Mari is the real deal.  A therapist, mentor, entrepreneur.  She does it all!  I was extremely humbled when talking to her.  I hope you enjoy the episode as much as I do!  Below are some of the resources we talk about in the episode:

Wellness: prayer/meditation, nature hikes, pets, dance.  (Speaking of pets, here is Willie, my awesome 9 year old dog)

Book: "Daring Greatly" by Brene Brown- I'm actually reading this book for the second time right now.  It's a "must read" for therapists.
