Such prettiness. It is refreshing to block out the world and focus on art. I added crystals for added zen. #epoxyresin #siliconemolds #resincrafts #pigments #crystals #crystalhealing #artistsoninstagram #therapy

🛋It is okay to be afraid and to do it anyway. Your emotions are not the boss of you. Perhaps they are just giving you the energy you need to try. #HigherSightsCounseling ☀️ ☀️ ☀️ #therapy #counseling #mentalhealth #wellness #healthy #lifestyle #selfie #happy #love #relationship #wedding #quote #therapyquote #meme #Denver #Colorado #therapist #psychology #socialworker #inspiration #pandemic #covid #corona #success #mindfulness #healthylifestyle #recovery #instagood #health

Today was something different for this little guy, but really different for me. With my oldest son behavior was not much out of the norm of your typical toddler tantrums & attitude. He understood what he could do and how to act. Well, Davey is completely opposite ALL that! . I sat and talked to the therapist about how I have to change my behavior for Davey to understand to change his. It was hard to tell someone that I struggle to deal with his fits. I struggle with his out burst. I struggle with the fact he doesn’t understand me fully when I tell him something. I did, however, learn I am doing the things I need to. . I walked into this therapy for Davey, but realized I was the one who needed it a little bit more. I am growing with him and we will do better together! . #itsalovetteworld #dbrooksl #therapy #growingtogether #autism #myboy #boymom #stayathomemom #lovemyboys

Haven't made a post about pride month (not that it's necessary) and this isn't going to just be a pride post, but happy pride month. I know it's not happy times with everything going on for so many, but I'm proud of what we are doing, keep going, because it doesn't matter that some people think it won't help to speak on, protesting outside, or online, IT DOES MATTER. IT WILL HELP. If you're Black and get attacked and we know people are murdered for their skin color, and you want rights and justice that you deserve, why would you hate and attack others in your community for being apart of the LGBTQIA+ community? They deserve rights too, because ALL Black lives matter, not just some. #lovewins #loveislove #lesbian #gay #mtf #ftm #transgender #Nonbinary #depression #anxiety #mentalhealth #stopthestigma #alwayskeepfighting #youareenough #loveyourself #loveyourselffirst #demisexual #agender  #genderfluid  #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #avoidantpersonalitydisorder  #bpd #therapy #bipolar #Nonbinary #blacklivesmatter

I like to share my story because I feel so much better and I really hope my story can help other people because i know I’ve made lots of mistakes and I think sharing my story helps me as well... 10yrs ago I decided to go to Panama with a friend to change my eye color from brown to blue and that surgery would change my life forever... at first it was beautiful and everything was amazing till after few years I started going blind and then I had to undergo 10 surgeries in 10yrs to help me see a little and now I have to put lots of eye drops in my eyes and wear glasses to see a little and I don’t see very much and the headaches I experienced is horrible. This is to show that vanity is not a good thing.. I’m not here for you to feel sorry for me but I’m here to let you know that you should be thankful and happy with being natural instead of trying to change yourself... I’m paying for my mistakes and that’s why at 49yrs old with three kids I just try to stay healthy and happy and I don’t do anything to jeopardize my health because after getting my eye color change I went through so much pain and suffering and it was very expensive to get two cornea transplants and now I still don’t see very well.. it’s a lesson learned for me and I wish I wasn’t so vain back then but when I was modeling I always wanted to stand out and look different and I thought a boob job and eye color change would do it and it cause me so much health problems but luckily I am ok despite that I don’t see and have double vision so I don’t drive much. The surgeon in Panama put a hole in the back of my eyes and it wasn’t FDA approved I am so thankful to have the best doctor in Irvine CA and Las Vegas otherwise I’ll be blind completely thank God. I hope my story would inspired you to love yourself and don’t change what God has created because he knows best. Please comment below if you have any questions and I feel so much happier that I can see a little but I have my good bad and ugly days 💪🏽🙏🏼👍🏽💖 #eyecolorchange #loveyourself #godislove #dontchangeforanyone #behappy #blogger #story #mylife #bless #miracle #momlife #dontjudgeme #instagoodmyphoto #model #vegas #african #queen #therapy

Fire up your gluteus medius with these 4 exercises in part 1 of our glute series! 👑 Glutes are king! They are important when trying to solidify your lower extremities. However, they are separated into 3 different muscle groups, gluteus maximus, medius and minimus. Often overlooked are the gluteus medius muscles which helps stabilize your lower kinetic chain during dynamic movements. The function of these muscles are important for people of all ages and help support the hip complex during sporting activities which require running, jumping and single leg support time. In regards to the older population, the gluteus medius muscles are important while traversing uneven ground to keep us safe from falling over! Part 1 of this series focuses on simple activation and isolation of the gluteus medius muscles. Give these exercises a try for 20 reps each! #legday #physio #physiotherapy #physicaltherapy #activity #physicalfitness #legroutine #glutes #glutguy #ankles #correctiveexercise #gymrat #functionalfitness #physicallyactive #stabilitytrainingysicallyfit #healthandwellness #anklerehab #ankleexercises #functionaltrainer #sportsmedicine #physicaltherapist #therapy #rehabilitation #rehabaddict #legrehab #workoutadvice #doctorofphysicaltherapy #trainsmart #traindaily #trainingroutine

I took some time from my platform to mourn the loss of my kittie companion of 8 years (18 years old!) simulaniously mourning the nations loss of justice and inequality. I felt a small incling of guilt for taking to heart an animals death. Given the magnitude of death of countless blacks (and others) unarmed in the USA. Temporarily, choosing to only focus on the injustice of the world. I was doing my due diligence donating, joining book clubs and collaborating black minds. But, I remembered I must take care of my soul before setting up my sword to fight for the world. I am still mourning a soul that is no longer with me. I have so many ideas I want to accomplish to benefit my community specifically those with disabilities, chronic pain or in low health status. I pray for direction, but for this moment in time, I will also remember my companion and how much comfort she gave me in the hard times. Thank my good Lord for the time I had with her. My advice to all: Take time away from it all to worship, meditate, journal, express, cousel. Then, come back to battle. All of these things we need to care for our mind and body. But, don't forget what we a fighting for. One love, one heart 💚💛🖤 #petloss #mourning #deathofapet #selfcare #expression #painofloss #Godisable #blackvoicesmatter #blackwoman #kittymom #kitties #chronicpain #fibromyalgia #mentalillness #therapy #rememberance #mypetisinheaven

🧠 The intersectionality of race and class or when there’s nothing left to lose. • • • Black unemployment rate has been at least twice as high compared to white unemployment. Essential workers are disproportionately Black. Most folks and people of color, don’t have access to health care, retirement accounts, or sick days. Police violence coupled with COVID-19 has unveiled the racial and economic inequality in the US. As protests continue, I have sat with people who expressed deep discomfort with the fact that stores are being vandalized, often forgetting that this is a response to something. As a therapist, I am always eager to understand, and less to judge, while simultaneously, as a pacifist, I don’t condone violence of any kind. Yet, in the same breath I am thinking of how it feels when you unjustly get fired from a job, and feel so powerless that taking the stapler with you, or the posted notes feels like, avengement. Now imagine years of systemic injustice. • • • #blacklivesmatter #blacklivesmatter✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 #blacklove #liberation #empowerment #socialjustice #socialjusticeactivist #advocate #activist #blacklivesmatter✊🏾 #society #racism #therapy #therapist #psychology #psychologist #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthcounseling #mentalhealthcounselor

This time of the year we are usually at our annual residential, a time that tends to stay with our students for years to come. At residential weekends we make time for learning together, experiential revision, movement practices, meditations on the beach, long walks, bodywork of course, vegetarian cooking, quality time for connection and of course: assessments and graduation. This year is different of course but it's lovely to share the memories and lovely to look forward to the next one, because it sure will take place eventually. We can't wait ...

Many are wondering, "When will things get back to normal? Will things ever get back to normal? What is normal anymore?" These are just a few questions that sat with therapist Alex Parlette, and he discusses them in his latest blog, "Creating a New Normal." Surely, nothing is really "normal" anymore, which is why we can benefit from the tips given in this blog, such as accepting our new reality, planning our our days, and starting new things to get us back out there and ready to face our new world.

“Where there is stagnation, there is pain. Remove the stagnation, and you remove the pain.” 🌱 Not only pain, but the majority of illness and disease come from stagnation, congestion, and blockage of vital energy (Qi), vital nutrients, blood, and lymph. The suction applied by cupping draws out and breaks up that congestion or blockage, restoring free flow to the vital energies and organs of our bodies. Pain is the essence of disease! Suffering or “dis-ease” is experienced when there is difficulty or obstruction to the natural flow and functioning of the body. Invest in your health, invest your life!

When we are at our weakest, most vulnerable, stressed or have experienced trauma, it can be really hard to find the time or even to find the best ways to look after ourselves. Self-care means taking care of ourselves, despite what others are doing or not doing for us. The aim main is to deliberately improve mental, emotional, physical and/or spiritual health. If we do not take time to care for ourselves, the consequences could be increased anxiety, depression, feelings of being overwhelmed or breakdown. Any activity giving time, attention, patience, energy or kindness to ourselves can be seen as self-care. Self-care is doing things that make us feel better, refreshing or mental health (relaxing, releasing tension or having a laugh) or things that maintain our physical health (hygiene, general and personal; nutrition, type and quality of food eaten and taking the right medication or vitamins). Also things that help maintain our overall lives are self-Care (setting routines, planning or paying attention to environmental factors living conditions and social habits; socioeconomic factors (income level, cultural beliefs, praying or meditating). We should all try and do one conscious self-care activity a day, what things make you feel better? what have you done to look after yourself today? Self-care = Survival and it a major contributor to living your best life. #selfcare #selflove #self #bestlifeever #mentalhealthawareness #therapy #netflixandchill #prayer #meditation #love #life #hygiene #hairgoals #keto #fitness #thegoodlife #livingmybestlife #emotions #emotionalhealth #baatn #londoncounsellors #bacp #counsellingdirectory #counseling #counselingpsychology #couplegoals #bpd #anxiety #depression #psychology

It’s natural for us humans to be attached to familiar things: it’s how we get through being a baby/toddler! FAMILIARIZATION!!!😱 • • But when you grow older, you are becoming more aware to certain things and understanding yourself within what you want and why you want it. Don’t stay with someone or keep doing something if it doesn’t bring you pure happiness. It’s scary to start fresh, but staying with something or someone that is holding you back is even more scary.

Saying goodbye to Jason Whitlock and his stupid “fedora”. A little secret about white people in regards to "sell out" black people…THEY HAVE NO RESPECT FOR YOU! When you out there doing all that buck dancing and cooning and white people still tell you “bye”. White people are not going to trust you because they already see that you were selling out your own, so why would they trust you…also you're not bringing nothing to the table for them.

Day 10 on Citalopram. So far so good. Setraline gave me frequent lock jaw and nausea so i was a bit nervous starting another SSRI but touch wood, Citalopram seems to be kinder on my body and hopefully better for my mind. 4 days away from my GP check up - im feeling positive and will carry on with my prescription. 🖤 I hope you are all well.

Yes, ALL lives matter but too often in history some people forget that Black Lives Matter and are part of that ALL. I’m proud to live in Washington, DC and of our Mayor @murielbowser for renaming the street in front of the White House “Black Lives Matter Plaza.” This will serve as a great reminder for those people that may at times forget black people are also worth being treated the same as anyone else of any pigment. I see Black Lives Matter Plaza as our Statue of Liberty. Just like that iconic monument was a beacon for immigrants, this street will be for us & our allies. ________________________________________ #positivequotes #positivevibes #personal #joy #selflove #review #grow #washingtondc #growth #perspective #love #Loyalty #socialdistancing #honesty #empathy #kindness #liveyourbestlife #yourebeautiful #friendship #choosehappiness #begood #mentalhealth #racism #opportunity #thinking #politics #therapy #manifest #race #blacklivesmatter ________________________________________

[Español ➡️ y ⬇️] When we are faced with the oppression and injustice that exists around us, it's important that we do something to help change the world. . Even though we might feel powerless and like we're not doing enough, we need to engage in behaviours that align with that goal.

My sister recently predicted that gym memberships will drop and instead therapy appointments will skyrocket in the coming months. I jokingly responded, “Good luck: therapists are now all overwhelmed with the exact same symptoms they see clients for!”⁣ ⁣ The truth is, this is a time of unprecedented alliance between therapists and clients. We are all, on various levels, experiencing circumstances beyond our control. Our physical bodies, minds, and spirits are on activated, chronic alert often.⁣ ⁣ This can be exhausting and compound depression and anxiety. Emotional regulation gets difficult. I call this “living in your Limbic System”: the area of your brain that automatically responds to fear and threat. It’s the place we react from before we can think or process events rationally. When we are living in our limbic system, we become highly reactive. It is the “knee-jerk mode” we inhabit when we do or say things we come to regret later. ⁣ ⁣ So what can you do to calm the storm 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯, even if it continues to rage outside? How do we move beyond our “limbic” space? ⁣ ⁣ I’m going to offer a TIP from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), a highly efficacious framework for the regulation of our most heightened emotions. These practices can 𝘲𝘶𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘭𝘺 shift your emotional activation system so you can move forward with behaviors that better align with your true values. The goal isn’t to avoid activation; it’s to know how to handle it in the best way possible when it naturally arises. ⁣ 𝗧 - Tip the Temperature. Cooler temperatures decrease the heart rate. Warm temperatures increase it. If you’re “fired up” with anxiety, anger, or fear: splash cold water on your face, take a cool shower, or rub an ice cube on your face. Conversely, if you’re feeling very sad or depressed: take a warm bath, drink warm tea, or go out into the warm sunshine.⁣ ⁣ 𝗜 - Intense Exercise. A short bout of high intensity exercise releases the built-up energy of overwhelming emotions.⁣ ⁣ 𝗣 - Paced breathing. Pay very close attention to your breath the moment you feel activated. Pace your breaths (Ex: inhale 4 seconds and slowly exhale 6 seconds) Do for 1-2 min.

There is a lot to say regarding the current climate of the country. I have read & seen beautiful words + images, and I have read & seen ones that have broken my heart. I’m sure I am not alone in that. This can all feel heavy and overwhelming and maddening; and it can also feel hopeful and inspiring and enlightening. • I recently read this quote: “A man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an opinion,” and it really struck me. As a trauma informed therapist, one of the most frustrating things to me is when someone’s experience is invalidated or dismissed. As a Christian, I do believe in an ultimate Truth - I am fortunate to have this as my guide + my foundation; but as a person on this side of heaven I also know that people’s experiences in this broken world inform their beliefs, and those experiences need to be heard. As the image says, “hurt must be heard before it can be healed.” That is essentially the foundation of trauma informed therapy, and beyond that, it should be the foundation of listening & caring in all capacities. One cannot move on to reflecting, challenging or getting uncomfortable, learning or relearning, and ultimate healing if one is never heard - truly heard; or if one is not willing to hear - truly hear. . . . #Repost @dranitaphillips ・・・ Wise words from my husband, @pastormichaelphillips - It’s a simple truth. The truth is rarely complicated. Sometimes we make things complicated when really, it’s not complicated. It’s just hard . ____ We can do hard things (Phil. 4:13 ) . #BodyLanguage #TheBodyProject #Restoration #TraumaInformed Graphics repost: @kayceeinhawaii
