Are You An Empath? Take The Quiz And Learn 5 Ways To Strengthen Yourself As An Empath

I have been getting a lot of questions from patients, lately, on how to own their empath abilities as strengths, rather than weaknesses. So much so, that I’ve been inspired to write about it! If I had a coin every time I met a lovely empath soul who felt more cursed, rather than empowered, by […]
