Has your self-care become non-negotiable lately? Join myself and the creator of the Seek the Joy Podcast, Sydney Weiss, as we discuss all things prioritizing self-care and not allowing guilt to get in the way.

What misconceptions do you have about self-care? In the latest episode of the Trust & Thrive podcast, host Tara Mont and I discuss what self-care is (and what it isn’t), toxic positivity, self-care as a privilege and so much more!

We were honored to be speak at the 2021 Black Maternal Health Summit, hosted by the Georgia Chapter of Postpartum International!

Learn the basics of postpartum depression & anxiety, how to engage Black Men in the postpartum period, and tips to maintain mental wellness during a pandemic while pregnant or postpartum.

Do you consider your self-care to be a personal investment? I loved breaking this down with the host of The Yellow Room podcast, Nika Hanson, for her self-care series!

LeNaya Smith-Crawford discussed one of the most challenging self-love topics out there — how to show yourself self-love while you’re healing. If you’ve been having trouble showing up for yourself lately, I have a strong feeling that this chat is just what you’re looking for.

To break down how to love ourselves more, flaws and all, we talked to the perfectionist therapist herself, the amazing Bianca Hughes, LPC! Bianca is the owner of the Authentically Be You Counseling, creator of the Authentic Wednesdays podcast and a true expert on how to overcome the pressure of being perfect.

Karlyn Benn, Licensed Professional Counselor, Body Love Coach and the owner of Inspyre You discussed all things Body Positivity, Body Acceptance and how to show your body the love it deserves.
