Meet Hope, Mary, and Katie, a Licensed Professional Counselor, Physician Assistant, and Certified Yoga Teacher who offer round table conversations about issues that affect women's mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health. Join us as we tackle the highs and lows that come with being a modern woman. Through honesty and laughter (and maybe some tears), we'll explore concepts like relationships, parenting, depression, anxiety, boundaries, healthy eating, work/life balance, and the elusive concept of self-care. Weekly podcasts will provide helpful tips, resources, and occasionally other guests to encourage us ALL in this crazy journey we call life. Whether you're driving, multitasking, or taking a coffee break, we hope you'll grow with us as we strive to redefine sisterhood and its importance to happiness and health.
