The Reluctant Therapist: An artist's passion within and beyond their craft

   What starts out as a curiosity can become a passion and then on some occasions — a vocation. An artist’s professional life often finds them before they realize they have a gift. That’s the beginning of the story of touring musician, composer and producer Mike Blankenship. Host Elizabeth Barrett welcomes Blankenship for a conversation with this extraordinary keyboardist for the band Michael Franti and Spearhead, about his love of music, performing, being an activist for his community and role model for his son. 


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.
