Movies are an excellent way  to see someone’s creative depiction of life’s issues and effectively examine a variety of feelings. A good movie makes you think, feel, learn and develop insight to similarities in your life. 


Couples who watch relationship-centered movies and then discuss them afterwards are more likely to still be together after three years, according to a study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology.

Below are a few of my favorites.

(Client Suggested)

Bagger Vance.jpg

The Legend of Bagger Vance - Robert Redford   Could be a movie about prayer, music or mathematics because it is really about finding yourself at peace with the thing you do best. Seems like a movie about golf, but it's way more than that. 

Pursuit of Happiness.jpg

Pursuit Of Happyness - Will Smith  

  The movie beautifully depicts how much a man and a father can fight financial glitches and reach a place where the world remembers him forever. Indeed the best inspirational movies of all time when feeling low!

Witness - A Harrison Ford thriller, great film. Client recommended as "inspirational", Rodger Ebert's thoughts, " a movie about adults whose lives have dignity and whose choices matter to them."
