Episode Description

I am thrilled to be joined on the podcast by the all-inspiring Ana Lennyr.  Ana is a Life Strategist Specializing in Relationships and Parenting Mentoring, as well as an Anti-Depression Expert. Ana believes that by addressing the root cause which holds people back, she removes any and all excuses and replaces them with reasons and opportunities. 

Ana Lennyr went through a few hardships in life like abandonment by her father, an alcoholic mother, insomnia for 2 and half years, a suicide attempt at age 19, chronic back pain and migraines for 27 years of her life, obesity, non-alcoholic liver hepatitis, poverty, and a depressed child. 

What makes Ana Lennyr unique is that she combines a teacher, psychologist, and parent experience with her anti-depression expertise. 

Ana Lennyr changes teens’ and adults’ lives in subtle ways without lecturing, confrontation or therapy. Her philosophy is simple: MASTER THE GAME OF LIFE so you will never be trapped in pain and hurt again.

In this episode, Ana and I chat about overall overcoming depression and we look specifically at depression in children and teens and mentoring for parents. This episode is very educational and can provide valuable insight into how to deal with depression. 

Ana’s energy is infectious and I could tell during our conversation how passionate she is about the work that she does. I was also close enough to see how big Ana’s heart is and how much love she has inside to give the world. 

Enjoy the episode, and a special thank you to my listeners for joining me on this journey. Stay tuned and keep listening.
