I first became aware of Brene’ Brown through a work colleague. She became quite a hit in 2010 when she gave a ground breaking TED talk (http://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability.html ). She is actually a researcher who I believe can inspire amazing ways of looking at our needs as human beings to be perfect. Many of us have made it a sport to become perfect or try to be perfect. She is a fabulous storyteller and can give some great insights into perfectionism, connection with others and the things that get in the way of our enjoyment. Listen to her TED Talk.

I’m a mental health therapist and I love working with people to help them reach their goals in better living. I’ve been in the field for about 20 years, working as a therapist for 10. I feel very lucky to do the work I do and thankful to the clients who trust me to work with them. I am committed to staying current with research and new things in the mental health field. Here, I will post links to some of the things I’m reading about. I hope you will enjoy reading and maybe feel inspired to take on the journey of counseling.
