My Precious Child

There has been an inner storm brewing, I think, for quite a while now. Slow building insights, tiny little gut punches. I've sort of pocketed it all away. Watched the gray clouds pass overhead, waiting for meaning to make itself. I think that time came; something clicked into place today as one of my therapists [...]

Planning Birth as a survivor of SA

TW: talk of sexual assault/rape, please be in a safe place with support if this may act as a trigger. As you likely know by now, if you've read my previous posts, I am currently "as big as a house" pregnant. (Okay, okay, 35 (almost 36) weeks pregnant). I am discovering that as my estimated [...]

Game Face

This week was my second week of Spravato treatments and my last week on the starter dose. Next week we increase. I'm nervous. On the low dose, I'm able to function through the effects of the medication. I keep my game face on; I work, see a few clients, teach my yoga, and attend to [...]

Spravato: A Personal Account

I've been going through a lot of transition with therapists lately. I started seeing J this summer. And we had about 3 or [...]

Sometimes when we are raised in settings that are clinically defined as "less than nurturing" or "not good enough" (depending on whose language you choose) we learn ways of coping which, in the moment, are [...]

New Podcast

I am super excited to see where this goes. I decided to create a podcast... because I can. 🤷‍♀️ This is what I am hoping: 1) that it be a place where people can feel free to submit the questions they've always wanted to ask their therapists but have been too afraid or too ashamed. [...]

Missing a Therapist

I think there are probably quite a lot of people out there who are wondering: why do I miss my therapist so much between sessions? Or, maybe, like me, their therapist has moved states, referred out, or some other variation of ending the relationship; and, they find themselves feeling a deep sense of grief they [...]
