Sometimes there are no words for the sensations, tension, and stories held in the body. TSY helps participants to become mindful and curious without becoming overwhelmed by utilizing choice and engaging in the present moment.
.
.
Befriending the body and helping one’s nervous system to slowly build trust and safely move out of fight/flight/freeze/or fawn (collapse) our bodies natural defense mechanisms against threat.

Rigid or Enmeshed? Are you doing the eye-roll, another person talking about boundaries? Do you struggle to see the importance of boundaries or maybe you feel powerless to ever have boundaries?
.
.
Boundaries are vital to your own mental health and relational health. Rigid boundaries lead to isolation, depression, loneliness. Enmeshed boundaries lead to anxiety, guilt, feeling drained.
.
.
Boundaries help distinguish who you are separate from another person. Being in relationship with others who have healthy boundaries feels energizing and life-giving. It allows for authentic connection and being known.

Find the little things that keep your spirits up and keep grounded! This season is fast and furious. Lots of business, emotion, joy, and grief.
.
.
Somewhere in there maybe a message to keep it together, put on a happy face, and just keep going.
.
.
Can you say, hello burnout, irritability, emptiness...I get it, I could feel myself moving to that place this weekend.
.
.
Find a minute to do something that grounds you, helps you to reset, slowdown, find perspective, even if it’s as simple as drinking your favorite cup of coffee!
.
.
What are ways you are resetting during the rush of the season?

Mindfulness takes courage. It doesn’t ask “why” and instead asks “what.”
.
.
Why keeps the frontal lobe off line and continues patterns of hyper or hypoarousal.
.
.
What are you noticing, helps the frontal lobe come back online and engages mindfulness. It takes courage to slow down and notice.
.
.
It can feel scary to slow down and explore, however, it is often the beginning of deeper regulation.
.
.
With mindfulness explore the 5 core organizers. (Thoughts, emotions, inner sensations, movement, and 5 senses)
.
.
What are my thoughts saying?
What emotions am I experiencing?
What movements are happening or wanting to happen in my body?
What sensations am I experiencing?
What 5 senses are triggered? (Image, smell, sound, taste, touch)
.

Struggle is real. Hardships are real. Anxiety is real. Depression is real. Relational distress is real. PTSD is real. Grief is real.
.
.
Reaching out takes real courage. As a former athlete myself, perseverance is highly rewarded. Just keep going, push through. We need perseverance, however I am a firm believer we also need to have the courage to know when our coping skills feel ill equipped for all that life has thrown at us. Covid has thrown a lot at everybody; families, athletes; marriages, children, jobs, finances.
.
.
If your body is tired of persevering only to find yourself in the same patterns repeating the same cycles; consider reaching out. It may surprise you!

Your. Voice. Matters.

We see that today as election votes are counted. May be this year you feel the importance of your voice, your vote.
.
.
For those with trauma or a family system that did not promote being heard, you are working extra hard to know this.
.
.
sharing your voice, your thoughts, may have come with punishment, judgement, silent treatment, abuse, disapproval, rejection, etc.
.
.
If you are working hard these days to believe your voice matters, keep showing up, keep speaking up. Take courage.

W.A.I.T stands for Why Am I Talking. My job is to listen. To listen and really hear my clients. Hear what’s being said and even those things that are right at or under the surface.
.
.
What others say has so much meaning and impact. If I am not listening, I won’t be able create attainment and attachment with my clients.
.
.
Don’t get my wrong, I love to talk. I can have lots to say. However, word that are timely, empathetic, and attuned are powerful, connecting, and healing.
.
.
Sometimes, I silently notice and ask myself, WAIT (why am I talking). Is my own stuff coming up, am I trying to fix, am I feeling uncomfortable. As a therapist, I try to attune to my inner part and mindful of the words I do speak.

Relational craziness can be difficult to make sense of. However, viewing it through the lenses of you and your partners “crazy cycle” can make the craziness make sense. Make sense?
.
.
In our humanness we get triggered, whether it be from past trauma or experiences
.
.
And pretty soon your trigger and emotional reaction/behaviors are triggering your partner and often without knowing it you are spiraling quickly!
.
.
Couples counseling can help identify your triggers and reactions, and give you the tools to communicate the underlying emotions and needs.
.
.
We ALL get triggered. Stepping out of the negative cycle takes some curiosity and courage to see yourself and own your part.

Grace & Truth are key ingredients in relationships. They are foundational values for me as a therapist.
.
.
I first learned how they intersected by reading, Boundaries by Cloud & Townsend.
.
.
Grace keeps us in relationship with people. It holds out love for our humanness. Truth shows where ownership and responsibility need to be taken for actions, thoughts, and feelings that may or may not be accurate.
.
.
Relationships with only grace leave people feeling used and burnt out. Only grace over time, is like a license for “anything goes.”
.
.
Only truth in relationship feels harsh and pushes others away. Truth-tellers appear one-up or better than.
.
.
When I sit with a client and listen, I have so much grace and compassion, it allows me to lean in. AND, I am also brining truth. The truth helps them to see themselves or their patterns more accurately.
.
.
Both ingredients are essential. Grace allows for love and truth allows for boundaries. Who in your life brings grace and truth? Are those the relationships that mean the most to you?
.
.
and truth

Welcome to Ezra Counseling

We All Need Help

Harsh realities of humanity, brokenness, abuse, loss and relational struggles find ways to seep gradually and sometimes abruptly into our lives and relationships. Until we become bound up with fear, anxiety, depression, addiction, performance, and no longer recognize who we are.

Ezra means help, in its Hebrew origin. Reaching out for help in the midst of life’s struggles and pain takes courage. We are with you, you can heal, change, grow; find freedom.

Don’t wait to seek help.
