes the appreciation concept and applies it to the workplace.

Dr. Nelson is a member of the National Honor Society of Psychology, the American Society of Trial Consultants and the American Psychological Association.
