Understanding Surrogate Partner Therapy

Today's guests are Angela Porter, licensed professional clinical counselor, and Andrew Heartman, certified surrogate partner. 

On this episode we explore the dynamic between surrogate partners, clients, and therapists. We identify ways that this can impact how a person relates to others, provide healing, and change lives. Andrew shares how being a surrogate partner has impacted his personal life, and together we work toward de-stigmatizing surrogate partner therapy so it can become more accessible.
