I think Friends is a pretty terrible TV show (don't @ me), but I had to have this shirt! My collection of quirky anti-diet, eating disorder, and/or therapy-oriented t-shirt collection is growing 😂👕🌱
Why is Friends hot fiery dumpster trash?
Welp, think Courtney Cox in a fat suit (when the hell will we learn that putting a thin person in a fat suit isn't funny??? Looking at you @insatiable and @gwynethpaltrow).
The cringe-worthy homophobia and transphobia (eg, Chandler's jokes about his transgender parent and the conflation of trans folx and drag queens, the treatment of Carol and Susan's relationship and lesbianism in general).
The toxic masculinity (good God, Ross, let Ben play with a fucking Barbie).
The white-washing/overall lack of diversity.
I became a therapist because of a breakup. I was in my 20s and having a tough time dealing with being “dumped” (side note-what a shitty word.) I wasn’t eating or sleeping. Instead, I was obsessing over my actions and placing all the blame on myself.
What had I done wrong? Was I not enough? What should I have done differently? Was I not worthy of love?
Over and over again, these thoughts kept running through my mind. Breaking me down and questioning who I was. My friends kept telling me to get over it, to move on, that he wasn’t even worth my tears. Deep down I knew all that, but it didn’t change how I felt.
Nothing was helping...so I picked myself up and headed over to the counseling services on campus (btw- so thankful to have had parents who normalized therapy), beginning one of the most growth filled moments in my life. My therapist helped me find the answers I was seeking (plot twist-I had them all along, I just needed someone to shine some light on the things I wasn’t seeing). 🧘♀️
When I was done, something in me shifted. I didn’t just get over the breakup, I changed, and I knew that I wanted to share with others what I had been given: help, insight, awareness, hope, safety, and unconditional positive regard.
So, here I am, 13 years later! I have never been prouder of the work I do. What I was going through wasn’t diagnosable, but I still needed help. Seeking therapy is never a sign if weaknesses, it’s a sign of strength and understanding that you don’t have to struggle alone. There is no shame in vulnerability, just the possibility for growth and greatness.
Therapy isn’t about pretending to care for clients, or “having to” listen to clients’ struggles. Therapy is a connection between two humans, filled with genuine positive regard, empathy, and love. .
In therapy we help you to help yourself, with the eventual goal of empowering you to embody what you need. To hold yourself in the same regard we hold you. To love yourself with the same love we love you with. To have empathy in the same way we sit with you, even in the most difficult moments when it’s hard to love yourself. THAT is the goal of therapy 💗

Is one side better than the other? Asymmetries are common, but if they cause pain or restrict you it might be time to have a closer look 👀

1. Know thyself. Lol. No, really. Explore your own body in order to find out what feels good. Masturbate.
2. Be open to receiving pleasure. Many people are very closed off to receiving. Especially women.
3. Prioritize pleasure. Pleasure comes in all forms. Use your senses.
4. Tell your partner what you like. If you're worried about hurting their feelings, here are some ways to give directions.
Say this: 👌🏾I like when you_______.
👌🏾It feels really good in this position.
👌🏾More pressure right here (guide their hands, face, genitals, etc).
👌🏾Moan, talk, and give them feedback when you like something. Respond to the feedback you hear.
You are responsible for your own orgasm! However, a partner who wants to please you will make sure they assist.
Ask questions before sex like:
👌🏾How do you like to receive oral sex?
👌🏾How do you like to orgasm?
👌🏾What turns you on?
Etc. -Also, good sex does not have to end in orgasm. -Sex varies from person to person.
-Everyone is different. -Embrace differences.
Lastly, a person who's just having sex for sex, might be less inclined to care about your pleasure. So just get you!

So, I was sitting here getting ready for my evening sessions and was about to change my top to look more professional (side note: with online therapy sessions I usually have on pajama bottoms or sweats) then I stopped and thought who cares?
Why would I go out of my way to be someone I’m not? Why am I not embracing my authentic self? I’m constantly telling those I work with to be true to themselves while I’m sitting here playing a role.
Not anymore, I’m coming as I am and with no regrets. Beside who wants to work with someone all stuffy anyways. The way I’m dressed doesn’t discredit my license and the years of experience that I have!
So I’m reminding all of y’all to just be you!
I don’t know of anything more important to do for our children than continue to grow in our ability to self-soothe. We never fully arrive at this ability, but the more we self-soothe the more we are able to stay present in hard situations. We are able to sit with our kids when they cry, when they are afraid...and just as important...when they are angry with us. Our ability to sit with them provides the template for them to be able to sit with themselves in the midst of the scary moments they will face in life. •
We start by reminding ourselves that we are ok. Whatever emotion our child expresses...we can be ok. Most of it is not about us. And if it is? We teach powerful lessons by owning our stuff. By apologizing. By being able to model acknowledging we messed up. That doesn’t make us less of a parent or leader. It doesn’t diminish our authority. It validates it. •
This idea also doesn’t mean a “free for all” state of no boundaries. The irony is that the better we are at self soothing and staying present, the better we are at setting boundaries. “I hear you. You are upset. I want to talk to you AND I’m going to wait to talk to you when you aren’t screaming.” #parenting#selfsoothing#selfsoothe#staypresent#stayclose#boundaries#confidentparenting#secureparenting#attachment#attachmentstyles#mft#therapy#therapist#therapists
