#008 Your Love Blueprint and Sigmund Freud with Terri Cole

No one who disdains the key will ever be able to unlock the door.
— Sigmund Freud

In this episode of The Happier Hour we'll hear from psychotherapist Terri Cole about how Freud and the unconscious mind can help us navigate the murky feelings of LOVE.  Whether calming the monkey mind with meditation, unearthing our unconscious mind with psychotherapy, or trying to not go out our minds with dating in in the age of the app, this episode focuses on the cycle of unhealthy relationships. #thehappierhour
