I’d never want to think that a chronic condition would affect my identity, but when there are both social and introspective pressures and stereotypes involved, it’s easy for it to become a part of me.
Erroneous Asthma Stereotypes
It’s no secret that the media portrays asthma in a rather strange light. Inhalers are often used as props to suggest that a character is a “nerd.” Usually, it’s the outcast character with Coke bottle glasses who takes their inhaler when social ...
I’m just going to say it, a screaming goat is a seriously misunderstood caprine. The internet erupted with viral posts of screaming goats. It was shocking how human-like these goat voices were.
I’ll admit, I was amused…until I had a screaming goat of my own. From the first moment I heard my sweet Boer Goat, Fern, scream like a child being thrown into the back of a candy-toting van, I was no longer entertained by the internet phenomenon.

If you’ve found yourself in the vicious cycle of jumping from one job to another, whether it’s because you keep getting fired or you’re just fed up, it’s time to stop-like dead in your tracks.
I think it was Albert Einstein that said,
“Doing the same thing over and over and expecting new results is the definition of insanity.”
It can be useful to try again when you’ve failed at something you are passionate about. Eventually, you are bound to get it right.
But, if what you’re d...
We all know that healthcare is pricey. In fact, it’s something most Americans have come to accept. The worst part about the cost of healthcare, however, is knowing that about 25% is considered wasteful spending.
That 25%, is exactly what The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) recently discovered in a study.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was something we could do to decrease healthcare waste? In other words, our cost of healthcare?
It’s a difficult dream to disagree with, but it...
A Counselor for Everyone
It’s our belief that there’s an ideal counselor for everyone, but finding the right fit shouldn’t be difficult.
With reverence for the personal touch that makes the relationship between counselor and client special, we’ve infused relationship-matching science into our platform to keep each connection unique and meaningful.
It is within this proprietary matching program that our true magic lies. We pair clients with counselors based on the qualities clients are actively seeking in mental health providers. In doing so, we’re disrupting the antiquated, referral-based, s
