 Hey, Hey!

In this episode of the Brown Girl Self-Care Podcast, a show for Black women honoring their wholeness, I'm in conversation with Dr. Nic Hardy, a Licensed Therapist based out of TX whose zone of expertise includes helping us repair and/or grow from our relationships while also addressing challenges we face that are rooted in fear, anxiety and trauma.

His work has been featured in Cosmopolitan, HuffPost, NBC LX, PopSugar Ask.Men, Bustle, PscyhCentral and other national publications. He has also consulted on mental health for several fortune 500 companies. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Houston, where his research focused on relationship satisfaction in Black and minority families.

Today, Nic and I are talking about self-care as it relates to issues including:

Survival mode

Managing tension in relationships where we are the primary caregiver

The importance of not overcompensating in relationships

How to better communicate with your partner in healthier ways so that we aren't sending/reading the dreaded "we need to talk" text message

  • Bre, can I say, first off, thank you for sharing your gifts and talents with us. I was truly at the verge of loosing it with so many demands in my life from others. I had to stop and say no, and cut some people off (including family) from having full access to me and my time daily. It’s draining. And listening to your podcast has helped navigate the craziness in my life. Thank you so much for your passion to be your authentic self! browngirlmagic love
