This resource page is a threefold approach to my own self care strategy: Knowledge, Connection, and Relaxation.  I use all three elements in my work as well as my life because they are proven to reduce stress, create new neural pathways, and increase positive health outcomes. Our work together would involve the integration of each of these skills.
