Sweet but Fearless Podcast

Nov 15, 2022

In this episode, we talk with Cassady Kintner, a Marriage & Family Therapist whose passion focuses on helping people with complex, highly demanding medical conditions, particularly diabetes, to face the emotional and behavioral challenges that so often accompany chronic health problems.

During our conversation, Cassady provides insight into saying NO, navigating burnout, and the importance of how you communicate with yourself. Too often, we can belittle who we are by the words we choose to say to ourselves. As Cassady so wonderfully states, talk to yourself the way you’d talk to a loved one.
