25. Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife – Relationship and Sexuality Coach/Licensed Counselor

We had the opportunity to interview Dr. Finlayson-Fife this week.  Here are a couple of questions that we went over:

  1. I suffer from anxiety and depression, and I have often noticed that the expectations that are set by others or myself can create a captivity in my life, and I feel like those captive feelings cause my mental state to struggle or spiral.  What would you suggest I do, or others do in order to manage expectations?
  2. Culturally, we have an idea that by being righteous, we will prosper as a people and individuals. How do we define “being prosperous” in a meaningful way?

Dr. Finlayson-Fife has an amazing bio and her interview captivated us. She has the ability to talk on a high level about many subjects. If you are looking to improve your life, find more success, and define balance, this interview will help you down that road in ways that you may not have imagined before.
