The Best Valentine’s Gift Ever: “I Don’t Care”!

No, not “I don’t care about you” – that would be awful! Just “I don’t care.” By itself. As in “I don’t care that you left your socks on the floor.” “I don’t care that you over/under-tipped the server.” “I don’t care that you were five minutes late.” Because here’s the thing: nothing kills romance faster than getting bugged about every little thing that’s different about how the two of you go about life. Certainly, there are major differences, critical differences, that must be addressed. If you…See More

The Holidays: “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Really?

The Holidays! You’ve made your list and you’re checking it twice. Let’s see: not enough money in the budget to get the kids what they really want. Not enough for a quick two day get-away for you and your S.O., given the cost of transportation, accommodations, and a sitter who will put up for that long with the kids and your menagerie of 2 cats, 1 dog, 3 hamsters and 1 and ½ lizard (tail missing). Relatives who are thrilled to announce they’re flying in for a nice long visit, of course staying…See More

Thanksgiving 2.0: Be Grateful For Everything That Goes Right!

How often do you stop to catch yourself in the act of doing something right? Or anybody else for that matter . . . As opposed to dinging yourself for every single mistake you make, every flaw you find on your face, in your character, your clothes, your finances, your relationship, your friends--need I go on? We’ve got catching ourselves (and/or our friends, employers, loved ones, strangers, celebrities and whoever else) doing it wrong down to a fine art, practiced umpteen times a day with zeal…See More

“The Lion King” and “Aladdin” Get the Best of a LaGuardia Situation

Travel delays are never fun, but from time to time they are bound to happen. You can’t expect the weather to cooperate every time you fly, and better they should repair those mechanical issues before you fasten your seat belt. I’ve learned to take a deep breath, chill, remind myself it’s not the end of the world, and then look for a way to appreciate whatever extra time I’m now spending in the airport. Reading always works for me, so does getting in some phone-chat time with girlfriends, or…See More

What Would (Insert Name of Favorite Action Hero) Do?

Your most recent attempt to persuade your boss of how much you deserve that raise/bonus/perk landed in the unfathomable depths of his “No way no how” with barely a ripple. You are depressed, disgusted, and yes - truth be told - massaging your hurt ego with liberal doses of self-pity. Which brings to mind all the times your boss has been less than appreciative of your skills, talents, efforts, unpaid overtime, etc.  Like always! And down the road of history you go, your self-pity growing with…See More

What's your best marriage advice?
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.
