#222 The Disconnection of Inauthenticity feat. Danielle Craig
The first time I learned I couldn't be my authentic self in the world was in second grade when I wore a Barney shirt to school. Yep, you guessed it, so not cool. It's instances like that where we learn to not be ourselves, to be small and to shrink ourselves into what works for others.  In this conversation, I'm going to share what happens when our authentic self is disconnected from our public persona and how to bridge the gap.  If you feel like you've been getting smaller and smaller to fit the needs of others - then this conversation is for you.

#209 EMDR Explained feat. Melissa Dumaz, LMFT
"You don't have to tell your whole story which can be painful. The beauty of that is you don't even have to have all the memories and details of your whole story and still be able to get some good work done. The beauty of that is you don't even have to be ready to talk about your story as long as you're ready to go inward because a lot of the work is happening inward. We're just prompting the brain and the body to do what it does naturally, which is to heal." - Melissa Dumaz, LMFT Melissa Dumaz is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Best Selling Author of The Love Challenge, co-host of The HatsPodcast and founder of You Help You, her own practice.

She also helps clients deal with grief & loss, relationship satisfaction, parenting, transitions in life, self-care management and more. Today we talked about EMDR. I loved learning all about EMDR from Melissa. She explained how EMDR helps with trauma (what "counts" as trauma), how EMDR works and who it can help. This is a fascinating conversation.
