Welcoming the Robyn Broadus Therapy blog

This blog has certainly changed from the time I started it 7 years ago! I’d like to share with you the story of how it began, then introduce you to what it is now:

I began this blog in 2015, as a creative way to stay connected with family and friends while I worked in the UK. Contextually, it’s important to note that this was four years after I had experienced a single-incident medical trauma—in a season where I wasn’t really aware of how greatly the trauma had emotionally impacted me. It was also a season where I was trying on different jobs and intentionally trying to figure out my place in this world. I noticed that writing was peace-giving (and great self-care) for me; so I continued writing. Many of the posts in the first few years had to do with having boldness and courage, believing in yourself, and wellness tips I had learned.

Over the years, I kept healing. I, also, kept blogging. Additionally, I got married, graduated with my MS in Marital and Family Therapy, had 2 kids, and became licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist.

My audience has shifted, and my purpose has naturally become more focused as more life and experiences have happened. Now I write especially to people who find themselves wanting or needing encouragement, empowerment, inspiration, or refreshment. Most posts contain self-care tips –about self-compassion, self-love, mindfulness, or brain health. I also have a category called “Truths” which is a place to be kindly reminded about who you are—regardless of what has happened to you, what you have, what you do, or what other people say about you. Some of the truths are specifically for parents—to encourage all parents in this life-long journey commitment.

I recently changed the name from the “Joy” blog to the “Robyn Broadus Therapy” blog, as this is the name of my private practice—and the themes of these posts are an educational extension of some things I hope to encourage during sessions.*

This site also oozes with the unique things that make me, me: my positivity, joy, and wholehearted desire to encourage and lift up others. Life can be so hard. My deep desire is that this can be a space to be refreshed and inspired.

It’s my pleasure to write (and also make videos). I hope you will pause for a moment, and be able to receive. You are loved, accepted, and free. May we believe that, live into that and be able to generously love ourselves and others because of that. Welcome again.



*Even though I am an LMFT, the content on this blog is not a substitute for individual therapy nor is it meant to convey specific psychological advice. Rather, it is for educational purposes only.
