Letting Go and Letting Be….

I’m practicing “letting go” and “letting be”…Let me explain….. Aaron started walking with me a few weeks ago. Then the weather got colder, I took some time off from walking, and I didn’t ask Aaron to continue. Yes, he’s autistic, but he’s also 26 years old. I decided I wouldn’t pressure him about walking and…

Hello. My Name is Keischa. I Am A Therapist. I Have COVID Brain.

Late last summer, my husband, Paul, and I contracted COVID-19. Those days were quite the experience, to say the least. There were periods of time where we felt so bad, we knew would surely die.

“Wherever I Go, Aaron Goes”

My sons Bryant (driver) and Aaron. My youngest son, Bryant, just got his driver’s license a few months ago. Without hesitation, my oldest son, Aaron jumps right on the passenger side and rides with Bryant wherever he goes. This warms for my heart for so many reasons. My children (young men, I know) are both…

My Wellness Journey – Progress Report

ain’t gone lie: I was a bit nervous today before my doc appointment. I have NOT been the most obedient when it comes to my wellness journey. The last 2 weeks have been quite the party 🎉. Nonetheless, I marched into my doctors office, took off my coat, shoes and almost took my bandana off…

It’s Okay Not To Be Ok

I am exhausted. I am tired. I am weary. I am struggling. These words are hard to write, hard to see on my phone screen, hard to experience. These words are also liberating, comforting, and exhilarating. They are my words, so let me explain. 2020 came in like a flood. Our family experienced a significant…
