MEET YOUR PODCAST CO-HOSTS
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Co-Host
Nikki keeps it personable and professional, yet is slightly unpredictable. She is full of life, laughter, and jokes and always manages to keep people smiling. She is our resident “Squirrel So Hard” co-host, but will always keep you engaged with her expert knowledge and witty personality.
ALYSSA R. NAJERA
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Co-Host
Alyssa is typically calm and composed on most days, but often has difficulty containing her excitement about the little things in life. She enjoys celebrating the success of others, spreading positivity, and is often caught with a smile on her face. And she is definitely a small town girl.
If you’re checking out this podcast, you may have grown up in a house that didn’t really talk about mental health. Anxiety and depression didn’t exist, there was no talking about suicide or how to have hard conversations, and Trauma wasn’t a word that was used unless it had something to do with a medical injury.
Maybe you catch yourself saying,
“I’ve been through some sh*t, but I’m fine (and some is an understatement).”
“I have everything I need and want, so why I am feeling this way?”
Surrounded by people who told you, “Therapy is for crazy people” or “Therapy doesn’t work.”
Well, we’re here to to tell you mental health is real and therapy is definitely a thing. In fact, we hope that by listening to the Therapists Uncut Podcast you feel enlightened, validated, educated, and inspired to make your mental health a priority. Maybe even realize you’re not alone in your struggles and that you don’t have to be.
We want to make mental health relatable and a part of your everyday conversation. We want to normalize therapists (yes, therapists are people too) and normalize going to therapy. Because going to therapy doesn’t make you crazy, it means your actively working through the emotional sh*t we all have, and that’s commendable. So, if you’re up for it…
SUBSCRIBE to the Therapists Uncut Podcast and join off-the-clock therapists every 1st and 3rd Monday in spreading positivity and making mental health relatable through casual conversation, inspirational stories, and real talk with friends who happen to be therapists.
