This week on THE JANUS ADAMS SHOW: Psychiatrist and Mindfulness Coach, Dr. Karinn Glover, MD.
"I dig for information about how people got through challenges – especially oppression" says Dr. Karinn Glover, MD. "Because, the more I feel like everything we’re facing is new; the more I’m reminded that it is not. For people who have had traumatic experiences, I help them to figure out their story; to put together their narrative, because putting experiences to words is healing."
