There’s still a bit of mystery—and sometimes, stigma—surrounding psychotherapy, so I’m starting an occasional series called, “Let’s Talk Therapy!” In these episodes we’ll pull back the curtain and provide the inside scoop on what counseling is all about! Today, Eli Weinstein, LCSW, shares his professional and personal journey as a social worker and therapist. Join us as we discuss:
The lingering stigma surrounding mental health.
The “dream” of treating emotional health with the same frequency as our physical health.
Why saying “I’m having a panic attack!” when you’re actually just nervous, is problematic for ourselves and others.
The relationship between your health insurance provider and therapist.
What therapists can do to see their clients more objectively.
What YOU can do to be sure you pick the right counselor for you!
We wrap up with Eli’s philosophy on dating, relationships, and marriage—some of our fav Love & Life topics!
