Tips to finding the right therapist for you

“We have shifted our romantic partner to being everything for us. They don't need to be our best friend and work-out partner and all of these things. No one person can fill all of those roles. So we really need to be making sure that we are spreading all of that out and being intentional about building multiple different relationships in our lives.”

Every episode is so amazing. You always hit it on the nail. I always look forward to your episodes ! Great job !


Stacy has a way of bringing out each guest’s vulnerable side. I find myself responding to the convo as if I’m there with them. If there’s an episode with a guest I’m unfamiliar with I usually end up wondering why am I just hearing about this person? Looking forward to more inspiration.


Hands down one of the best podcast I listen to! Love the conversations and genuine spirit of the host!


Love hearing conversations with Stacy. It’s like I’m in the room with her and her every guest. Community. Curiosity. Connection.
