Sugar, Butter, Therapy and Walking Toward Your Dream - Desi Oakley (Broadway actress, Singer-Songwriter)

Desi, who has played several roles on Broadway and in National Tours (including Jenna in Waitress and Roxie Hart in Chicago), talks about how she found incredible growth while her industry was shut down during the pandemic.

She opens up about her father's suicide when she was 19 and how the lines have sometimes been blurred for her between performance and making choices that serve the self she has come to love.

I so appreciate our dialogue about her shifting relationship with anxiety and learning to *dismantle urgency.* We share many practical tips for increasing mindfulness and mind/body awareness! I also ask her what role as an actress has been the most emotional and we are all better for hearing her courageous response.

Therapy Highlight: How to discern our personal values and allow them to guide us!
