Thrive: Mental Health and the Art of Living Free

Dec 23, 2022

Hi Friends!

Merry Christmas y’all! This week, I'm sitting with my real-life friend, Michelle Nietert, to talk about helping our kids end the year well. We also talk about what it is like to be a parent and some of the struggles that each of us has gone through this year.

Michelle Nietert, M.A., Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, has provided therapeutic interventions to children and their families in counseling offices for over 20 years. A recognized expert in Solution Focused Therapy, she is the clinical director and owner of a large counseling center in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Michelle's writing can be found on the MOPS blog, Lifeway's Parenting Magazine, and she is the Mental Health columnist for Just Between Us Magazine. To discover more about Michelle as Your Mental Health Coach, the Raising Brave Beauties podcast, and her energetic speaking expertise that empowers and inspires, please visit

In this episode,  we discuss the following:

  • Review the year with your kids- what went well and didn’t?
  • Ways kids struggle with confidence.
  • How to allow our kids the freedom and the voice to speak their truth?
  • Practical tips from Michelle and myself on how to help our kids manage their own stress and anxiety.
