Hello! I'm Jessica Kiesler, a psychotherapist, relationship and addiction expert, and creator of the VisibleU™ system.
I help busy adults carve out space for happier and more mindful relationships.
Do you feel like you're living in one of two extremes: either on-autopilot ... mildly checked-out while you meet all the demands of work, family and adulting ... or on-edge when you really just want to relax and connect with those you love.
You've heard mindfulness could help. Maybe you've tried a meditation app or yoga?
But here's the thing ... mindful and loving connection with partners, children, family & friends can't happen if there's not emotional space for it.
When you're stressed in a bigger more chronic way, meditation or gratitude lists are going to feel inauthentic and unhelpful. I learned that from personal experience! I've always been a rather driven person who yearns to contribute in big ways. But years ago I wasn't so great at being compassionate with myself. So I began to feel more irritable and unfulfilled than I was willing to tolerate.
Mindfulness seemed like a good answer. But meditation wasn't doing enough throughout the day when I wanted to be more patient, calm and present to the good moments in life. I needed more emotional space to be mindful and connectable ... that's why I created a system of micro-mindfulness strategies you can use in your relationships.
