On today’s show, I have the privilege of speaking with Ann Marie Dobosz. Ann Marie is a licensed marriage and family therapist in the bay area, and the author of The Perfectionism Workbook for Teens. In this episode, she shares real life examples of what perfectionism can look like in ourselves, and the young people in our lives, and how we can work with the inner perfectionist, starting with recognizing the ways in which it’s holding us back, and then how we can work with it to create healthier thought processes and habits.
