My guest today is Jill Stoddard PhD. Jill is the founder and director of The Center for Stress and Anxiety Management in San Diego, CA. She has a PhD in Clinical Psychology specializes in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for anxiety and related issues. Jill cohosts a great podcast called Psychologists off the Clock which I highly suggest for anyone interested in topics related to ACT. She also is an author and has written two books including The Big Book of ACT Metaphors and Be Mighty: A Woman’s Guide to Liberation from Anxiety, Worry, and Stress Using Mindfulness and Acceptance. 

In this episode we explore:

  • The role that ACT has played in Jill’s personal life 
  • The inspiration for writing her book “Be Mighty”
  • Anxiety and anxiety disorders
  • We discuss the story behind Jill’s recent Ted Talk
  • And explore the role of Imposter Syndrome in the writing process
