Let’s have an honest conversation about stress, anxiety and depression.
They are not simply symptoms of family history or chemical imbalance.
Often I’ve seen in my practice that these expressions of poor mental health are caused by poor, weak, or NO boundaries.
I’ve seen so many cases of how poor boundaries contribute to poor mental health.
But saying “No” is not the only boundary you need.
The unwillingness to say no, the lack of awareness of harmful people, and unhealthy expectations can lead to anxiety, depression, stress, and overwhelm, which all negatively impact mental AND physical health.
Tune in to learn how you can improve your health by developing healthy boundaries, the foundation of mental health and wellness.
“My path to health began with boundaries. I was shy and whenever around people I would sit and watch, drawn to the nuances of interaction. And I could tell when people were pleased or pained by what someone else said or did. I could see when lines (boundaries) were crossed.
And I went from watching, to learning, to experiencing, and now to teaching about boundaries and total health. Without the understanding of what boundaries are, how they work, and personal responsibility, then we make poor choices that put us in mental and physical harm’s way.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist for 20+ years and have worked with adults carrying old wounds from being abused or mistreated by others with poor boundaries.
