Setting healthy boundaries can have a huge impact on our emotional, physical, and spiritual health. And yet, it can be difficult to have and maintain healthy boundaries, especially in the face of a serious illness like cancer. On this episode of Five to Thrive Live, psychotherapist and author Cherilynn Veland, MSW, LCSW, will provide listeners with some practical information on how to set and keep those healthy boundaries.

For those of you who don’t know Ms. Veland, she is a self-advocacy expert, coach and counselor who works with women and men. Her focus is empowerment, self-care and healthy life balance. Cherilynn’s insight and perspective are the result of 20-plus years of counseling, therapy, and consultation with individuals, couples and organizations. She has a master’s degree in psychiatric social work and shares her insight weekly on her website www.StopGivingItAway.com. In addition, her book, also titled Stop Giving It Away will be coming out in April 2015. She is the owner of Lincoln Park Counseling in Chicago, and she is excired to talk about boundaries and how they can be an important part of your Five To Thrive Plan.
