Summer Lovin’: Attachment Theory + Dating with Jason VanRuler

Today on the show we are talking all about Attachment Theory. I came across my new friend, Jason VanRuler on Instagram and his resources have been so helpful for me! We’re joined by my friends Shayna and Sam as we talk about each of the different attachment styles, how they impact our relationships, and what moving toward secure attachment looks like. This was such a helpful conversation and I’m so thankful for Jason, Shayna, and Sam’s honesty and friendship!
