Hi, I'm Tyndal
I’m an old soul, a listener, and a life-long learner that values honesty and authenticity.
I’m a Texan, a dog mom, a wife and a feminist.
I’m an IFS therapist, educator, advocate, and writer.
I started on the path to become a therapist because I wanted to spend my life helping others. While I found that path, I also accidentally stumbled upon 10 years of finding compassion for myself.
I began as a chronic "self-improver"... always achieving, always striving, always trying so hard to be a "better" human.
Then something shifted. The people in my life didn't want me to be "better". They wanted me to give myself grace. They wanted me to slow down. They wanted me to see my goodness was inherent, not earned. They wanted me to see that I was worthy of care and love exactly as I was. They wanted me to see in myself what I saw so clearly in others.
So, I tried. For them, at first. And then for me. And I watched my life change. My world became a better place to be.
As I continued to work with other women while also doing my own work, I came to see so clearly how the world becomes a better place when women learn to value themselves; all parts of themselves, not just the parts we have been praised for.
So, I started writing about my experiences and women began to connect with me from all over the world because my words were resonating.
I fell in love with spreading the news about what I had learned over the last decade not only in my work with clients and students but also into conversations with other women, on social media, on podcasts, and in the media.
I left the traditional path that was laid out for me to live out the same values I help other women rediscover for themselves: authenticity, freedom, love over fear, empowerment and peace.
When I’m not working in my little home office with my pups and chatting about all things women’s mental health, you can find me sipping coffee or cabernet in the Texas Hill Country likely tapping my foot to some live music or curled up in a weighted blanket by candlelight with my crew.
I’m so glad you found your way here. I’m excited that you, too, are looking for deeper ways of understanding yourself. You deserve it. We all do.
