 Yanira Peña, LMFT from Tustin, CA is one of our two season closers. We recorded this special episode on May 18th, 2019 LIVE in front of 70 people who attended our 1 year celebration in Los Angeles. This episode discusses the separation of religion, therapy and mental health. We review common misconceptions through her experience of being raised Catholic and now practicing Christianity. Yanira discloses a personal experience where she needed to embrace both religion and therapy. She uses both her professional and personal experience with this topic! We do want to advise that there is a trigger warning discussing miscarriage.
