Jeren Montgomery recently completed an MA in clinical psychology and is working towards becoming a marriage and family therapist. He is also working on the “front lines” of the pandemic in a nautical-themed grocery store. He talks about the adjustments everyone had to make to deal with the Covid-19 outbreak and why he’s uncomfortable with people thanking him for “his service.” He and Bridget discuss his long journey towards psychology, overcoming addiction, becoming sober, and how often their brains try to lie to them and tell them they’re not really addicts. They cover the lack of men entering the field of psychology, some of his weirder experiences at a ultra-progressive school when getting his degree, the need for resilience, and how therapeutic coaching might help a whole generation of men who are struggling to find their voice.
