"If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can't survive." - Brené Brown I've been a mental health therapist for over three years now; a licensed one for over a year. I love what I do. I find that people thrive the most when they are validated and their … Continue reading A Therapist Signs Up For Therapy: Shame, Acceptance, Vulnerability
Here we are, at the last chakra. Writing this chakra series has been really fun and eye opening for me. I hope you learned something from this journey about how balancing the chakras can help clients in counseling. I'm sure the chakras are a subject I will go back to on this blog again, because … Continue reading Sahasrara: Somewhere Only We Know

Alright, feeling grounded? Let's … Continue reading Svadhisthana – Let’s Get Physical

I'm still fairly new to my studio; my job is hectic and the holidays made it really hard to go consistently. Around the end of January, though, I found a teacher … Continue reading Muladhara – What Is There to Fear?
