In this conversation with the Reluctant Therapist, Elizabeth Barrett speaks with guests Chris and Breanne Burkard. They speak candidly about their life, their struggles, their joys, and how they've learned to "make it work" for over a decade.

There has been a great deal of writing, discussion and research in the past three decades around the topic of depression, and how we think about this distressing and prevalent mood disorder. What if everything we believe about depression is wrong, and everything we are doing to make it better is actually making it worse? And what if feeling depressed is actually our new normal—and feelings of joy, hope and happiness have become just fleeting experiences that we enjoy through certain times in our life? Tune in Tuesday at 2 p.m.

Therapy can be a bit overwhelming for some people. There's so many kinds out there. And everyone wants to find the best kind of therapy and best therapist for their needs. In this week's conversation, Elizabeth Barrett discusses the world of psychotherapy and answers your questions about what kind of therapy is best for you.
