Confidence is not a personality trait. It is a skill. And everyone has the ability to hone it. 

And it's important that we do. Because our self-esteem impacts every area of our life. It impacts...

  • Our romantic relationships - are you avoiding physical intimacy because you're self conscious about your body?

Sep 27, 2022

Summary 

I have a confession to make...

I am a holistic health coach and I have always struggled with maintaining a regular meditation practice. 

Even though I know the endless benefits proven by study after study (which we cover in depth in this episode). 

Even though I've always had a gut feeling nudging me towards more intentional meditation.

Even though I've experienced the benefits of doing meditation-like activities like going on long walks, coloring, and yoga.

Episode 156: 3 Ways You're Sabotaging Yourself Before the Day Even Starts

Jun 07, 2022

Listen In 

Summary 

I want you to take a moment and think about how you spend your morning...

For most of us, our morning routine is the most consistent part of our day. We wake up at the same time, eat the same food (or we don't eat at all), and go through the same steps, day in and day out.

But by existing in this state of autopilot, we're missing out on a huge opportunity to set ourselves up for better choices, more energy, and a better mood all throughout the day. 

See, our brains like congruency. So if we...

Episode 142: Lessons From My Therapist

Mar 01, 2022

Listen In  

Summary 

I thought I had my shit together. 

I mean honestly... I had stopped dating assholes, I was a generally pretty happy person, I had a thriving business, and a good family. 

So why the hell did I need to see a therapist?

Because somewhere along the way I realized fear was running almost every part of my life.

Sure on the outside everything seemed fine, even to me!

But upon closer inspection (which let's face it, the pandemic kind of forced us into such reflection), I realized that I...

Episode 114: How We Heal from Trauma (With or Without a Therapist)

Aug 03, 2021

Listen In

Summary

The last 2 weeks we've talked about how trauma affects the brain (giving you an external locus of control, reduced impulse control, and impaired memory) and how trauma affects the body (reduced metabolism, fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease, just to name a few). 

And after hearing all that, you may be feeling a bit hopeless, wondering if your past trauma is going to define and limit the possibilities for your future. 

It isn't. Not if you're willing to do the work. 

Now before you click away thinking 'the...

Episode 113: How Trauma Affects the Body (Hint: Yes It Can Influence Your Weight)

Jul 27, 2021

Listen In 

Summary

My narcissistic relationship triggered my autoimmune disease. 

Yes there were certainly other factors at play: diet, genetics, birth control. 

But for years I couldn't speak my mind for fear of retribution. For years I was on high alert, unsure what would set him off. For years I felt like I was crazy, having every word twisted and turned against me. 

My body's defenses were chronically waging war against the ever-present emotional threat and eventually turned on me, attacking my own thyroid...

Jul 20, 2021

Summary

For years I've said that the negative emotions and experiences we don't process and release get stored in the body. Sometimes as fat, sometimes as illness, sometimes as injury.

It always sounded 'woo woo' when it came out of my mouth, but finally I've discovered a book that scientifically backs up this intuition. 

'The Body Keeps the Score' by Bessel Van Der KolK, MD, is one of the most comprehensive books I've ever read on trauma, how it affects the brain and body, and how to heal...

Summary

"When you're not used to being confident, confidence feels like arrogance.

When you're used to being passive, assertiveness feels like aggression.

When you're not used to getting your needs met, prioritizing yourself feels selfish. Your comfort zone is not a good benchmark." - @cosmicteaholisticshop

A friend shared this quote with me recently and boy did it hit close to home. 

I've been a passive people-pleaser most of my life, and while I've spent years working through that in therapy, my limits have been...
