EPISODE 5- INTROVERTS UNITE!

00:0000:00

In this episode, I talk with my friend and colleague, Elisa.  We discuss introverts, extroverts, ambiverts and some labels that [we] introverts do not like.  We talk about pets, counselor life, and my extroverted partner.  Are you an introvert?  Listen for our GAME/QUIZ that gives characteristics of a true introvert (it'll make you say *same*)

Stay tuned to the very end for a special easter egg surprise (silliness ensues)!  

How to tell a person they need professional help.

00:0000:00

In this short episode, or "mini-sode" as I like to call it, I give a few tips on how to gently confront a person about going to see a therapist. It's easier said than done...but what is worse...feeling a bit embarrased about bringing it up? OR...Never saying anything about it but regret it later?

Hi, listeners!  I just want to thank you all for all the support, messages, and positivity!  My little fan-base is growing and I truly appreciate every like, share, and download!

In this episode, the last of a four part series for #Mentalhealthawareness month, I talk about how to find a therapist that is right for you.  

I list out factors to consider about your therapist like: cost, affordability, geographical location, types of licensed therapists, and specialties.  I, of course, mention how you should find a provider who matches your style and someone who makes you feel emotionally safe.

From existing to LIVING- Mental Health Awareness Month

00:0000:00

All of the interviews and episodes in the month of MAY will be related to #fightingthestigma and #Mentalhealthawarenessmonth. 

In April, I posted openings for interviews on FB and Insta.  I asked if there were any brave souls willing to talk openly about their mental health struggles.  Because MH stigma is so strong, I didn't expect to get many responses.  Luckily, I am friends with many fearless mental health warriors, and here I interview one of them!  

In this episode, I talk with my friend, Clarissa, about her own depression and treatment.  We candidly discuss medication, symptoms, and life changing interventions.
