Tiffany decided it was her choice to either assimilate to negative societal norms or liberate herself and embrace her mental “illness”. Through her journey of self-reflection and mindfulness meditations, she transformed a stigma filled disabling thought process to enabling thoughts of endless possibilities, moving from “I can’t”, to “I will”.
Through this quick read, she takes you into her life as she sends a profound message to everyone who was ever told that mental illness is a limitation. She dismantles this negative thought process by demonstrating how a shift in her belief system, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), gave her abilities beyond her imagination. -Monica Sampson, LMSW
