I spent two different evenings this week with my amazing therapist Ali. And as I walked out tonight after our session, it occurred to me that despite how far we’ve come, we have done a significant disservice in some circles to those who need someone objective and trained to talk to about the issues all humans face.
Through the years my therapists…Stan, Janeen, & now Ali…have provided me with a safe place to talk through abuse trauma, work issues, stress, fear, and family dynamics. Each have played a role in making me the person I am today.
And right now, Ali is walking through a very hard season with me in my professional life. She is working through PTSD, triggers, and old story lines with me. She is an empath who feels a lot of what I’m sharing very deeply and I am so grateful for her spirit, wisdom, help, and healing heart.
So….IF you are in distress, please reach out! Having good mental health support is critical during times of stress, crisis, or hell…just a regularly Thursday!
I’m happy to answer questions via the comments here or via email (leah@localhost) about what has worked for me and what has not.
I’ll leave you with the parting words of one of my favorite human beings:
