Way back when I first moved to Portland and was re-starting my private practice, I watched Brene Brown's talk on authenticity and self-worth and it fundamentally shifted my life and my work with clients.
I felt validated in my work and life's purpose like I had never experienced before. Her speech talks about vulnerability, truth, and our deep longing for connection in relationships. I'd been wrestling with all three in my own life- and had been helping others with those for years but had never heard them connected to shame before.
I watched this video and dove headfirst into a new identity as a shameslayer- helping clients, friends, and myself show up and be seen in the world with authenticity and courage. I trained with Brene that spring and have been bringing her work to retreats, groups, and clients ever since.
If you're thinking about working with me, you're going to want to watch this video to help understand some of the foudnations of my work with clients.
I have a few openings for new clients at the end of this month. Let me know what you think of the video in a free consultation. I'd love to chat with you!
