I host a podcast called Why Not Both, which is an exploration of how our multiple passions inform our identity. People’s stories are vital to me and are so valuable in helping us all understand ourselves better. I was inspired to start this podcast as I feel like I operate in multiple worlds as a therapist and a musician. The more I interview people, the more fascinating it has been learning how we all balance the various sides of our selves. Please take a listen and enjoy.
