Goals can be a touchy subject. I feel like it’s a term thrown around a lot but not necessarily defined thoroughly. We cannot discuss goals if we don’t talk about motivation to change and of course, how to actually define them. This show discusses the SMART method and what to know when you go into that first session. Like, share, subscribe, and as always remember to #FeedYourMentalHealth.
