The oxygen mask drops down and you put yours on first - before you help others. Let's talk about what is really happening. I have been working to empower women for decades, in a culture that assumes we always "do" for others. I am passionate about helping women find emotional physical/health, balance, and loving relationships. Having help along the way makes a big difference. We will start with what is "Most Immediate" and work from there. It is the counselor-client relationship that makes a big difference, even more than helpful information. Change is always hard, I have wonderful resources, and would love to share these with you! I teach mindfulness and breathing practices when it is helpful. I use the Enneagram when helpful (9 personality types - for something so ancient, it is surprisingly practical). I am a clinically licensed counselor with 13 years experience (Illinois).
