Episode 62: It's Ok To Not Like Your Kids Sometimes
Sophia and Dr. L have a discussion about Parental Burnout Syndrome and it's effects. One of the major symptoms is a disconnect from your children and even at times not liking them.

Episode 61: Stepping into the Soft Girl Era
Everywhere we scroll, woman are exploring and encouraging one another to embrace the "Soft Life". While the concept sounds so tempting, this way of life may not feel natural or come easy for most of us. Dr. L and Sophia take some time to discuss some factors that can make this "Soft Life" rather HARD.
Episode 60: Are You Seeking Validation in an Unhealty Way?
Maslow teaches us we all desire to have a sense of belonging and acceptance. Validation is healthy until we start to seek it to make many of our decisions or when we rely on validation to dictate our self-esteem and self worth. Join Sophia and Dr. L as they breakdown what's behind seeking validation and ways to shift the mindset and behaviour.
Episode 59: Staying Stuck
As adults, most of us have found ourselves in a situation that did not serve us well and it was hard to determine what to do. Dr. L and Sophia take some time in this episode to chat about the primary reasons why we stay stuck in situations that we are unsure or uncomfortable with. Whether it's a friendship, business, relationship or job, understanding what keeps us ready to move into taking action steps.
Episode 58: Creating the Life You Want With Your Intentions
In this last month of December Soph and Dr. L explore the reasons why intentions are so powerful in your life. We spend so much time setting goals for the new year and focusing on the outcome, we sometimes lose our way. However setting intentions allows you to identify what you desire and become empowered by taking charge of your life 1 intention at a time. Join The Real Therapist in this episode as we shift our way of being before 2023!
