Chris interviews two therapists—Briana Petters and Troy Leishman—and they chat about self-care and mental health. They respond to listener-submitted questions/discussions about healthy conflict, emotional intimacy, faith crisis, and dealing with isolation/shame.
Briana has had a passion for defending the defenseless for as long as she can remember. She studied Psychology during her undergrad at Brigham Young University and then got her MSW (concentrating on Mental Health but also developing a background in Forensic Social Work) from the University of Utah. She works from a humanistic perspective, focusing on ACT, mind-body bridging, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness therapeutic practices. She has worked with trauma, PTSD, LGBTQ, veterans, spiritual transitions, autism spectrum, and substance abuse among other populations.
