Meet Jasmin Terrany, LMHC of Jasmin Balance

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jasmin Terrany, LMHC.

Jasmin, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Professionally I have been inspiring and healing high-profile individuals through my Skype based private practice for over a decade. I am a trained psychotherapist, a leader in my industry, published author, pubic speaker, interviewer, world-traveler and most importantly, a mommy.

The most recent chapter of my story has to do with my own mom.

Meet Betsy, the mom everyone desired. As beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside, she overflowed with unconditional love, true understanding and joy. She was a best friend, the ultimate role model, and a true parenting guru. In over a decade of private practice, a lifetime of relationships, and over 50 countries of world travel, never have I even heard of another mother who parented with such intention, dedication, clarity, wisdom and fun.

With no warning, no preparation, one sunny afternoon, she simply disappeared from this world. She was driving to meet me for lunch, and never arrived. Age 64, mile marker 64. Gone.

As I sat all alone, trying to digest this unfathomable news. I stared out the window as the sunlight kissed the sparkling ocean waves. I couldn’t believe the peace I felt, amidst the heart-wrenching pain in my soul. She was there with me. Her loving wisdom was so deeply embedded into my essence that I couldn’t tell if it was her voice or my own.

“Now is your time.” Every part of me knew. “Don’t be scared. This pain is your gift. This is your learning… You are the Mommy now.”

After the most devastating year of my life, it all began to make sense. On the first anniversary of my mother’s passing, I naturally gave birth to my own daughter. The hair-raising synchronicity of this moment, not only brought new physical life into the world, but channeled the content of my most treasured work of art:

“Becoming Mommy: A Loving Guide to What Matters Most (Even When It’s Hard)”

This book is my new chapter of life. I have visions for other books, workbooks, educational programs, children’s books, workshops, motivational events and so on.

I believe that extraordinary mothers make extraordinary people; and I am destined to help mothers access their truest strengths so they can be warriors of love for most important job there is.

Has it been a smooth road?
The sudden tragic death of my mother has elicited the most pain, strength and spirit within me.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
As a Columbia University trained psychotherapist, I work mostly with high-profile individuals who want to make their personal life as successful as their business life. I help them improve relationships, self- confidence, and body image while alleviating stress and anxiety.

I call my work “Life Therapy” because it combines traditional psychotherapy, Tony Robbins Style Life Coaching (Neurolinguistic Programming) and spiritual practices like Mindfulness and Meditation.

Over the past few years I have been maintaining a six-figure, 10 hour a week virtual business, while focusing most of my attention on raising my small children.

But recently I have committed to a new venture, of which I am extremely excited: A Mommy Movement.

In this country, there are certifications for professions as simple as florists. Yet, the most important and challenging job that exists, requires no license, certification or training. Approximately 4 million mothers give birth per year, and there is no recognized “Mommy Manual.”

Many books teach what to expect and what to do, but few focus on how to be, the psychological, emotional and spiritual foundation of the mother, which is truly the basis for all experiences. Although mothers feel the truest, purest love for their children, the stress and challenges of motherhood often distract them from it.

My upcoming book, “Becoming Mommy: A Loving Guide to What Matters Most (Even when it’s Hard) is written from my perspective as new, vulnerable mother and trained psychotherapist, I summarize the 14 core principles of my own extraordinary mother. Through engaging stories and examples, outlined lessons and chapter overviews, new mothers can quickly and deeply receive the golden nuggets of parenthood.

Most recently, I co-authored the bestselling book “Adventures in Manifesting: Love and Oneness,” with Marianne Williamson, Danielle Laporte, and Lisa McCourt. I also have another pending unpublished draft entitled “Be Your Own Therapist: A Simple Road Map to Heal Your Heart & Improve Your Life.” My articles and content have been featured on sites such as Yahoo! News, Greatist, The Daily Love, TinyBuddha, MindBodyGreen, Digital Journal, Health Theater, Yoga Girl Revolution, Savor the Success, Careers in Psychology, and Living Meditation.

I have been interviewed by Good Morning America, NBC, ABC and CBS on the topics of parenting and psychology. I host my own interview series, and have interviewed a plethora of public figures, including Sundance Film Winner Nate Parker, as well as actors Ian Ziering, Austin Stowell and Zen Habit’s Leo Babauta… Additionally, I star in a myriad of self-help videos on my YouTube channel garnishing over 100,000 views, with over 10,000 followers on my combined social media platform. As a keynote speaker, I have spoken to hundreds of attendees at various events, including the Women’s Success Summit, Miami’s largest two-day summit for professional women.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I think the hardest part about starting out in my industry is that you spend a lot of time specializing in your craft, you are excited to go share your skills but then you have to find people who want what you have to offer!

I found it most challenging to learn about marketing and business when it wasn’t of real interest to me. I decided that since personal growth is my passion, it was time to grow in those areas too. I think Miami is as good of a place as any to do networking and meet other entrepreneurs in the field.

      Jasmin went to primary school with my daughter. She was always very intelligent and sweet. And yes, she had about the best mother any daughter could want. Losing her was such a tragedy. Best of luck to you Jasmin. I’m sure that Sindy wishes you the best as well.
