The Inner Edit

Dec 8, 2021

Today I’m joined by Dr. Ilene Cohen, psychotherapist, author, and mother of two. She is one of the most respected voices in the psychology of people-pleasing and navigating the difficulty of living an intentional life while trying to maintain fulfilling relationships. We talk all about people-pleasing - what is it? Where does the behavior come from? What are the consequences of living this way? How do we heal and move on from people-pleasing? And more. We also talk about self-care, anxiety, burnout, and ambition in motherhood and family. 

“People-pleasers always think, ‘I need to do everything by myself and then if I’m overwhelmed or tired there must be something wrong with me.’” - Dr. Ilene Cohen
