Description

Today, I'm joined by Haesue Jo, Licensed Therapist & Head of Clinical Operations at BetterHelp, with years of experience providing individual and family therapy in community mental health. Her current clinical focus includes working with individuals with a variety of presenting problems, including anxiety, relationship and family issues, trauma, community violence, gender identity, and depression.

It’s going to be a little different today as I take the client seat and get a first hand experience of what it’s like to be in a therapy session. This is Part 1 of a 2-Part special episode and we open the conversation by talking about my childhood experiences - how it affects my adulthood, the memories that may seem as passing but are actually traumatic, and how these can possibly lead to repression of painful memories. Haesue also helps uncover the challenges surrounding racism, bullying, identity crisis, teenage struggles, and finding your safe space and security.  

This episode is sponsored by BetterHelp.

I have listening to this podcast over and over again. And I cant help but smile and yet feel sad about what you had to go thru as a child. I am more than happy you turned out to be the motivator and inspirer that you are. Not to self diagnose however there are some similar points in your childhood and or points you raised that triggered memories of my childhood that I had buried... All in all I am happy I listened to this.
