Show Notes

Today’s podcast is the second installment of the “In My Backyard” series: STORIES. Patricia speaks with former Guidance Center client, Lexie, about her life, the experiences that led her to treatment, and what it’s like receiving treatment as a young person.

Before coming to The Guidance Center, Lexie struggled with feelings of depression, anxiety and being disconnected from herself or from her body. She worked closely with her therapist, Dr. Chloe, to build insight and process difficult emotions, develop coping skills and learn grounding exercises to help her overcome the hardships she endured. Lexie is strong, confident and she wants to share her story so that she may give hope to others who are struggling.
