Willie and I didn't stand a chance.
We both came from dysfunctional families. I was taught to shut down my emotions, keep my feelings to myself and compromise my needs to make others happy. So when I met Willie, it was love at first sight. (Seriously!) We both thought love and attraction alone would keep us together. But boy were we both wrong. One month away from divorce and a lot of self-work kicked our butts into gear to reconnect and build a strong foundation. 20 years later, we are committed to growing together and learning more about how to be intimately connected.
Usually consists of me negotiating all the reasons why I should go back to sleep and why I need to get my ass up and workout.
Creating a dance floor in my kitchen, singing to my girls, and sneaking in a kiss all while the girls are shouting ewwwww!
Bullshit, superficial shit or sugar coating things. I'm not about giving you what you want.
True love, vulnerability, the power of surrender, and living life to the fullest.
I realized It’s not his fault that I didn’t make myself a priority! I started working on myself by identifying my needs and putting them first, everything changed. I was a better mom, wife and more importantly I was unapologetically ME!
Once I started to work on my own issues, lack of confidence, inability to control my emotions and communicate what I was feeling without criticism, everything changed.
I’m no different from you, even as a therapist I too have struggled with connecting and communicating with my husband. Just like you, I wanted my husband to grow with me. Just like you, I wanted a healthy marriage. One that would make newlyweds jealous. I know I have that now and I am excited to teach you how to do the same.
My superpower is to help couples take ownership of the issues they bring into the relationship by teaching, motivating, encouraging, and guiding them outside of their comfort zones.
I felt alone, unseen, unsupported and unappreciated. My morning routine would consist of me jumping out of bed, running around the house trying to make breakfast and getting the kids ready. My husband's responsibilities included getting himself dressed. Why did he have it so easy? Why did he look like a GQ model and I looked like the hired help?
