Self Care 101 Teachable School

In my Teachable School you will find content and resources relevant to taking self care and various overall wellness strategies. This is where I house supplemental materials to all of my webinars. You can also take a free mini course in The Basics of Self Care. In this mini-course we will be learning how to change our thoughts about self-care to make it more doable and less stressful. If you have ever felt the self-shame of not having enough time, money, or energy to practice self-care, this course is for you! I’ll teach you how to rethink and reframe self-care in a way that makes sense in your daily life. When it comes to self-care, I think we need to work smarter, not harder. Self care shouldn’t be stressful. If you are familiar with my Groupinars on Betterhelp, this is the place to be for all of your self care 101 needs.

The Blog

Welcome to my self care 101 blog. This is where I post my thoughts, ideas, and rants about all things related to self care. As a therapist, I have witnessed so many people find a lot of guilt and shame when it comes to self care. There is so much irony in this. We should feel good about doing things to take care of ourselves. Im really committed to reshaping negative thoughts about self care. It’s kind of my soap box. My ultimate goal is to create a better, more balanced, narrative about the idea of self care.
