Jasmin Terrany grew up in a home that her friends lovingly called “Willy Wonka’s Factory.” Her mother decorated every inch of the home, from the mailbox to the kitchen cabinets, in hearts and pastel colors. The unique and playful decor reflected her mother’s dedication to live from love, and to enjoy life to the fullest.
While she was grateful for her upbringing, Jasmin realized as a young adult that because of her happy and loving surroundings, she didn’t know what to do with her pain. In a world where so many had a reason to suffer, she felt guilty when she struggled. This led to challenges with dating, body-image, food, exercise, and career.
Committed to living an extraordinary life, Jasmin began attending her own weekly therapy appointments. She confronted her feelings and was able to heal. Therapy helped Jasmin release body image issues and taught her how to manifest a loving marriage. As she mastered her own inner experience, she realized she was destined to help others do the same.
As a result, Jasmin got two masters degrees from Columbia University to become a therapist, starting her own private practice in 2007. Due to her mother’s guidance, Jasmin has been meditating since childhood; so rather than practice traditional psychotherapy, she created Life Therapy™, a combination of Psychotherapy & Coaching + Mindfulness & Meditation.
Life threw Jasmin a curveball as a tragedy occurred in January 2015, when her mother was killed in a car accident.
She spent the next year trying to manage her devastated father, raise a one-year-old son, maintain a healthy marriage and run her private practice. As the first anniversary of her mother’s death arrived, Jasmin went into labor three weeks early with her second child. In a matter of hours, the day that should have brought grief and pain became one of the most divine.
Her daughter was born on the anniversary of her mother’s death.
This moment brought her life greater peace and purpose. Inspired by her own healing journey, Jasmin wrote her book, Extraordinary Mommy: A Loving Guide to the Most Important Job There Is. In this book, she reflects on her loving childhood, through her journey into motherhood. Through entertaining stories, and cliff-notes style she summarizes the ten practices that matter most for any mother.
