189: Honoring Your Mental Health with the Millennial Therapist Dr. Sara Kubric

by neeta bhushan



“I think we’ve weaponized mental health as well, to an extent. Like, it’s become a thing we talk about or say as a way to avoid responsibility sometimes. And that’s what I don’t love. And, you know, that does that’s so disrespectful to individuals who are genuinely struggling.”
–Dr Sara Kuburic

Who are you really when you struggle with your identity and face your truths? As a child of immigrant parents and navigating trauma, Sara opens up on the profound insights that led her to where she is today. She also gives a sneak peek into her new book, which is the guide we all needed growing up. Dr. Sara doesn’t hold back as she discusses what ‘self-loss’ really means and how it silently pervades our daily lives. Ever felt lost in decision-making or disconnected from your own body? You’re not alone, and this episode is about to change the way you think about these struggles.
