Bio pic.jpg

Mental health is an essential component to our overall health.

Too often it’s ignored as we focus only on the physical symptoms.

However, the two are inextricably linked.

The idea of self-care is a non-negotiable. In fact, it’s not selfish. It’s complete sanity.

Tune in to this episode to hear more about Natalie’s background in clinical and health psychology, the importance of daily self-care in maintaining your health and sanity and how to navigate the system and advocate for your mental health needs.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The importance of radical self-care in maintaining and improving your overall health

  • How to navigate and seek out mental health care and demystifying the stigma

  • How to find the right match for you in a mental health provider and insight-oriented vs. action-oriented therapies

  • The importance of the mind-body connection in healing trauma and how this relationship can no longer be ignored
