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.
