    S1E8: Are You In a Toxic Relationship?

    S1E8: Are You In a Toxic Relationship?

    Welcome to Coffee and Counseling with your hosts Cherlette McCullough and Cristina Ally. We have a great show for you today. Today we are talking about toxic relationships. While no relationship is picture perfect, whether its family, romantic or business it could be TOXIC. But for the most part, a good relationship should make you feel heard, secure, happy, cared for, respected, and free to be yourself. Toxic relationships are ones that make you feel angry, drained, depleted, and sometimes confused.
    So today, we will talk about what a toxic relationship looks like, how to handle a toxic relationship, how to end a toxic relationship, dating after a toxic relationship has ended and more importantly how to take ownership if you are the toxic person in the relationship.  So, if you’re ready for a great show, let’s jump right in!...

My new besties

OMG! I don’t know where to start with these two phenomenal women. They are so genuine and I feel like I’ve known forever. I love the transparency. They always leave you with great points and “take aways”. What better way to ride to work than with Cristina, Cherlette, and my coffee?
...oh can’t forget my fan.

Heteronormative

In the two episodes I’ve listened to, the hosts rarely mentioned LGBTQ+ people or issues. If you are a heterosexual person, then this may not be an issue for you. If you are LGBTQ+ or a clinician who works with that population, you will not find much use in these episodes.

Where has this show been my whole life?

Love these two ladies! Fun show that unpacks and breaks down complex topics in a fun and relatable way. You can tell they love what they do. Highly recommended.
