12: Leading with Anxiety
Show Notes

Can you imagine growing up in a family of psychologists and experiencing anxiety and depression as a teenager? 

Ayelet, saw a therapist, read books, and talked to people. She did all of the things she was supposed to do. But in between those therapy sessions, she used to feel so alone and so anxious.

She had the ideal environment and support, but it wasn’t enough. She discovered she wasn’t having a breakdown during her sessions with her therapist, it was the in-between moments in life. 

After experiencing both anxiety and depression for a decade, Ayelet is passionate about tackling these issues that can often control someone’s life. Just as she has learned to combat anxiety and still continues to daily, she has dedicated her mission to help those suffering from anxiety and depression just like her (while pursuing her  Master’s in Clinical Social Work Program).

We’ll explore: 

  • What it’s like to grow up in a family of psychologists while experiencing anxiety and depression. 
  • Why certain techniques were only temporary in her battle.
  • How our thoughts, actions, and feeling impact us our journey. 

You’ll discover: 

  • How she stopped spiraling and now has more good days than bad days.
  • Her sliding glass door moment when she jumped into the arena of vulnerability.
  • What most people get wrong about anxiety and how to help others who have anxiety and depression.
