MS9: This is Your Brain on Burnout with Carissa Weber, LPC

Meg and Carissa Weber, LPC get all brainy about burnout.

· 01:10:01

About Today's Show:
Attention brain science nerds, this episode is for you! In this interview, I sit down with Carissa Weber, LPC, aka @thatdarnamygdala, to talk about all of the fascinating (and tbh, kind of terrifying / awe-inspiring) things that happen to our brains and bodies when we're under stress. Carissa talks about how the effects of stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue manifested in her mental and physical life, and she goes into depth about the cascade of physiological responses our bodies have to stress—even the good kind (it's called "eustress"). Carissa also offers up some quick-to-use methods that can help us give our brains & nervous systems a break during the day.

About Today's Guest:
My name is Carissa Weber.  For the last 10 years, I have worked as a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a clinical substance abuse counselor (CSAC). I have always been drawn to mental health, especially how the brain impacts our mental health. Not only does this topic have meaning to me professionally, but it also has personal meaning. Through my life, I have struggled with anxiety, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and now, the stress of wearing multiple hats in my life (wife, mom, therapist, and aspiring equestrian). It is my goal to share with the world the science behind mental health so people have the most up-to-date information about how to improve their mental health and have the quality of life they deserve.
