The Reluctant Therapist: Is Mother's Day good for moms?

Mother's Day is certainly a boon for the florist and greeting card industries - but does the second Sunday in May really benefit the women it claims to honor? The intention is to celebrate and acknowledge the efforts of the person who has done more for you than anyone else - but is the ideal of a sacrificial Mother really in the best interest of the mental health and well-being of women? Tune in Tuesday at 2 for a conversation with Elizabeth Barrett, the reluctant therapist, about how to really value and show appreciation for the moms in your life.

Elizabeth Barrett is a wife, mother, licensed marriage-family therapist, educator, eavesdropper, emotion worker, and mental health consultant. She uses all of these skills to address the subjects that we all struggle with in this conversation with the Reluctant Therapist.
