Clare is an espresso-fueled millennial slowly becoming acquainted with the idea of God as a loving Father. When she's not cuddling with her beloved senior cat or dreaming up the perfect tattoo fonts she's enthusiastically discussing the intersection of feminism and Catholicism.

Life in Black and White: A Journey to Validation in My Own Goodness
DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), much like Catholicism, provides a balanced and holistic way to handle intense emotions and be more effective in day-to-day life. I was raised Catholic and tend to assign moral values to everything around me even when it isn't appropriate (i.e., I am "good" or "bad" rather than saying an ethical action is "good" or "bad."). DBT helped me to move beyond that without excluding Faith-based morality.
