What up IG!👊🏼💥 I am the dude behind Dude Therapy. As I look to grow and expand on what Dude Therapy will be, I wanted to introduce myself and put a face and name behind what I do.
My name is Michael. I’m a single dad. I failed at marriage. I’m a business owner who has failed at business. I’ve been through a lot. I’m raising daughters in this crazy world. I love my kids, I love my family, and I’m grateful for all that I truly have in my life. I have been blessed with an amazing family and an overall positive outlook. Life is good.
I’ve dealt with abuse. I’ve dealt with addiction. I’ve dealt with depression. Major depression. I’ve dealt with anxiety. I’ve had moments in my life where I couldn’t function and felt like life was caving in on me. I’ve felt unworthy of relationships, love, and connection. I’ve been a mess. I know what that feels like. Trust me, I get it.
Life isn’t fair. That’s one lesson I’ve learned. I’m glad life isn’t fair. I used to complain about all my shit. I was the best at playing the victim and I’ve had every excuse under the sun to just sit back and blame everyone. Blame my abuser, blame life, blame God, blame whoever! Anyone but me! Built in excuses will kill you.
I know people have had it worse....way worse than me. I know that everyone out there is dealing with their own personal demons. I know that life isn’t easy and we all have our “shit” to overcome.
I hope that what I have shared and what I share moving forward can be a help to you in some small way. I hope that as we learn to laugh and realize that WE ALL STRUGGLE, that we can break stigmas and grow to be the healthiest version of ourselves.
Change and healing is not easy. It’s a never ending process. It’s a daily part of life. There is light at the end of the tunnel. There is hope no matter what you have gone through. Stop making excuses. Stop playing the victim. We got this!
Life motto: “Laugh through the shit”
If you’ve ever been to the Joyce Wellness office, you know Savannah. She is the first caring voice heard by patients, the kind face that greets you, and the person who sorts through complicated insurance reimbursement. What most of you don’t know, is that she is also an amazing healer. While taking a sabbatical from work to help her grandmother recover from cancer, Savannah also trained as a Reiki master. Over the last year she has been honing her craft, and let me tell you, her hands are POWERFUL! Within minutes of my first session with her I was in the deepest most restful sleep of my life. Savannah is now offering discounted reiki sessions coupled with acupuncture, $30 for 30 minutes. Click link in bio to schedule. ✨ #reiki#energymedicine#feelinggood#selfcare#fillyourcupfirst
