I think it’s safe to say that none of us had a perfect childhood, and we all carry around behaviours and unhealed pain that don’t serve us. But it doesn’t have to be this way: our past may have created our patterns, but we can change them with some self-awareness and the right tools. Join my bestie Vienna Pharaon and me as we dive into understanding and overcoming wounds from our Family of Origin, so you can move beyond your frustrating patterns in life and love and into a more liberated way of being.
Vienna is a licensed marriage and family therapist and one of New York City’s most sought-after relationship therapists.
