F*CK SHAME. F*CK ANXIETY.
And also F*CK TRAUMA.
Anyone else feeling this way recently? Current events have you feeling the feels? Are you more tearful or sad than usual? Scared? Angry? Helpless or hopeless? If so, you’re not alone.
Hi, Hello, Welcome. I’m Ani, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a body trust strategist, and the ultimate shame destroyer.
Let’s be honest, between the ongoing pandemic, quarantine fatigue, racial and political unrest – shit’s been real.
Many policies have been especially challenging to members of oppressed groups, as well as those with trauma histories.
Folks who had chaotic childhoods and/or abusive relationships seem especially prone to toxic shame.
Shame breeds in isolation.
Connection with others is the antidote to shame.
“New Year, New You” statements are in full bloom as 2021 starts.
Let’s slay those shame dragons together!
Living in a time of toxic stress takes a toll.
It feels scary and unstable.
So come learn how to stay grounded and connected in an increasingly stressful time in my new eight week workshop:
"The F*ck Shame Group"
A new ONLINE group for adults looking to tackle their hurts head-on, no BS.
This group is especially great for:

What to expect?
- A shared community who ‘gets’ it
- A protected place to share experiences
- Processing of emotions and feelings

** You choose how much or how little you share or participate **
