“Emotional pain is not something that should be hidden away and never spoken about. There is truth in your pain, there is growth in your pain, but only if it’s first brought out into the open.”
— Steven Aitchison

The Companion I Needed Years Ago

KNOW YOURSELF is a 90-day guided journal I created to help you on your mental wellness journey. 

It's designed to take you on a journey by helping you identify your struggles and feelings, learn what's holding you back, discover what you need, set healthy boundaries, and practice taking care of yourself—mentally, physically and spiritually.

Your healing is on the other side of vulnerability and compassion—first with yourself and then with others. If you truly want to find healing, you have to work from the inside out, which is what this guided journal will help you do.

It contains:

  • The details of my mental health journey to provide you with background, insight and hope.

  • An explanation of the five mental wellness practices that I use in my own life that are essential to your ongoing mental health journey as well as instructions on how to practice them in your life.

  • Daily, weekly, and monthly workbook pages with prompts and examples to help you implement the five mental wellness practices in your life.

  • Inspiring quotes to keep you going!

My goal is to help those who feel broken beyond repair to obtain healing and discover their worth that is often buried under pain and mental illness. I believe that KNOW YOURSELF can be a big part of what helps you achieve this. Then, from a place of wholeness, you can begin to build the life you want without being held back by past trauma and mental illness.

Your trauma, mental illness—whatever it may be—does not define you and does not have to dictate how beautiful your life can be. I know this from personal experience. I hope that you will get the help you need—whether it be therapy, support groups, books, the KNOW YOURSELF guided journal, or all of the above!

You are worthy of healing. You are deserving of happiness. I hope that you will begin your journey towards mental wellness and inner strength today.

Sending love, positivity, and prayers,
