Welcome Director of Security Donna Li Puma

We are pleased to welcome Donna Li Puma as our Director of Security for Mental Health News Radio Network. Donna has been providing us with her unique perspective on how to ensure the safety of our interviewers at conferences for some time. We have now asked her to join our team because of the unique understanding of mental wellness she learned through her career and personal life experiences.

Donna’s career in law enforcement was as an officer in New York, New Hampshire and Florida, where she earned certification as a firearms instructor.  She is very proud to have been selected to work in the first private police force for the Olympic Games and with President Reagan’s body guard team during his first term. She also served a tour of duty with the U.S. Army’s Military Intelligence Branch. After discharge she worked for the Federal Aviation Administration in Miami as a Detective, Internal Investigator. She was called back to active duty after 9/11 and had assignments in both Desert Storm and in-country Iraq, reaching the rank of Captain. A full resume of her career in this field includes work as a Federal Computer Crimes Investigator, a Special Agent and more than fifteen years in military intelligence.

We are proud to have Donna on our growing team and look forward to her presence at all venues (even if no one but our team knows exactly where she is).

Is Narcissism Psychological Viagra? Join Counselor Andrea Schneider and Host Kristin Walker

 

One of the most damaging psychological mechanisms an extreme narcissist will use in their tormented tool chest is SEX.

THE PROMISE OF IT

THE MECHANICAL ACTION OF IT

THE WITHHOLDING OF IT

We carefully use the word sex in relation to what happens because, to the narcissist, the beautiful act of making love is an impossibility. Sex is one of their most powerful weapons of your mass destruction. If you are a highly empathic person with an abundance of compassion, an intoxicating imagination, and issues around appropriate boundaries, you are the perfect meal for the emotional impotence of a narcissist.

On this episode of Mental Health News Radio author and counselor, Andrea Schneider, joins host Kristin Walker to discuss the relationship between narcissism and sex. In her book, Soul Vampires: Reclaiming Your Lifeblood After Narcissistic Abuse, Andrea takes readers on a journey through the phases of the romantic journey with a narcissist. She shares her expertise with us on the show and in co-writing the blog article to accompany this highly charged subject.blog-talk-radio

The Team Around PACT (Program for Assertive Community Treatment): Ellenhorn.com

ellenhorn

Zoi Andalcio and Lisa Copolla, part of the counseling team discuss with our host, Kristin Sunanta Walker, the impact that working with and for Ellenhorn.com’s mental health community has made in their lives. Prakash Ellenhorn has changed it’s name to “Ellenhorn”. This change has absolutely no impact on the level of care that we provide or how we work with our clients – it is simply just a change in the name itself.

Earlier this year, Dr. Ross Ellenhorn purchased the company from his business partner, Dr. Madhavi Prakash, on very good terms. Since then, our team has been spending time thinking about a new name, and decided on Ellenhorn. Prakash Ellenhorn is widely recognized and held in high regard within the mental health community and with many business partners – and we did not want to lose the name recognition entirely.

With the launch of our new name comes a significant branding transformation. We have a fresh new look that emphasizes our philosophy at Ellenhorn: rebuilding purposeful lives through compassionate care. Having spent years in Arlington, getting to know the specific historical culture of our town, we have also decided to revisit our residence’s old roots and re-name it “The Brackett House,” as this better represents the house itself.  Please visit our brand new website – www.ellenhorn.

Chronicles of a Ghetto Rose with Artist Moise Morancy

morancyMoise Morancy is a 21 year old American actor, director, hip-hop recording artist, poet, writer and activist from Brooklyn, New York.  He’s best known for his acting roles/projects and his hardcore, thought provoking, uncensored rap music. A tough exterior and with good reason, he often expresses that it derives from pain and hardship. He likes to say “without change, one cannot grow” and the ability to do both are some of his greatest attributes.

Who he is begins with his mother. She is an educated woman who came to America for a better life but her goals were derailed by a man who knowingly gave her the AIDS virus, that man – is his father. In the early 90’s, his sick mother was abandoned by his father and left homeless as she gave birth to Moise. Luckily, he was born without the disease. To say God is good would be an understatement! Though God is great, the road to success has not been easy. He truly believes it’s been difficult for a reason, to teach him the importance of family and love. It has given him a purpose in life. And that purpose is to be an entertainer!

It was our privilege to spend an hour taking a deep dive with Moise into his background, his career, therapy, and his advocacy. Please enjoy his interview below:
