For this month, I have a podcast interview (linked below) with Alyssa Hogan–a professional therapist and someone I connected through over email a few months back.
In this podcast:
~common misconceptions about depression
~signs of depression
~what can trigger depression`
~different types of therapy, etc.
Alyssa also will walk us through an art therapy project to help us start thinking through our own emotional landscape and our needs for healing.
