Her new book Real Self Care: Powerful Practices to Nourish Yourself From the Inside Out is out now in all book stores online and in-store, a paradigm-shifting program for practicing real self-care that will empower, uplift, and maybe even start a revolution.

She has spent thousands of hours taking care of women struggling with burnout, despair, depression, and anxiety in her clinical practice. Her work focuses on the intersection of mental health and gender, helping women and marginalized groups heal from the tyranny of faux self-care, while exposing the systems that have gotten us here.
