Badass Boundaries for Healers http://www.janetchui.com/badass-boundaries/ http://www.janetchui.com/badass-boundaries/#respond Sat, 15 Dec 2018 06:03:28 +0000 http://www.janetchui.com/?p=3092 In this post, I will be using “healer” to mean anyone who works in the capacity of energy reading or providing an alternative therapy/healing service of any sort.
