Some people enjoy optics. I’m not gonna lie, I indulge as well. However, things don’t always go as planned. This behind the scenes photo is to remind you to keep going even when the night covers you, folks wanna pop off, you can’t see through the smoke or you’re “permanently” stained. During this shot, I remember seeing fire and coughing—kids don’t try this at home—then the smoke cleared and we achieved my cover photo in the next take. I had a slight cinder burn on my arm and my dress was stained (pass the offering plate for the thrift store). Don’t take for granted these character building moments. God has gone before you to prepare. Don’t forget to smile in the midst, the devil can’t stand that. _____ #bts #tbt #tru#truth #blooper #colorbomb #poundcakeandprivatepractice™© #conversationwithaclinicianofcolor© #therapyforblackgirls #minoritymentalhealth #yesimatherapist™ #psycyourmind™ #blacklivesmatter #blackgirlmagic #blackwomanownedbusiness #notyouraveragetherapist #checkmycredentials #illtakethekidsandthedog #earnedthis #therapist #counseling #boardcertifiedcasemanager #truth #nohealthwithoutmentalhealth #maryland #dc #virginia #carefirst #marylandmedicaidprovider #dreamsdocometrue #themindhustlers™

Host your next workshop, group therapy session or professional event here. ​ The OVEN is the receptacle used to bake ideas, visions, and realities with heat.
