So- this happened today- I’m on stage during the clinical demonstration session with Esther Perel on sex and intimacy! Thrilling and a really interesting personal exercise- inviting someone near you using only non verbals, and when invited deciding if, how slowly, and how to approach. . . Met another great human in the process during the demo and, of course, Esther’s style and approach is refreshing and an inspiration. . . . Also, totally a moment of courage getting up impromptu without at all knowing what I was getting in to in front of a sea of therapists!! ☺️ . .

Finally seeing Sue Johnson live- in the flesh! I first heard about her work like 6 years ago before myself venturing into EFT - emotion focused couples therapy- but I have never heard her speak in person. First saw the tribute to Minuchin with Jeff Zeig and then an afternoon-long workshop. Incredible. And beyond all the amazing evidence based work- What a gem of a person to be in the room with. . . . Nuggets -  from tribute, across all 3 perspective the work is to look at dances/dynamics that pull certain behaviors forward and make other behaviors harder to come out. How we push away the people we actually want to be near the most. . . From workshop: the most powerful thing we can do is help shape emotions which change the music of the relationship dance. Self reliance isn’t the answer. And the content of the fight doesn’t matter- the question underneath is always, “are you there for me?” . . #evolutionofpsychotherapy #evoanaheim #mentalhealthawareness #psychotherapy  #psychology #healthyrelationships #learning #projectyespllc #doctortats
Amazing opening talk about the physiology of psychological stress by Dr. Sapolsky at the #evolutionofpsychotherapy conference! Also, there are 7000 plus people here. . . . Talk Nuggets: unlike many animals, we as humans- along with baboons- have prolonged stress responses that cause dysfunction and diseases that didn’t even exist before. . . Factors that matter include not just the presence or anticipation of stressors, but how we respond to them, what we do after, and social support. We as humans are particularly good at anticipating stressors to the point of disease and misery. Even our tissue repair shuts down. No wonder we have inflammation, GI and cardiovascular issues, cognitive problems and sexual concerns! .. #evoanaheim #psychology #psychotherapy #learning #projectyespllc #doctortats
Quick stop on my drive up highway 1. Been a long time since I’ve visited this place!  #meditationgarden #california #encinitas #nofilter #projectyespllc #doctortats
Visiting at one of my favorite beaches on a semi sunny California day. I used to come here when I was in college and sit on the boardwalk wall, and watch the waves to put my mind at ease. I find that watching the ocean is a form of unplugging, and I like coming here to connect to its rhythmic image and drone like tone. That, and this beach’s unpretentious, mellow vibe :) . . #oceanbeachpier #instayoga #emotionalwellness #projectyespllc #doctortats
That’s what 938 undies going to charity looks like, all purchased from #mygabes ! Over $1000 spent! So excited to be doing this campaign and exceeding last year’s efforts. Now even more people in need, from toddlers to adults size 3x will have the comforts we may all take for granted- underwear.  Please note: I am still short on two categories of underwear- toddler girls and men’s, and will continue to make each dollar that comes in count!! . .

Wisdom from a book I am reading by the awesome #brenebrown. We all have to find a way to cultivate hope! What do you do to nurture these traits in yourself, to strengthen self belief, determination, and to not let disappointments deter you?

Lessons from nature:  When we touch something from nature, we can let go of some of our burdens and feel more alive.  One of my favorite sensations in nature since I as a kid was touching moss. It takes a moment to notice and find it. If it is growing, it is lush and green. I love the soft, velvety texture that wraps around cool, dense rock. Isn’t it interesting how something so soft can grow around what seems so impermeable?  Maybe a good metaphor for transformation, that it is possible for something soft and inviting to grow within us even around the most hardened parts.  #lessonsfromnature #naturelover #touch #emotionalwellness #projectyespllc #doctortats
Yes- eating veggies can be delicious!  Last night’s dinner: ginger garlic shallot base, peppers, carrots, two color cabbages, rice noodles, broccoli and chicken breast (delicious without it too!) Sauce: gluten free fish sauce, red chili flakes, and lots of lime. Can substitute gluten free aminos for fish sauce.  Served topped with fresh cherry tomatoes and green onions.  #healthyfood #integrativenutrition #glutenfree #emotionalwellness #selfcare #durhamnc #projectyespllc #doctortats
A little bit of afterglow in the sky as I leave work today @restoringbalancedurham - thankful for pleasant weather, perfect for mid day walking sessions #naturelover #sunset #mindfulness #nofilter #emotionalwellness #projectyespllc #doctortats #integrativehealth #healthcoaching #durhamnc #bullcity
Taking on my challenges one at a time: learned to ride a bike in my 30’s and went on my first trail ride :) learning to ride as an adult was one of the most difficult things I have had to learn, with all the mental chatter about falling, can’ts, and the periodic cursing. But this too can be done- it’s just the mind saying no but you can teach it to say yes!  #mindovermatter #naturelover #goals #sayyes #projectyespllc #doctortats
Did you know the #1 item on Christmas wishlists in shelters are underwear?? Starting Thanksgiving Day, I’m raising money again to buy clean undies and hopefully make someone’s holiday a little more comfortable. We all take this basic form of human decency for granted.  This is a repeat of my fundraiser from last year- let’s see if we can beat 800 pairs!! https://www.gofundme.com/funding-undies-for-the-homeless  Link in profile.  #gratitude #thanksgiving #intentionalliving #charity #giving #projectyespllc #doctortats
Hanging out with a little creature a few moments before it flew free. Reminds me of memories from being a kid. There were long blades of grass by the playground, at the end of the field, that on warm days would be covered with ladybugs. I would squat on the ground and hold up my hands, and let them crawl all over my fingers before settling them back in the grass folds.  #naturelover #bugs #mindfulness #childatheart #durhamnc #projectyespllc #doctortats

Thank you to all of the wonderful people who came today for the Morning of Mindfulness Mini Retreat.  It was a pleasure to have 12 of us together in practice of slowing down, concentration, breathing, and finding joy.  The day couldn’t have been more perfect for walking outside and finding a peaceful pace amidst the holiday bustle.  Looking forward to our next retreat- to be announced in January !  I️ am grateful to be part of @restoringbalancedurham so that events like this can be offered in a beautiful space and supported. Thank you also to #globalbreathstudio for lending us cushions and for @bowerbirdflowers for the lovely flower arrangements.  #mindfulness #morning #breathe #meditation #om #durhamnc #bullcity #integrativehealth #wellnesscoaching #projectyespllc #doctortats
