Fast forward about 15 years. I knew I was in trouble when I’d come home late from a long day of seeing clients too depleted to read my kids a bedtime story. I knew things weren’t going well when I spent more time on my laptop than with real humans.
Then, I reached a low point when I yelled at my kids for laughing too much while watching YouTube, telling them they should be doing something more productive like reading a book or practicing piano.
Are you ready to make some changes? You already have everything you need inside of you to light up the world. You just have to tune in and trust yourself enough to strike the match.
Enough was enough.
I started working less. I practiced meditation more consistently. I took naps. I prioritized meaningful connections. I gave myself permission to travel more, even if it meant leaving my kids at home. And I learned how to be compassionate with myself (which has been the biggest game changer of every tool I have ever learned).
If you're here, you're taking a hard look at your life and recovery. You've likely experienced a pivotal "What the heck?" moment of your own.
Who the heck yells at her kids for laughing too much?
Together we’ll rediscover your fire. 🔥
To really listen to ourselves, we need quiet and stillness. Practice Meditation.
Therapy is hard work, but it can also be filled with laughter and lightness.
My goal as your therapist is to make myself obsolete.
The "goodness of fit" between therapist and client is key.
You're allowed to be picky in choosing a therapist!
