Growing up, there weren’t many discussions in school or at home on self care or why this is so important!

It wasn’t until graduate school when I first heard the term “self-care.” 

By this time, I was a full time student, mother and employee just trying to survive my responsibilities. 

Shortly after graduate school, I quickly realized how my own lack of self care was leading me to burnout, fatigue and depression.

I learned many therapeutic skills in school on how to change negative thoughts, however, I still found myself struggling to find energy and motivation.

I continued to educate myself on other factors that influence mental health such as nutrition, sleeping patterns and daily exercise.

A Growing Practice

Teaching Self Care Practices

Making Mental Health A Priority:

I adapted many of these skills into my own life and was able to re-energize myself and have continued to do so over the past eight years. 

Today, I am fully licensed, raising three children, building my own practice and more energized than ever before!

Our goal at Therapeutic Self Care is to teach simple self care skills that you can use daily to keep your mental health a priority.

“There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.”
