Thriving in Midlife: How to Navigate Life's Challenges and Achieve Your Goals with Lisa Mustard

I'm doing something a little different in this week’s episode. I’m calling it a reverse interview - instead of me being the interviewer, I'm the interviewee. Recently I had the pleasure of being on my friend Chris McDonald’s podcast, the Holistic Counseling podcast, where we talked about navigating aging and midlife with ease. She is such a great host and interviewer, and I asked her if I could take the interview and add it to my episodes. 

Chris just joined the PsychCraft network of podcasters - if you haven’t already checked out her show, you won’t be disappointed if holistic counseling and modalities are of interest to you!

And if you’re curious about adding holistic counseling treatments to your practice, be sure to check out her trainings. Plus, you can earn continuing education contact hours.

      It’s important to stress that these episodes are not meant to take the place of any work you’re doing with your therapist or doctor. In fact, please run these ideas by your counselor or doctor before you act on them to make sure you are ready for them or even fit for the suggestions. I can’t stress this enough, each person is unique and their situation is unique so please talk to your dr before starting anything new I may be suggesting.
