  • Preparing for Surgery

    You're at the point where you've scheduled the surgery, the date is coming up, and you're feeling a little shaky in your boots.

    That's to be expected.

    Let's tap through any doubt, fear, worry, worst-case scenario thinking and let the body move through the discomfort to a place of confidence, pe...

  • Health Advice Paralysis

    With all of the conflicting advice in this wild world of wellness about the "root cause" and the "right" way to fix it, we can drive ourselves mad in an honest attempt to feel better.

    I know this feeling very well. Just putting myself back in that chapter of my own healing journey still makes my...

  • Tapping for Hope When You Feel Stuck

    The healing journey isn't linear. I would also add that it's not easy.

    We are continually grasping for stable ground, finding it, only to feel like it disappears as quickly as it arrives.

    It can feel like you don't even know who you'd be without all these symptoms, let alone how you'd be spend...

  • Begin Again!

    We allllll have those days where we wake up and we feel a little off.

    We feel a little grumpy. A little anxious. A little extra poky.

    If this happens to you randomly or maybe more days than you'd like to admit, try out this video and see what happens!

  • Moving Through Challenging Emotions

    We've all had those moments... coming down from a conflict or intense conversation, only to feel thrown off for what feels like much longer than we'd like.

    Or perhaps an emotion comes up and you're not sure what to do with it...maybe even feeling like you don't want to feel it and wish it would ...

  • Tapping for Indecision

    When it comes to making decisions, you might notice that even basic choices bring up a bit of tension & overwhelm in your system.

    This comes from a good place! There's a part of you wanting to make sure you make the right decision and don't feel a sense of regret or missing out after the fact.

    ...

  • Releasing the Overwhelm about "Healing"

    It can feel downright overwhelming to continually feel like you have to research and figure out your health, especially after you've tried so many protocols, seen so many doctors, stuck to all the diets, only to feel like nothing is working.

    The journey can feel isolating. It might feel both em...

  • Feeling Behind in Life/Healing

    I've heard varying iterations of:

    "I feel so behind in life"
    "I can't believe this is what my life looks like"
    "I'll never get this time back"
    "It feels like my life is passing me by..."

    These are thoughts I personally experienced in the thickest layers of illness where I physically could not ...

  • Tapping for Transitions

    A big move?

    A new career?

    Saying goodbye to "home" in order to build a new one somewhere new?

    Here's to finding a sense of continuity in the midst of big changes, especially if a part of you associates changes with stress & overwhelm.

    I find it helpful to honor that transitions can bring up a...

  • Feeling Limited

    Regardless of what phase of life you are in, feeling held back, restricted or limited in any way is bound to show up: that's the nature of things!

    There will always be trade offs, things we miss, things we "can't" get to or things we choose to do instead.

    There might be moments of regret, deep...

  • What if the Best is Yet to Come?

    The brain will sometimes tell us that our best days are behind us...

    Perhaps it tells us that we will never be as healthy, as strong, as free, as when we were in the past...and we had no idea the best days were passing by!

    This sequence is for you if you ever look back and feel like now is not ...

  • Tapering SSRIs & Medications

    Some of you have reached out over email or instagram messages sharing how intense and scary it can feel to taper off of certain mood stabilizing drugs.

    As you likely already know, getting off of Prozac, Lexapro, trazodone, & seroquel was a deeply critical and challenging time on my own journey: ...

  • Working with Frustrations

    We've all been in a situation that irritates us and leaves us feeling frustrated.

    Things can't always go according to plan or happen exactly how we'd like them to unfold. To make things easier on ourselves, we can learn to soften into the inevitable & frustrating moments of life with a sense of...

  • Do Nothing

    When you don't know what to do, the best next step might actually be to INTENTIONALLY choose to do nothing.

    What?!

    Yes, I know. It sounds a little irresponsible at first...

    It might feel weird if you are used to fixing and maneuvering your way out of a sticky situation.

    How could you possibly...

  • Accepting What Is

    We might find ourselves wishing things were different.

    We might stress ourselves out wondering what might've been if only we had _____ or if only we did ______.

    What if we can release some of this stress by learning to accept what is? From here we can wisely focus on what we can change in order...

  • Assuming the Best Outcome

    We can fall into what are called "limbic loops" in which we are literally stuck in a loop of threat as we imagine worst-case scenarios playing out.

    It can be TERRIFYING to do even basic things when our brain is fearing all of the negative things that might happen to us playing out as if they a...
