Liz Life Guru is a podcast designed to help my listeners with mental health issues and problem solving. This is an action oriented show that helps the listener understand the dynamics of their issues. This is achieved through education, personal experience and science based evidence. That we can all understand. 

Your host Liz Reed is a licensed therapist. She has a long history of working in addiction and in the mental health field. Liz is also in recovery from alcohol for the past 17 years. 

I feel that there is a method to the madness, that a good laugh can cure many ills. I feel that there is hope for everyone with the proper support and guidance.  I will help you to create a journey through life that is your own, one that you enjoy, not one you have to white knuckle through. Life should be ever evolving and interesting. Don’t stay stuck, you’ll be able to relate to the many stories and descriptions of how mental illness and trauma shape who we are. 

I’m here to make sense of the senseless. I’m a problem solver and also a great cook. Join me for a unique look at what’s bugging you. See you on the pod !

Namaste.. …
