Session 77: The Truth About Self Care

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

In today’s episode we talk all about the truth about self-care.  For this conversation I was joined by Maria Davis-Pierre, LMHC. Maria and I chatted all about what self care actually is, how self care has been commercialized, why it’s so important for us to practice self care as Black women, and of course she shared her favorite resources to help you develop your own self care plan.
