Episode Date
EP06: On Boundaries and Accountability, Part 1
50:37

Sarah Rice and Therapy Jeff are back with the first half of their two-part conversation on boundaries and accountability. This first episode is all about defining, understanding, setting, communicating, and respecting boundaries.

Jeff breaks down why setting boundaries can be really difficult and how we might gaslight ourselves into thinking our desire to set boundaries is asking for too much. But really, a boundary can be a "gift or a little map" to tell someone else how to be a good friend, lover, co-worker, or family member (because boundaries aren't just for romantic partners).

Sarah and Jeff model a caring, loving way to set boundaries, and Sarah shares her "Relationship Mad Libs" which is a template you can use when you need to establish a boundary in your life.

We also get introduced to Sarah's superhero alter ego that she calls in to do the hard stuff. Her name is Rogue Carbonara, and she's a boundary-setting badass.

We want to hear about your superhero alter ego! They're your favorite superhero combined with your greatest weakness. Jeff's is He-Man Algebra, but we're still workshopping that one.

EP05: Ten Questions for a Healing Relationship
54:16

Sarah and Therapy Jeff have been talking a lot about grief and how to deal with it when a relationship ends. Now, they're shifting gears a bit to talk about how to make sure your next relationship is a healing one. We all have fears and insecurities that follow us from one relationship into the next, but as Sarah says in this week's episode, "rather than letting those fears and worries and doubts grow legs," it's important to get them out in the open before they become too overwhelming to address. To help do this, Jeff poses ten questions you can ask yourself and your partner at the start of a new relationship to make sure you're both feeling safe, seen, and supported. Questions like, "What didn't you hear enough of in your last relationship that you would like to hear more of in this one?" and "What's your biggest relationship fear?" These questions might be just a bit too intense for the first date, but you'll definitely want to keep them in your back pocket so you can pull them out on the fifth or sixth. We also learn a lot about our hosts this week, like what animated children's movie the two share a deep love for, and why you shouldn't bother inviting Sarah to Coachella.

EP04: When Is a Red Flag Really a Red Flag?
54:36

This week, Jeff is sharing his list of "9 Completely Normal Things That Don’t Have to Be a Red Flag in a Relationship." For example, is it a red flag if someone holds a place in their heart for an ex? How about wanting to go on vacation without you? Is perpetually fighting about the same thing a red flag? (Look, Jeff just wants to go watch basketball by himself. And Sarah is definitely going to text you back... eventually.) This week is all about the tricky aspects of a relationship that make us stop and wonder if we're with the right person. What do you think? Did any of your usual red flags make Jeff's list?

EP03: How to Feel Your Feelings
50:42

This week, Sarah and Jeff go on a journey that runs the full spectrum of human emotion. Jeff starts by telling us about a really hard decision he had to make recently, which leads to a thoughtful discussion about grief and why it's so important to feel your feelings, even–and especially–the more difficult ones.  As Sarah says in this episode, "Grief helps you explore more of the human experience." Jeff breaks down parts work and Internal Family Systems therapy, and Sarah explains why it can be helpful to identify where and how in your body you feel particular feelings. Sarah also tells us how a mosquito bite and Tommy Lee's penis made her reflect on the tattoos she got when she was a younger person. This revelation brings up some other questionable decisions our hosts' younger selves made, like when Jeff wore suspenders with baggy pants and Sarah rebelled by going through a ska phase.

EP02: Wants and Needs, Saying the Hard Thing, and How Your Parents Loved You
53:27

Sarah's a happy camper, literally, and Jeff doesn't get what's so great about sleeping in the dirt. Sarah claims camping is a great way to see a different side of your partner–for better or worse. Sarah and Jeff talk about the importance of understanding and articulating wants and needs in any healthy relationship, but what happens when you realize you and your partner want and need different things? As Jeff says this week, "The cliché is true: relationships are hard work, but how hard should they be?" Apparently, how your parents loved you when you were a child has a lot to do with how you love others as an adult. In fact, the first two months of life are the most important when it comes to being a securely attached, emotionally intelligent adult. Sarah's mom carried her constantly for the first few months of her life, which Sarah claims is the reason she isn't a serial killer. Sarah reminds us that even though our coping and survival strategies can become our superpowers, "Batman can't be Batman all the time."

EP01: Dating as an Adult, Creating Love, & Navigating Narcissism
49:56
Sarah Rice, AMFT and Jeff Guenther, LPC are here with the first official episode of This Changes Everything! They're talking about dating as adults and the ways that creating love for other people comes from inside you. Sarah breaks down the ways that an identity crisis sent her back to The Challenge. Jeff shares how narcissistic tendencies aren't necessarily a bad thing, but offers a caveat about how to manage them. They describe how being a therapist doesn't mean you've got your whole life under control, but it does make you more aware of how you move through the world. Jeff tells us how blowing up on TikTok has affected his relationships, and Sarah tells us how a mango almost made her cry, and they start diving in on online dating stories. Sarah and Jeff have so much to share with you, and they're just getting started!
