Mary's new book is a blending of memoir, science-based research, and a practical Complex Trauma workbook & Addiction Recovery Healing Guide. In it, Mary shares her story that in mid-life, she discovered the root cause driving her struggle with relationships, health, and work, and her past struggle with alcohol, drugs, food, and severe obesity was a condition known as Complex PTSD, a more severe form of PTSD that developed from her being raised in a chaotic alcoholic home. This discovery sent her on a five-year journey where she researched leading experts in the fields of C-PTSD, neuroscience, developmental psychology, adverse childhood experiences, and addiction medicine to find the most effective treatments for optimal healing. As she embarks on her trauma-healing journey, she shares experiencing one mind-blowing revelation after another as she learned C-PTSD was operating behind the scenes sabotaging her weight, recovery, relationships, career, and health.

Sex Worker Alcoholic Turned Successful Relationship Coach Tells All with Hannah Spanke

On this episode of More Than Therapy, Felipe Blue, LCAS, CSI has a discussion with Hannah Spanke. Hannah Spanke, the host of F**k Yourself Happy, is introducing a special edition of the show that will focus on her personal experience in the sex industry. She has been a sex worker of many different types for nearly a decade, and she wants to provide an honest and complete tell-all about her journey in the industry. She starts off with a fair trigger warning for those who might find the subject matter uncomfortable and then dives into a recap of her journey, starting from the beginning and continuing until now. Sex work is one of the oldest industries in the world and yet it is often assumed that it is something one would only do out of desperation. This assumption is pervasive, and yet, people are fascinated by it. There is a dichotomy between how people view sex work and how they actually consume it. People have a natural understanding that it is not something someone would choose for themselves, but it is something people are drawn to and engage with in some capacity. It is both intriguing and taboo. This conversation is about the idea that people are quick to be interested when it comes to somebody else's story, but they rarely consider it when it comes to themselves. The speaker then goes on to briefly explain their childhood, which included a mother who struggled with drug addiction and a father who was a single dad from the time the speaker was five years old. The speaker then emphasizes how their father was their main influence and how they now understand that everyone is doing the best that they can with what they have. The speaker reflects on their experience growing up with an emotionally unavailable father and how this affected their development. They recall a particular experience when they were nine years old and had a sit-down conversation with their father. This conversation had a lasting impact on their understanding of the world and their identity. They recognize that the stoic and toxic masculine model their father presented was not the ideal role model for them and that it led to trauma and dysfunction. They emphasize the importance of having a positive role model in order to foster healthy development and understanding. --- Send in a voice message:


Healing Abusive Brain Chatter with Jacquie Elliott

On this episode of More Than Therapy, Felipe Blue, LCAS, CSI, interviews Jacquie, who states: "What if I told you that you may be living with an emotional abuser and that it might be you? Abusive Brain Chatter is that voice in your head that acts as a bully to keep you from taking risks or becoming who you were meant to be. We'll learn the ABCs of Abusive Brain Chatter from our guest, who is a life coach and writing a book on the subject." TIPS: Social Media: NAME: Healing Abusive Brain Chatter, How She Left Her Emotional Abuser with Jacquie Elliott DATE: 2023-02-02 -------------------------------------------------- SUMMARY: Mrs. Elliot is a life, spiritual and relationship coach who specializes in helping people explore their thoughts, feelings and experiences in order to gain self-understanding and awareness. On this episode of the Mortar Therapy Podcast, she speaks about abusive brain chatter, and whether or not one can be standing with an emotional abuser, or if they themselves are the emotional abuser based on their abusive brain chatter. Mrs. Elliot explains that the mind is a very interesting thing, and one must be mindful of what they tell it. She then introduces her ABC program, which is an innovative way to address trauma, especially emotional trauma. It is designed to help people recognize their negative self-talk and work on replacing it with positive affirmations. The program focuses on building self-compassion and understanding, as well as developing a healthier relationship with oneself. Ultimately, it helps individuals take control of their own minds and emotions to achieve a more balanced state of mind. The speaker used to talk to themselves with negative thoughts that were learned from their parents and school. One day, they were in bed with a remote control in one hand and a box of Frosted Miniwheats in the other, watching TV and binge eating. They realized at that moment that they needed to start a journey of self-healing and growth. Through twelve Step programs and the help of a spiritual center, the speaker was able to be kinder to themselves, make amends with themselves, and ultimately open a successful business that they were able to sell. The speaker is a life and spiritual coach who helps people overcome negative thoughts and feelings that are holding them back from reaching their goals. As part of her work, she has looked into the amount of thoughts people have each day and found that 80% of them are negative. She has made it her life's work to help people combat this negative brain chatter and find a more loving and understanding voice within themselves. She believes that until people can access that higher power, they won't be able to make the changes they want to in their lives. The speaker was discussing how the realization that the negative self-talk they were using was a form of emotional abuse was a pivotal moment in their life. They defined emotional abuse as bullying and belittling oneself, as well as dismissing compliments and negatively commenting on one's looks. They then highlighted the importance of awareness, writing down one's self-talk, and then believing in a higher power to be able to cure the brain chatter. They shared how they needed to rely on a higher power on their own journey, and how they got on their knees and asked for help. -------------------------------------------------- TIMESTAMPS: 0:00: --- Send in a voice message:

Failth and Mental Health with Camille Brown-Lowery and Felipe Blue, LCAS, CSI

Spirituality and religion often provide a sense of security and social structure and those beliefs can be a strong coping mechanism through trying times. Being an active member of a close-knit religious community can provide structure, support and sense of acceptance, all of which are beneficial to mental health. Lack of spirituality can interfere with interpersonal relationships, which can contribute to the genesis of psychiatric disturbance. Psychiatric symptoms can have a religious content. For example, the loss of interest in religious activities is a common symptom of depression. #projectpassport #kaleidoscope #spirituality #mindfulness #mentalhealth Brought to you by Camille Brown-Lowery and Felipe Blue, LCAS, CSI of More Than Therapy.

Helping Does Not Have to Hurt (Life Coaching and Executive Coaching) with Sam Shapiro

Sam says "I'm a passionate coach, consultant, speaker and facilitator who comes alive in service of those who live to serve others. My practice serves mission driven leaders, healers and helpers in their work to heal the world without harming themselves. Since 2013 I've coached, taught and consulted with leaders and healers in community clinics, acute care hospitals, mental health programs and a pandemic response center on their path toward elevated impact greater fulfillment, and enhanced wellbeing for themselves, their teams, and the people they serve." "As a mission-motivated empath, a first generation college graduate, and the child of two beautiful and complicated humans who left home in their early teens and survived by the skin of their teeth, I've always had a deep sense that my purpose was to be of service to others. Thanks to my own experiences of perfectionism, inherited beliefs from my parents that life has to be hard to be meaningful, internal pressure to make something beautiful from the hardship they experienced, and naturalized norms of burnout just being "part of the job" in mission-driven work, I'm all too familiar with the struggle between being a whole and happy human and having the impact we feel we're meant to have in the world. My clients are walking a similar path. They are leaders, healers and helpers who get out of bed in the morning to be of service to others and have unwittingly eroded their own thriving in the process. I know that it’s my calling to coach mission-driven leaders like me in health care and the caring professions. Though the social impact sector is infamous for cultures that normalize privileging everyone else’s needs above our own and valorizing burnout as a sign of mission commitment, our mission can only endure as long as our own wellbeing does. The COVID crisis and the resulting impacts on both our mental and emotional health have forced us to recognize that supporting resilience is literally a matter of life and death. We can’t afford to consider investing in our own growth and thriving a luxury for when times are stable. Without it, we operate completely from the toxic combination of our self limiting beliefs and unconscious unhelpful habits, harming our own wellbeing, the wellbeing of those who look to us, and our ability to effectively serve our community. Both our individual wellbeing and our effectiveness as leaders HAS to start with us leading ourselves. This is the wild, messy, exhilarating and invaluable work of balancing our being with our doing. This is work I'm committed to doing for myself. And this phase of my life is about helping mission-driven leaders, healers, helpers, and the organizations they work in do the same. Mission doesn't need to mean martyrdom. Helping doesn't have to hurt." #burnout #lifecoach #mentalhealth #wellness #recovery Hosted by Felipe Blue, LCAS, CSI of The More Than Therapy Podcast located at 201 W Main Street Suite 316, Durham, NC 27701. --- Send in a voice message:


Breaking Free From Abusers Who Are Drug Users with Sandy Johnston

"As someone who was caught in a cycle of abuse with someone who had an ICE addiction who lost the plot at one point and things became life-threatening for myself and for my children, so I am no stranger to this topic. Three things I advocate for on my podcast are for women to put their safety, sanity and well-being first by tapping into the right support to remind them that everything can be figure-out-able no matter how complex the challenges are that they are going through. Although my wake-up call came that I possessed the keys I needed to be free from a domestic violence situation, people fall victim to all sorts of destructive cycles that ultimately hold them back and stop them from moving forward and achieving their hopes and dreams. It is easy for us to become victims to all sorts... victims of circumstance, victims to oppression, victims to abuse, victims to substance abuse, victims to self-sabotage. For me what I discovered is that under the layers of being a victim, whether it was to someone else, something else or by my own limiting beliefs, I ultimately held the keys that I needed to be set free." - Sandy Johnston Website: Facebook group: Facebook: #domesticviolence #relationships #parenting #healing #mental health Hosted by Felipe Blue, LCAS, CSI of The More Than Therapy Podcast located at 201 W Main Street Suite 316, Durham, NC 27701. --- Send in a voice message:
