The Love Fix

Jul 28, 2023

Sherry and Carla take a Love Fix Question from a listener who is tired of dating, is feeling burnt out, and wondering if they should take a break from the dating scene or keep plugging away. They then welcome guest Ana Maria, who is not the typical standard template kind of life coach. Ana Maria is a healing strategist with a thirst for problem solving, and a keen passion for root cause solutions. Today, she has transformed her pain into purpose, and now she's here to serve others who want to do the same. She talks with Sherry and Carla about healing from a breakup, getting to know and love yourself, and setting boundaries when starting to date again.
