    Working with teenagers is not an easy task but then again, neither is parenting them. I’m joined today by Rachel Nanney LPC of Life Works Counseling Center.

    Ep 45: René the Broken: Part 2 of my Hospitalization

    My official diagnosis was Guillain-Barré and this episode discusses what that means. I also talk about the how I learned to walk again, and I can’t confirm or deny it was due to the frustration of “advocating for my self”.  If you’re an occupational or physical therapist, I will always love you.

    Ep 43: Boundaries 101

    Boundaries is a topic that comes out often in both my personal life and private practice. It’s not something we have a class about, but its something that could possibly save our lives. They can come in different types such as rigid or loose, but the goal is to set heathy and appropriate boundaries so that we can continue to grow in an empowering way.

    What are personal boundaries? How do I get some?

The Three R's: Real, Relaxed and Relatable

This show is great for those needing a nudge in feeling more comfortable when talking about therapy. The host makes the conversations relatable to the listener and the specialists interviewed seem to be carefully selected to present a real and modern approach to the word "therapy". Favorite episode has been #12 on Holistic Therapy. Keep up the good work!
