"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" - Mary Oliver

I love this question because I believe it possesses a sort of magical property. In an instant, it shakes loose all the constraints and assumptions about how things must be, and invites you to pause and consider how they might be.

What might your life be like if you weren't consumed with fear, worry, or shame?

What might your life be like if your time and energy were available for the people and interests that truly lit you up?

What might your life be like tomorrow if you took one small (but bold) step today?

Questions like this create a sense of urgency. They stir up emotion. They spark action.

Therapy isn’t so different. If you’re living with anxiety or body image and eating concerns, know this: Those sensitivities and insecurities that keep you feeling stuck? They’re strengths and resilience in disguise. When your energy is finally freed up to use how you wish, there will be no stopping you.

Therapy works best when the latest, tested tools are shared between a client ready for change and a therapist who knows and understands what that feels like.

It’s a bit like walking the Myers-Briggs line between Thinking and Feeling. And you’re not walking alone.

Thoughts + feelings.

Brain + heart.

They don’t always agree. So, if right now both are telling you to take the next step, it might be time to listen.
