We've all drank the self care Kool-Aid. 

We've spent time, energy and MONEY on the diets, exercise programs, creams, pills, gadgets, gummies, meditation apps, planners, and beauty products, expecting to be rewarded with a sense of fulfillment from practicing "self care".

But, instead, we feel like a failure because we're still a hot mess, despite our investments. 

Here's the thing... While I'm not against any of this "self care" stuff, they're not exactly scratching the itch.

They're not addressing your REAL needs.

Creative self care does.

Creative self care helps you recognize what your mind, body, and mother-lovin' soul ACTUALLY need.

It teaches you how to approach your wellness with curiosity, confidence, and compassion.

It teaches you how to listen to your body and intuition, and TRUST the messages you receive. 

Creative self care helps you develop the skills needed to keep up with your ever-changing body, in this ever-evolving world

It helps you unlearn and let go of the bullshit that no longer serves you. 

And, as an added bonus, being creative with your self care is a big F*CK-YOU to capitalism, white supremacy and the patriarchy - who have been trying dictate how we present our bodies, spend our time, and feel about ourselves for far too long.

Our complicated relationship with "self care" stems from the complicated relationship we have with our selves. 

And everyBODY deserves to feel safe, healthy and empowered. Even YOUR body.

Here's how I'm helping folks learn how to be creative with their self care so they can become confident, capable, self care ninja warriors. 

I'm making the most of the internet.

I host a blog and podcast (Unlocking Wellness) where we learn how to develop an empowering mindset, expand our self awareness, and increase our body consciousness.

We also learn about the multiple aspects of self, and explore new ways of caring for the mind, body and soul.

I'm also on Instagram, Facebook and TikTok, where I sprinkle helpful creative self care nuggets. 

Imagine a place where everyBODY belongs.

I host an incredible community of allies and advocates that promotes safety, health and wellness for ALL.

We're inspiring and supporting one another as we strengthen ourselves individually, and amplifying our power collectively.

When you join our community (The Dream Team), you can gain benefits such as:

  • An invitation to my private Facebook group
  • Bonus blog & podcast content
  • Creative self care tools & tutorials
  • The Inspiration Station "App"
  • My Creative Self Care Zine
  • Care packages in the mail!

But the best part about becoming a member is knowing that a portion of your membership funds will be donated to grassroots organizations that are aiding those most in need.

Memberships are funded through Patreon and start at just $3!



It's one thing to think about creative self care. It's another to follow through. 

If you've been on this whole self care journey for a while, but still feel like you're stuck, it's time to ask for help.

Mentoring will help you figure out your obstacles, discover your true wellness needs, explore self care routines that feel effective, fulfilling and authentic, and help you make a sustainable plan for the future.

If you're ready to take the next step, I'd love to tell you more!
