    7. Perfectionism: The What, Who, How, Why and What To Do About it With Michelle Perlongo

    7. Perfectionism: The What, Who, How, Why and What To Do About it With Michelle Perlongo

    In this episode, I sat down with my friend Michelle Perlongo, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. Michelle works primarily with children and teenagers, as well as adults dealing with many issues such as anxiety, depression, and obsessive compulsive disorder. Recently, Michelle also became certified Reiki Level 1 healing. In our conversation, we dive deep into the subject of perfectionism. Perfectionist personality traits can start in childhood, and develop into serious conditions as teens and adults. Michelle takes us through how these traits start to present themselves, some common reasons why, who is likely to develop perfectionist traits, why this is a problem, and what we can do about it. I hope you enjoy this chat as much as I did! **Please note there is some harsh language used in this episode.
