Presented by: Ilana Zivkovich, LCSW, LCDC, CDWF

Shame. Vulnerability. Authenticity.
Little words packed full of meaning and relevance. Shame is something that many of us, and many of our clients, try desperately to avoid. What do these attempts at avoidance look like? How do they affect our sense of self? Our ability to engage in meaningful relationships? Our overall wellbeing? What could life look like if we let our guard down and learned to truly “Show Up, Be Seen, and Live Brave?”
