Jacob the Audio Guy ,

REALLY good Life-Coach. Pretty good Therapists.

The title says it all.

Kookarok ,

Great podcast but…..

I really enjoy this podcast and the variety of topics discussed. However, I only listen to it once in awhile because Jim often seems obnoxious and is SO LOUD. It seems like he thinks he’s the star of the podcast and always has to be the one talking. I’m sure he’s a great therapist but he’s way too much. Would love to hear more from Nick!

Midwest Frank ,

Great Episodes 👍🦋✅

I like this podcast because it’s solid information from real therapists. With so much misinformation out there about mental health issues, it’s nice to hear from licensed professionals.
