Why The Resistance Needs Therapy

If you’ve been feeling anxious, overwhelmed, shut down, angry, hurt, or scared since the new administration took over, you’re not alone. We’re dedicating this episode to sifting through some of what this political chaos and noise stirs in us and how we can show up and fight the good fight while practicing self-care so we don’t have to escape into the Alaskan wilderness. As our guest Kip Williams says, “you can’t have healthy movements without healthy people.”

Featured Guest

Kip Williams is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in San Francisco where he specializes in treating sexual minority men with depression and anxiety as well as a number of other issues. Before becoming a therapist, Kip was a dedicated activist for LGBTQ rights and co-directed the 2009 Equality March on Washington.
