Hobbies, interest and life skills. I hope you dance!
Hobbies and interests are important in life and can be utilized as tools for stress management, increased socialization, and connection with others. When working with clients, I often emphasize the importance of leisure activities and socialization with others. For many trying new things can be difficult. In those situations, I suggest clients consider activities they participated in when they were younger and continue or engage in similar activities as adults. Often activities that we enjoy in younger years can provide us with satisfaction as years progress and situations in life change.
1. What activity did you enjoy in the past?
2. How can you continue to engage in the activity now?
During this episode of Tea and Therapy, Dr. Kimberly and her dance friends (Elaina Conrad, Jillian Godwin, Catania James) as they discuss their journey to dance and how dance has sustained them through various stages of life.
Do you dance? What have been your childhood dreams? Have you been told that you're too much or not enough for dance? There's still time to follow your dreams!

Tea and Therapy: Race as a social construct: How black do you like your coffee?
Dr. Kimberly’s Tea and Therapy: Race as a social construct: How black do you like your tea? Welcome to the July Podcast for Tea and Therapy. This month Dr. Kimberly is joined by members of the community in an open discussion on Race and Community. While Tea and Therapy is dedicated to decreasing the stigma of mental health and decreasing access to mental health care for communities, this episode was created as a result of tragic situations and subsequent protests that occurred throughout America and other countries in May 2020. Those events added to the spark of century-old conversations and possible solutions regarding racial distress. This podcast brings forth a variety of discussions and hopefully the start of individual and community healing.
