Mental Health + Boundaries to Help You Survive the Holidays

This episode was recorded on November 30, 2021 in anticipation for our virtual conference, A Deconstructed Holiday. To view this session and other sessions on Healing from Religious Trauma at the Holidays, Creating New Traditions, and more, join our Facebook Group A Deconstructed Holiday.
On this episode, we discussed how to implement boundaries so that you can make it through the holidays with your sanity in tact! We covered what boundaries look and sound like, and talked through several scenarios that you may face and gave you tips on how to walk through those situations.
Trigger Warning: We discussed several scenarios that involve mental, emotional, and physical abuse.
Amber Diamond Green is a nationally certified licensed clinical mental health counselor in a private practice setting in North Carolina. She works mostly with older children, teens, and young adults. Amber approaches mental health from a holistic perspective seeking to understand the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of each client. She seeks to understand how this may effect their perspective and growth in their therapeutic journey. When Amber isn’t practicing counseling, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends and traveling.
Lexie Smith is a lifelong human rights activist after surviving sexual exploitation her entire childhood and the lifelong effects of that abuse. She is a first-generation college graduate with a degree in Psychology and runs a business as a trauma-informed consultant to those interfacing with survivors of violence.

About the Podcast

Touchy Subjects Podcast
The Touchy Subjects Podcast has been designed to unpack the proverbial elephants in the Church- i.e. the topics no one wants to talk about! We want to create space for an open dialogue on issues like social justice, mental health, women in leadership, homosexuality, legalism, and more. 

The panelists that are speaking on this podcast have been intentionally chosen to tell their story from their perspective without censorship. Some panelists are pastors or church leaders, some panelists are deconstructing their faith, and some panelists are subject matter experts on a topic whose guidance can help this audience.

Our mission is not to expose the Church, but to have conversations that will open eyes, open ears and open hearts toward growth, healing, and unity.
