Listen on iTunes | Spotify

How can you succeed at therapy? What’s the difference between doing your homework and committing to the healing process? What happens when you allow yourself to accurately label the full range of your feelings? And when does simply honoring your commitments become an act of courage? Dr. Maggie and patient “Jim” answer all of these questions and more in part two of our four-part real therapy session series.
