If it were possible to decrease the stress levels you experience in relationships by applying one principle, would you want to know what it was?

What if you could increase the amount of personal power you feel in your interactions and overcome barriers between you and the significant people in your life?

On today’s episode of Growth to Freedom I’m talking with my good friend Dr. Cristy Lopez about healthy boundaries. 

Cristy is a clinical psychologist who has been helping people become more successful in their own lives, relationships, and businesses for over 20 years. In Cristy’s work with individuals she often sees her clients break through barriers and limitations, eliminate unhealthy ineffective patterns of thinking and behavior, and get on the path to a more successful and healthy life. Many times those changes come through the understanding and implementation of effective personal boundaries.

On this episode Cristy and I chat about the difference between barriers and boundaries, why knowing the difference is vital to healthy relationships, how you can set yourself up to win in relationships, why peace and safety are a direct result of healthy boundaries, overcoming the tendency to be a people pleaser, and so much more.

Toward the end of the show I issue a challenge to you, asking you to take the bold steps needed to develop even better relationship habits so that YOU can experience the peace, safety, and settledness of mind you deserve.
