In this episode I talk to Erica Basso, LMFT about the pervasive issues women (and men!) are facing in today’s world. We discuss the idea that lack of connection and community are at the core of many mental health and substance use disorders – and given that Erica worked in rehab facilities and I frequented them, we had much to talk about on that subject. Erica lays out the four most common challenges she sees in practice today – being anxiety, burnout, imposter syndrome and perfectionism – and explores their origins as well as solutions.
This episode is packed with tips on how to live in the now, be more mindful, self regulate, change negative self talk and deal with general anxiety. It’s also full of candid sharing about my own experiences with these issues. Enjoy!
