You've heard the term- maybe you even feel you've been victim of gaslighting at some point in your life- and chances are you're right! BUT do you know exactly what those behaviors can look like in a relationship?

This graphic shows some of the behaviors commonly used during gaslighting attempts!



She/He/They. Pronouns are a way of identifying who you are and sharing a piece of yourself with the world. Today, we want to celebrate your pronouns and who you are. Happy International Pronouns Day. 🏳‍🌈

Struggle with balancing self care with financial commitments?

⬇️⬇️ Here are a few ideas on how to take care of yourself on a budget 👏🏼


We've all heard that term "people pleaser" or maybe you've even called yourself that a time or two. But how did that happen? We aren't born pleasing others, it's something developed throughout our life time for various reasons.

Does that mean that once you are a "people pelaser" you're stuck with that title your entire life? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Identifying the root of the behavior and then working to address that cause can help you be a "people pleaser in recovery." 💫

Forge Counseling Collective is SO EXCITED to welcome Shane Hartman to team! Shane practices from our Commerce City office, bringing in experience with IFS, EMDR, and is a certified addictions specialist. Shane works with teens and adults looking for individual therapy. Take a peek at the words from Shane below!

“Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.” – Alan Watts. Sounds pretty pointless and dumb to me (and probably to dentists everywhere). Attempting to work on yourself alone only takes you so far and really drags out the Suffer-Fest. That’s what therapy is all about; an unbiased, collaborative relationship, preferably with someone who actually gives a s**t (me, hi), which can help you to understand and accept yourself fully.

Spoiler alert: Addiction, codependence, depression/anxiety, perfectionism, material striving, control issues, and self-criticism etc. are behaviors—or parts of you—that serve a purpose. In getting to know these parts, they will have less power to screw up your life and you will be more connected to your true Self (spiritual woo-woo stuff).

I would’ve never become a therapist if I hadn't experienced the hell of addiction firsthand. Being entirely humbled by booze forced me to ask for help, which led to a spiritual transformation and dedicating my life to the service of others. I’ll work with anyone, as I believe therapy is all about the right relationship. And I really enjoy working with weirdoes and people that struggle fitting into boxes. I mean therapy has got to be better than the dentist, right?
