My Favorite Quotes From Katrina:
“Regardless of your gender, your race, self-care is for everyone.”
“We’re human first, and we all are dealing with and have mental health; a lot of us deal with it in different ways.”
“we need to be open and vulnerable, especially for men, when it comes to therapy, and not make them feel bad if they’re in therapy, because therapy is very normal. Therapy is therapeutic and it’s self care.”
“Like a person who’s actively in the gym and workout, that’s a part of their life; therapy can be a part of your life.”
