I decided to start this blog as a way of having a broader impact on the world at large and as a way of having more independence in my life. If you are suffering in your relationships; if you are feeling overworked and overwhelmed with everyday life; if you feel disappointed in yourself as a person, spouse, parent, or friend, this blog is for you.
This is a place where you can learn how to know yourself, how to care for yourself, how to love yourself, and how that knowledge, care, and love can grow your relationships so immensely, you’ll want to share it with everyone.
So, who am I? I’m a marriage and family therapist in the state of Washington where I work with adult individuals and couples. My work revolves mostly around managing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and relationship repair. I also teach parenting skills and general life-management-type skills. In addition to my therapeutic work, I am a clinical supervisor and consultant for other pre-licensed and licensed therapists, providing support through their licensure process and with difficult clinical situations. When I am not working, I am caring for my son and trying to stay sane by running, reading, or doing yoga. Although, if I’m being honest, I don’t get to do any of that nearly as often as I would like or as often as I should. We caregivers tend to neglect ourselves, am I right?
