I loved our conversation with Ryann - it was so refreshing and authentic. She said this quote above in the middle of our conversation and it just stuck with me. Mostly because I have been there!

I am so proud of the fact that my daughter, especially sees me pursuing what it is that I want to do. What it is that I need to do, whether that's like going to a conference or going on vacation, or like taking time for myself or pursuing something that I love cause I don't want for her to...

Therapy is Necessary Aug 02, 2021

Therapy - Just the word can evoke so many conflicting emotions- fear, failure, anxiety, relief, angst, joy. All of those emotions are valid and not any of them should keep you from therapy when it is needed! I have been to a therapist during many seasons in my life and it was always so helpful to...
