This month: On the Other Side - interview with therapist, Sandi Rae
Sandi Rae grew up working in her mom’s Mexican restaurant in a small town in southern Minnesota. Growing up, Sandi always knew she was loved, but felt somehow ‘not good enough’. Despite her training as a mental health professional and her faith in God, she eventually acknowledged her need for professional help in her battle with anxiety and depression and was admitted to a psychiatric unit.
