Ep #27: Getting Emotional Consent

Have you ever wanted to talk to a friend about a problem – not because you wanted advice, but just to vent – and they jumped immediately into telling you how you should handle the situation? Or have you ever done this to someone else? It doesn’t feel very good to be on either side…

Ep #26: Reparenting In Action

Reparenting ourselves is one of the most healing, transformative things we can do for our overall wellness. Understanding and tending to wounds that have been affecting us since childhood requires patience, self-compassion, and daily dedication – but I promise this process is so worth it. It can be hard to know where to start with…

Ep #25: Reparenting Your Inner Child

All of us experience scary, unsettling, or patronizing events when we’re children – often many times. Kids are incredibly sensitive to both sorrow and joy, and it makes sense that our early impressions of these emotions (and the experiences that are linked to them) stick with us well into adulthood. And sometimes, the adults in…

Ep #24: Emotional Adulthood

As adults, we sometimes do things that seem totally out of alignment with our grown-up sensibilities. Like flipping someone off in traffic, or having a meltdown about missing the train that’s supposed to take you to yoga class, or snapping at your family for being vaguely annoying. These are great examples of moments where we…

Ep #23: Emotional Childhood

If you’ve spent any time around kids, you’re probably familiar with their general fear of being in trouble, getting yelled at, etcetera.

Ep #22: Inner Child

If you’re an adult existing in this world, you’ve probably had a full-on temper tantrum at some point – one worthy of any toddler. Afterward, you might have even been bewildered at how upset you felt and why you had such a strong reaction, often to things that are actually pretty mundane: your boss ignoring…

Ep #21: You’re a Human Being Not a Human Doing

Self-care and self-love are some of today’s biggest buzzwords. These concepts, while useful at their core, have become associated with an external state: laying on a beach, unbothered by work or the rush of everyday life, soaking up nature (and maybe a fancy drink). It looks pretty nice, but this idyllic (and expensive!) depiction can…

Ep #19: Coping Mechanisms and Obsessive Thoughts

When we’re young, our brains come up with certain mechanisms to help us live according to our surroundings – or to keep our younger selves safe. However, as we grow up, these coping mechanisms can become less helpful and actually damaging to our everyday lives, making us anxious or afraid of the things happening around…
