In this episode of the Brown Girl Self-Care Podcast 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:
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
