In the iGetBetter Podcast, we discuss topics related to life, love, spiritual, mental, and emotional health and how we can ALL get better, together. The show is hosted by Charlene Rene and Phedra Smith, two friends and therapists, who co-founded Greenhouse Counseling, LLC. We discuss personal life challenges and successes as well as community issues and work to raise awareness about mental health disorders and treatment options while also answering questions from listeners. New episodes are aired every two weeks.

Are you comfortable giving or do you have issues around this idea? Well, join us to see where you fall on this topic in today’s show. Explore the perks, barriers and ways to get better at giving.
Do you love your work, or is it a pain in the you know what? Listen as we discuss what why we should get better at our WORK--how can we do this, and what barriers stand in our way? Work can be difficult, but when we find ways to get better at it, we can discover the rewards that come from it, and even enjoy it!
Listen as we discuss what it means to get FOCUSED--on your work, on your dreams, your goals. What happens when you lose focus and what can you gain by getting better? Distractions are all around us but if we can regain our focus, the is no limit to what we can achieve.
Listen ask we discuss what it means to GET and KEEP your peace--what barriers get in the way and practical ways we can get better at it. Often we allow others to have power over our peace and it is our responsibility to learn how to protect it.
Listen ask we discuss what it means to Reflect--what barriers get in the way and practical ways we can get better on reflection. The benefits of reflecting are numerous and an essential part of growth-both personally and professionally. When we reflect, we are not only looking back, but moving forward with power!
I GOT BETTER MOMENT
I just have to tell you guys- your podcast has been playing through my speaker ALL DAY. So much so I confronted one of my fears today that has been plaguing my heart and my mind for over a year. This podcast made me realize the ideas I’d concocted in my head might not be mirrored in reality. This revolves around feeling as if I’d failed a friend and a friendship. I profoundly apologized to this friend because I felt responsible and guilty for the lack of communication this last year and a half and her response immediately brought tears to my eyes alongside relief. She said she has never harbored anything against me and the reason we’d lost touch had nothing to do with any direct action/inaction on my part. I felt a tad selfish for having made our distance about me; BUT also instant relief. I truly have you both to thank for that. This podcast is so calming and relatable to me, even in the parts that are uncomfortable as a white woman who stands with the black community amidst prejudice and racism in society. Those parts are not supposed to be easy and Ive absorbed so much from the tough dialogue. I’ve always loved learning from Phedra as a friend throughout the years and now the world gets to which is amazing. I’m sorry this is a novel but I had to share 💛 thank you thank you thank you ladies! The methods WORK and I’ll continue to do my part and GET BETTER 💛
Literally saved my marriage!
The episode on Couples was a real eye opener!! I learned so many gems on how to communicate and listen to my husband. Also, how to respectfully agree to disagree. This podcast also helped me to see that more than most we are on the right track...especially as far as intimacy goes. Thank you so much ladies and keep u the good work! I’ll be tuning in for sure!
It was a great topic for discussion. We all often struggle with this on a daily basis. I’m learning new ways to manage my time in order to have more patience. I often get frustrated when when rushed which isn’t good.
Ladies Im looking forward to hearing more.
