#40 You Can’t Spell COVID Without OCD, Real Therapy Session w/ Patient “Larisa,” Part 1 of 4

Listen on iTunes | Spotify

Even before COVID, today’s guest “Larisa” (a real OCD & Anxiety patient in the Huddle.care program) was uncomfortable with going against the grain and worried that something terrible might happen if she stepped out of line, spoke out of turn, or failed to over-prepare for anything that might come up. But thanks to Dr. Maggie and Huddle, “Larisa” is getting comfortable with discomfort, avoiding avoidance, and transforming from a conflict-averse people-pleaser to finding real satisfaction in speaking her mind and being real with the people she cares about.
