Episode Summary:

Hello and welcome back to Let the Rest Burn with The Evolved Therapist. I am thrilled to be joined today by two amazing women, Emily Palacios and Stephanie LoVerde, who are the hosts of the Cycle Chats Podcast. Their show is about empowering millennial women to challenge societal norms and redefine what it means to be a woman in today's world. As we dive into our conversation today, I want to acknowledge that these discussions often bring up strong emotions. I find that tears are a natural part of many of these conversations, whether due to the depth of feeling involved or the vulnerability of the topic. And today, as Emily and Stephanie share their personal stories with us, expect to experience both. So get ready to be moved and inspired as we hear from these two incredible women. As always, I can't wait to hear your thoughts on today's episode.
