Feeling lonely and socially awkward can be incredibly tough. In “Life Quakes”, a young woman opens up about her struggle to make friends. She’s tried joining clubs and going to events, but still feels like she doesn’t fit in. Host Jessica Reyes and guest therapist Joann ‘JoJo’ Venant offers advice and helps viewers understand how social anxiety can make connection feel impossible.

Challenging Negative Thoughts

Sometimes our own thoughts and beliefs make social situations more difficult. A therapist can help identify and work through those negative patterns.

It’s okay to start small! Joining a virtual group or simply going to an event and observing can be a first step on the journey.
