7. The Mindset Shifts That Are Saving My Marriage
2020 Oct 1227m 18s
Liz brings personal and intentional reflections to you as she shares how becoming a relational therapist and doing her own "work" has literally saved her marriage. There are many common idealistic mindsets or expectations that we carry into our committed relationship, whether we realize it or not. Liz will talk through some of the few that have shifted her thinking, and why these are so important to consider if you're in a committed relationship.
6. When Genetic Testing Turns Your World Upside Down
2020 Oct 0748m 35s
During this conversation, Liz talks with Cotey Bowman, LPC Associate, therapist, and someone who personally experienced a NPE, or Not-Parent Expected/Non-Paternity Event. In other terms, Cotey discovered (through genetic testing he received as a Christmas gift) that who he thought his biological parents both were for his entire life up to adulthood, were not. This sparked him on a different path in life, including new professional discoveries about this rising experience that so many millennials are going through. You won't want to miss this relevant discussion; Cotey brings so much honesty, compassion, and comfort through facts, a real understanding of the emotional waves this brings, and how to find connection and support if this experience is something you've found yourself in the midst of.
