The willingness to be vulnerable is SO important. It's where both the pain exists and where the magic happens. We don't get to safeguard ourselves from emotional pain, fear or anxiety. When we try we limit the possibility of also experiencing joy, the unexpected and the gifts of the unknown. Dare to be vulnerable. #vulnerability #vulnerable #enterthefear #LIC #longislandcity #astoriastherapist #astoria #courtsquare

Therapy time! No I didn't move my office I'm in route to my own session. Since graduate school I have committed to my own personal work on myself. I can honestly say I carry no shame in this I feel like it's a part of my routine and just like working out a way to stay healthy.
I believe in the value of connecting with someone who can challenge you and help you grow. It took awhile to find someone who can help me on that journey that never really ends. I know this helps me to be a more conscious person and a better therapist.
Don't let stigma ever get in the way of what makes sense for you! ✌🏻#practicewhatyoupreach #therapy #clearingmyhead #personalgrowth #effstigma #dowhatmakesyouhappy #astoria #astoriastherapist #LIC #courtsquare

Truth 🙌🏻 It's not the company, your boss or anyone else's responsibility to avoid /heal from burnout except your own. Truth be told most places don't care. In a city like NY it's easy to keep going until you pass out. #selflove #selfcare #astoria #astoriastherapist #LIC #courtsquare #healthiswealth #burnout

I really believe in smudging and do it daily in my office and as often as I need at home. Each patient deserves a clear room with positive energy for their session. It's not mentioned here but there also smudging spray too that smells lovely and it quick and easy in case you can't burn anything. I wish I knew about the spray when I was working corporate. Regardless of your environment you have options to clear space. Try it out if you haven't already ✌🏻#smudging #smudgespray #clearingmyspace #clearingmyhead #healthiswealth #astoriastherapist #astoria #LIC #courtsquare

A strong body and a strong mind are so closely connected. Since my injury 9 months ago hitting the gym was difficult but I managed. 6 months ago I had to stop completely. Little did I know this journey would take the better part of a year to recover. I've gone from injections, PT, surgery, crutches you name it all learning to walk again so I can eventually run again. This came with mental challenges too. I couldn't run out my stress and had to find new ways of coping. The universe didn't seem to care that I had enough on my plate with being my first year as a full on entrepreneur. Sometimes that's how life's challenges present themselves, all at once. Today I walked into the gym the same way I did 6months ago and reclaimed a lost part of myself I have been missing. As you strengthen your body you will strengthen your mind and vice versa. If the universe fills your plate to the max be kind to yourself but don't give up. It gets easier and you get stronger 💪🏻 #healthiswealth #astoria #LIC #courtsquare #astoriastherapist #recoveryjourney #mindbody #mindbodywellness

You guys, my experience with Dan Siegel at OMEGA was AMAZING! Im still coming down from an inspired learning high. I'm posting this because his wheel of awareness meditation is a great tool and resource (it's also free). I will post the YouTube link in my bio and please check it out. I could totally nerd out and explain the science etc. but pretty much he has found a way to help people get comfortable going into the unknown of experience and has proven it strengthens your brain. Long gone are the days that we believe that we are a product of our genes and we have no control at all. If you are interested in epigenetics check out his work or even Bruce Lipton. Both have been featured on tons of free podcasts and I encourage you to listen in. #mindblown #traumainformed #neverstoplearning #healthiswealth #ptsdawareness #astoriastherapist #astoria #LIC #courtsquare #drdansiegel #wheelofawareness #meditation #healing #epigenetics

I've always looked for more holistic ways of healing and I try to keep an open mind at all times. Just started reading Medical Medium and I'm looking forward to see what it has to say about PTSD.

We can ask for advice as much as we want but nothing compares to listening to yourself, your gut instinct, your intuition. #courtsquare #astoriastherapist #LIC #intuition #followyourgut #instinct #putyourselffirst

There's a lot of emotional energy in the air right now-can you feel it? (I can). Days like these are when I remember my Mark Nepo daily reader and I swear guys his excerpts always feel like they are hitting home.

As many of you know I've been recovering from hip surgery and today I got to walk on my own again! The last two months while learning to walk again was an unexpected trip into my psyche. I learned it's ok to be dependent on others at times in our life and that your support system is crucial. Any physical limitation or ailment is coupled with a mental/emotional one. As someone who is always looking for the lesson in things I am aware of how much more prepared I am to work with people with medical issues and medical based anxiety.
We grow through what we go through✌🏻

Happy Fri-yay! In my opinion this couldn't be more true. Find ways to support yourself on this journey both physically and emotionally. It's taken years to figure out what works for me but I finally have a system down. What works for you?

Have you guys heard Kesha's new music ,specifically her new song Praying? I remember watching the news coverage of her lost legal battle against her manager where she alleged years of sex abuse. She wasn't allowed to release music outside of her contract so she had to wait. I have to say the evolution of her music is so present. Finding yourself out of the depths of a deep depression, life transition that can feel like hell or even dealing with a trauma like sexual assault will change your soul. I listen and I think of all the people out there going through it and even remember times in my life that were that dark. She brings the hope and a message to others. I'm a fan.#kesha #keshapraying #traumainformedtherapist #astoriastherapist #astoria #courtsquare #healyourself #healwithmusic

Using my free Audible download to get in touch with some Dan Siegel wisdom! Going to @omegainstitute In September to see him for a weekend intensive.
I can't say enough about this guy. He's a brilliant researcher and visionary. His work on understanding attachments,trauma and our nervous system is incredible. He breaks everything down in a way that anyone can listen and you understand what he's talking about. If you are interested in understanding your interpersonal relationships check him out! #dansiegel #neurobiology #interpersonal #attachment #soulandsynapase #trauma #traumainformedtherapist #astoriastherapist #astoria #LIC #courtsquare #queens #omegainstitute

Our bodies hold onto our emotions in different ways. I see this everyday with my patients especially when I use EMDR to release trauma that is trapped in the body. #emdr #mindbody #mindbodywellness #release #letitgo #astoriastherapist #astoria #longislandcity #lic#courtsquare

Food for thought. It wasn't so long ago I traded in my peace for a steady paycheck only to learn the hard way that it was never going to make me happy. I had to put 100% of my energy into being a healer and once I did the peace came despite the fear it wouldn't.

Alright guys time to take some personal inventory ! Be open and honest about your answers. The next step is to reflect on your life 5 years ago and compare/contrast. How much have you shifted?

This caught my eye and it is SO true. Ask youself if you see health this way.. If so what does your investment look like? For me it's psychotherapy, acupuncture and eating gluten/ diary free. I get value out of those things and it's worth working into my personal budget. #healthiswealth #investinyourself #astoriastherapist
