We had the good fortune of connecting with Cheron Crouch and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cheron, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
My favorite quote is “All behavior is a form of communication.” I like this quote because it forces me to be more curious and aware about how and what my behavior communicates about how I am thinking and feeling.

If you think about it, the way we behave is an expression of our thoughts, feelings and needs. Our behavior is often more accurate than our words.

I desire to be in alignment with my thoughts and feelings to ensure that my behavior and responses accurately depict my beliefs, values, and personality and how I am feeling. When my actions are not in tune with my thoughts (values, belief system) then there is a disconnect that I have to address.

This quote encourages me to be accountable for understanding my own needs. This is important for me as I hold many roles as a mom, daughter, business owner and role model to name a few. When I am not in alignment my behavior “tattles” on me. It is easy for me to recognize when am overworked because my behavior communicates exhaustion ( I get snappy!).

In addition, to using this quote for my personal use, I also use this quote to challenge my clients when their behavior/responses in therapy are not aligned with their stated goal for their life..

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
