WELCOME to “Orange Walk” Blog. Kind of an odd name for a blog— you are probably thinking. I fell in love with this place and its name from my trip to Belize back in 2018 with my family. Orange Walk is a historical town in Belize, Central America, influenced by early Mexican refugees who settled there to make a life after the war of the Castes between the Mayan and British forces. A place where they began to renegotiate their lives and have a voice. As a psychotherapist, I am usually trying to find the meaning behind something—so yes, this history spoke to me! “Orange Walk” blog is a space for women, support, and community. You probably stumbled upon this page. Great!
Too often, as women, we do not use our voice in support of ourselves or that of each other. The message historically and culturally is that our voice does not matter or simply invalid. This blog is about sharing truthfully and professionally on various topics centered around self-discovery, selfcare, and parenting.
This invaluable discovery of our unique voice is the impetus, I believe, for understanding and realizations, about ourselves, leading to practical ways for self-development, action, and support of other women—thus a “real” caring and connective community. Yes, this is still possible in the 21 Century. So, what can you expect from me? I am glad you asked. Posts packed with fun, facts, and education on the 5th of every month. Staying true to “My Why” everyday— Enriching and Empower Women!
