    Psychotherapy, the Pulpit, and a Room full of Feral Cats - Ep. 16

    James_North.jpg
    On Episode 16 of Psych Rally, James North, Pastor at Pasadena Christian Center talks about being diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as an adult. After being told that his only career option was working at a local mill in Oregon, James has fought to discover his true passion and potential. Pastors aren't always known for vulnerability and honesty, but James gets real with Martin about how therapy has improved his self-esteem, why Religion and Psychotherapy need not be at odds, and what people in Oregon really think of people from California. There may even be another Star Wars reference.
