Brutal Deliverance

Hey friends! All this week I’ve been in a work paid training to assist my clients in moving beyond their trauma. The intervention is DBT PE-Dialectical Behavior Therapy- Prolonged Exposure. The last two days we discussed (8:30-430) rationale for treatment, statistics showing drastic improvement or elimination of PTSD symptoms and structure of the intervention. Today and tomorrow we watched videos of actual sessions (signed release of clients in video to use for training-no names) to help us understand how to administer the treatment. One thing about watching the videos of sessions is that we as participants are privy to the…

Wardrobing Shorts!

Hello friends and happy Sunday! I’ve been having some fun with shorts. I touched on it in a previous post but I’m seeing something different with this one. I’ve wore a few different outfits combining shorts with what are essentially cardigans (although each are somewhat different). I have a pair of distressed jean shorts that…

Way to go Friday!

Hello friends and happy Friday! Speaking of Friday; what do you usually think of on Friday? Happiness, chillax, casual, TGIF, weekend, days off, partay? These are all things I think but today started off different. I needed new tires on my race machine (haha maxima) so I went to Big-O early for tires and alignment.…

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,…

Sister Pride

Hey Friends! I’m sharing some pride in my sister, let me tell you all about it: Last night I was scrolling through Facebook and found a post from a distant relative. It appeared she had taken a picture of the back/behind of two women in swim attire and proceeded to shame them based on their weight and appearance; calling them “visual pollution”….so offensive right? I was surprised to see this coming from someone I know. I then scrolled down and read a comment my sister Tenae posted; saying she found this sad that a woman would take a picture of…

Celebrate with Shorts
