This episode was originally recorded back in September 2023. Ever struggled to juggle the balls of career, passion, and self-care? We're here to tell you that you're not alone. Join us as we sit down with Liz, a mental health therapist who made the leap from corporate marketing to counseling, and still manages to find time for her passion - triathlons. Liz's journey of resilience, dedication, and the human spirit will inspire you and remind you of the importance of doing what you love.

Next, we delve into the fascinating world of parent-child interaction therapy. Liz shares her experience with this transformative therapy approach designed to address trauma and improve behavior in children. We chew over the vital role parents play, how it equips them with key skills for positive interactions, and the significant impact it can have on reducing negative behavior. It's all about strengthening that parent-child bond, and Liz is here to guide us through it.

Finally, we zoom in on Liz's double identity as a therapist and triathlete, and the unique challenges it brings. Listen up as she shares both laughter and tears - how she copes with the emotional intensity of her work by hitting the pavement or the bike trail, her love for fantasy football, and her ongoing battle with cookie baking. We round things off with insights into the intricacies of working with teenagers in therapy, and how social media shapes their understanding of mental health. Buckle up for an episode filled with insights, anecdotes, and practical wisdom - it's one you won't want to miss!
