AMAC - Breaking the Stigma Around Therapy


Meet Confident Human Alex Maceda. Her friends call her AMAC. At her core she is an artist, writer, and all around creative person who has spent most of her career in consumer start-ups. In this episode we talk about her diagnosis with clinical depression; how someone else’s willingness to be vulnerable gave her permission to seek help; her experience with therapy; how hard it is to find a good therapist; how speaking openly led her to a job opportunity; how she believes there is a higher ROI on self care hours than work hours; how has decided to take a risk to do what she loves the most, create art as a full time artist.
