Needy 20: On Tending with Carrie Cox & Tanya Levy

Today’s very special episode features two brilliant women who I have been honored to work with over the last two years, Tanya Levy and Carrie Cox. During the interview, Tanya and Carrie share fantastic examples and real life anecdotes of how they care for themselves as they navigate their daily lives. From motherhood to boundary setting to honoring the creative process, this conversation highlights the transformation, ease, and messiness that happens when you begin prioritizing your own care and making space for yourself in your life.

Tune in to hear us explore…

  • Motherhood, boundaries, and having conversation about needs with our children
  • Relaxing your expectations and allowing your needs to guide you
  • The magic and power of devoting yourself to being present instead of perfect
  • Healing your relationship with your inner critic
