Have you ever felt a little “crazy” when it comes to your mental health?
In this episode, Sam is joined by National Board Certified Counselor and mental health therapist, Juliet Kuehnle. Juliet is the owner of Sun Counseling & Wellness in Charlotte, NC and author or the book, Who You Callin’ Crazy?! The Journey From Stigma To Therapy.
Sam and Juliet begin the episode by discussing Juliet’s journey to becoming a therapist. They discuss how Juliet became a weight-inclusive therapist, which is sometimes not common with helping professionals.
Sam and Juliet then discuss Juliet’s book and her mission to decrease the stigma around therapy and talking about mental health. They talk about the use of the word “crazy” and how language matters when talking about mental illness. They also talk about some common internalized biases that we may hold about mental health.
In this episode, we discuss:
- Why “clicking” with a therapist is so important
- When it may be time to seek therapy
- How therapy can be beneficial
- Tips for working with a therapist
