YA’LL. Listen in to today’s chat with Gina Graham, LCSM for a discussion that will give you some goosebumps around thought-provoking reflections regarding self and body love, creating curiosity around roots of behavior regarding relationship with food and body, and discover HOW you can live in a world that continues to feed a problematic narrative.
This conversation with Gina lit me UP and gave me so much inspiration. The way she talked about utilizing photography as a complementary tool to her therapy as a social worker specializing in eating disorders was just … so good.
Mmm Mmm! Listen in.
