Where is the line where you end and another person begins? Why do we struggle to identify our limits? And how do we establish effective and healthy boundaries with the people we love, in personal and professional relationships, and even with ourselves?
In this episode Poorva and Dr. Tracy Dalgleish dive into understanding boundaries and why women especially, struggle with them. What's the social conditioning that gets in the way of us protecting our time and energy? How can we focus on what brings us meaning? And how do we communicate our needs so that we can show up as happier and healthier versions of ourselves?
Dr. Tracy Dalgleish, psychologist and couples therapist, helps individuals and couples navigate the challenges we all face in our relationships and within ourselves to create a more meaningful life through therapy, wellness seminars, and her work outside of the therapy room.
Dr. Dalgleish contributes to popular media sites, including Motherly, Huffington Post, Bustle, and PsychCentral. She has appeared on CTV Morning Live Ottawa and is a sought-after expert to speak on relationships and mental health. She has also published several journal articles in high-ranking academic peer-reviewed journals and co-authored two book chapters on attachment theory and emotionally focused couples therapy.
Committed to making what she does more accessible, Dr. Dalgleish is the host of podcast ‘I’m Not Your Shrink’ where she dives deeper into clinical knowledge and research in a relatable and informal way. She also offers other e-learning if you prefer to learn on the go, including an online community to help women and couples strengthen their relationships.
Dr. Dalgleish is the owner of Integrated Wellness, a mental health clinic in Ottawa, Ontario. She is the 2021 recipient of the Forty Under 40 award, recognizing her significant business contributions in the national capital region.
