Get ready to laugh (and cry a little bit) during this insanely relatable conversation between Krista and her actor-director-musician BFF, Joey Pollari! Krista and Joey chat about the ways we may be overusing “therapy talk” – a.k.a. things only you and your therapist talk about – in our relationships.

Instead of slapping labels on someone or going overboard with “honest feedback,” sometimes it’s best to lead with how we’re actually feeling. 

Krista and Joey recount stories of their own shortcomings in relationships as well as how they’ve grown in their self-awareness and communication skills.

At the end of the day, therapy is one of our greatest tools for evolution, but learning how to integrate what we do in therapy with our real-time interactions is the ultimate relationship game changer!

We also talk about:

  • Why birthdays are triggering 
  • Giving loving feedback in relationship
  • The HR-ification of relationships
  • Boundaries vs. walls
  • “Spiritual” people on dating apps 
  • Forgiveness + accepting people
  • The power of stating your emotions
  • Why labels aren’t effective tools for healing
  • Raising the bar in dating 
  • The myth of being “special” 
  • Going after your creative dreams
