In this two part series Laurin and Rick, our team mental health therapist, discuss relationships: Romantic relationships, friendships and family dynamics. Oftentimes when clients are making diet and lifestyle changes, they run into friction with their significant others or don’t find approval from their friends or family members about their new goals. This affects everyone, but especially when a client decides to train for a competition. Laurin and Rick talk through what constitutes a healthy and an unhealthy relationship and how to navigate those changes so you can manage and thrive in your relationships.
