I want MORE- the compulsivity and impoverishment of MORE
In this episode, we are going to peak around the corners of our desire for MORE. Many of us have shame with wanting more- we have acted out compulsively to buffer the pain of emptiness. We can confuse an anorexic life for a recovering life. And although interrupting compulsive activities, like overdrinking, eating, shopping, sexing is a good thing we can become entrapped in the other extreme, that MORE is bad, dirty, or not available. Learning to become safe enough to receive more from the world and give more to the world is where the medicine of healing shows up. Join me for a short, interesting conversation.

How to Break Free from the Imprisonment of Shame
As Jung said, "Shame is the swampland of the soul." Today, I share with you the faces of shame and what we can do to help discharge shame. If you are stuck, often shame is lurking behind the corners of your psyche. Often, we feel like we have to attack and fix our shame, but this punitive response only enslaves it. Helping people learn to untangle shame's unconscious patterning and to find joy with becoming seen, just a little bit, is my life's purpose. Join me!

Why We Need Imagination to Transform
In today’s episode, I discuss the difference between fantasy and imagination. Fantasy is used to numb anxiety, helplessness, and powerlessness. In contrast, imagination requires us to work with reality and transform our struggles. When we are sensitive, overwhelmed, and immobilized by stress, we need more imagination. Listen today to learn how you can start using your imagination to see your problems differently.

Today we are going to talk about habits. Habits mean our nervous system has learned something, but NOT always consciously. Sometimes we develop habits that we are NOT even aware of until it becomes a problem or until we UNTANGLE it. Habits are a big part of who we are, And what we do habitually determines who we become in the future. We are going to talk about short-term habit formations and identity-based. Much focus in the self-help and behavioral therapy world is centered around behavior modification. However, the Untangle Method drills into the unconscious patterns of identity change to help create space for a more meaningful picture to arise.

Memories: Traumatic Memories and Good Memories
Today we are going to talk about memories- traumatic memories and good memories.

Join me today as we discuss what forms of therapy help to process traumatic memories and why this is critistical. Also of importance is how to reclaim the good memories to help us realize our life more fully. This is such an important and meaningful episode.

How to Love Yourself Even When A Part of You Screams NO
Most of us have a difficult time celebrating ourselves, even more so out loud or with others. A traumatized body doesn't allow receiving. It screams F*ck you. I can't. I won't. So imagine trying to get this body receptive to loving yourself, celebrating victories, and elevating worthiness. It can't. If anyone struggles with concepts, such as, Love Yourself, Let Go, and Be Proud, join me. As I walk you through the Untangle Method, we will recognize the part of us that can't receive and also locate the part of us that can.

Difficult Family Members
Today, we will discuss how to change your response to difficult family members. Tis the Season for celebration, as well as, stress, heartache, and triggers.

Living on Purpose
In this episode, we are going to deconstruct purposeful living. We often need a new framework to realize our purposeful life. It is NOT a one-time event, but a process. Often, when we are stuck or have unresolved relational trauma, we leave behind resources, skills, and talents that can serve us well today. Part of the job is remembering the good experiences from the past, not the traumatic ones. Join me!
