When I met Dr. Shannon South the first thing I noticed was that she just radiates joy. We became fast friends and were the loudest people in the corner of a quiet little restaurant in Asheville, North Carolina. She has the best belly laugh and doesn’t hide it which is so refreshing. She joins us on Mental Health News Radio to talk about her work as a counselor, her books, her play workshops, and how to radiate Joy!
Dr. Judith Orloff joins us on Mental Health News Radio. Her new book The Power of Surrender and her upcoming workshop in Big Sur, Ca: Surrender to the Power of Your Intuition were on our minds. As our guests know, each show is a journey. Dr. Orloff rolled with it because that is who she is and we got into the topic on the minds of all of our listeners: Empaths.
Join us on the empath super highway with Dr. Judith Orloff.
Join us for an hour with Kim Saeed of LetMeReach.com. Kim is doing some incredible work in the field of narcissistic abuse recovery. We are excited to spread the news and talk about how body image plays a role in being a target of narcissistic abuse, what being an empath means, and how to protect yourself from emotional predators.
Having the article It’s Not Always Shame, Sometimes It’s Depression written by our next guest, Hilary Jacobs Hendel, come across my desk was a serendipitous event. We had no idea this article was one of the New York Times most popular articles in 2015. Hilary joins us on Mental Health News Radio to talk about her upcoming book, her work as a counselor, and her time as the mental health consultant for Mad Men.
KidsPeace came on our radar while we were researching organizations that offer family support for autism treatment. Little did we know how incredible and expansive this organization is and how they are serving all of the needs with their Behavioral Health services. Join Chis Ferry and Robert Martin for some awareness, some enlightenment, and some positive action towards reducing mental health stigma.
Sandra L. Brown, M.A. joins us on Mental Health News Radio. We can’t top that sentence. The volume of work, information, healing, education, and advocacy that has come from one of the original clinicians working with Narcissistic Abusers and Survivors is, quite frankly, legendary. It’s always a pleasure when I really connect with a guest on the show. Sandra is definitely a kindred spirit that has worked tirelessly to help survivors heal from psychological trauma. Enjoy getting to know her in our intimate format and learn from the healer that created the movement finally getting the attention it deserves.
Darlene Aiken joins us on Mental Health News Radio to talk about what it means to be an empowered female entrepreneur. It was so refreshing to speak to a peer. We have a similar makeup and drive. Both of us love our work and we also have to pull ourselves into things outside of work to nourish our personal lives. Darlene is a powerful woman that takes excellent care of her clients who are peak performers while continuing to foster her own success. Join us as we discuss what it means to be an excellent business woman who fosters excellence with her clientele.
LISTEN TO THE SHOW!
We all have ups and downs because our brain is designed to work that way. Our happy brain chemicals are not meant to be on all the time. They evolved to reward survival behaviors by spurting when you see a way to meet a need. The spurt is soon over and you have to do more to get more. That drove your ancestors to do what it takes to keep their genes alive, over and over. Your ups and downs are easier to accept when you understand the brain you’ve inherited from your ancestors. You can turn on your happy chemicals in new ways when you understand the pathways that control them.
Join us as we interview Dr. Loretta Breuning to discuss her book and her ground breaking work on the Habits of a Happy Brain.
Many of our guests have mentioned Robert Weiss. His books are utilized in treatment by clinicians all over the globe. We thought it was time to go straight to the expert on addiction. Robert graciously accepted our invitation and we’ll enjoy hearing him speak at the National Conference on Addiction Disorders in August 2016.
Today we talk about sex addiction. Of course – we go off topic because that’s what we do on Mental Health News Radio. Each show is a journey and Robert graciously jumped on the train with us!
