One of the many things I appreciate about my private practice schedule is I can watch lots and lots of Olympics. Just watched history as these Nigerian woman finished their country’s first Olympic event in bobsled, and then were immediately followed by the first Jamaican women’s bobsled team completing their runs. Both teams of women spoke about their dreams not of winnings but of inspiring people back home to dream big and see possibilities. Truly inspirational. I used to dream of winning a gold medal- and followed up by sitting on my bum. Love the passion and grit of competing to just do it and inspire others. #nigerianbobsledteam #jamaicanbobsledteam #bobsled #girlpower #womenpower #history #herstory #firsts #inspiration #grit #green #passion #whoisnext #olympics #power #counselingwithtara @counselingwithtara #Repost @summitsportpsych

Lying on the couch- how Freudian -glancing up at nothing that’s really something. Beauty of light, of light and dark. I talk with clients about lessening black and white thinking, and instead looking for the gray, the grey. And it’s really shades of grey or gray along a spectrum. Change your perspective and see the nuances. #shadesofgrey #lookup #ceiling #artiseverywhere #mindset #perspective #viewpoint #changeyourmind #lightanddark #therapy #counseling #itsthelittlethings #wednesdaywisdom #counselingwithtara #dmv @counselingwithtara #nofilter

I’ll admit I wasn’t a fan of a 70 degree day in Northern Virginia In February. But the reality is I sure did enjoy the drive to work today with the moon roof open! Still, I miss winter. #enjoytheride #moonroof #sunroof #sunnyday #february #tuesday #itsthelittlethings #commute #drive #northernvirginia #dmv #counselorlife #enjoythejoy #counselingwithtara #bliss @counselingwithtara

Love when I discover a new therapy tool that works well with kiddos and adults. The drawings are fun prompts to match the sentence completions... usually. Sometimes the cartoons seemingly have nothing to do with the words! Just another opportunity to explore meaning. #therapy #toys #play #creative #cards #cartoons #playtherapy #therapy #counseling #games #thoughts #feelings #emotions #counselingwithtara #dmv @counselingwithtara #brightspot #fun

One of the great things about being a therapist is that I can see indulge my inner child. The toys aren’t just for the kiddos with whom I work. Adults gravitate to these characters and toys too. Who can’t relate to a “which Charlie Brown character are you” question? Thinking outside of your own narrative can be refreshing and empowering - and relatable. #charliebrown #peanuts #neville #thomasthetankengine #lunalovegood #harrypotter #cats #play #playtherapy #innerchild #funkopop #whichcharacterareyou #counselingwithtara #dmv @counselingwithtara #whysoserious #relatable #fun

It’s a quiet, pretty afternoon of big snowflakes falling to no real avail. Enjoying the peacefulness of the neighborhood with what seems like everyone tucked away. #snowday #proofofsnow #snowflakes #missingwinter #peaceandquiet #artiseverywhere #solitude #itsthelittlethings #counselingwithtara @counselingwithtara #dmv #grace #snowfalling #meditative

If you know me, you know it’s true. Big books, little books, picture book. My office used to have 2 towering bookshelves in it. I believe my therapy related books now outnumber all the other kinds of books I own or borrow from the library. I love to read! The car decal caught my eye first but when I doubled back for the photo, I loved that it was positioned next to the model. Whatever you do today, expand your mind and heart and focus on where you are, who you are with, and what you want. And that could simply be at home, by yourself, with a good classic book or a good trashy novel. #books #focus #reading #growing #ilikebigbooksandicannotlie #ravenclaw #booknerd #counselorlife #selfcaresaturday #counselingwithtara @counselingwithtara #dmv

Ominous clouds in the neighborhood but framed with bright light. Although I prefer sunny, rainy days, there is a quiet beauty to gray ones where there are breaks to rain. Seems like a fitting metaphor to how life works. Looking for the quiet beauty even in the darkest places. #ominousclouds #quietbeauty #darkandlight #rainydays #graydays #lighteveninthedarkestplaces #arlingtonva #counselingwithtara @counselingwithtara #dmv #arteverywhere #expressivearts

Not all clients love Harry Potter like I do, but when they do... how cool is this little gift?! Taking notes in session is way more fun with my HP pen. #harrypotter #gryffindor #ravenclaw

Last night’s set up for a special Galentine’s Day Group. Various gummies and chocolates, obligatory post it notes- in Valentine’s Day colors -and a bag of fun prompts. Best laid plans -and one of the challenges of running groups- not enough confirmed members made it to the session to run it. We’re back on our regular group schedule next week... sadly no candy will be on hand. #galentinesday #valentinesday #grouptherapy #supportgroup #womensupportingwomen #talktherapy #connection #empowerment #postits #stickynotes #love #candyhearts #bestlaidplans #counselingwithtara @counselingwithtara

Rough day for the PipNev household. But we have each other. Putting on a festive face for work and loving my one and only - Neville. #valentinesday #missingpippin #mycatneville #pipnev #foreverpipnev #myheartisfull #cattherapy #loveandloss #lovewins #counselingwithtara @counselingwithtara #howcuteisthis #catsofinstagram

My heart broke today but it’s still filled with so much love for this little man. Found out on Monday that Pippin had inoperable lung cancer. Spend some quality time together cuddling and eating tuna, even got in one last bully of his brother Neville. I never knew how much joy a little furball could bring until Pip came into my life. So many wonderful memories. So soft, so handsome, so chirpy and opinionated. Just seeing him looking out the window for me every day just brought a grin to my face and joy to my heart. Truly can’t imagine what it will be like without him going to sleep tonight or waking up tomorrow morning. We had a great run, my precious. You are so loved and you are already so missed. Words can’t express. Devestated. But also so grateful for the time we had together. Only fitting to let you go on this day of love. “Be at peace son of Gondor. They will look for his coming from the white tower, but he will not return.” #heartbreak #fulloflove #mycatpippin #pipnev #nevilleisstillhere #wehadagreatrun #gratefulforourtimetogether #cancersucks #myheart #catsofinstagram #themostbeautifuleyes #thesoftestfur #counselingwithtara @counselingwithtara
