Today, I’m thrilled to introduce Dr. Sara Kuburic! Known as the millennial, therapist, she is an existential psychotherapist, consultant, writer, and columnist for USA Today. She is passionate about helping people seek change and live authentic, free, and meaningful lives. 

In her work, Sara places a firm foundation in values like openness, honesty, trust, and humor. Her expertise lies in guiding individuals through the complex terrain of identity exploration, addressing moral trauma, navigating relationships, coping with life transitions, and managing anxiety. Her overarching goal is to empower individuals, enabling them to live authentically and freely, foster healthy relationships with themselves and others, facilitate healing and personal growth, and ultimately unearth their life’s purpose.

In this episode, we talk about the concept of self-loss that Sara addresses in her new book “It’s On You,” the concepts of taking radical responsibility for our own healing, and how we can start to find ourselves, love ourselves, and work towards creating an authentic life we truly love.
