Paula Williams is a graduate from The Art Institute of Chicago, she believes secrecy and judgment are what make shame thrive. She created the Shamebooth to bring people’s shame stories out into the open, meet them with empathy, and banish shame for good.

Paula’s desire to help others evolved as the result of years of self medicating with booze and pills, and a history of mental health issues, which has led Paula to recovery. This experience has radically shifted her perspective towards others who are suffering and are full of shame, terrified to ask for help. Today, she is grateful to be in a position to give back.

Paula and Sarah talk about shame, shame and MORE shame! They get into the world of addiction/recovery, trauma and connection…all with their shared sense of humor and love for being a wild child.
