JELRNNH ,

Thank you Kristen

I feel SO grateful for finding your podcast. I began my self-healing journey (have had difficulty finding a good therapist accepting new clients where I live) about a year ago and have been doing a lot of reading, journaling and listening to podcasts since then but yours has been by far the most helpful resource I have found. And the fact that you share your own personal struggles that resonate with so many of us just adds to the gift that is your podcast. Your care and concern for others is apparent in the little “pep talks” you give at the end of each episode. It feels like you are speaking directly to me and it really helps motivate me to keep going. Thank you for all you do!! It is helping!!

Dr. Heather Browne ,

Great resource!

I am also a psychotherapist and I am really enjoying your episodes as they are significant and also help map out ways to dig deeper! Thank you for being a great resource for my clients!

Bless you!
Dr. Heather Browne

Thankful for Kristen’s Guidance

I’m so grateful to Kristen for sharing her expertise. I’ve learned how to deal with shame, healthy relationships & now gaslighting.

I see how my behavior contributes to my feelings of shame, and am better able to recognize what I want and need & allowing myself to speak up rather than take what I’m given.

Thank you Kristen.
