Episode 26: Loving Your Unique Body with Connie Sobczak
Connie Sobczak founded the organization, The Body Positive, in honor of her sister, to ensure that her daughter would grow up in a new world – one where people are free to focus on the things in life that really matter. It is a community that offers freedom from the suppressive and oppressive messages from society, that cause people to be in a perpetual conflict with their own bodies. She is the author of Embody: Learning to Love Your Unique Body (and quiet that critical voice!), and she has a Ted talk entitled, “Embracing Your Critical Voice: The Gateway to Self-love”, where she talks about learning to embrace ourselves, so that we are not derailed from our core truths. A truly fascinating and thought-provoking conversation- Join us!

Episode 25: Racial Injustices in Medicine
Racial injustices exist in the U.S., and the implicit and explicit bias that exists contributes to racial disparities in healthcare. I talked with psychiatrist Dr. Norman Reynolds, MD, about racism in the United States, and how it has affected the practice of medicine historically up until now – as it is one more reflection of the fact that we do not have equity in our country. During the pandemic, there was a disproportionate toll of Covid19 hospitalizations and deaths among minority populations, and it’s known that U.S. pregnancy deaths are up, especially among minorities. Philosopher George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Join us in this interesting conversation as we reflect on our history and our hopes for a better future for all.

Episode 22: What We Still Carry with Dr. Chris Fahrenbach
In this week’s episode, I speak with Dr. Christine Fahrenbach, PhD, about what we still carry in our lives. What if the truth has always been that we are all worthy of a beautiful life? Life can be stressful for all of us. But among people who have had trauma in their past and carry their trauma or remnants of it – including the stress from everyday – elevated stress levels are more common. The two main categories of trauma are commonly referred to as Big “T” and small “t” traumatizations. While Big T traumas can be seen as life threatening experiences, small “t” traumas are also painful and can include bullying, emotional abuse, difficult relationships, or loss of a pet. Join us in this interesting and insightful conversation as we discuss the possibilities of our lives!

Energy vampires are people who drain your emotional energy, and if you really have one in your life, it may feel as if they are feeding off of your life force. They are everywhere.

Lisa Campion and I talk about energy vampires! If you have someone in your life that constantly hurts you and drains you- you may have one in your life.

Episode 20: As a Black Woman with Sola Adelowo
Sometimes in life, we really can’t imagine what it’s like to be someone, unless we are in their shoes. Explicit and implicit bias exists. Racism exists, and with that, oppression. Sola Adelowo and I talk about her experiences as a black woman- in the U.S., Switzerland, and in South Africa. In a conversation that began after she had revealed to me that she was called the “N-word” by a white man, Sola talks about her own life. How can we honor all of humanity if we don’t recognize that not all are treated equally?

Episode 19- Child Sexual Abuse with Marybeth Beers
This is a topic that every parent should know about. If you are a survivor- how have you been managing your memories? Understandably – it is a very difficult topic. But it is so unfortunately common- when 1/3 girls and at least 1/5 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. And as many as 93% of victims under the age of 18 know the abuser. I speak with Marybeth Beers who, over 40 years ago, was sexually abused by her swim coach. She is here today, to talk about the impact that the experience made on her growing up and her adult life. Child sexual abuse is a significant but preventable public health problem. Although we may not be able to change the perpetrator, we can empower ourselves with knowledge and awareness- to prevent this from happening to our children, and their children.

Episode 18: Second Victim Syndrome- A Doctor's Hidden Struggle, with Dr. Berry Armstrong
The Second Victim Syndrome can occur when a health care professional makes a medical error and become traumatized by the event – manifesting psychological (such as shame, guilt, anxiety, grief, and depression), cognitive (such as burnout, secondary traumatic stress), and physical reactions that have a personal negative impact. And second victim syndrome may not necessarily be from a medical mistake, it can also be caused by a bad outcome for a patient. Dr. Berry Armstrong, MD, and I talk about second victim syndrome, the secret struggle of the medical professional as it is relatable to other fields, and how we can consider shining a light on our pain.

Episode 17: The Cautionary Tale of Ghosts with Jennifer Lyn
What if there’s an afterlife, and life is not just as we believe it to be? What if, at our death, going to the light as a spirit, is a choice? As Jennifer Lyn discusses in this interview, there are earthbound spirits who were once human. Some remain angry. Some want to be left alone or remain in the shadows. Some stay behind because they feel their life was unfinished, or perhaps they are still searching for something and are scared. As we think about the choices that we can make in our lives, perhaps healing is critical, lest we hold onto those emotions in our hearts and soul forever.

Abusers walk amongst us. In the U.S. - 1 out of 3 women and 1 out of 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner.

I speak with Ruth Darlene, who is the founder and Executive Director of WomenSV, which is an organization to help women who are dealing with a powerful and sophisticated abuser. These abuses are harder to detect, and her organization works to address and raise awareness on these subtle forms of abuse, which are demeaning, damaging, and distressful.
