Mindset: The Guy Podcast Ronnie Fernandez, LCSW

By Ronnie Fernandez, LCSW
Individual interviews of Men discussing some of their life's specific challenges telling us how they were able to overcome big, small, and everyday challenges. These challenges can often lead men into Anxiety or Depression.

My goal with this podcast is to help men better express their feelings and frustrations by listening to different men. Much too often men hold their feelings in and isolate themselves, drink too much, or show aggression. I hope you enjoy listening to these incredible men and their stories.
