What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name J. K. Rowling?
Most people think of Harry Potter and all the magic that his world entails. ⚡️
•
But I read this quote from J. K. Rowling once, and I think it’s one of her most important messages. 👌🏼
•
Going into the summer, when everyone is hyper-aware of how they look and their “bikini body”, it’s especially significant. 🙌🏼
•
This summer, instead of your focus being on how to look your best at the beach, try to think about how you can grow as a person:
How can you be more present in your life?
How can you get even one step closer to your academic/career/relationship goals?
How can you give back to your community?
How can you be a support to the people you care about?
How can you increase awareness about something you’re passionate about?
•
This summer I plan to use the extra daylight hours to - network and collaborate with fellow therapists and people in wellness fields
- spend more time outdoors with my husband and daughter
- run some wellness workshops
- speak with schools about programs they can use in the next school year for helping children develop their social-emotional skills
AND some more great things. (Gotta love all that extra sunlight!) ☀️

What are some of your (non-body) goals this summer?

Independent (adj.): Not subject to control by others; self-governing. 🎆 .
.
Interdependent (adj.): Mutually reliant on one other, for the benefit of the relationship and individuals 💫 .
.
Independence and interdependence are both necessary for relationships to truly thrive, otherwise, the individuals get lost in trying to be what the other person wants. Knowing your values (and your prospective partner's) at the onset of a relationship can help guide your relationship toward interdependence, helping you maintain your *independence*. 💛
.
.
Tonight in the United States, people will be watching fireworks and gathering with friends to celebrate independence. My challenge to you: Tonight, while the sparks fly, ask yourself how will you commit to your own independence (and interdependence!) in your relationship. Your relationship can only work when you're truly in it, too 💛

Standing in your power...
.
.
means you accept yourself as you are right now and knowing what you are capable of.
.
@hillaryfoster_mft .
We have all heard this phrase before before but what does it actually mean? To me it is taking 💯 % responsibility for your life! The good and the bad. You recognize that everything that is happening in your life is a result of your response to events that have occurred. You have the ability to change your perception thereby changing how you feel about it. You are the creator of your reality. This is a really good thing! By standing in your power you can embrace the concept that everything is happening for you not to you. With this you can feel at ease knowing that through difficult experiences great lessons are learned. When we stand in our power we are the closet to being our truest selves, in alignment with source, and fully supported by the Universe 🙌🏻✨💗

I often get clients who tell me they want to “find their other half.” Looking for our “other half” implies that we are a half a person. Which leads to unfulfilling relationships. I help my clients first and foremost develop a strong sense of self because that is the key to secure relationships. This is true with marriage, with family, and with friendships. Hold on to the qualities that make you, you.
.
.
People with a strong sense of “self” take ownership for their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They do not make others responsible.  When we have a strong sense of self, we are better able to be vulnerable in relationships, to handle intimacy and not ‘run’ in fear.
.
.
Having a strong sense of self means being able to soothe yourself, be calm when our loved ones are away from us, if we are in conflict, or if we are not in a relationship because our strength and identity does not come from others. .
.
By working on yourself through identifying your limited beliefs, creating new habits and reparenting yourself you can have a strong sense of self. I can help you cultivate a strong relationship with yourself so that you can find a fulfilling relationship with others. Message me for a free phone/Skype consultation!

“I know love is supposed to be hard, but…”
.
.
.
No. Love is not supposed to be hard.
.
.
.
Love is patient, kind. It is not proud or rude. It does not keep score.
.
.
.
Love is also raw, and because it involves touching our hearts, it can be sad and tender. .
.
.
Signing up for love does pretty much guarantees hurt at some point (see sad and tender, above), but it is not hard. And because we know this, we guard our hearts and the fierceness of our guarding can make love challenging, but not hard. .
.
.
If you love someone who makes you think love is hard, they’re not returning love back to you. Go find it elsewhere. .
.
.
It’s there, somewhere, waiting for you.

Do you know how you interact with others?.
.
.
The images presentation an interaction cycle [this can be used for partners, family, friends, colleagues- pretty much anyone you interact with!].
.
.
IMAGE 1 shows the process of an interaction during communication [verbal or nonverbal]. First, it begins with the first individual or [partner A] doing an action. Second, partner be responds to that action with an action. Third, partner A responds to partner B's action with a feeling. Fourth, partner B responds to that action with a feeling.
.
.
IMAGE 2 shows a nonfunctional interaction cycle. Partner A expresses concerns. Partner B responds to those concerns by feeling blamed or criticized by partner A. Partner A then withdrawals or becomes anxious. Lastly, partner B then withdrawals and becomes anxious.
.
.
IMAGE 3 shows a functional interaction cycle. Partner A expresses feelings to partner B. Partner B becomes curious about partner A's feelings. Partner A feels heard. Lastly, partner B feels closer to partner A.
.
.
This is just one example and the actions and feelings can be changed with anything. For example instead of withdrawing a partner may begin to pursue the other partner or instead of feeling blamed a partner could feel threatened.
.
.
It's important to note how we interact with others- specifically how we respond and WHAT made us respond that way. In my opinion asking WHY only perpetuates a nonfunctional cycle. So instead, ask yourself what the other person said or did that made you respond in that manner. Then ask yourself WHERE you have experienced similar responses in your life and WHO else talked to you or did that action to you in the same way.
.
.
[NOTE: There are many ways to draw an interaction cycle this is just the one that makes sense to me and my work)

Have you ever felt that feeling of frazzled disorganization on a Monday morning? Many of us have experienced at least once (whether it's happened on Monday or any other day). To combat that feeling, take some time before the start of the week to set intentions with your partner. What are your goals for the week? What needs to happen? How will you support each other? Setting intentions for the week (or just the day, if that's where you need to start) can help you start the week off in harmony, rather than in dissonance. 🎵
.

Do you and your partner set intentions for the upcoming week? Let me know in the comments! 🎵

🧡 Sex and Love addiction is one way of understanding a particular type of attachment disorder.
⠀⠀
🧡 Different to pure sex addiction, which is an addiction to the act of sex, sex and love addiction is usually a trauma response based in infant experiences of feeling abandoned and unseen. 🧡 The act of sex within sex and love addiction is usually a desperate attempt to feel loved and known. Unfortunately because sex is such a grown up activity, it usually re traumatises us in some way, until we move into a more developmentally mature place.

🧡 There will always be a part of you that rememberers how it feels to be abandoned.

🧡 The transformation out of that place is so very painful for sensitive hearts because we fight it, we cling to the love we think is going to change things, the smallest whisper, the tiniest crumb.

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. I say this to my clients often. In many relationships, partners are speaking foreign languages to one another or doing a LOT of talking with very little comprehension or understanding. For many years, this was the downfall to many of my relationships. Gaining insight in this helps me help others. I LOVE couple work. #relationshiptherapist #couplework #couplegoals #growth #letmehelp #couples #relationships #therapist #therapy #counseling #counselor #selfcare #communication #love #lovelanguages #serenity #serenitycounseling

Happy Saturday, people! Meditation 🧘🏾‍♀️ has helped me tremendously through this pregnancy. But, in this 9th month, it has soothed my anxiety about labor, calmed my insecurities about being enough to my child, and (for the most part) gotten these hormones in check (sorta).
▪️
I’m sharing this quote because it is this vision of surrendering to and riding the air that can keep us in a meditative state through all the madness.

Imagine yourself weightless, surrendering to the air around you, floating past any stress; riding by fears; making your way to your peace. #Imagine #Surrender #ToniMorrison

Like everything in life, awareness is the beginning of change...overthinking can be a habit, and we need to learn to be aware of it before we can address it!
I see it by my own 9 year old daughter.. who always seem to overthink new challenges, and I can comfortably say, that it’s caused by a single emotion “fear” When we focus on all the negative things that might happen, it's so easy to become paralysed and anxious ..I do try to explain that maybe she could look at what could go right ..and not at what could go wrong all the time
It’s also important to put things in to perspective, as it’s so easy to make things bigger and more negative than they need to be. So the next time you catch yourself making a mountain out of a molehill, ask yourself how much it will matter in five years. Or, next month, for that matter changing up the time frame, can help shut down overthinking... and also remember , every opportunity is a new beginning, a place to start again...to grow and evolve 🌺#newbeginnings #awareness #overthinking #newchallenges #mentoring #supportingpeople #supportingparents #lovingoneself #instagram #instagram_kids #instagramer #therapist #relationshiptherapist #therapeuticparenting #supportingrelationships #beingcreative 🌺

Relationship Myth:
Relationships should always be 50/50
~
How many of you have heard, or believe, our intimate relationships should ALWAYS be an even split? The truth is, relationships are rarely an even 50/50 split, all the time. Compromise is rarely a 50/50 split, all the time.
~
By holding on the belief that our intimate relationships should be an even split in every situation, we are - in a way - keeping score, which usually leads to conflict with our partners.
~
So what does a healthy split look like? Sometimes it might feel like 60/40, or 80/20, and so on... Some days it might feel like we’re on the lower side of the split, and others the higher, and that’s okay! Communicating wants and needs and checking in with our partners on a frequent basis is key!
~
*on a side note, if you’re feeling like you’re constantly on the low side it’s important to communicate (even seek help) with your partner to avoid a build up of bitterness and resentment.

Yesterday I posted about Dr. John Gottman’s (@gottmaninstitute) 4 horsemen communication patterns. These are the antidotes to those communication patterns and how you can move towards healthier, more conscious ways of communicating with your partner.
Criticism -> you are frustrated with your partner and you can't quite figure out how to let them know? First stop and ask yourself what is the need you are asking to get met? Reflect on this and state, ' I am feeling ___________, would you mind if we tried ___________?” Contempt -> in healthy relationships there should be mutual respect and shared roles. Expressing gratitude towards your partner and reflecting on their positive qualities builds more positive interactions.
Defensiveness -> is way of protecting yourself from blame and shame. Take the time to stop, listen to your partners perspective, and accept any responsibility for your role in the situation.
Stonewalling -> you want to avoid conflict, but really that just gets the first three horsemen even more riled up and disconnected. If you find yourself wanting to withdrawal ask for a time out and find ways to self soothe (see self-soothing post).

Today’s topic is Sexual arousal vs. Sexual desire with a post inspired by @kristinbhodson ✨🔥🧠please check this IG account out for a deeper dive in #sexualhealth and #sexeducation ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Did you know that there’s a difference between sexual desire and sexual arousal? These two concepts are easily confused and often, but not always, intertwined.
#Desire refers to wanting and longing. It can occur spontaneously, or as a response to someone else pursuing us.
#Arousal is a physiological response to to a sexual stimuli, resulting in erections, vaginal lubrication and/or increased blood flow to the genitals.
Arousal can stimulate desire. Desire can stimulate arousal. However, we should never assume that one always infers the other. According to @kristinbhodson , “Being wet or not wet, erect or not erect, are matters of physiology. Arousal body responses never mean that another person gets to interpret that as wanting and move forward with a sexual advance without #consent”. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••Confusing arousal with desire can be harmful. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Someone may deeply desire their partner, but struggle with becoming aroused due to #stress, medical issues, or substance abuse. Individuals may experience physiological arousal and yet not want to act on it.
Knowing the difference between arousal and desire can help us understand our bodies and our #sexualconnection with others.

During a consultation, I can almost guarantee the question, 'how long...how long will I need to be in therapy, how long before I see results...?' My answer is: You determine your time. Healing cannot be rushed and it is dependent upon you doing the work.
When sessions get scaled back, it's because we (client and myself) both see progress and growth. This can be bittersweet because while the therapist-client relationship has flourished, it is the time when the relationship changes and the client fully begins to use all of the tools learned throughout the therapy process on their own.
But don't trip....I offer a swinging door and I do check ins for past clients and they come see me on an as needed basis! #atlantatherapy #atlantatherapist #atlantacounseling #relationshiptherapist #couplestherapist #atlantacouplestherapist #atlantafamilytherapy #atlantawomensgroup #atlantalifecoach

As we approach the end of the week, ask yourself, 'Do I feel like there is never enough hours in a day?' The same day that everyone else has? I encourage you to reflect back on your time, schedule, and things you have done this week, and cut things out that are wasting your time. Did you manage your time efficiently? What does that mean for you?
For me, managing my time efficiently means making time for self, relaxation, going out, and family. This week I chose to go out to dinner, watch Scare Tactics on Netflix (because I laughed so much, I included that as part of my self care), I had good conversations with friends, and went to my parent's house and just sat and chatted about nothing. I'm usually always on the go and never make time to just sit and be present.
Not everything or everyone will deserve your time. Time is the gift that's given and we can never get back. If you understand how valuable time is, you'd be more particular about who and what you choose to spend your time on. #atlantatherapy #atlantatherapist #atlantacounseling #relationshiptherapist #couplestherapist #atlantacouplestherapist #atlantafamilytherapy #atlantawomensgroup #atlantalifecoach

YOUR IMAGO, pt. 1
•
•
🤔Think for a minute about some part of your being that you feel is deficient. What is it? Maybe you feel that you lack artistic talent, or strong emotions, or the ability to think clearly and rationally...
•
•
💮Can this lack of yours have an impact on which partner will you choose?
•
•
💮Years ago, when you were around people who were especially strong in these areas, you probably were even more aware of your shortcomings. But if you managed to form an intimate relationship with one of these “gifted people,” you experienced quite a different reaction. Instead of feeling awestruck or envious, you suddenly felt more complete.
•
•
💮Being emotionally attached to this person—this is “my” boyfriend or “my” girlfriend—made his or her attributes feel a part of a larger, more fulfilled you. It was as if you had merged with the other person and become a whole.
•
•
💮If you look closer, you will find clear evidence that people choose mates with complementary traits.What people are doing in these yin/yang matches is trying to reclaim their lost selves by proxy. So, many of intimate relationships start this way: searching for our 'lost', repressed parts of ourselves. When we find it in a specific person 'we fall in love'.
•
•
💮So, what are you really searching for in others that you think you don't have?

When we divide personality traits into categories like “good” and “bad”; “aspirational” and “condemned”; “powerful” and “weak” we are in turn subscribing to, creating or supporting social expectations, which are ideas about who people “should” be according to their gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, race and so on.
.
Here are some examples. Authentic vs inauthentic, energetic vs lethargic, confident vs shy. Upon reading them do you instinctually think one is good and one is bad? Think that perspective is just a universal shared belief?
Think again. Let’s take “productivity” vs “laziness”. In the Tudor times, being busy (something we today associate with success) was associated with being poor. To sit and command orders of others from the comfort of one’s own home; to spend more hours in leisure than in work, was praised (I’m referencing the work of Barbara Ehrenreich here).
.
I’m not saying the perpetuating societal beliefs of one given time are any better than another, the whole point here is to steer away from binaries!
.
It’s just useful to note that when it feels like we’re pressuring ourselves to be more productive, more authentic, more decisive, more socially renowned, more patient and so on, these “pursuits” of self-improvement have actually been historically and culturally informed. These pressures are not coming from “inside” of you, from “inner dialogues”.
.
The only real question is, “have my ways of living and thinking served me as they promised me at the beginning, or have they actually been hindering or harming me?”

I don't have a well planned out thought.. or an artfully crafted post because this idea can be applied to many contexts and circumstances.
.
.
So, I invite you to take it in the context you NEED or RESONATE with.
.
.
Just a reminder that it takes two to make a relationship function while it only takes one to end it.
.
.
How did this resonate with you?

VULNERABILITY // I love how much we talk about vulnerability nowadays and how open we are about our lives, struggles, fears, dreams.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let's not forget that vulnerability still takes time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Forced vulnerability can do a lot of damage. It can leave people feeling exposed, with a lot of shame, and deeply hurt. This looks like...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- asking your favorite blogger for more personal information than they have already consented to share
- asking your partner, friend, family member to share their trauma
- forcing yourself to disclose something to someone you have not had time to fully process yourself. Yes, you can project forced vulnerability on yourself. *This is probably the one to be most aware of because it can lead to unhealthy boundaries with others*
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Vulnerability is a delicate dance we all partake in and just like anything that is fragile, it should be handled with care✨#TherapistsofInstagram #NYCTherapist #BlackSocialWorker #LatinxSocialWorker #MentalHealth #EmotionalHealth #NYCTherapy #Therapist #Therapists #Therapy #BlackMentalHealth #LatinxMentalHealth #BlackTherapist #LatinxTherapist #RelationshipTherapist #NYCCouplesTherapist

My circle knows I am an advocate for (what my friends call) 'The Shutdown'. For years, perhaps dating back to high school, I have always practiced, time to myself. While this made many of my friends understandly upset, it was so beneficial to my healing process. Leading up to this period of time, several things could be occurring, such as anxiety, a substantial amount of stress, feelings of being overwhelmed, heartache, confusion...you name it!
Many times, that alone time helps to clear your mind, sort things out emotionally and mentally, regroup and refocus.
However, at the same time, know when to reach out for help. That's what friends are there for. Know and understand the difference between being hidden for the betterment of your mental health and healing, and when hidden becomes isolation due to depression or unhealthy thoughts.
If you are hidden out of fear, please reach out for help.

My circle knows I am an advocate for (what my friends call) 'The Shutdown'. For years, perhaps dating back to high school, I have always practiced, time to myself. While this made many of my friends understandly upset, it was so beneficial to my healing process.

The power of life and death is in our tongue. 👅⁠
⁠
This small little muscle is responsible for so much of our joy as well as our worry. ⁠
⁠
When we speak words that are positive and kind - to ourself as well as others, the more joy we have. ☺️⁠
⁠
Remember that your words are powerful. ⁠
⁠
What you say and don't say matters. ⁠
Words can hurt, and words can heal. ⁠
⁠
Do you find yourself speaking negatively about yourself and others?⁠
⁠
In a kind and compassionate way, decide to give people - (yourself included), the benefit of the doubt.⁠
⁠
Most people are doing the best they can with the resources that they have. ⁠
⁠
Yes, there’s a place for feedback, ….but choose the time, tone and words wisely.⁠
⁠
Ask the question, “Is it worth it?” ⁠
⁠
Giving feedback that brings great outcomes requires skill and commitment in the relationship. I cover this more in my upcoming workshop, ‘Elevate your Wellbeing’.⁠
⁠
A general rule…..when in doubt, choose compassion, forgiveness and kindness. 💗⁠
⁠
It feels good, it helps others feel good and it promotes a happier world. 🌏⁠
⁠
Or if not for any other reason, it's good for our health!

Arguments. We all have them. In most cases, arguments arise when two conflicting opinions clash in conversation - it’s not a “bad” thing. It’s an opportunity to seek clarity.
.
I believe arguments can be healthy! I also believe that avoiding arguments when one is due can be unhealthy. The key: navigate them wisely and with care.
.
Communication is not as simple as sending a message and it being received in the exact way it was intended to land. There’s this thing called “noise”, and today I wanted to talk about the particular noise of the receiver’s biases.
.
Our personal human experiences frame and determine how we receive messages. Question is, when we’re the sender, how can we ensure the message lands in the best possible way? Like when giving feedback, standing our ground or explaining complex ideas?
.
Three things, I think:
1️⃣ Empathy
2️⃣ Compassion
3️⃣ Ownership
.
In being compassionate of someone’s past and current suffering, and being empathetic to the fact that our understandings and opinions are shaped inevitably by past experiences and traumas, we loosen our grip on being right and thinking “I’m a great communicator, excuse me, why are you being an idiot and not understanding me”.
.
Therefore, we then also take ownership in the fact that OUR past experiences also shape how WE construct the messages we send. Let’s be humble in our views of ourselves as communicators.
.
I’ve done a Bachelor of Professional Communications and I practice as a narrative therapist but I will never be a perfect expert in communicating! It’s a fact of life that there are too many things wrestling with the message on its journey to be received that mean we will NEVER fully understand someone COMPLETELY.

Before graduate school (2 years ago), I ran, I did yoga, I saved money, I traveled, I had fun, I lived, and loved. I found myself. I moved to Philadelphia from Grand Forks, ND and fell in love with the city. School was okay (I hate reading) but it felt so comfortable. I had a group of people that were forced to be around me for 2 whole years. I had my ups and downs. I went to therapy and supervison weekly and I found myself growing in so many ways. I actually cannot believe how different I think compared to 2 years ago. Then I graduated. I no longer felt like I had friends [with the exception of my lovely partner]. I felt and still feel isolated. The city I loved now feels like too much to handle. I feel like I lost myself.
.
.
Reflecting on this transition I realize that graduate school is a fucked up system that DOES NOT PROVIDE EMOTIONAL SUPPORT OR FINANCIAL SUPPORT....And that is not my fault. I did not lose myself. I made a part of myself more present to meet my needs at the time and I am grateful for that because i wouldn't be here!
.
.
But now I have new needs.
.
.
So to meet those needs I'm bringing back the thing that supported me so much. Yoga. I'm going to be doing Yoga with Adriene's 30 day 'Dedicate' journey......and I dedicate this journey to all my cool followers and also myself🌈

How do you know when your needs change?

This morning, I did my third TV segment for Cheddar. 🧀⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Never in my wildest dreams did I think that while I was visiting family and my best friend in Orange County I'd get an e-mail from a booking producer to come on virtually and comment on new research studies. 🎥⁣⠀
⁣⠀
I did 2 on-air segments via Skype during my trip down here in SoCal. One of them didn't make it to their site, but this one did! 👏🏼⁣⠀
⁣⠀
This morning, I woke up at 5am (yay time changes!) to come on and talk with Jill and Hena about a new study claiming that finding a nice partner rather than one you share similar interests with is better for a successful relationship. ❤️⁣⠀
⁣⠀
I got to talk about KINDNESS and EMPATHY in relationships - on a live segment. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
That's a definite dream come true. ⁣⠀

What is your favorite gesture of intimacy?⁠⠀
Reposted from @blacklovedoc (@get_regrann) - Intimacy is more than just sexual❤️ It can be slow dancing in the living room to your favorite song or something as simple as having a conversation about your goals! Intimacy isn’t something that manifests itself out of nowhere. It really is something that you and your partner have to consciously work at every single day that you’re together😊️🙏🏾 ⁠⠀

Who's your biggest cheerleader? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Over the past few years in this business, my hubby has never failed to support me through my many ups and downs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You know when going gets tough, your sense of self diminishes, and your doubts start flooding, it's crucial to have someone who knows you deep down and who has faith in you even when you don't. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Whenever I need someone to yank me out of a pity party, he is always there, and I couldn't be luckier. Who does the same for you?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Initiating sex is vulnerable.⁣
⁣
I never knew it because I never did it. ⁣
⁣
I am sorry for not seeing the strength it took you to ask for the love you needed all of these years & I celebrate the commitment you had to our relationship even when I couldn't feel it and all you got back was no.

Monday Motivation
For years, I struggle with trying to find happiness in other things or people. Which resulted in me never feeling complete. Until one day I made a choice.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Envision your happiness
2. How does it look
3. How does it feels
4. Make a decision to create 'Your'happy. It's a daily choice. #faithwalk #heartsmended

It's so easy to focus on what we don't have... our mistakes... what isn't going right... everything we're still yet to do...⁠
⁠
The news highlights many of the problems of the world. ⁠
⁠
Media tells us all the things we should change about ourselves. ⁠
⁠
To focus on the good in our lives and feel more hopeful, inspired and uplifted requires being intentional. 🌟⁠
⁠
It doesn't have to take long. Simple is best. 🌻⁠
⁠Every day may not be good, BUT there is something good in every day. ⁠

Many people struggle to stay optimistic and that can cause strain on relationships and health.⁠
⁠
The way we look at the world determines how we feel. ⁠
⁠
The world has a lot of problems, there's no denying that. ⁠
⁠
But just because we can find lots of things to feel down about, doesn’t mean that we should focus on them.⁠
⁠
In fact, optimism creates opportunity – while pessimism can shut it down.⁠
⁠
Research in Clinical Practice and Epidemiology in Mental Health shows that optimism heavily influences physical and mental health. 🏄‍♀️🧠⁠
⁠
It suggests that optimists are significantly more successful than pessimists.⁠
⁠
Often, our greatest feelings of wellbeing come from achieving a healthy inner world – a feeling of peace and contentment. ✨⁠
⁠
Regardless of where you’re at, the good news is that you have within you right now the power to build a healthy mindset and an optimistic outlook. 🌟⁠
⁠
How do you do this?⁠
⁠
Here are 3 ways: ⁠
⁠
1. Focus on what you want and how you want to be. 🔦⁠
2. Replace unhelpful self-talk with healthy self-talk ⁠
⁠
3. Practise Gratitude 🙏⁠
⁠
Do you have any other ways to help you stay optimistic?

Have you ever been around someone who refuses to acknowledge the new you and continuously hold you to the standards of the old you?
I definitely have. It's so frustrating and discouraging to your process and to who you're trying to become. I would literally go into a conversation, trying to brace and prepare myself to not be triggered and it's almost as if it entices the person to trigger you even more, you know, to just really push your buttons.
I would be so mad at myself for allowing a person to take me back to the old me and to have that much power over my emotions and reactions. But it was ok, because I understood that healing was not a one time thing. It was a continuous process. It was a daily challenge that I had to fight for and to work for. Now when someone comes looking for those old triggers, I don't even stay around long enough to entertain them! I'll quickly remove myself from that conversation or interaction to maintain my growth and who I've worked hard to be!
Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely not perfect, but I'm definitely not who I used to be 🙌🏽 Healing is a journey. Contact me today to begin your healing process! Trust me, it's worth it!

Independent (adj.): Not subject to control by others; self-governing. 🎆 .
.
Interdependent (adj.): Mutually reliant on one other, for the benefit of the relationship and individuals 💫 .
.
Independence and interdependence are both necessary for relationships to truly thrive, otherwise, the individuals get lost in trying to be what the other person wants. Knowing your values (and your prospective partner's) at the onset of a relationship can help guide your relationship toward interdependence, helping you maintain your *independence*. 💛
.
.
Tonight in the United States, people will be watching fireworks and gathering with friends to celebrate independence. My challenge to you: Tonight, while the sparks fly, ask yourself how will you commit to your own independence (and interdependence!) in your relationship. Your relationship can only work when you're truly in it, too 💛

I just finished reading The Four Agreements- and WOW. I don’t know why I waited so long to absorb Ruiz’ words. I don’t think I was ready to move forward with my personal journey. I let my anxieties and self esteem issues paralyze me. I put up with a lot of external influence, familial pressure, and always let love absorb my focus. I’m scared to die alone. I’m scared I’m often misunderstood- even by those who should be cheering me on. .

But just two minutes ago- I finished a book I have been yearning to read since college. I’m so grateful the universe told me to pull it down from my shelf yesterday- and I’m so grateful read it from cover to cover in three sittings. .
.
.
This quote is what has stuck with me the most: .
.
“In your whole life nobody has ever abused you more than you have abused yourself. And the limit of your self-abuse is exactly the limit that you will tolerate from someone else. If someone abuses you a little more than you abuse yourself, you will probably walk away from that person. But if someone abuses you a little less than you abuse yourself, you will probably stay in the relationship and tolerate it endlessly.
.
“ If you abuse yourself badly, you can even tolerate someone who beats you up, humiliates you, and treats you like dirt. Why? Because in your belief system you say 'I deserve it. This person is doing me a favour by being with me. I'm not worthy of love and respect. I'm not good enough'. .
.
.
🦋 I have nothing more to say. I just want to leave you all with that passage. Do with it what you will. .

I just finished reading The Four Agreements- and WOW. I don’t know why I waited so long to absorb Ruiz’ words. I don’t think I was ready to move forward with my personal journey. I let my anxieties and self esteem issues paralyze me. I put up with a lot of external influence, familial pressure, and always let love absorb my focus. I’m scared to die alone. I’m scared I’m often misunderstood- even by those who should be cheering me on. . . . But just two minutes ago- I finished a book I have been yearning to read since college.

A good chunk of my oldest friends are men. As a result- I’ve learned so much from their experiences regarding the role of gender within relationship dynamics. It seems a repeating factor I always hear is that enough questions weren’t asked during the relationship to understand what your partner “actually meant” when XYZ was said. That your partner was unhappy, but you just didn’t know how deeply rooted their upset went before they snapped. That you did the same things every day without worrying your partner doesn’t feel loved- because you know you love them... so why would they start to feel otherwise? .
.
.
While I believe relationships shouldn’t feel like A War Zone 24/7. Effort always needs to be put in. Everyday doesn’t need to be date night, or full of expensive surprises. Though take more time to think about your partner during the day- and find a small form of action to take that will break the regular cycle. If you have time to sit on the toilet for 30 minutes a day reading about team drafts- then I know you can spend 5 of those minutes coming up with something to say or do to make your partners life easier that day, to make them smile, to give them a future plan to look forward to. .

Four common father-child relationship styles that often result in daddy issues:
The enmeshed dad is overly involved, and the child appears to like it.
The controlling dad makes every decision for the child, despite the child complaining or rebelling.
The abandoning dad does not typically step in because he falsely believes his children want to and can make all of their own decisions.
The clueless dad doesn’t step in when a child is rebelling and clearly needing (almost demanding) boundaries.
Read here ⬇ to learn more about these relationship styles and how a healthy father-child relationship looks.

MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS!!!.
.

When you are showing off all your fun self care (yoga, acupuncture, those getaways y'all do)- You are targeting a specific population. I MEAN VERY SPECIFIC POPULATION.
.
.
If you are really considering everyone in your work. You don't need to show us your lavish trips or your weekly self care routines. We get it. We need y'all to provide support and space for everyone. [This coming from a white (educated) but poor cis woman] I feel like those spaces are not for me.
.
.
So imagine how marginalized and oppressed individuals feel.

Food for thought.

To say I am obsessed with the beach is an understatement. I don't know why, but nothing can upset me while I am there. I could spend hours lying down under the sun, listening to the sounds around me.
.
.
Some mornings I meditate to the sound of ocean waves. It calms my system, and brings it back to homeostasis. While my homeostasis is elevated compared to some- it feels safe.
.
.
.
Where do you feel safe?

Have you ever felt that you were losing yourself in the relationship? Likely, your partner never expected you to do so. Why do we tend to do this? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Due to our emotional attachment wounding, we often find ourselves sacrificing for the relationship. Due to our parents' failure to attune to us completely, we've felt that we needed to disown the parts of ourselves so we can maintain the relationship with our folks. All of this happens unconsciously, outside of our awareness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This becomes our procedural tendency when it comes to close relationships. Somehow you wind up feeling that you need to adjust yourself to get love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, what happens is that you wind up unhappy, resentful, and feeling that you ultimately don't get that love because you are afraid to show up as you. You ultimately crave to be loved for all that you are while at the same time, you are not open to that love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Join me today on FB live with fabulous @kendragpa at 12 PM PST to talk about how you can break boundaries that prevent you from showing up as yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I get it... we have completed 6 months of 2019 and have 6 more before 2020. I know there are things to do... BUT, you can’t get to those goals until you take care of yourself.
▪️
Getting ready for baby girl has me making every attempt to meet deadlines and wrap everything up BEFORE the month ends. I keep forgetting about myself, though.
▪️
New goal! This month I’m going to sit my tail down someplace, write in my pregnancy journal, and mentally prepare for my whole entire life to change. Yoga, meditation, rest, baths, and a massage will get me there.
▪️
What’s your self-care looking like this month? Don’t plan to reach your 2019 goals until you make a plan for self-care!

It's the first of the month and time to set some new monthly goals!
🇺🇸
This month my goal is to be more consistent with my personal goals of self-care which include going to the gym, eating home cooked meals, and remembering to stay hydrated during my sessions!
🇺🇸
Here is to being ready for a productive few days ahead, then spending time with family on Thursday and Friday!
🇺🇸
I should also share that @ModernWellnessCounseling will be closed on Thursday (7.4.19) and Friday (7.5.19) in observance of Independence Day. You can still schedule your sessions via the client portal if needed.
🇺🇸
Share what goals you will accomplish this month!!

Mondays can be hard. Adjustment to the hustle and bustle of traffic, work deadlines, etc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, what helps me is to ease into the week and remember to enjoy small moments. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Avoid thinking, 'ALL OR NONE.' Think small steps, small bites, small sips...Enjoy each and every one. Engage your senses in each. How can you do it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. If you are working in a cold airconditioned office, go out in the sun for five minutes and enjoy the warmth of the sun on your back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Sip your coffee or tea, and for those moments, just focus on that action. Feel the creamy smooth texture with just perfect temperature sliding down your throat. Smell the sweet and bitter aroma colliding in your nose. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Then inhale fresh air and feel the coolness in your nostrils and satisfaction in your chest when you get that oxygen. Listen to the sound of air going through your body. Exhale slowly feeling the warmth in your nose. Do you feel calmer already? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These are just some of the examples. There are so many ways to be mindful. It's not all about meditation. I love engaging my senses fully in the activities I'm doing. Small things make a big difference. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tell me, friend, what little things will you do for yourself to make your week better?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I was raised to believe that you must tell the people you love, that you love them. It sounds simple, yet is so often not said/heard. Especially for my lovely dudes out there- you miss a lot of opportunities to bond deeper with your family and friends by assuming “they know”. .
.
We NEED to break out of the gender norms that fuel toxic masculinity, because vulnerability is beautiful, sexy, and the key to furthering our success on this planet. Boys- tell your male friends that you love them, ask them for a hug. See how their day is REALLY going. And when asked- be honest with your friends. .
.
Regardless of gender- we ALL need to do a better job at encouraging vulnerability from ALL humans. It’s time to bond, it’s time to feel uncomfortable, to listen, to learn, to grow, to spread love, and value diversity. This isn’t JUST a “male” issue, However, I decided to write my thoughts down about this today as I’ve been seeing it pop up recently as a huge barrier to a lot of my male friends success in relationships and friendships.
.
.
.
What are your thoughts? How do you think we can further the spread of platonic and romantic love within our relationships? .

Especially for my lovely dudes out there- you miss a lot of opportunities to bond deeper with your family and friends by assuming “they know”. . . We NEED to break out of the gender norms that fuel toxic masculinity, because vulnerability is beautiful, sexy, and the key to furthering our success on this planet. Boys- tell your male friends that you love them, ask them for a hug. See how their day is REALLY going. And when asked- be honest with your friends. . . Regardless of gender- we ALL need to do a better job at encouraging vulnerability from ALL humans. It’s time to bond, it’s time to feel uncomfortable, to listen, to learn, to grow, to spread love, and value diversity. This isn’t JUST a “male” issue, However, I decided to write my thoughts down about this today as I’ve been seeing it pop up recently as a huge barrier to a lot of my male friends success in relationships and friendships. . . . What are your thoughts? How do you think we can further the spread of platonic and romantic love within our relationships? . . . . . . . . #girlswhotravel #girlslovetravel #GLT #travel #queer #queertravel #queertraveler #gaytraveler #europe #germany #berlin #berlinadventures #globaltraveler #travelphotography #nycfashion #travelfashion #brooklyngirl #fashion #globetrotter #likeforlikes #like4likes #relationshipadvice #relationshiptherapist #mentalhealth #strongerrelationships #strengthen #love #lover #bekind #bevulnerable

Let’s talk about breakups. 💔 They’re not easy, and they’re not fun. Sometimes they may seem premature, sometimes they’re very overdue. But if you’re not being treated to the capacity you know you deserve, you’ve already expressed the areas in which you’re unhappy, and a decent chunk of time has passed with no change, or even worse behavior- its time to put yourself first. Love is beautiful, but it can also hurt- a lot. 🌿 If you feel comfortable- comment below some of the reasons you’ve decided to end a relationship (platonic, romantic, familial, etc.). ❤️ AND Don’t forget to put the amount of love into yourself that you see yourself putting into others ❤️ .
