Tell Me Something About You, Paige.
I'm happy to share my story, and personal experiences anytime you would like to ask.
I was born in 1970 and started seeing my own therapists at the age of 14. I have kept 2-3 therapists/healers on my weekly support team every since. I attend regular weekly therapy, support groups, advanced psychological trainings, and indigenous healing training. Before I was out of my teens, I was already devouring spiritual and esoteric books of all kinds. I earned my bachelor's degree in Social Work when I was 28, but never worked in the field because by graduation day, I had two babies in diapers! I had my hands full. Those years raising small humans were full-blown learning years for me. Family dysfunction, alcoholism, addiction, depression in my close family were affecting me deeply. I like to say that I've lived 10 lifetimes in the past 50 years. It sure does feel like it.
My life has been a non-stop series of challenges which I usually enjoy looking at, head-on - in the face. I say usually, because there have been a few incidents, so unspeakable, that I've needed more help to really look at everything. I can honestly say that my passion in life is looking at whatever is REAL without turning away. I love to love the unlovable. I love to seek the hidden mysteries of life and of people. I look for the best in people - naturally. It's not hard for me to see people without judgment. I love helping people remember the truth about who they are so that all else can fall away.
The only real thing is LOVE. Everything else is false and can be let go of. Once we do that - we feel SO FREE!!!! I had to learn that the hard way.... just like everyone else.
I am proud to be an "open book", willing to share whatever it is you are curious about. In fact, I don't believe therapy can be effective without an equal playing ground on which we stand. I am not here to be your "superior". I am here to offer you my sincere friendship, my personal experience and strength, my professional guidance, and to help facilitate the beauty of your unfoldment.
