I’M HERE TO HELP.
My name is Emily Levenson and I’m here to help.
‘Cause that’s what I was born to do.
Yes, really. (To both the Kris Kross reference and the helping.) As far back as I can remember, I’ve been a helper. I was THE girl people came to when they had a problem — dispensing advice and mandala coloring pages like candy.
When it came time to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up, it felt like an easy answer. I wanted to help people. Psychology, and later Social Work, were the best way I knew how to do that and embarked on a 6-year journey of schooling and internships to become a licensed therapist.
But something funny happened along the way.
I didn’t love the outlet I had chosen to do all of that helping. I was stressed out, burnt out, and in a great deal of pain. My emotional and physical health were declining rapidly, and I was feeling lost. I knew there had to be a better way to do good in the world without the toll it was taking on my life and my health.
I spent a lot of time peeling back the layers and working to improve my own health.
I began to dabble in bookbinding and set up shop on Etsy. I started blogging and connecting with people online. I changed my diet and became a holistic health coach. I quit my 9-5 job and went full-time into entrepreneurship. I got super into meditation and energy work. Slowly but surely, I began to feel myself come back to life.
When we struggled to get pregnant, I went even deeper into the depths of healing and self-care.
It has been one hell of a ride, filled with some pretty intense ups and downs.
And you know what? I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Because it has taught me more about myself than I ever imagined possible. It also brought me my daughter; my sweet, sassy, colorful, independent, laser-beam-of-joy daughter
So… that’s me. In a nutshell.
And now I want to know about you! What are you seeking more of in your life and how can I help you get there?
