If you’re like me and you need a visual for some things, my friend Josh has a YouTube channel. He’s also Jake’s older brother, and I’ve mentioned him in a few blog posts. He’s a licensed psychologist in Indiana with a weird sense of humor. You might even see his adorable kids in some of the videos. (He’s a dad of four.) His videos cover topics like anxiety, depression, and suicide prevention.
