Podcast Interview: Mindful Approach to Anger, Uncomfortable Feelings, & Boundaries

It was such a treat to be interviewed by my longtime friend, Christine Eartheart, in her podcast, The Thriving Relationships Show.

Christine has interviewed some of my mentors and favorite humans like, Dr. Gay Hendricks, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, Danielle LaPorte, and more. It was a huge honor to be interviewed.

I really loved our conversations about healthy relationship practices, boundaries, working with uncomfortable feelings like anger, navigating conflict, and more.
