For this episode of Hard Beautiful Journey, I am elated to finally introduce you to someone who has not just helped me through the darkness but has guided me to the light, my psychologist and friend Jenna Fortinski. Jenna is the creator of Simply Counselling Services, a therapy practice whose mission is to help maintain your mental health through family counselling, one-on-one, and group therapy.
With massive help from Jenna, I was able to learn how to create space for myself by taking away the biggest stressor in my life, my job. Though it was a tough decision to make, I took a month and a half off from work and what I learned from myself surprised even me. Using the tools that Jenna gave me, I discovered myself, and I wanted to take this opportunity to present them to whoever may need them. In this episode, Jenna explains her box analogy and shares advice on managing anxiety through gratitude, kindness, and simplicity.
