trichotillomania is a body-focused repetitive behavior (BFRB) in which the sufferer compulsively pulls out their own hair. compulsive hair pulling and skin picking are disorders that cause millions of people to live in shame and isolation. though now in remission, i am one of the 2-4% of people that find themselves pulling their own hair out.

in 2015, had the pleasure of working with the TLC foundation for BFRB's to create images for their new website. TLC transforms the lives of sufferers and their families by providing hope, support, and recovery. if you would like more information about trich or body focused repetitive disorders, check out their website at
