Pretty Mental is about accepting our full selves and inspiring others to do the same by being daringly unfiltered. This means completely normalizing all things mental health and the wild journey that has brought us here. We are challenging the stigmatization of normal human suffering. We are done pretending and subscribing to the notion that it’s taboo to have challenging mental health experiences.

    For today’s podcast we had the chance to sit down for a heart to heart with the beautiful soul Amanda Johnson.

In this conversation we deep dove into:


    Amanda’s beautiful journey to becoming enough and aligning with her authentic path
    The conditioning that many of us have to learn to release on this journey to healing our relationship with ourselves and the world
    Practices for cultivating “Heart Health” and tapping more deeply into our intuition
    Her experience with a cult and red flags that we should all learn to look out for when choosing guides on this healing journey

    A deeper understanding of what it means to create our own reality from a neuroscience perspective.

    Why continuing our mental healthcare practices when we’re feeling good is so important!

    Cultivating hope, trusting the process and having patience with the healing journey.

    Why leaving survival mode is a huge step in our healing journey and what comes next.
