Once you get self-compassion you are ready to thrive! Today’s guest is Dr. Tracey O’Connell, a “recovering” radiologist and mindset coach who helps people gain the courage to be bolder and more authentic in everything they do. She is a trained Integrative Health Coach, also a certified facilitator in a daring way using Brene Brown techniques. She worked in a private radiology practice for 16 years, stressed out, not feeling happy, and feeling that she was not good enough as a doctor, partner, and parent.
