Trigger Warning: THIS REAL TIME HEAL WILL DISCUSS CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE. Crystal is an incredible, brave, and insightful soul. When she was five, she suffered abuse at the hand of a friend's father and her life was never the same. After living with the remnants of that experience for her teen years, she married young into an abusive relationship. …
 
So often we walk through life reacting and responding to situations, with no idea that it's not just "the way we are". Trauma responses are ways of behaving that are created and informed by the trauma we experienced as we grew. It's important to note that trauma need not be only Capital T Trauma like severe abuse and neglect. Children sustain traum…
 
I met Hannah Matluck of The V Hive (formerly The Women's Pelvic Pain Podcast) somewhat randomly a couple years ago when she wanted me to speak as an expert on her podcast. Little did either of us know how much that one interview would change her life. Hannah transformed her entire message to a mindbody approach, healed after years of suffering, and…
 
I have been in the grips of physical and mental "control addiction" for a lifetime. Well, for most of a lifetime. Through loving, patient, and consistent work on myself, I have been able to let it go to a large extent. Control begins as a kind defense mechanism allowing us to perceive "fake safety" as a way to get through life. But when we become a…
 
Anyone who knows my story from the beginning has heard the name Janette Barber. Janette was Rosie O'Donnell's producer in the 90's, when Rosie's show was topping the ratings. She was also in a motorized wheelchair as a result of pain that no one could cure or understand. Through sheer desperation, Janette agreed to let Rosie put her on the air, ple…
 
I have a complicated relationship with the word "miracle". Although I balk at any religious connotation, or implication that a "miracle" implies something bestowed upon us (rather than created BY us), I can't deny the miraculous quality of the healing I've experienced and seen in my work. Today I indulge in a juicy miracle story of my own about my …
 
Liz grew up in a religious home with very few choices on what she could think, feel, or do. Her journey led her to uncover some deception which opened her to a new path, and also a lot of chronic conditions. Gratefully, Liz came upon this work and is finding her way. Today we got together to discuss it all, and so much beautiful truth was revealed.…
 
Wow, did I get a response from my Instagram Community when I posted a video on fawning! Like me, so many of us fall into the pattern of this trauma-responsive people pleasing behavior in order to keep ourselves from further trauma. Unfortunately, without awareness, this fawning response is stealing our self-worth, and requiring us to repress many e…
 
Who doesn't love a success story?? This one made me smile from ear to ear. I swear my face hurt. Ann has a beautiful understanding and respect for this work, and was so brave and patient as her sweet MindBody system allowed the pain and symptoms to work through her. It's such a privilege to see my work give someone their life back, or perhaps give …
 
There is a difference between fear (and other big feelings) that are meant to alert us to real distress, and those that are simply sent by the Nervous System as a result of the *perception* of danger. Today, we parse out which is which, how to know, and what to do in the moment to transform uncomfortable feelings and physical sensations into peace.…
 
Another beautiful REAL TIME HEAL. Sophia is only 28, but her body has felt much older. Join us for a poignant and healing conversation about childhood struggles, debilitating back and hip pain, and panic attacks that changed the course of Sophia's journey. Today she is on her way in the right direction, but wanted a little clarification and support…
 
Every moment is an opportunity to manifest fear and stress, or peace and presence. We just don't always know how to do this, as we are stuck in the small boxes of our own perception. This can be further exacerbated by fear and frustration, depending on the situation and our mindset. So much of this predicament can be transformed in the power of the…
 
Lisa and I sit down for another epic conversation about the magic of this work. We named this episode "What Happens After the After Picture". As a society, we are obsessed with the before and after, the makeover... the result. But what happens when human life doesn't have a result? What happens when the human condition is a lifelong experience? Thi…
 
You may have heard the story of JournalSpeak before, but probably not like this. Today I dig deep and tell you the emotional story of JournalSpeak's birth, as well as explain more details in order to help you to go deeper into your own practice. This is not about motherhood, or even about me. It'd about all of us: how we suffer, and how we learn to…
 
Amazing. Incredible. Moving. Authentic. I could go on. I freaking love Real Time Heals. It is such a privilege to sit with a brave soul and allow some capital T Truth to come out and be honored. This conversation is one for the books. Kimberly has been through quite the journey, and shows up here for you totally present, and willing to heal. Once s…
 
So often as human beings, we are hard wired to go go go. We want to achieve, to be "done", to check the box and get the A. Even if you aren't that kind of a driven person, most of us are still pretty desperate - when we are feeling bad - to feel better. We want to be well. We want a finish line. The problem with this very natural human posture is t…
 
The moment I heard the symptoms and description of what has come to be known as "Covid Long Haul", I knew it was TMS. I have been treating brain fog, chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, burning throat and mouth, and myriad other related symptoms for years. As soon as people align themselves with the belief that all of these ailments are being…
 
Today on the pod we tackle one of the biggest obstacles to human personal peace - pre-grieving. Pre-grieving is when we worry about future events (and the pain and suffering connected to them) to such an extent that we steal our ability to be present in the moment, and actually enjoy our lives. It is a problem to some extent for all people, but esp…
 
Year ago when I met Dr. Sarno, he explained to me why he no longer prescribed Physical Therapy. He said that when people focused so much on a "physical solution" for an issue that has an emotional genesis, they would be blocked from healing. I agree with him, when we look at it like this. And, over years of practice, I have realized that there is a…
 
Hello loves. Today on the pod we talk about the essential work of boundary awareness, setting, and enforcing (holding). This is not just true of physical and mental boundaries. Setting emotional boundaries within ourselves (figuring out what is ours and what is someone else's) is imperative for mind/body health. Join me as we discuss this complex a…
 
What a lovely Real Time Heal this was. Shannon has dealt with TMS her whole life - she just didn't know it. Headaches for days, chronic strep throat, and more. She was just always sick. Then when she was 14 she was diagnosed with Plaque Psoriacis, and it's plagued her for a lifetime. No treatment worked, and she tried everything. Nothing worked, th…
 
Pema Chodron says, “Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.” Today on the podcast, I share with you my thoughts on compassion, why it's…
 
It's not every day you hear a story like Kitty's. Lost in fear and the confusion of the medical model, Kitty endured multiple unnecessary surgeries and grim diagnoses. On the brink of giving up completely on life, she found this work and did it like a warrior to save herself. Today, Kitty lives a life of endless possibilities with NO CHRONIC PAIN. …
 
Hello lovely people. Today we tackle a big topic when it comes to growth - accepting that we need to turn and face our obstacles, not run from them. Indeed, it is the only thing that allows us to grow. Ram Dass gives incredible lectures about "working the curriculum" of a human life, and his words have inspired this podcast today. Join me for an ey…
 
Happy New Year fam! Who's sad to say goodbye to 2020?? I know that 2021 won't magically bring peace, but I for one am just going to look ahead and look up. Today I bring you a moving (beyond) and inspiring conversation with Jonna, a young mother who was in the grips of chronic pain for years, and is now free. I love to watch people walk this journe…
 
MERRY CHRISTMAS to my peeps who celebrate! On this xmas episode, I share with you a great gift in my own life: my meditation practice. I thought I was a fast moving quick thinking crazy person who could never ever meditate. Gratefully, I was wrong. The factors that lead to success: dropping the perfectionism, old beliefs about myself, and resistanc…
 
Growing up with a severely abusive alcoholic father and battered mother has left its emotional scars on Angela. She hit a wall in her 30s and her body simply shut down. She was wracked with all over body pain diagnosed as fibromyalgia, as well as many other symptoms. After doing her JournalSpeak work like a total warrior, Angela has been able to fr…
 
I know we feel disordered when we are anxious, whether the anxiety shows up physically, behaviorally, emotionally, psychologically, or all of the above. We feel disordered, and it disorders our lives. Yes. But anxiety, in itself, is not a disorder. It is the manifestation of a lot of fear, helplessness, and a nervous system that is seeking to prote…
 
I met Caroline at an incredibly low time in my life, and her light and wisdom helped to lift me out. I have deep respect for her expertise, empathy, and grace in guiding people through this work. For those of you who've heard of JournalSpeak Integrative Specialists, that's Caroline at the helm! She's also an instructor at all of my live and virtual…
 
Happy Podcast Day and Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans :) Today we talk about a really timely topic for this "hurricane season" of the Holidays - how to be with family and friends, and tolerate any anxiety and conflict that might arise without needing to repress our emotions in an unhealthy way. This is not easy, but it's very doable with …

She has lived through so much in a short period of time, and with the help of this work is well on her way to freedom from all of her chronic symptoms. Even before we met, Bri was able to completely eliminate her IC, Pelvic Pain, and related issues with her …
 
Today is a great chat on the concept of acceptance, and letting our ugly parts belong with us rather than shoving them away. Originally from the work of Tara Brach, I love the concept of "let it belong". Tune into the pod today for an in-depth explanation of it and much more. XO n. Remember to sign up for the waitlist if you are interested in takin…
 
I met Elizabeth Kott of That's So Retrograde 2 years ago when she invited me onto her podcast to discuss Freedom From Chronic Pain. Little did we know that it would also launch her into a journey to confront her own dermatitis and eye issues which had been so limiting her life at the time. Today Elizabeth and I discuss this winding path for her, ma…
 
So much of the anger and resentment we carry for others is due to our own lack of boundaries and self care. This is not your fault, but it is within your power to change. If you find yourself resenting others' happiness and feeling unseen and unheard, consider that perhaps it's time to rethink the ways you meet your own needs. Today on the pod we h…
 
The first time I spoke to Dani on this podcast (ep #66) she was in the midst of an awakening - for the first time in 3 years (when at times she'd been in a wheelchair to manage her back pain) she had been pain free for a number of weeks, and she was astounded. This did not happen by chance. Dani is a warrior for the work, and she didn't turn her ba…
 
Sometimes on the podcast I share really personally, about my own journey and the things that have been setting me free lately. Today is one of those days. The biggest barrier in healing the wounds of childhood is making the mistake that being perfect today takes away the ache of the past. I have been guilty of this time and again in my life, and ha…
 
The day I saw Felisha's first post in my Instagram community I was definitely concerned. Her despair was so thick, her hope so low. This is precisely the reason that I have been so inspired by her journey. This was supposed to be a Real Time Heal, but it quickly turned into a success story. Felicia's dire diagnoses, alongside her total unwillingnes…
 
Anxiety over things we can't control is a major big biggie. Especially now in 2020, as we linger in such uncertainty. For me, often this anxiety comes up around my children's happiness. However anxiety manifests for you, we dedicate the podcast today to calling it out, looking at it in the eye, and making space for the wave as it flows over us. The…
 
THIS IS OUR 100TH EPISODE. YAYYYYY! Monica, a former teacher and active mom of 2, was stuck on the couch, icing her piriformis muscle 6 times a day. As with so many of us, Monica was gripped with fear and meaning - What will become of me? How am I going to show up for any family and my life?? I say it all the time - Chronic pain is an epidemic of f…
 
There are several personality traits that seem to show up time and again in people who struggle with TMS (read: everyone, but only some know it). One of the major heavy hitters is perfectionism. Few people realize how toxic we are with the misguided expectations we place on ourselves to show up as "perfect" for family, friends, work, relationships,…
 
As you know, I live for my Real Time Heals, and this one is way up there. I loved getting to know Robin, with his unabashed honesty and willingness to put it all out there. We had *such* an incredible healing conversation that I think will enlighten any and all of us struggling to connect to our inner kids in there, and learning how to release sham…
 
I have struggled with insomnia, a common TMS equivalent, for a lifetime. It can be a lonely, scary place wracked with meaning, and can really pose a challenge. I get hundreds of emails a week, often people asking about insomnia as well as myriad other symptoms and conditions. It is a thread that often runs parallel to many other inquires, so I thou…
 
When I meet a person whose life and career seem to keep them in the physical realm (personal trainers, physical therapists, kinesiologists) I am tempted to worry that they will not be open to mind/body work. That makes it even better and more gratifying when I come across someone like Kate Murphy. Kate is successfully coaching people in Foundationa…
 
Trauma is a word that means different things to different people, but trauma as defined is, "a deeply distressing or disturbing experience." This means that we all have trauma to some extent or another, and our trauma changes us and how we see the world. Today on the pod, we discuss my cycling accident and the way it has manifested changes in me - …

Today on a powerful REAL TIME HEAL, Sharon and I discuss her life, her grief, and her connection to chest pain which has manifested in her own body. Her story is a prime example of the ways in which…
 
I used to think, "I'm not the kind of person to get angry... I just get sad." This is the message delivered in a great article I read over the weekend entitled, "I Used to Insist I Didn't Get Angry. Not Anymore," by Leslie Jamison. I thought to myself - we need, as a society, to get more comfortable with the fact that we get angry. In fact, we get …

Ever since I first heard the sentence, "We can do hard things," it had profound meaning to me. It is becoming even more impactful as I sit with my hard things, and allow them to transform. I have found that I am no longer running with terror away from discomfort, and it has changed my life. Now I realize, not only CAN we do hard things... we MUST. …

As a mother of 5 and a chronic pain psychotherapist, I spend a LOT of time thinking about how to communicate to kids about the natural and normal process by way the body can, at times, express our emotions for us. This is a challenge, but a worthwhile one. Today on the Pod I share a couple of stories from my own life, and some tips on how to do thi…
