In this episode, we welcome Westwind alumni Ryan Wynder to the podcast. Ryan is a licensed marriage and family therapist who manages private practices in Las Vegas, Nevada and Meridan, Idaho. Ryan and Austin discuss the impact COVID-19 has had on both adults and youth and how parents can help their children build resilience and personal competence during uncertain times, overcome self-doubt, and maintain good mental health and well-being despite challenging times.
