Learn more about the creator of Self Care Solitaire
My name is Lauren and I am an LICSW licensed therapist practicing in Minnesota. Through my work with clients, and through my own personal experiences, it has become clear to me that many of us prioritize other things over our self care. In our busy lives, these sacrifices often feel necessary to us, and may even be praised by others. However, a lifestyle in which self care is put on the back burner is not sustainable. We deserve more!
My goal for this website, and for the Self Care Solitaire card decks, is two fold. I want to use my therapeutic training and experience to provide people with concrete ideas for self care activities and routines. Furthermore, I want to put forth content that affirms people and helps them reconnect with the idea, or realize for the first time, that they are worth of caring for. I hope to inspire people to act upon the knowledge that they deserve to take care of themselves. Because they do. YOU do.
