A stuffy doc Faith Harper is not — the counselor, sexologist, nutritionist and zine-maker disavows pretension in her wisdom- and profanity-laden book, Unf#ck Your Brain: Using Science to Get Over Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Freak-Outs and Triggers. And what time of the year is more triggering than the holiday season?

With Christmas decor hitting shelves as early as August (yes, we’re aghast too), the yuletide creeps into a larger portion of each year, accompanied by broiling political brouhaha over the family table, the scramble to afford an ever-lengthening list of gifts and enough tinsel to choke a reindeer (or eight). If that last sentence was enough to raise your blood pressure, consider dropping by the Love Shack for Harper’s holiday-themed chat about healthy ways to cope and otherwise “Unf#ck Your Holiday Stress.”

$15, Wed Dec. 19, 7pm, the Love Shack Boutique, 1580 Babcock Rd., (210) 767-9411,
