We see your efforts ❤️. Continue protesting, donating, amplifying Black Voices, Reading, educating yourself, immersing yourself in our history, walking with us, standing with us, understanding systemic oppression and racism, and keep having those difficult conversations with your friends and family. If it’s uncomfortable to post or have these conversations because your family is racists. Ask yourself. Do I want to be comfortable or do I want to grow and make a difference in the world?

Right now Therapist are not ok! My fellow Therapists know all to well about the eye drops and glasses combo. This week is hitting us a little different. I really debated on posting this, but Here you have a clip of me in between telehealth sessions; holding back tears (barely); getting the red out my eyes; and preparing to hold space for another. •
*Please note: I am the Queen of self-care, I take time for myself, I’ve already had 3 days off, I work out; meditate; keep my chakras balanced, drink plenty water; see my own Therapist and I get plenty of rest.* There is just not enough self Care in the world to combat the feelings you get when you think of the trials and tribulations of your people. •
•We are human. And right now we too are hurting and struggling. Being able to hold space for others is an honor. To be trusted and to witness another’s most precious journeys in life is an absolute gift. This week has been especially hard for Therapist, especially My Black Therapist. To be a witness to another’s pain, fear, and terror will leave anyone with emotional residue. To witness clients going through Vicarious trauma (*secondary trauma, indirect exposure to a traumatic event through a first hand account or narrative of the event) has been extremely painful and maybe even triggering. But then to ALSO be Black and already have trauma from your ancestors in your DNA🧬 (transgenerational trauma) on top of Vicarious trauma is PURE SORROW! •So to all of my Therapist on the front line! I see you, I hear you, I love you, and Thank You for accepting this calling alongside with me! ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻✊❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Bringing a little light and “Boogie” to your timeline. Today is Self-Care Sunday! And like I stated in my previous video. We need us! Make sure you are taking care of yourself mentally, spiritually, physically, and emotionally. You are not less because you take a time out from the cause! Refresh, renew, refuel, and refocus. We need you!

Imagine being birthed into a world and hearing stories from loved ones, watching movies, documentaries, reading books; witnessing deaths; media’s horrendous contribution to the depiction of your people, and seeing your people murdered day in and day out with no resolve. Then wake up and dress your young black children with hopes of them becoming the best that they can be. Only for someone to see them as a target because of the color of their skin. And THEN send them out knowing you can’t protect them….KNOWING THIS! Only for this cycle to repeat with every generation 🤯. So this very question, “what is it going to take for you to be ok tonight and stop this chaos?” Wait, tonight!??? Just Tonight???? Understand, we’ve been holding on to this pain from generation to generation (genetic memory;transgenerational trauma). My son has been scared shitless of a police car since he was old enough to know who they were. He can’t even greet the cop at his SCHOOL without feeling apprehension. So as sweet as my son is, imagine him already having this knowing. And as years pass, how will that knowing develop? That’s on society right? We are Tired. We are hurt, we are Done. So the anger you see in these streets…This is a build up due to the lack of change and protection. So when we say stop killing us. This is why. These are the effects. Seriously, How much capacity would you have to continue to accept hate and continuous killing of your people/loved ones? #BlackLivesMatter

A “red flag” is a good intuitive image 🚩to help you process what you’re really feeling. Sometimes red flags are plain as day and if you have the tendency to ignore them. I suggest you connect with a Therapist to help you navigate through areas in your life (relationships, family conflict, etc) where red flags have a tendency to go overlooked. Seeing a Therapist is a good way to stay on top of red flags and move forward more successfully in your life and relationship endeavors. .

My client wanted to tell spooky stories today in our session. So I told them the storyline from “Thriller”…”Darkness Falls across the land. The midnight hour is close at hand. Creatures crawl in search of blood.” They loved it! 😂🤷🏾‍♀️#MentalHealthAwarenessMonth #rapportbuilding

Journaling serves as a brain dump to purge any mental residue (anger, judgments, frustrations) that may have built up during the week. #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek
