Gold With Jeanette Schneider Episode 21: One Starfish At A Time: Mental Health and Anxiety with Elizabeth Scrivner

Elizabeth lost her stepson to mental health issues as an adult and was later moved to advocate for suicide prevention and mental health. She spent the last year of her life on a mission to bring awareness and conversation to this issue as a proud advocate. Elizabeth talks about the layers of grief and her own “grief space” as well as the conversations we need to have with not only our friends and relatives, but the children in our lives who are on the front lines.  

As a licensed professional counselor for over 20 years, Elizabeth is committed to changing the stigma that therapy is for crazy people, even if it is one person at a time. She is the CEO of Park Cities Counseling, recently appeared on the hit Bravo show, The Real Housewives of Dallas, where she is a therapist to one of the housewives, and is considered #americastherapist on both national radio and television around the country. She offers Concierge Counseling using FaceTime, phone sessions, personal travel coaching and counseling in home, or during travel by plane or longer car trips allows flexibility to her clients without disrupting their already busy schedules.  

Elizabeth talks through ways in which we can review our values, our ways of relating and treating those we love, and digs deep into anxiety.

I love Elizabeth’s honesty, her faith and her desire to help move mental health into mainstream conversation. 

Please follow her on Instagram @elizabeth_scrivner or her website at parkcitiescounseling.com.  Elizabeth and I talk about doing deep work which is the cardinal point of my new book LORE: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future. Get into the work with me. LORE is available now available on Amazon and barnesandnoble.com.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 19: True Grit and Grace with Amberly Lago

Amberly Lago almost lost her leg in a tragic motorcycle accident. A fitness expert and runner who was once signed with Nike, Amberly faced the loss of her career and her identity. With sheer grit and determination she faced over thirty surgeries, but after successfully keeping her leg she was diagnosed with the nerve disease CRPS, also called “The Suicide Disease.” Living with pain every day, she found herself asking her doctor to then take the very thing she saved. It was then that she realized “This is the rest of my life,” which caused her to put together PACER, a toolbox for overcoming obstacles.

In our time together, Amberly shares the steps of PACER 

Perception

Acceptance

Community

Endurance
