•••If you're struggling with something, Be patient, you haven't been forgotten••• . Take a minute to be grateful today and remember that whatever you're going through, is part of a greater plan. We might not be able to see the end of our trials, but our Father can, and He is taking care of us. We'll be blessed for our patience, faith and diligence. We are not alone. GOD LOVES US. We are His children. . I'm sharing here a picture with my favorite scripture verses that talk about trials and blessings. You're welcome to save the picture as a reminder that you're not alone on this. . This scripture always gives me hope that anything I'm going through will get better with time; that I'll be able to face and confront the things I'm worried, anxious, sad, and stressed about. . But it goes farther than that. It makes me feel hope for the future.... I know how imperfect I am, I know how many mistakes I make on a daily basis, I know all my weaknesses, and Our Father in Heaven does too, but the amazing thing is... HE STILL LOVES US! He loves EVERY.SINGLE.THING. that we do, that we are, and that we will become. . . I had the strong feeling I had to share this tonight. I know I've been posting a lot about positive things to do to face your emotional challenges and the things that have worked for me... However, this doesn't mean that I'm cured or that I'm the happiest girl alive that has no problems and no mid-life-crisis' anymore. I'm still me. With my imperfections and weaknesses. . So here it goes for you and me: You've got this! Si se puede! ♡ . 》What is your favorite scripture? Do you have one in mind that you'd like to share?《 . . . . . . . . #ldsart #latterdaysaint #churchofjesuschrist #ldsscripture #ldsquote  #myemotionaljourney #selflove #lovelife #lifeisgood #yourenotalone #loveyourself #selfconfidence #motivational #begrateful #godlovesyou #mentalhealthawareness #copingskills #supportgroup #therapyiscool #mentalhealthmatters #mindfulness #therapy

As a therapist I talk to women all day who struggle with the issue of accepting help. What is it that cause us to not only not ask, but also not accept unsolicited help? Even when we look like this ⬆️? ⁣ ⁣ Last week I was on a flight with my 6 month old. I actually have 3 kiddos. But was flying alone. Only having one gives me the feeling that I’m a super star. I got this. It’s just me and the baby. ⁣ ⁣ I was flying Southwest and got an early boarding assignment, plus family boarding. I got this. ⁣ ⁣ I end up sitting next to a lovely woman who has grown girls. She cooed at my baby and seemed delighted we were sitting with her. ⁣ ⁣ Over and over she offered help. And I kept saying no. Why? I could certainly use help even though I didn’t need it. ⁣ ⁣ She offered to carry my bag getting off the plane and I said “oh no, I got this” but she insisted. And carried it all the way to the curb. She made my flight so much easier and was such a delight. ⁣ ⁣ But after I wondered why I had declined her help? ⁣ ⁣ Real question ladies. Why do we say no to help? Why don’t we ask for help more often? ⁣ ⁣  #mentalhealth #mentalwellness #mindful #mindfulness #therapyiscool #phoenixtherapy #phoenixtherapist #helpyourself #askforhelp #momtribe #knowyourself #loveyourself #therapy #scottsdaletherapy #scottsdaletherapist #azmoms #mindfulmom #foodforthought #grateful #mentalhealth #selfcare #momshelpingmoms #womenhelpingwomen #igotthisshit #igotthis #azmom #scottsdaleaz #scottsdale #flyingwithkids #southwest
Yes to therapy! @revelatori #therapyworks #therapyhelps #therapyiscool #gethelp #livelifelovelife
Affirmations plus action = change. We can’t have one without the other. Just Speaking kindly to ourselves and thinking compassionate thoughts does not automatically help us grow and change for the better. What it does do though is help encourage us to take consistent action towards achieving our goals and values.
Emotions are not negative and we can learn to respond rather than react! #counseling #mentalhealthawareness #therapyiscool #therapy #erinjonescounselor #happiness #positivevibes #selflove #respond #wisemind

When I first started my journey with Intuitive Eating I remember getting so down when I found myself eating past what felt good. Many nights I’d beat myself up for being overly full. It was rough and I so badly needed to be reminded that is was OK.  Just Incase your having a day where you feel the same, here’s your reminder — it’s OK if you overate. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with you. Finding freedom with food is a long process. You will get there. Give yourself grace and move on, no guilt necessary. 😘  Also, how amazing do these donuts from @levainbakery look? Keith and I got two and split them. They were amazing! 🤗🍩 .  #authenticity #haes #intuitiveeating #bopo #dietculture #selflove #intuitiveeating #haes  #foodfreedom #therapyiscool #recovery#mentalhealthmatters #emotions#balance #mindfulness #mindful#meditate #meditation #selflove#anxiety  #selflove#eatingdisorderrecovery#edwarrior #antidiet#mentalhealthawareness#psychology #therapy#bodyimage #anorexia#bopo #intuitiveeating#mentalhealth #selfcompassion#haes #healthateverysize#selfcare #exercise
Depression can feel overwhelming, like you’ve hit a wall. You’ve stopped feeling joyful at things you used to love. You’re tired. All the time. You know there is better than this. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ One Breath Healing is a practice of women helping women. We get it.

This week we are going to be reflecting on all things love: being in love, getting out of love, toxic love and the challenging road to self-love! Healing starts when you are able to self-reflect on toxic patterns and work through unresolved trauma in a way that feels safe for you, at your own pace. We often stay stuck, many times in flight, fight or freeze trauma response patterns and continue to do harm to ourselves because we don’t take the take the time to heal the hurting pieces. Healing is scary AF but it’s well worth our efforts! We survive to learn to navigate chaos and trauma and become so emotionally disconnected that to heal and better our mental health feels too foreign a concept, too scary a task, feels too hard and sometimes feels too impossible to achieve. But I’m telling y’all, therapy can change the game, and will have you connecting the dots of your narrative in a way you never imagined! It really could all be that simple, loves!! Not painless, but definitely worth the journey! __________________________  #mentalhealthmatters #minoritymentalhealth #goodtherapy #therapythoughts #affirmations #mindfullife #counselinghelps #growthquotes #mindset  #browngirlmagic #therapyforblackgirls #positivethinking #spiritjunkie #universehasyourback #loveyourself #healyourself #amorpropio #chingona #positivepsychology #resilience #resiliencia_humana #loveislove #lauyrnhill #toxictraits #lboogie #therapistsofinstagram #emotionalhealth #therapyiscool #healingjourney #loveislove #selfdiscoveryjourney
•••Don't be scared to be yourself.••• .  Some people are meant to stay in our lives forever, some others are not. . The people that choose to stay will enjoy and love your company, your smile, your thoughts, your mind... and that's what matters the most. . Always be yourself, with the good and the not so good. Always try your best, even when today's "best self" is not as good as yesterday's. . Anyone would be lucky to have you in their lives. DON'T ever think less of yourself when things don't go the way you want them to go. Things always work out at the end. We have a loving Heavenly Father who has a plan for us. We just need to trust Him and be patient. . ••••The pieces of the puzzle will fall in the right place eventually.••• DON'T GIVE UP. . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . #myemotionaljourney #selflove #lovelife #lifeisgood #yourenotalone #loveyourself #selfconfidence #motivational #begrateful #godlovesyou #mentalhealthawareness #copingskills #supportgroup #therapyiscool #mentalhealthmatters #mindfulness #therapy #selflove #mentalhealth #selfcompassion #emotions #meditation #anxietyhacks #lifestyle #lifehack
So why do we still compare ourselves with others?!?! It can be so tempting to play the comparison game, but recognizing the beauty of where we’re at can help us experience joy - even in the little things. .

How do you overcome fear? You FACE IT. . Growing up I was a confident & out going kid. Until 8th grade. I still remember the time my confidence and self-esteem shattered. There was the typical classroom bully who picked on kids and decided who was cool and who was not. I will never forget the day the teacher walked out of the room and he convinced the entire class to turn towards me and throw candy at me all at once. I will always remember the feeling of being pelted and laughed at. I can still see the room and myself falling out of my chair with feelings of embarrassment and shame. The bullying didn’t stop there. I was an outcast the rest of the school year. I can still feel the emotional pain that it caused me and I unfortunately let this experience negatively impact my life for the an entire decade. . I’m just like you, I’ve had 0 self confidence, no self love and let the fear of other people’s opinons of me control my life. I used to be someone who only saw the bad, the negative and lack thereof. I have felt lost and depressed. I have struggled with my weight and my body image. And I have felt unfulfilled and lost in my career. Over the last several years I have not only changed my physical and mental health but have transformed every area of my life and found my purpose and passion. I recently left my corporate job after 6.5 years to become a full time entrepreneur. I openly share my life, my struggles and my past on social media unapologetically. I am living each day with confidence, happiness and fulfillment. I am 100% myself regardless of what others think of me. . . Today I wake up every day with a fire inside to help women who have struggled with the same things I have. Those who have been bullied, who have struggled with limiting beliefs and lack of confidence, who have struggled with their weight and negative body image. I have finally overcome my past and am living out God’s purpose for my life. I want the same for you! I want to help you
Mantras are phrases that can be used during meditation that assist you in creating a positive driving force in your life. It’s important to control our internal dialogue and enforce positive thoughts. These are five mantras that have helped me!
Truth ... what does it actually mean? And how do we determine when to use truth and for what purpose?  What are the costs and benefits of being truthful? What’s your relationship with truth? ... just a thought.

My style of self care: a book, tea and fishing🎣 = Natasha's heaven 😍 Curious to know how others incorporate self care....anyone??
As I write this, I admit there’s a part of me that feels uncomfortable as I try to force myself out of hermit mode but I also am really in a space where I’m trying to lean into discomfort. . . I have been doing a lot of work on myself lately— what does that look like? Meditating, journaling, therapy, visualizing. There are some days where I feel like I’m operating on a higher vibration than the things around me and other days I’m like “what am I doing?!” And sometimes that’s a scary thing to admit— especially when people have made comments that “it looks like things are so great!” and sometimes I think “omg I’m so sorry I’ve fooled you.” 😂 . . Don’t get me wrong, I know I have lots to be grateful for (I try to do a gratitude practice in the morning where I say out loud 5 things I’m grateful for) but also sometimes things are just tough! But I’m learning to be easier on myself as I learned recently from @kymventola that doing my best can look different each day . . I feel so much better for writing and sharing this! What are some life lessons you’ve learned lately? 📸: @kcinf
I’ve been thinking about this for a bit now... where my fellow over-thinkers at?! / Take time for yourself - time to cultivate friendships, move joyfully, Netflix and chill. Do things that fill your bucket and help you meet your needs. / But also... / Take time with yourself. Time to process your thoughts and feelings, journal, be by yourself without distraction. I think this is really important and something I have really been lacking recently. I guess the “for” and “with” could happen at the same time, like going for a walk without listening to music or a podcast? That could be my efficiency brain talking though... / Does this make sense? Can you relate? . . . . #selfcare #selfcarethoughts #intuitiveliving #youareenough #selfcareisntselfish #boringselfcare #timewithyourself
Take time for self care. Which of these activities could you use right now?
A couple weeks ago, I looked at Jim and asked him where he hopes to be in 5 years.  This conversation evolved into a much larger and longer one-- one that involved us actively dreaming together.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We imagined scenes of our life- from having “his and her” sinks in our future master bathroom to celebrating the day all of our student loans are paid off.  He shared goals and visions, within his life and career, that I’ve never heard him speak out loud before.  And, it gave me space to share mine too.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dreaming should be a more integral part of our relationships.  It creates space for us to share the passions on our individual hearts, while offering the other person insight on what we need so they can help support, encourage, and cheer us on.  And most importantly- it gets us all on the same page, and creates space to determine how current actions and decisions may be supporting that long-term vision and value.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As corny as it may sound, I encourage you to dream with your partner too- what do you want your lives to look like in a year, 5 years, 10 years?  How can he/she support you within your own dreams?  How does your current lifestyle support the pursuit of those dreams?  What are the foundational values of your relationship?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let someone in on the secrets you hold close to your heart.  Share that scary, vulnerable side to you-- and, more importantly, create space for another person to share their heart with you too.  Build a big, beautiful, and crazy life together.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag that person who makes you dream bigger, and let them know how grateful you are for them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo: @joelleelizabethphoto

🏋️‍♀️ MENTAL HEALTH WORKOUT ADVOCATE 🏋🏼‍♂️ @phoenixblossomranch  tells us about her experience of applying #yourmentalhealthworkout earlier this year. ⠀⠀ Carousel by @phoenixblossomranch . "Thank you @the.mind.gym for giving a challenge months ago to start a mental health workout. I use Instagram to motivate me to keep it up. I notice on days I start with my gratitude journal/video I tend to enter situations with a clearer lens,  and better attitude.  It has also encouraged me to reach our more and have a broader support system. It took 4 takes to until my dog wasn't there to bark through it. Apparently she's a fan too. ❤🐕” ⠀⠀ #mentalhealth #workout #dontskipbrainday #gratitude #peace #grateful #dogmom #infertility #cancer #braintumor #recover #eatingdisorder #overcome #change #transformation #selflove #youcandoit #nevergiveup #newday #followers #feedback #livedexperience #therapyiscool #psychology #lifestylechances #growthisgood #positiveaffirmation #attitudeoffgratitude #wholeheartedliving
When treating someone with depression,  the first step I take is to look for a bereavement.  If I find that grief is not the cause of the depression, the next step is to look for unconscious reasons.  Unconscious reasons are usually centered around a particular feeling the person is trying to avoid. An emotion the person is trying to deny, or bury due to the thinking that the emotion is wrong.  Always remember that all emotions are normal. The key is to figure out why that particular emotion is thought to be "wrong." • • • • • • #therapysession #virginiatherapy #virginiatherapist #overcomingobstacles #psychotherapist #mindsetcoach #mentalhealthsupport #mindsetcoach #therapyformen #menshealth #growthmindset #mindsetshift #strongfit #selfdevelopmenttools #emotionalmastery #selfmastery #therapyiscool #therapistsofinstagram #healthyboundaries #emotionalmastery #therapyiscool #therapistsofinstagram #pschologistsofinstagram #healthyboundaries #wecandohardthings #youcomefirst #counselingpsychology #therapyworks
Spent the morning facilitating an @embodylovemovement workshop. It’s at these workshops that I witness the fragile concept of self of our youth. The inner critic can start early and with a vengeance. . That inner critic often holds onto misinformed ideas and experiences we have, without being able to see the truth of it all. . . It was certainly far from true that the 7th grader sitting huddled under her sweatshirt next to me didn’t deserve to wear shorts or a swimsuit and enjoy her summer because of her body. But she thought so. This sweet girl had internalized messages from those around her, and it’s hurting her. . . Will you be mindful of what you say to yourself? Even if you can’t get on board with being kind to yourself - will you do it for those around you? For those yet to be born that need accepting, compassionate, and strong role models in their life? Healing generational wounds can seem insurmountable at times, but it can start with you. Today. Commit yourself to kindness - for you, and for those around you. . 💕 - all my love - Julianne
The other day I was listening to one of @ownitpodcast podcasts, and Amanda said something that really clicked and made me tear up a little. Well, actually a lot... She said: ••• Be the Hero of your own story, not the victim ••• . This was really touching because it's been so easy to fall into the trap of being the victim of every.single.one. of my stories. And I didn't even realized that I was doing it. . Immediately after I heard her advice on her podcast, I felt the need to change one specific story in my life that has been hurting for years since it happen. . I can't believe the immediate relief that it gave to my heart! I was finally the hero of one of my worst memories. {I wish I could tell more, but, this is a story I'm not ready to tell yet.} . It is CRAZY to realize that the way you tell your stories can affect so much the way that people perceive them... and not only other people, but how YOU perceive them yourself. . It is important to be honest with ourselves and see the situations the way they actually are. I mean, we are alive! We're here now. We've gone through it, but WE ARE STILL HERE, doing our best and trying our hardest to move forward. . . I think Amanda did an amazing job explaining all of this way better than I am, in her podcast. So she totally gets all the credit for this amazing advice. I'm just sharing my experience from what I learned from her. . You should totally listen to her podcasts... She is very real and transparent, and that is something hard to do nowadays. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #amandagoldoi #podcast #ownitbyamandagold #ownitpodcast #myemotionaljourney #selflove #lovelife #lifeisgood #yourenotalone #loveyourself #selfconfidence #motivational #begrateful #godlovesyou #mentalhealthawareness #copingskills #supportgroup #therapyiscool #mentalhealthmatters #mindfulness #therapy #selflove #mentalhealth #selfcompassion #emotions #meditation #anxietyhacks #lifestyle #ipreview
Any other @brenebrown fans out there? Jk, I know she has a ton of fans 😉 I love this quote. Often times we get hardened to the joy in our lives because feeling it and acknowledging it requires vulnerability which can be SCARY y’all. No way around it. If we don’t let ourselves be vulnerable to joy in an attempt to stave off vulnerability to sadness, anger, disappointment, worry, and all the other feelings we shy away from feeling, we risk missing out on the joy. We have to feel all our feelings without judgment. If we live in a mindset of “I can’t let myself feel this joy because I will devastated when it doesn’t last,” we create a joyless environment. We have to live in the mindset of abundant joy and create space for joy along with all the other emotions. #abundantjoy
Ideas of things to tell yourself when you're feeling discouraged or sad: . • You can do hard things. • You're strong. • You're brave. • It's okay to be emotional. • It's okay to be sensitive. • It is okay to cry and be sad. • Your feelings matter. • You are smart and you can make your own decisions. • No one is the boss of you • It is okay to smile even when you want to cry. • Believe in your true potential. • Have faith in yourself. • Be honest with yourself. What is truly bothering you? . .. . . 》》》Which one of the things on this list is the most meaningful to you?《《《 . . {I'll be talking a bit more about somethings on this list on the next following posts.} . . . . . . . . . . . . #behonestwithyourself #honestemotions #myemotionaljourney #selflove #lovelife #lifeisgood #yourenotalone #loveyourself #selfconfidence #motivational #begrateful #godlovesyou #mentalhealthawareness #copingskills #supportgroup #therapyiscool #mentalhealthmatters #mindfulness #therapy #selflove #mentalhealth #selfcompassion #emotions #meditation #anxietyhacks #lifestyle #ipreview
Instead of "I'm Failing As A Mom" try.... . -Everyday I'm learning more -I'm doing the best I can -I'm Exactly the mom my child needs -Today was hard but tomorrow is a new day -I'm allowed to learn from my mistakes -It's okay to have hard days -My child is safe, fed & loved -I show up for my child everyday -My child and I are new at this so it makes sense that it's hard sometimes  Words are powerful so be kind to yourself🌷

Adversity is a fact of life. Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back at least as strong as before.

(Tw) It’s so easy to go back to the ed. The thoughts, the feelings, the patterns. When I feel out of control food is the first thing I grasp for. To feel in control again. I don’t understand why I desperately need to be in control, and why the loss of it leaves me so panicked. Maybe I want a way to canalise my feelings. I need a goal, to distract myself from everything I’m feeling, everything that’s hurting. I need something to be real, to be seen. I also know this isn’t the way to go. I know I’m not making anything better by controlling my food, but I cannot resist it... I have a session with my therapist on Wednesday, and that usually helps so I guess I’ll just do my best not to fall too hard until then
Here’s a list of things that won’t happen if you join Teen Girls Therapy Group (#linkinbio):   ❌ You won’t be surrounded by “mean girls.”  ❌ There will be no popularity contests.  ❌ It’s not like you’ll magically start knowing how to tell others how you feel in a way that makes them listen.  But you WILL get to learn more about who you are and how to teach others how to take you seriously.  That means --  ❤️ No more eating lunch alone in the bathroom ❤️ Confidence to say what you mean and mean what you say ❤️ Less people treating you like a doormat  You might not get to be the most-liked, popular girl, but you will love who are and care less about what others think.

Self-compassion/Being kind to yourself. This is a topic that has come up in sessions recently.  Imagine that you had a donkey that you needed to carry 50 pounds of junk up a mountain everyday. You have two ways to get this donkey up the hill: hit him with a stick to keep him moving every time he stops or enticing him with a carrot 🥕. Both ways will get you, your donkey, and all your junk to the top of the mountain. However, by offering the donkey the juicy, delicious carrot 🥕, you are keeping him happy and looking forward to his next bite of carrot. If you keep hitting the donkey with a stick, not only will you have a beaten and bruised donkey, but you are going to have one miserable ass on your hands. Don’t be an ass to yourself. Practice self-kindness. It’s really easy to beat ourselves up, but think of how much happier we can be if we give ourselves 🥕 instead of beatings.

The desire to return to one’s old self enters my office often.  I hear people say how they wished they could go back to how life once was.  The person they were before the emotional or mental distress overwhelmed their system.  The person they were before the trauma impacted every facet of their life.  The person they were before the devastating loss.  Even though we may desire to turn back the hands of time, we will never be able to.  But there is always the opportunity to move forward as the new you.  The you that is healing. The you that is rebuilding. The you that is resilient. ↟↡ #therapyiscool A Mental Health Action Campaign  www.hashtagtherapyiscool.com ↟↡ #mentalhealth #health #wellness #mentalillness #depression #anxiety #trauma #addiction #suicideprevention #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthstigma #endthestigma #stigmafree #stopthestigma #therapy #counseling  #breakthestigma #healing #recovery #psychology #psychologist #therapist #mentalhealthmonth #mentalhealthactioncampaign @hashtagtherapyiscool
Started my day by working on my spiritual self, just worked on my physical self with a sweaty workout and recovery fuel 🤤, and tonight I get to work on my mental self at my therapy appointment. 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Rules and restrictions don’t lift me up and make me feel good, but working towards my overall health definitely improves my mood and gives me a bit more patience to be a mom... constant work in progress here 😉❤️ - -  #overallhealth #haes #mindfulmovement #therapyiscool #loveyourself #momofthreegirls #heavenhelpme
Do you find yourself angrier than usual? Perhaps you are lashing out more? Or having explosive outbursts with people at home or work? If you’ve answered yes to any of these, you maybe be in a mental and emotional state of Rage. The dictionary defines the word rage as violent, uncontrollable anger.” I tell clients all of that time that “anger” is a natural emotion. Everyone becomes angry about something at one point or another in life, but it’s more so how we respond to anger and what’s triggering that emotions. Anger in itself is a tense emotion- but when it turns in to rage, I believe it’s anger on steroids.  Sing filled with rage and hostility negatively impacts your psychological and physical well-being. It takes a toll on you overtime. But there are things that you can do to break those vicious cycles of rage and hostility. Here’s how: 1. Take a deep breath. Deep breathing is a great exercise when you’re feeling rage. 2. You must acknowledge what you are feeling. 3. Identify the trigger... what’s really setting you off? 4. Act of rage safely. Perhaps your need to scream, cry, take a boxing class, run!  5. Find solutions for triggering events. If you have problem-solving ways to deal with rage, you can better cope with your triggers.  6. Last, but not least. TRY THERAPY!!!!!!!! Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been proven to help individuals with chronic anger such as rage! CBT will help change your thought pattern and you’ll develop better methods to deal with rage! 🌟🌟🌟
“As you continue to breathe and notice the air moving in and out of your lungs you may think about the role that oxygen plays in nourishing your body and bathing your tissues with the energy you need to feel alive and engaged.” - Bessel van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score .

May we breathe in nourishment and exhale with the intention of release ✨ . . . #befriendthebody #thebodykeepsthescore #breatheinbreatheout #intentionalliving #parasympathetic .

Feelings come, feelings go. It’s ok to be sad, mad, happy, worried, tearful, joyful, disappointed, etc. These feelings mean you are a human who is experiencing life. Sometimes when you’re feeling down or worried, it can seem like you will feel that way forever. You won’t. If you feel stuck, reach out for help. There are people who want to help you find ways to get yourself unstuck. Feelings aren’t forever. #therapyiscool
You have to choose to love yourself, even when others refuse to. ⁣⁣ ⁣ Self love is choosing yourself and choosing yourself is self care. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Are you entertaining the wrong people because you struggle to love yourself? ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ It’s okay to take a break, a moment for yourself. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ It’s okay to be selfish, if it means rediscovering your own power and happiness. ⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ #empoweringyoutherapy #tempearizona #tempetherapist #phoenixtherapist #arizonatherapist #bosswomen #empoweredwomen #womenentrepreneurs #millave #asu #arizonastateuniversity #scottsdale #chandler #mesa #paradisevalleyaz #ahwatukee #counseling #psychology #socialwork #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealth #endthestigma #therapyiscool

💜 Day 17 💜  Sometimes all you need is a time out with a coffee and some chocolate 🍫😍 Monday’s can be one of those days where it’s easy to neglect your selfcare. 😟  Perhaps the work piled up over the weekend and you are trying to catch up, or maybe you are still mourning the weekend and forget to be present. ✨ 💜 Today I have been struggling to get back into the rhythm of things, probably not being very present and allowing myself to be distracted. 😑 👉🏼 Having been listening to @drsherijacobson’s Live she did over the weekend, she reminded me to check in with myself. What is going on. So, with some self-compassion I took a timeout with a coffee and some chocolate which gave me the little reboot I needed! 😸💜 #monday #mentalwellbeingchallenge #30daychallenge  How’s your Monday been? I want to hear all about it! ✨✨✨
Feeling safe and comfortable with your therapist is so important! If you don’t like or feel comfortable with your therapist, you won’t get the results you want. During my first session with clients, I stress the importance of fit and encourage them to reach out via text or email if they aren’t comfortable with me. I have a large network of people I can send them to if I’m not the right therapist for them. My go to saying is that I would not want them to give up on therapy because quality of fit is key!! Once you find the right therapist who you meets your needs (and remember, your needs are different than your friends or siblings), the magic of therapy can begin. Don’t give up if you have had an experience with a crappy therapist!
