What a fun podcast with Guy Macpherson, PhD on The Trauma Therapist Project talking resilience and mental health! We recorded this a few weeks ago, and it’s now live on his site HERE. You can also access it directly on the PodCast.
There is a crack, a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.
Why was I on Guy’s show? Well, I’m a Denver-based holistic health and wellness counselor. I’ve always loved guiding people to better choices, and I did that first as a U.S. Marine Corps officer. Now, as a mental health professional, I mentor people and organizations around the country to help them find clarity and discover how to live happier, healthier lives. On the show, we talked a bit about those topics as they have appeared in both my professional and personal life.
Pain is a pretty universal experience – life has kicked all of us in the teeth at least once. How do we learn to get back up well, though?
As a mental health professional, I get really energized during one-on-one counseling sessions and by leading resilience workshops teaching others how to do that – “get back up” and how to do it in an authentic, serving way for them. You know why?
Because I think in most cases people aren’t as far off as they think they are, and that it’s really important to begin a collaboration by focusing on what is going right and what my clients already know. I use really simple, evidence-based principles to help people tune into their intuition and refocus their energy.
If you are interested in working together individually or with your organization, please don’t be shy about reaching out. I’d love to connect!
