the first step to working with your emotions!

Hi! I’m Anchen Texter, Licensed Dynamic Emotional Integration® Trainer and Consultant, and I’m here to help you learn about yourself, your boundaries, and how to listen to your emotions so that you always have access to the wisdom within yourself.

I specialize in teaching people about boundaries, self care, and preventing burnout. I help you learn who you are and what is important to you, and how to communicate that from a place of strength and wholeness within yourself so that you can live life in the moment, rather than always on the sidelines.

This work is based on the work of Karla McLaren, M.Ed., including her books The Language of Emotions and The Art of Empathy. I work with the understanding that every emotion is there for a reason, and contains a message for us, once we learn how to listen.

Are you ready to listen to your emotions?

You may be ready for an Emotion Consultation

Sometimes, despite all the work you do and the information you have, your emotions just don't make sense to you. An emotion consultation with Anchen gives you an educated outside perspective on your emotions, and concepts and/or practices to help you work with and understand what your emotions are trying to tell you. 

As a consultant, Anchen specializes in helping you learn to set boundaries, differentiate between unhealthy and healthy shame, and establish nourishing self-care and emotion-regulation activities and practices. 

She helps you learn to set boundaries by working with your healthy anger, and using all of your emotions to support the boundaries you choose to set.

  • You may benefit from working with Anchen around boundaries if you feel like you have to say yes to everything (or feel like you can't say no), if your life seems chaotic, or you feel like you are awash in circumstances outside of your control, and you ask yourself, "how did I get here?"

Anchen helps you learn to differentiate between unhealthy and healthy shame with reflective exercises and practices you can use in the moment. She offers practices to help you establish conscious contracts with healthy shame, which can change how you interact with yourself and the world around you.

  • You may benefit from working with shame if you feel like you never live up to your expectations or often feel disappointed, if you self-silence or keep yourself on the sidelines, or if you can't seem to stop doing certain behaviors even if you want to.

Having go-to self-care activities and practices is something that you may not consciously think about, but which can be the difference between feeling like you're thriving, or just getting by. Anchen can help you identify and integrate regular rejuvenation practices that nurture and replenish you, so that you can keep going deeper in your journey of emotional awareness, and feel more alive in your daily life.

  • You may benefit from consciously working with your self-care activities and practices if you always put yourself and your needs last, or if you don't know what feels nourishing and rejuvenating even when you do have time to yourself.

Emotion-regulation is shorthand for "doing activities or practices that help you feel centered and in touch with the values that are important to you." Anchen can help you identify the emotions you're feeling, and listen for the messages they have for you. She can introduce some activities and practices that may help you regulate your emotions, so that you can be the one in charge of how you respond to your emotions. 

  • You may benefit from working consciously with emotion-regulation activities and practices if you have a hard time down-regulating from intense emotions, or if you try to avoid feeling certain emotions with distracting behaviors like binge-watching Netflix or stress-eating.
