This is episode 77 and today I’m here with Dr. Cassidy Freitas talking about Boundaries.


Dr. Cassidy Freitas is a mom to three, California based Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice and host of Holding Space podcast.


Define: We define what boundaries are.

Requests versus Boundaries: We speak to the distinction between a request and a boundary.

Acceptance: We share our struggles accepting the reality of a person or a situation to get to an effective boundary.

When: We explain how to know when to hold a boundary or how to decide if a boundary is warranted.

Reactions: We go over why it’s important to not let fear of intense feelings showing up prevent us from holding essential, values-aligned boundaries.

Posture: We offer advice for having those hard boundary-setting conversations and share how we can best set a boundary.

Replace: We discuss when it can be helpful to offer a redirect with a boundary.

Receiving Boundaries: We speak to how we can receive boundaries in a healthy way.


Boundaries are one of the things we often work through in the Sage Family Village, so if you find yourself craving more personalized guidance after listening to this episode and hearing us flip everything you thought you knew about boundaries upside down, join us in the Village and do this work in community.
