episode 10: Rest Doesn't Restore You When It's Your Soul That's Tired.
Many of us are feeling exhaustion that doesn't respond to rest or relaxation. I believe this is a fatigue of the soul that is longing for inspiration, connection, and laughter. The body needs rest, but the soul needs hope and growth.

episode 6: When Distance Feels Like Home in Intimate Relationships

episode 3: Creating Inner Harmony with Archetypes
Let's talk inner harmony! Our self-identity informs how we show up in the world and dictates our behavior more than any other influence. Working with archetypes can support further integration, giving us more awareness and control as we close the gap of the shadow. This can be playful and fun! It sounds very deep and dark, I know, but it can be even more fun to play a dark character-- exploring our darkness is empowering.  And all of our moving parts have reactions to each other too. Can't we all just get along?

episode 2: the Healing Journey Spiral, Navigating Sensitivity
Knowing that the healing path isn't a straight line helps take the pressure off when we revisit lessons and circumstances. Notice that, during the climb, you come back around the mountain to similar sights to reveal a new layer from a higher vantage point. Progress is key! Forget perfection.
