Therapist, yogi, trainer, and author Tim Gordon (aka The Zen Social Worker) is too damn smart for his own good... but also humble, kind, and willing to define big words for me, so I'm okay with it.
Hot damn, y'all. Words do not suffice to describe my interview with The Zen Social Worker, Timothy Gordon. This was probably my favorite conversation yet. Grab your notebook (or come back to the show notes after if you're driving), your tissues, and get ready for your brain to explode onto the ceiling as mine did during our call. (I am happy to report that I am now back in one piece.💁♀️🧠)
I can already say Tim will be a repeat guest — and on this episode, here's what we dig into:
I strongly encourage you to check out Tim's YouTube Channel, and his book (co-authored with Jessica Borushok) *The ACT Approach*, which won the 2018 Benjamin Franklin Award for editorial and design excellence in the Psychology category.
