From Weight Loss to Wellness with Britney Vest (@fittybritttty)

October 16, 2019

In this episode I talk to Britney Vest (@fittybritttty) about all things weight and wellness. We discuss her journey with her 85lb weight loss, starting with how she was affected by pressure to lose weight from a young age. She shares her experience of being in and out of Weight Watchers as a teen and her breaking point when she decided to make changes in her lifestyle. While her transformation is admirable, I was most interested in her qualities beyond her weight; namely her resiliency, confidence and zest for life. Today, she practices "wellness" without weight being the focus - and she has great advice for others looking to lead a more active, fulfilled life.

The Therapist Is In with Erica Basso, LMFT

The Therapist Is In with Erica Basso, LMFT

September 25, 2019

In this episode I talk to Erica Basso, LMFT about the pervasive issues women (and men!) are facing in today's world. We discuss the idea that lack of connection and community are at the core of many mental health and substance use disorders - and given that Erica worked in rehab facilities and I frequented them, we had much to talk about on that subject. Erica lays out the four most common challenges she sees in practice today - being anxiety, burnout, imposter syndrome and perfectionism - and explores their origins as well as solutions. 

This episode is packed with tips on how to live in the now, be more mindful, self regulate, change negative self talk and deal with general anxiety. It's also full of candid sharing about my own experiences with these issues. Enjoy!
