Do you find yourself running into issues with the landscape of today’s dating culture? There’s so much toxicity out there with swipe culture. Not only that, but a lot of people are also sabotaging good relationships with toxic traits. The truth is that healthy relationships take work, and that’s exactly why I had to bring on today’s guest, John Kim. John is an author and a licensed therapist who practices transparency and shares his own story (which is not the norm in the therapy industry)! He talks about how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting dating culture. He shares his own experience of learning to surrender. We chat about what people do to sabotage their relationships and how your “relationship buds,” like taste buds will change over time. John also shares how to figure out the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship. 

About John Kim:

John Kim is an author and licensed therapist who pioneered the online life coaching movement eight years ago, after going through a divorce and rebirth. He started a blog called The Angry Therapist and quickly built a devoted following of fans who loved the frank and authentic insights that he freely shared on social media. He pulled the curtain back and showed himself by practicing transparency and sharing his story, something therapists are taught NOT to do. Kim became known as an unconventional therapist who worked out of the box by seeing clients at coffee shops, on hikes, and the gym. He quickly built a coaching team of his own and launched a sister company called JRNI COACHING, an online coaching school. Kim’s current obsession is sending out thousands of daily texts to change the way we change.
