Ep 43: Boundaries 101

Click here to download!

Boundaries is a topic that comes out often in both my personal life and private practice. It’s not something we have a class about, but its something that could possibly save our lives. They can come in different types such as rigid or loose, but the goal is to set heathy and appropriate boundaries so that we can continue to grow in an empowering way.

For those that have been with me since the relaunch, one of the more popular episodes we had was #29 with Chris Ice on Cultural Mentoring. If you haven’t heard the episode, please do. You’ll quickly hear his passion for working with youth and creating an environment where they strive. Unfortunately, two of it’s members passed away this past week in the North Texas area. They were brothers Daniel (14) & Diego (17) Rivera. I am asking you to please consider donating to the gofundme page below to assist the family in any expenses that may arise. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
