Mid-Year Goals Check-in & Podcast Update
We’re almost exactly halfway through the year, so today, I’m going to talk about revisiting annual goals and reevaluating what is and isn't realistic in light of all of the changes and unexpected experiences 2020 has brought.

29. My Favorite Recent Reads & Reflections On Author Diversity
A couple years ago, as I in one of the first few classes in my counseling program, I realized that most of the authors who I was reading looked a lot like me, and had similar life experiences. Reading their words was easy, affirming, and restful. And honestly, I believe that there's a time and a place for that comfort. But I was also missing out on SO many people's stories by exclusively learning from people who looked and lived like me.
As I've broadened the diversity of authors I learn from, I've noticed I've increased my empathy for people from different backgrounds, and I've also learned that my perspective isn't the only perspective. I'm not always "right" and the vision, dreams, and individualist nature that comes naturally to me isn't the best or most healthy perspective for all.
In this episode, I hope I'll inspire you to pick up a book from an author who might offer you a different point of view.
Sex, Intimacy & Tools For Educating Your Kids
This is one of my favorite episodes so far because I know it's going to be valuable for so many of you.
My guest for Episode 28 is Holly Osment, LMFT, LPCC,. Professor Osment is a mom of 2, a private practice sex psychotherapist, and an adjunct professor in my grad program at Santa Clara University.
Her Human Sexuality class has opened my mind and educated me in so many ways I didn't anticipate, and I'm thrilled she agreed to share her knowledge with my community.
In this episode, we talk about the gaps in sex education, the importance of knowing your anatomy, the shame and secrecy around sexuality in our culture, and how to talk to your kids about sex.
