SELF-CARE

As a psychologist, my days are spent gratefully being of service to others and experiencing the blessing of walking alongside someone’s journey.  It also means holding emotional energy throughout the day which often varies from session to session.

I truly believe my clients deserve the best of me and in order to do so, I have to take good care of myself.  Therefore, taking the time to practice self-care and allow my soul to recharge is vital.  It could be intentional in choosing solitude, a nap, a good meal, connection with loved ones, a run, etc.  Today, the ocean was my place of refuge and rejuvenation.

Do you take the time to self-care?

The Value of Motherhood – Love and Hope for all Mother’s

For EVERY mother who has ever questioned the value and importance of their calling…Your love is one of the greatest gifts and has the power to influence how a person see’s and love’s themselves. Your role is significant and deeply powerful.

For mother’s who have a wonderful connection with their children, I hope you are blessed with continued opportunities to experience love, growth, and laughter.

For mother’s who have perhaps strained or absent relationships, I hope for an abundance of healing and transformation.

For mother’s who have lost children, I hope for an outpour of love, comfort, support, and peace.

For those who long to be mother’s, I hope you are surrounded with love, strength, and clarity.

Wishing you all so much goodness, joy, and a very Happy Mother’s Day!!!

Center for Discovery

Years ago I worked at Center for Discovery in LA and thankfully, I still have the opportunity to keep in touch with their San Diego team!

Yesterday, I was able to spend some time with Cassie Gaub, San Diego’s clinical outreach representative, who helps connect clients with the right program and support they need.  She is warm, friendly, and like CFD, passionate about personal growth and recovery!

Center for Discovery provides “residential treatment for women with eating disorders, teens with eating disorders, teens with mental health disorders, and teens with substance abuse issues”. For more information, feel free to contact their admissions team, 866.480.3475 or check out their website:
