Episode 016: Predicting Protection vs. Boundary Setting

10/18/2021
When we give ourselves the responsibility of predicting peoples’ needs, we also give ourselves the power of predicting peoples’ needs. It begins as a way of maintaining homeostasis and safety, but becomes a way to coerce people into feeling how you need them to feel. Not with ill intent, with the same quest for safety, just with assumed authority. Suddenly we're deciding what others need, "saving" them when they don't need any help and plowing right through their boundaries because we've...

Episode 015: Reimagining "Success" Through the Feminine

8/9/2021
Proving to yourself that you can overcome challenges is really important, but part of the human experience is also to be humbled by our own human limitations. We are not infinite in this version of life for a reason. Accepting that helps put an end to the daily reinforcement of those dirty old core beliefs cast in failure and allows in some new narratives, narratives YOU get to write. There are myriad ways to measure greatness; sport does not have a monopoly on that.

Episode 014: The Feminine Shadow and its Imprint on Relationships Part 2

5/27/2020
Codependency influences us to be responsible for making other people feel better. Success in that area is what can determine a sense of personal value, but this creates suffering. A more objective truth is that we can support each other but the work to quell our upset and evolve is ours alone. And boundaries – a trait of the masculine light – is where that healthy separation begins.

5/27/2020
Discussing behavior traits of the feminine shadow and their impact on relationships. When we’re stuck in the feminine shadow, our self-image is usually not great. Because it’s a darker manifestation of feminine light which is about relationship and community, when that healthy manifestation turns dark, it’s still about relationship and community but about us being on the outside of it, feeling disconnected from it, not allowed into it.

Episode 007: Mental Health as a Social Justice Issue

2/22/2020
People experiencing oppression are not generating illness from within, they're being poisoned from the outside and then punished for how they respond to that poison. If we, as therapists, don't let that part of the conversation into the room, we're going to pathologize the wrong part of the equation, we're going to make our client the "Identified Patient," and we're going to perpetuate their oppression.
