Welcome to your life.
Yeah, that’s right. Life here.
What’s that? You don’t feel like playing today? Just gonna put the blanket over your head and hope that nobody calls you for the next 4 hours, er, days.
If you’re like most people, at some point in your life, you’ve felt unfulfilled. Sad. Angry. Scared. Bitter. Stressed. Burnt out. Sound like you? Well, I’m not going to make it all go away. My spidey skills aren’t that good. So you’re wondering. What can she do for ME?
Good question. My desire is to educate and inform you about mental health. Scary right? Small words that speak volumes. I want to demystify some of what makes us tick, share common stories from the ‘couch’ and help you see what is cause for concern and what constitues good ol’ fashioned human nature. By the way, most psychotherapists and healers do not have you lay down on a couch. We prefer eye contact.
So I invite you to sit back, relax (not too much) and engage in this thing called Life. It’s pretty darn cool.
