Welcome to The Padded Room

This blog is here to serve as your humble companion in your quest for a sense of wellness. In these posts, I’ll share the latest research paired with my psychological insights to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and the world around you. 

I’m here to provide you with a science-backed, no bullshit approach to help you achieve long term growth and change. 

Why is it called The Padded Room? Well, first off, I thought it was funny – a sense of humor goes a long way. And, much like the old concept of placing someone in a padded room for safety, I like to think of this as your virtual safe space to help with the jarring realities of life. Here, you’ll find a soft landing for life’s harshest truths.

Please feel free to explore. You can start with my most recent posts or, just below, you’ll find a list of categories that will allow you to sift through my blog based on your interests.
