I had some weird beliefs that were limiting my wardrobe, but letting a stylist guide me on my first-ever shopping spree really helped open my mind.
Family Drama
Yes, we share a bed with our baby. And it totally works for our family.
It Happened To Me
As helpers, we have to realize that control is not the answer, either for us or for our clients. We can reach out, support, care, listen, reflect, and suggest. We cannot make a life that is unbearable bearable.

I can only imagine the mind games I would play with myself if I restricted my daily food intake to 100 bites.
It Happened To Me
The way she treated me, she made it seem like I was the worst student in the world. They were having money troubles, so I was surprised when she told me they had put down a deposit on an apartment and she had bought a used truck.

I have Ravens floor mats in my car. There is a Flacco jersey hanging in my closet, and I have several cute purple tops that I rotate through for my office’s participation in Purple Fridays.
