Needy Book Tour

You have needs and your needs matter.

And yet, you’ve been taught that pushing your needs to the back burner is the only way to get things done, that your needs are an overwhelming burden, or that self-care is a luxury you can’t afford. But the presence of your needs is a fact and not a flaw.

You can reclaim your energy and give yourself permission to take up space in the center of your own life.

Are you ready to reclaim and reimagine self-care—on your own terms?

Early Praise for Needy

A deliciously nourishing and sustainable life requires attending to your needs and wants while simultaneously disentangling the beliefs and conditioning that keep you from feeling you deserve this attention from yourself.
