From Work

The Therapist Who Lived

Hello friends! It’s been a few days since I blogged; I was out of town kicking up my heels away from work! Yay! Yesterday back at work but had a nasty run in with a mean lady (not a client)! She appeared at our facility in Salt Lake and I decided to make the effort to repair our relationship; after our last phone call I told her I would not communicate with her by phone ANYMORE-only by email. So when she showed up I thought I would be a bigger person and speak with her (mistake). She is argumentative, insulting,…

Fashion Addicted Self Care

Hey friends! How was your Monday? Glad it’s over??? Me too LOL Last week I took a values assessment (work related) and I discovered in four values areas: work, relationships, leisure, and personal growth-health that I am lacking in the leisure area. Who knew?? I graded myself two dots away from “bullseye” in work and relationships but then realized I work pretty hard and am dedicated- along with being connected in the vital relationships in my life- so I thought that might be a judgement of myself. I graded two dots away from bullseye in personal growth/health because of my…

Posing? (no training)

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday! I have lots of training (years and years) in my professional job. I’m a therapist and went to graduate school while also doing separate trainings each year since graduation to stay current with treatment best practices. By comparison, I haven’t really had any formal training in my quest to be…

Closet Shopper!

Hello Friends and happy Friday! How fun is it to have a four day work week? I know that a five day week is not really much different than a four day but somehow it makes everything amazing! The last little while I have been closet shopping (my own, shh) LOL! I’ve been trying to…

Happy in sorrows

Hello friends! I thought I would give an update to my week- it’s been a full week! My employer is paying for me to travel to (city- undetailed as it would give info about my client) and visit my client’s memorial service which is really nice that they are willing to take care of this…

Wipeout Wednesday

Hello friends! I think today is the most difficult Wednesday I’ve had all year. You know I’m a therapist right? So it seems like today 75% of my clients were in distress, which means a high level of distress for me. If a couple of my clients are distressed, I can usually manage without difficulty.…

Happy New Year -be prepared to battle January

Happy 2018! Wow the years seem to fly by don’t they? I remember being young (high school) and always wished time to go by faster…now that I’m not in high school, time seems to go by too fast. Take for instance the holidays…I just love the holidays (and time off work) and here we are…

At work not working? Ideal Life

So I’m at work but it’s that weird time of year …I saw a post on IG that perfectly explained my dilemma. I took days off for Christmas and have New Years Day off, but here I am at work, met with clients in the early morning (8am- so I left my house at 7am…
