Losing a loved one or being close to someone who has lost a loved one, is a devastating experience, to say the least. And yet, experiencing death is an inevitable encounter we all have either gone through or will go through at some point in this life- so it's important to build a mentally healthy culture around how we cope through such losses. On Today's episode, I got to sit and chat with my friend Dr. Therese about wrestling through the deeply complicated emotions of grief and loss, how to cope, how to begin moving forward and how to support someone who is in the depths of grieving.

Dr. Therese hails from Southern California, like myself, and is a Filipina- American Licensed Clinical Psychologist, self care and personal development guru. Berkely educated, this woman is a mover and a shaker with a drive for building community and entrepreneurship. Through her lens of vivacity and delight, she shares about mental health, freedom from anxiety and travel and discovery. Dr. Therese is passionate about inspiring people to explore and live braver, healthier, more connected lives.
