The Adversity Advantage with Doug Bopst

Jul 21, 2022

Today’s guest is Terri Cole. Terri is a licensed psychotherapist. She's a relationship expert. She's an empowerment coach, author, and a total boundary boss. And I think this conversation is gonna help you out so much with all things mental health, relationships, boundaries, and more.    

We talk about the truth about narcissism and what makes one a narcissist, how setting boundaries in any relationship can save and strengthen it, why it is important to have a good relationship with yourself first and above any bonds, and so much more!
