I'd like to share a rather unusual, free, aces prevention resource...parenting tips bumper stickers! Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo CA nonprofit, produces parenting tips bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to businesses, organizations, clinics, schools, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times!

Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting and prevent child abuse five, ten, twenty, fifty years down the road. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations begin and often a phone is used to take a photo of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see!

Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to order this free resource. Use a computer...our website is not optimized for phones. Please share.

Find acceptance. Discover freedom. Experience growth. Mend offers services that aim to holistically repair brokenness in various areas of a woman’s life by developing a safe environment and a strong therapeutic relationship in which a client can fully heal, grow, and live a free and abundant life.

Who likes to journal?! 🙌🏽 And who feels like journaling can sometimes just take too much time so you skip it?? Here are a few journaling prompts that are meaningful and can be done in a short amount of time.

Remaining present is key for the journaling session to be meaningful. It may only take 2 minutes but if you’re able to be present with your prompt, it’s much more effective.

What prompts have you found to be helpful in your journaling? Share with others below! 👇🏼

At some point in our lives, all of us are guilty of comparing ourselves to others.

We compare small things like our follower count on social media, the brands of our clothes, and the big things like how much we earn or how successful we are in life.

✨ Comparison focuses your attention on other's blessings and highlights things you lack.

✨ On the other hand, gratitude focuses your attention inwards, seeing the good things around you, and allows yourself to appreciate them better.

So today, we have a challenge for you! List down three things you are grateful for in the comments section down below! ⤵️

We are so excited to announce a new member to the Mend team, Morton Nixon! We are thrilled to have Morton join us! 🙌🏻 He works with men and women, ages 18+, both in person and virtually.

A little more about Morton:

Morton Nixon, LPC received his masters in counseling from SMU, after a major career change from a decade in corporate sales. It took having a child (as well as a good therapist and a supportive spouse) to finally realize that you do not have to settle for being unfulfilled at work. Since then, he has been working in partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs and loving it.

Morton works with adults who are struggling with living life. Often that takes shape as anxiety, depression, shame, overthinking, low self-worth, perfectionism, work stress, parenting problems, life transitions, and recovering from new or old traumas. There are options in our lives that we do not have the perspective to see and parts of ourselves that we have cut off to fit someone else’s mold. Morton enjoys helping clients feel more secure and authentic so they can be more of who they are.

Morton helps clients with practical tools like effective communication, emotional coping, and boundary setting. At the same time, he helps clients to put those skills in the bigger context of their lives, what gives them meaning and purpose. He is honored to partner with clients in exploring their stories to understand how they got to where they are and how they want to write the next chapter. He provides a secure place for clients to ask the big questions about their lives without getting lost along the way. Morton has a direct, non-judgmental, empathetic, and humorous style in therapy.

When he is not doing therapy, you can find Morton with his family either attending kids’ soccer games, doing art projects, or just getting baby snuggles. He invests most of his free time with his wife, 3 kids, and new sheepadoodle puppy. He also loves stories in all forms from movies and TV to books and podcasts. He loves to connect with people over whatever they are passionate about.

Welcome to the team! 🎉 Give us a call today to schedule a session with Morton!

Life is not a linear journey, and progress comes with its own bumps in the road. Improving a skill takes time and effort, but knowing how we grow is half the battle.

Do you find yourself hitting a block on your learning curve? Here are some tips to keep you going:

➡️ Remain consistent, even when your improvements feel small
➡️ Be patient throughout the slow start and keep your efforts sustained
➡️ Break the task into smaller tasks that can be mastered more quickly

By knowing our growth curve, we can set expectations accordingly and adjust our approach to what best suits us.

Relationships tend to change over time, with goals and values changing, that you might reach the point where you might feel a little off in your relationship.

Sometimes, it's hard to distinguish if you have become unhappy with the relationship or you were just having a bad day. 

This kind of challenge is a normal part of life, but it doesn't automatically mean that you have gone to the end of the relationship or fallen out of love.

If you feel this way, it's best to open communication with your partner and honestly express what you feel.

Mend Counseling has an ongoing Prepare / Enrich program where we help couples establish boundaries and promote open and honest communication to strengthen their bond.

If you think you and your partner can benefit from this, call our landline at (469) 801-9055 to schedule or click the link in our bio for more information.

Your trauma did not have to teach you a lesson.
Your trauma did not have to make you stronger.

A trauma is a trauma, your body's response to an overwhelming event in your life.

And you did not deserve it; it shouldn't have happened to you.

Take your time to process everything and recover from it; it was not meant to be a lesson you have to learn from.

If you need help in navigating through your trauma, we have professionals onboard here in Mend Counseling specializing in trauma. Click the link in our bio to connect with us.

In life, nothing is permanent. 
Circumstances will continually change. 
We will need to move and learn along the way, so we must strive for personal development. 

SWIPE to know the importance of personal development.

Personal development is a continuous cycle of learning and adapting, whether in different aspects of life such as personal, career, or relationships. 

It gives you the chance to reflect both on your strengths and weaknesses so that you can work on them. Don't you agree?

It's time to let go of the act and be your unique self. ✨

▶ Stop living your life trying to be someone you're not just to please others. It's going to exhaust you. Instead, spend your energy finding and establishing your values in life and living with and through them.

▶ Be honest and open with yourself and with other people. Speak up. There is no shame in showing your vulnerability.

▶ Remember that perfection does not exist. Accept the mistakes you made and learn from them. It's okay to be imperfect because that's what makes you human.

Give yourself the chance to be authentic and be understood by the people around you. By doing this, you also allow yourself to have the contentment you desire. ❤

If you need a guide in helping yourself practice self-compassion, join other women in Mend Counseling's 5-week group therapy happening from April 15 to May 13, 2022. Click the link in our bio for more details or call us at 972-755-9642.

The right person will find their way to you.

It is not about how long you have been together, but it is about how you make it stronger. 

Every relationship is different from one another but at the of end of the day it should be your mutual choice of staying.

Stop thinking and start doing.

First things first, passive learning is important.

It helps us understand things in theory and help us make more informed decisions.

But it shouldn't end here.

It's very important that we also practice to be more involved and to reveal necessary insights.

It helps us to be more proficient and improve our skill set and/or knowledge.

Both passive learning and active practice is vital to keep us growing.

It should come hand in hand.
