Hey everybody. Jen Hatmaker here, your host of the For the Love Podcast. You guys, welcome to the show. I’m glad you’re here. I was certainly glad I was here for this interview. We’re in a series called For the Love of Therapy. We’ve had so many therapists on the show, but we decided to dedicate an entire series to having conversations with therapists and it just feels timely right now while so many of us are just picking through every manner of loss, change, sorrow, or both personally and in the world.
Dr. Sara Kuburic is known as being the very popular Millennial Therapist on Instagram, but she’s of course more than that. She calls herself an existential psychotherapist. She’s a consultant, she’s a writer, she’s a columnist for USA Today on top of being a nomad, which we’re going to talk about in a second. She is the author of a really great book called, It’s On Me: Accept Hard Truths, Discover Yourself and Change Your Life, which we’re also going to discuss. It just came out in September. Dr. Kuburic has lived in Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and currently Australia all in the last six years. She has a really interesting and beautiful wealth of knowledge about humanity, just from her own lived experiences. What she brings to the table as a therapist is clear how much she has been inspired by this specific brand of humanity that she has personally witnessed.
She sums it up with this line on her website, which I love. She said, “My interest in psychology stems from my personal experience living through wars, navigating complex relationships, and continually learning what it means to be human.” I mean, you can see why we love her and wanted her on the show. As you might imagine, her work has been featured in tons of outlets we love such as Oprah Daily, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Women’s Health, and The Guardian, it just goes on and on and on. She offers online therapy services that are grounded in honesty and openness with a dash of humor–my favorite. She specializes in identity, moral trauma, relationships, life transitions, and anxiety. So isn’t that all of us—at least a couple of those for sure. So Dr. Kuburic got the title “Millennial Therapist” from sharing tips that normalize human experiences and encourage self-reflection. Her Instagram is incredible, you’re going to want to follow her immediately @MillennialTherapist. It’s jam-packed with just excellent stuff. If you haven’t already, go give her a follow and I think you’re going to love this conversation. I found it honest and truthful and certainly hopeful. So, without further ado, enjoy my conversation with the wonderful Dr. Sara Kuburic.
