Guest Interview on Only Trying to Help Podcast

I had the privilege of being a guest on another podcast. Dr. Kate Watson lends tools from the counselor toolbox to everyday people who want to speak more compassionately and courageously toward the people they love. Dr. Kate Watson hosts the podcast Only Trying to Help. Her podcast reaches out to well-meaning people who want to help their loved ones and others and seeks to give them tips on how to be more helpful.

In this episode we talk about how to address someone with addiction in a more helpful way rather than some of the ways that often get used. I had a great time with Kate and felt like we’d known each other far longer than just doing an interview. I think you’ll love her style. She has 6 seasons of episodes that she has done along with her cohost Leslie Ballway.
