“Me, too.” It’s one of the most powerful phrases in the English language. That’s because facing life’s challenges is much easier once we realize that we often share the same fears. In 15 years as a therapist in private practice, I‘ve worked with clients facing problems ranging from an unresolved conflict with a parent to a breakup with a partner who wasn’t right to begin with. No matter what the nature of the problem, I’ve noticed one common denominator: a feeling of envy and shame tied to bearing the burden of these struggles alone. I launched my Shared Secrets podcast series hoping the honest and open conversations with my guests will help empower others to share their secret wisdom. I hope you will find these discussions to be enlightening, inspiring and motivating. Because in our triumphs and in our struggles, we are all connected.
