Emancipate Your Mind: 019: Creating Healthy Boundaries

  • by

If you struggle with people pleasing and/or codependent patterns with people you care about, it’s at least in part because you struggle with setting healthy boundaries.

So many of us were taught that not having clear boundaries was a sign of love and trust.

But actually, it’s the exact opposite.

Trusting relationships all include healthy boundaries. You cannot have a relationship where both parties feel safe without also having clear, defined boundaries and the ability to discuss what is ok and not ok with all parties involved.

If you’ve tried to set boundaries before but have been unsuccessful, this episode will walk you through the common mistakes we’ve all made and the steps to take instead to create boundaries that are clear, kind, and well communicated.

After all, boundaries are all about giving the people we care about the best chance to have healthy, trusting, and deeply connected relationships with us.

And ultimately, they are also about keeping us and those we care about safe.


I’m so excited to announce that I’m teaming up with acclaimed Washington D.C. artist, Heidi Nielson, to bring you a Self-Love Art Exploration Workshop. Join us either the evening of Thursday, April 22nd or in the afternoon on Sunday, April 25th for an online experience to deepen the relationship with your inner self through guided meditation, writing, music, and art therapy.

Tickets are $75 and include a hand-selected box of art supplies shipped directly to your door to help you create your own healing self-love collage featuring your photo. Click the link below for more information and to register. Space is limited.
