Episode 80: Do You Need Therapy?

Do you struggle with taming anxiety, calming depression, or finding peace of mind? You're not alone. 1 in 5 adults in America have a mental health condition, affecting a person's thinking, feeling or mood. Mental health can reach anyone - regardless of culture, race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. 

My guest, Leslie Garcia, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) shares her experiences as a mental health and wellness professional and what she's learned in 15+ years of helping others. 

We discuss: 

  • The stigma of mental health

  • Preventative mental health and wellness

  • People of color and therapy

  • Finding the right mental health professional or therapist for you

  • Differences between LCSW, counselor, pyschologist and psychiatrist

  • Adding therapy to your self-care practice

  • Political trauma

  • and more!

Leslie Garcia is the founder of Counseling Space, dedicated to empowering and giving its clients the support, guidance and tools needed to take and keep control of their lives.
