The Love Fix

Apr 14, 2023

Sherry and Carla start the show by talking about what they like to do for exercise, and the beauty of just getting outside and going for a walk. They take a Love Fix question from a listener who realizes they only like emotionally unavailable men, but can’t seem to stop herself and turn things around. Then, they welcome Dr. Elizabeth Fedrick, a Licensed Professional Counselor, relationship expert, and multi-unit group private practice owner in Arizona. She is trained in various therapeutic modalities and specializes in relationships, intimacy, trauma, depression, and anxiety. In addition, she hosts a relationship-based podcast, Relatable Relationships Unfiltered.
