I met with a colleague to schedule my workshop for the professionals at her company. She said, "Sarri, the irony is that I think of you as someone who has pushed boundaries and changed things in many areas for the last 25 years. Isn't it ironic that you are doing workshops on boundaries?"
I understand exactly what she is saying.
The truth is that we do often limit ourselves with how we deal with our boundaries. Sometimes we can feel stuck or exhausted by the way we manage our boundaries.
Often boundary work may involve, ironically, defying limitations we impose on ourselves.

I learned the healing power of boundaries first with myself, then by teaching it to many others. I am the author of Transform Your Boundaries and Naming and Taming Overwhelm. My next book is on Trauma and Recovery. I am a psychotherapist with more than 3 decades of experience. But my experience has not been limited to a small room with a couch. I also ran 3 non-profit organizations for 20 years, founding 2 of those orgs and taught leadership 7 years. Making boundaries easier has become my life purpose. I believe many of our conflicts, stress, and difficulties comes from the need to develop a deeper understanding about boundaries. I have webinars and workshops to help you grow your abilities.
