When you think therapist, what do you think of? A long couch, where you talk about your feelings? Circles of people holding cups of tea? Today’s guest Katie Loux is a certified Art Therapist who brings her love of creative expression to adults with disabilities.
Listen in to hear how she works with her clients, as well as what techniques she uses to keep herself happy! One of my favorites is her altered book. Here all about it on today’s episode!
As I continue on my happiness journey, I’ll share with all of you the things I’m trying. In January I attended my first retreat through the Copper Beach Institute at the Mercy By the Sea. The topic was an introduction to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, or MBSR. I’ll admit that I had some preconceptions about going to a retreat, and was both nervous and excited to learn more about mindfulness. Check out this podcast for my rundown of my top take aways and myths busted about retreats and courses!
Now that you know what we’re about, it seems fair that I should let you know what I am about. Although I am a psychologist, my own happiness journey has not been easy. Listen in to learn a little about my quarter life crisis, Pinterest obsessions, and more.
Left: Me in 2011, not taking care of myself and shortly about to learn I had developed severe sleep apnea.
Right: 2014 graduate school graduation. Figuring it out on the outside, still working on the inside
2017. The secret? Goat yoga. Kidding, but it does help.
