Season 2, Episode 2: Pain as Fuel for Growth with Whitney Boole, LMFT

Today, I’m truly excited to introduce you to one of the sponsors for the Shine Retreat for women, which is coming up in September of this year, and you are all personally invited. We will be talking more about that later in the podcast.

Today’s wonderful guest is Whitney Boole, LMFT. Whitney is a therapist, coach, and writer in private practice in Hermosa Beach, CA. She provides therapy for individuals and relationships, and she believes pain fuels growth and empowerment. She is also a single mother with three kids, including ridiculously wild twins who climb everything and leave uncapped markers everywhere they go. She runs a Facebook Group for people healing through divorce and is building more resources for those struggling with the trauma of divorce. Whitney's book "You Got This: Healing Through Divorce" was just released May 7 and is available on Amazon.

Please join us as we talk about breaking patterns that we might not even be aware that we have, moving through trauma, and taking control of our healing. We also talk about Whitney’s new book, and how she has a heart for helping people and meeting them where they’re at.

I’m offering a $50 discount off Shine Retreat registration to all listeners of this podcast.
