Dr. Nicole LePera, better known as @the.holistic.psychologist, is a clinical psychologist who is well-known for sharing inspiring content on Instagram to give people the tools they need to take healing into their own hands. Her new book “How to Do the Work” just became a New York Times Best Seller, and we’re grateful to dive into her philosophy of mental, physical, and spiritual health that equips people with the tools necessary to heal themselves today on the podcast! Even though it’s called “self-healing,” no healing is truly done in isolation; it takes a village. We talk about learning to lean on others without falling into codependency patterns, creating positive boundaries, and setting up expectations in your relationships. Wherever you are in your healing journey, Dr. Nicole is going to help you do the work.

We also talk about:

  • Developing communities for self-healing
  • Balancing self-guided healing and healing through others
  • Realizing where to define boundaries
  • Finding your childhood archetypes
  • Taking the mask off and being yourself
  • How to make a meaningful, heartfelt apology
