The Mindful Corner Podcast

Hosted by clinical psychologist Dr. Erika Velez, The Mindful Corner is a series of candid conversations with everyday individuals from all walks of life–single parents, college students, career professionals, roaming travelers, and more–who share stories in the hopes that we can earn from each other and, simultaneously, grow together. Have you ever experienced a moment in your life that felt isolating and hopeless? Did you wish you could connect with someone who was dealing with the same emotions you felt? Although our experiences as individuals may be unique, there's far more that we have in common than what separates us. The Mindful Corner will be our place to have authentic and raw conversations about the human experience while discussing the gift of mindfulness and how we can all benefit from some time in a mindful corner.
