I really didn’t want to go to this workout class…

Last week, I had scheduled a dance class for Thursday morning at 8:30am. On Wednesday night, I could feel how tired my body was. I hadn’t been sleeping well all week (hello lunar eclipse on Friday!), and had already done some other workouts earlier in the week that left my body feeling heavy and tired.

I had never been to therapy before 3 years ago, when I decided to go because I was hurting so deeply from a breakup. I learned SO MUCH during my 3 years with my therapist and am excited to share more with you today. I hope that this post helps clear up some common questions about therapy, helps to de-stigmatize it even further by talking about it, and…
