Every day is special at A Safe Place, but today was one of those extra special days! Our members gathered together for our Valentine’s Day celebration at our Outreach Center. We are convinced you could hear our laughter from a mile away! We decorated everywhere, played games, held contests, enjoyed an incredible meal, exchanged goodies, and topped it off with a visit from our friends at Stable Ground Counseling and Salt and Cypress Counseling PLLC! One member shared that her cheeks hurt from smiling so much today and we all agreed! The love that fills our Outreach Center is so special, on Valentine’s Day and every day. We are so grateful to be a part of a place that allows women to feel safe enough to love and be loved. ❤️

Workshops | Saltandcypress


So many people think that postpartum depression is just lots of crying and wanting to harm yourself or your baby. But it's so much more than that, and we do parents a disservice when all the symptoms aren't disclosed. Postpartum Depression can also look like:
🔷 Feelings of anger or irritability
🔷 Lack of interest in the baby
🔷 Appetite and sleep disturbances
🔷 Crying and sadness
🔷 Feelings of guilt, shame, or hopelessness
🔷 Loss of interest, joy, or pleasure in things you used to enjoy
🔷 Possible thoughts of harming yourself or your baby

You are not alone. You are not to blame. You can get better. If you need help, call or text HELP to 800-944-4773. You do not need a diagnosis to reach out to our HelpLine. We're here for you 💙

There is a big industry that profits off our insecurities but the truth is even if we all ate the same foods and exercised the exact same way our bodies would still look different. Movement and exercise are good! Eating veggies are good! Living in a state of guilt around your food choices and exercise is not good. Let's be kind and patient with these meat suits we have been gifted. They've served us pretty well so far.


I am so happy to be teaming up with to bring you this virtual workshop!

You may benefit from an intuitive eating practice if you have ever found yourself trapped in cycles of dieting, restricting foods you enjoy, using exercise as a punishment, or feeling guilt about your food choices.

This workshop will provide you with an introduction to mindful and intuitive eating and how it can improve your mental wellness and physical wellness. You will learn how to begin to heal your relationship with food and your body.

"Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfort with feelings of wellness and contentment." Isn't that just the comfiest coziest word you've ever heard?!

I think "hygge" is my word for 2022. I've been carrying around this lavender neck pillow for the past few days. Warms up in the microwave and it's super hygge!
