Earlier this week I came across a beautiful poem by Rumi titled The Guest House. For me, this poem was a reminder of the importance of gratitude, right focus and making a determination to shift to a more positive mindset. Remember, there is so much to be grateful for – if we only mindfully shift our perspectives!
We MUST all do a better job at shifting to a positive mindset and taking a few minutes out of every day to reflect on all our victories — large and small!
We have created a convenient "Inner Strength" Worksheet to help you with this. If you are stuck on the “whys” and “what ifs”, this worksheet is tailored to help you re-discover your inner strength and focus on your “winning” moments instead! Enjoy!
The end of the year is approaching, and our minds are preoccupied with shopping, holiday preparations, year-end performance reviews and — most of all — our own personal life evaluations. In this post, we share a brief “Look in the Mirror” Exercise with you. It is designed to help you turn your attention from what could have been to what is!
There are 56 days left in the year. Let’s approach them with a feeling of achievement, so that we may end 2017 on a triumphant note!
Your mental wellness is important! If you have gone as far as to research, select, and call an ideal therapist, do not be so quick to hang up — or give up — on the first call if they do not take your insurance. There are options available.
Discover the ways in which you may use your current insurance plan to offset therapy costs with an out-of-network provider.
As a therapist of color, I am heartbreakingly aware of the power of silence and shame in our communities. Silence and shame are our first barriers to healing. Lacking access to culturally competent therapists, social workers, and counselors of color is the other. However, therapists dedicated to communities of color are available to assist you on the path to healing.
WE are here to serve YOU.
