Happy Friday! Cuddle time—get yourself a hug today and hold it longer! Gift yourself the benefits of a dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin boost. 10 second hugs can help the body fight infections, ease depression, and lessen tiredness. 20 second hugs reduce the harmful effects of stress, relieves blood pressure, and ensures a healthy heart. #hugs #brainboost #healthbenefits

Hi Everyone! Just an update /introduction for you all as there has been some shifts in my roles. My name is Kate and I’ve been an OT since 1997. I became self employed in 2003 with AboutPlay therapy. I started working in children’s homes, then rented out spaces from other practitioners until 2011. During this period of time, I had 3 children, and a deep spiritual re-awakening. In 2011, I joined up with Lauren @positivity484 to open Healthy Foundations, and we began to work in manifesting a conscious practice, incorporating intuitive and holistic practices. In 2014 I opened the gym where I currently operate out of in Grant Park. I continued deepening my intuitive practices and built a team of therapists who are also intuitive and have similar interests. In 2017, after accumulating much holistic training in energetic practices, including becoming a Reiki Master, I opened The Energetic Heart energy practice. Both practices have grown, and I now divide my time equally between the two. I continue to be very passionate about helping children and families, as well as helping people in energetic practices. My role as a supporter/guide/healer is THE constant in my work. Both of my practices are in Metro Atlanta, within 3 miles of each other. I feel so lucky to be able to serve the community in these ways. If you, your child, or your family is struggling, help is available. If it’s not with me, know that there are SEVERAL paths to healing. 💗#healing #occupationaltherapy #reiki #auriclightalchemy #aboutplaytherapy #theenergeticheart @fullcircleatl

We strive to create a safe space for our children in our gym. We do a lot of that behind the scenes, and know that our reactions to a child’s behavior can serve as a model for parents. We recently created this sign to explicitly ask parents to be mindful of how they are carrying themselves through our door. This is certainly not meant to be a whitewashing of emotions—at AboutPlay, we realize that the healthy expression of a range of emotions is necessary for growth. This is just meant to create a conscious pause. How am I feeling? Can my stress, anger, fear, etc. be influencing my child? Chances are, yes. Especially with children with sensory processing differences. Especially. We advocate that if you are tired, get more rest. Go for a walk. Connect with nature. Meditate. Talk to a therapist. I am sending you all love and strength. Thank you for being conscious, and for filling up your well as needed. #emotions #sensitivity #sensoryprocessing #feelingthefeelings #selfcheck #selfcare

Good old tactile play! Simply combining cornstarch and water can get you oozy heaps of tactile play, which we all need a lot of right now. Why? Because our tactile systems are compromised during this pandemic. So go ahead and get messy! #aboutplaytherapy #tactile #tactileplay #occupationaltherapy #oobleck

A very big and hearty thanks to all the the clients of AboutPlay and The Energetic Heart! We value and appreciate your trust in us, and are honored to continue to serve our community. Although saddened at the closing of our Little Five Points location, we look forward to opening a new location for our adult wellness services, when the time is right. In the meantime, in-person sessions are happening at our Grant Park location for children and families, and Zoom and in-person sessions are still available for adult wellness. We are taking many precautions during this sensitive time. #occupationaltherapy #occupationaltherapyclinic #occupationaltherapystudio #sensorygym #wellness #holistichealth #holisticservices #newbeginnings

Challenge accepted. @protosk I have had a long, reflective period this year, during shelter-in-place, social distancing, and modification of all aspects of work and home life staying at home during the global pandemic. How do I keep my family safe? How do I be a good partner and mother when I’m afraid and tired? How do I operate with integrity as a therapist? I have been rattled to my core over my place (and complacency) in this world as a white woman amidst the horrors we have continued to witness of unspeakable crimes against our black and brown brothers and sisters. When have I not used my privilege to rise up and support others? Is giving money enough (since I have chosen not to personally attend large protests at this time because of the pandemic)? Have I listened enough, stood up enough? How can I continue to deepen and expand my spiritual practice in service to my own healing, but also the healing of others? How do I stay grounded? I do not claim to know all of the answers at this time. I am still doing my work. I am listening. I am striving to stay in the present moment as opposed to lamenting the past, or swirling in a future that seems more and more uncertain every day. Breathing. Allowing. Feeling. Releasing. Grounding. I feel incredibly lucky to be supported by many women, both alive, and my ancestors who support me from beyond. Thank you to all of my sisters who have shaped my life and who I have become. Let us honor the divine feminine as we rise. #challengeaccepted #womensupportingwomen #divinefeminine

Strange times. We could not have foreseen this, although there are many folks saying that the writing has been on the wall for some time now. Nonetheless, here we are. At home. Many of us continuing to shelter-in-place, or at the very least (and hopefully), operating in some socially-altered capacit...
