We all internalize narratives about ourselves and the world from the culture in which we grew up. Some of those narratives serve us. Others don’t. The good news is, we can pick and choose which of those narratives we choose to believe as adults, and discard the rest. The bad news is, it isn’t easy. If there’s a story you’re telling yourself or someone else that has you stuck, talk to me. If you’re feeling ashamed of a particular identity or interest or just don’t know how to tell others about it, come see me. I’ve been doing the work of healing myself from shame, invalidation, and internalized toxic messages for over a decade; I can help.
