(Swipe left for Turkish. Tukcesi icin sola kaydirin) @lizlistens was asking kindness quotes on her Instagram stories and this immediately came to my mind. This quote belongs to The Gottman Institute. Kindness in marriages and relationships happen every day, not once in a while. We help each other every day. Create quality time, give our undivided attention, care and love for each other every day. We choose to be kind to one another every single day, and this what matters the most! #thegottmaninstitute @gottmaninstitute #kindness #bekind #relationshiptips #couplestherapy #couplestherapist #brynmawrtherapist #brynmawr #relationships #marriage #marriageadvice #whatyoudomatters #love #ask #iliskiler #iliskikocu #evlilikveaileterapisti #marriageandfamilytherapist #mft #gottman

What could be better than toys??! EXPERIENCES. GIFTS & KIDS! 'Tis the season! Wish lists abound, and toys are likely a major part of it..⁠ ⁠ Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE a good toy - I am a child therapist, after all, and we use toys every single day in sessions!⁠ ⁠ And as parents, I think we all know that warm feeling that arises the moment your child gets the toy they were REALLY wanting. That's a beautiful moment! And for this holiday season, I've got an idea for you to mix in, too..⁠ ⁠ How can you to add in gifts that lead to EXPERIENCES together, as a family?? Here are some ideas that come to mind for me:⁠ ⁠ + Art kits that make creating easy⁠ + Books to read together⁠ + Tickets to an event⁠ + Framed photo of you with just that kid⁠ + Dress up clothes⁠ + Classes, like art, sports, music, or dance.. something they've been interested in⁠ + Sleeping bag for home forts or camping⁠ + New games or puzzles⁠ ⁠ Have some other creative ideas about what could be on this list? Share below! Someone in our community might feel inspired by it..!⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #childtherapy #childtherapist #familytherapist #marriageandfamilytherapist #familytherapy #marriageandfamilytherapy #marriagefamilytherapist #lmft #therapyiscool #therapistsofinstagram #mentalhealthtips #selfcompassion #copingskills #emotionalregulation #losangelestherapy #losangelestherapist #playtherapy #cognitivebehaviortherapy#mindfulnessforchildren #mindfulnesscoaching #mindfulnessliving #parenting #parentingtips #mindfulparenting #mindfulmom #parenting #parentingtips #mindfulparenting #mindfulmom⁠ ⁠ ⁠

I am very fortunate to have been working with a therapist I love for the past three plus years. As a therapist myself, I know and appreciate the gift of having my own space and time for just ME. Today, as my session came to a close, my therapist asked for a recap. The biggest takeaway? Anxiety does not mean love. Somewhere along the way I became attached to the story and belief that being loving meant being frantic, and worried, obsessive even. If I didn’t worry about something, it means I didn’t care. I somehow associated calm with dismissive. HUGE false belief. Anxiety just means there’s more inner work to do. It does not quantify the amount of love there is, no emotion possibly can. I can be as cool as a cucumber when my daughter is crying hysterically and still have a tremendous amount of love. What false belief have you learned to associate love with? #motherhood #parenting #attachmentparenting #attachment #therapy #innerwork #marriageandfamilytherapist #newmama #love #anxiety

Hi, I’m Jen, a Christian, feminist, marriage and family therapist, daughter, sister, wife and new mama. . . So far the journey of motherhood has been the most beautiful yet, filled with so much love, wonder, awe, and of course, struggles, fears and anxiety. I hope to share with you all of the insights I have gained and will gain, as I continue on this journey, both from the lens of a therapist and the lens of a new mama, fallible, vulnerable, packed with my own triggers and wounds and the healing and wisdom and tools I have worked hard to gain thus far. . . I’m so excited to begin! #parenting #motherhood #attachmentparenting #love #vulnerability #mentalhealth #counseling #marriageandfamilytherapist #newmama

When things aren’t going great we almost start to believe that good things will never come to us, or that we maybe don’t deserve good things. (I said almost, but I’d say usually instead). I know of times that I’ve said, “but for bad luck I’d have no luck at all”, or “what could I have possibly done in a firmer life to deserve this?” Even when so many things are going right that the bad things seem to cover everything like a dark cloud. So I challenge you today to count your blessings! Pay attention to the good things. Manifest the good things you desire and hold on to hope that they will come. - - Follow Letting Go Counseling for daily positive affirmations.

Repost @deenamargolin “Your frustration is valid! But.. it doesn't exactly support learning and growth.⁠ ⁠ Let's break it down together and explore how a RESPONSE may be more beneficial than a REACTION in this case:⁠ ⁠ Reaction: "Did you seriously spill your juice - again?!"⁠ ⁠ While you may FEEL disappointed and frustrated, bringing your emotional intensity and judgment into the interaction may evoke feelings of shame, sadness, and guilt in the child. This blocks learning and usually leaves everyone feeling pretty bad about the whole experience.⁠ ⁠ Response: "Oops! Let's clean this up together. Next time, try not to tip so far!"⁠ ⁠ This response shows forgiveness for mistakes, highlights team work and unconditional support, and identifies the steps for learning: Attention to hand movement next time. ⁠ ⁠ Remember - children don't have the motor control skills that adults do! Their little brains haven't developed the hand-eye coordination and body balance that we have!⁠ ⁠ And you can't go back in time to have a re-do in this case, so taking a more constructive path will likely leave everyone feeling better, more connected, and ready to move on from the experience.⁠ ⁠ Every difficult moment is an opportunity to learn as a parent. The more you practice CATCHING the urges to REACT, the more power you have to SHIFT into a RESPONSE.⁠ ⁠ Sending you lots of compassion along the way. You've got this! “xx⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #childtherapy #childtherapist #familytherapist #marriageandfamilytherapist #marriageandfamilytherapy#familytherapy #familytherapist #lmft #mindfulnessforchildren #mindfulness #parenting #mindfulmom #parentingtips #mindfulparenting #parenting #childpsychology #positiveparenting #parenthood #healthyrelationships #consent #positivethinking #Losangelestherapist #losangelestherapy #cognitivebehaviortherapy #therapistofinstagram #mentalhealthtips #therapyiscool #copingskills

No matter how often you get your hair and nails done, no matter how flashy the cars you drive in, no matter how fancy the clothes you wear, none of these indicate self-love, if you continue to allow disrespect and harm from others.🌱 • • • • • • • • #Boundaries #relationshiptips #relationshipadvice #spiritualawakening #relationshiptips #inspiredaily #selfcarequotes #relationshipquotes #empoweringquotes #motivatedaily #relationshipgoals #empowermentquotes #microinfluencer #influencer #blogger #influencers #couplesquotes #awakenedsoul #love #marriagequotes #marriageandfamilytherapist #MercedesCoffman #mindbodysoul #relationshiptherapist #contentcreator #instaquotes #lifestyleblogger #wellnesswarrior #lifestyle #instaquotes #bloggers #instadaily

Month in Review: November was an amazing month! I taught my first 🧘🏾‍♀️ class @indigogypsyyoga!!! The best place to do yoga, I am a student and a teacher! I did a lot self-exploration! I had several hard conversations with myself and my circle! I appreciate all of you! My sister had a beautiful baby girl!! I severed some ties and strengthened some relationships! Healing requires honesty, strength, courage, and vision! I faced a lot of hard truths and owned my stuff, it was so liberating!! I am grateful for November, a month of gratitude, awareness and purpose! #balanceyourchakras #speakyourtruth #ownyourstuff #mindfulnesstings #mindfulnessmatters #selfawarenessjourney #staywoke #marriageandfamilytherapist #bosschickstatus💋💋 #sharpeningmysaw #childtherapist #yogateacher #blackgirlsdoyoga #chocolateyogini #manageyourenergy #manageyouremotionsbeforetheymanageyou #positivevibes

I am extremely close to parts of my family and have no relationship, at all, with other members of my family. In fact it feels like there’s bad blood, but I don’t have a part in the original reason why. I now see that none of these decision were mine and at 47, this awareness is just becoming crystal clear. I don’t blame anyone and I really mean that. It’s their cross to bear. The fact is that because of decisions made by my father and his sisters, I have no relationship with my cousins (their kids.) Isn’t that just silly! I am going to change that! As my parents age- as I age, I begin to see more and more that family means the ones who’s show up for each other, the ones who ask if everything is ok and stay with me when it’s not. Family is the one who I think of to call when I want to laugh or cry or just hear their voice. Family is the one I know I can call, even when we haven’t talked in a year. We pick up RIGHT where we left off and move forward. We hold the space for the next time we’ll see each other. We always want to be together and cherish the time we get, even if just a few hours a year. Family consists of the people who support and love you, and the people you can confide in and trust. I am literally writing this through tears for the years I have lost with some of my family and for the closeness I have with other members. If you too are estranged from family members (a lot of us are) keep an eye out on Dec 24 for my next @goop article. It’s coming out in their newsletter, so sign up if you don’t already get it and want to see it. This is a very difficult subject for most of us to discuss, but I want to change that. I want to help normalize something so much if us are suffering with and shine light on it so that we can all heal together. I take a big chance in my family when I expose myself this way. I am fully ok with sharing my life to help others, but my family is more private than me. You see the dilemma. I can’t have secrets and lies I can’t allow shadows to stay shadowy if I know better, so I say my truth- no matter what. This is @lah_life and we always pick up where we left off. Thanks cuz for just being you.
