Today we have another special guest who we think is very timely especially during this pandemic. We have the owner, and director of Gillen psychotherapy, and a licensed mental health counselor. She answers our questions about the walls we consciously or subconsciously put up, what are the triggers to recognize these, and more importantly how can we help ourselves.
