    Why It’s So Hard to Ask for Help with Harry Cunnane

    Why It’s So Hard to Ask for Help with Harry Cunnane

    Harry Cunane shares his journey from the darkness of addiction - drinking recreationally with friends to blowing cocaine in the bathroom of his high school to scoring opiates in northern Philadelphia stealing money for his drugs and foregoing food - to his incredible yet super normal life today. We talk about why it’s so hard to ask for help, how fighting for our lives is the greatest gift we give ourselves, and how being enough and having enough is more than enough for him.
     
    Harry is an author and an active member of the addiction recovery community since his recovery began more than seven years ago, participating in a twelve-step program and volunteering at rehabs and jails around Philadelphia to spread a message of hope. He now works as a resource director for the same treatment center where he originally sought help for his own addiction. 
     
    You can find out more and by following Harry on Instagram and on Facebook, and by checking out his most recent book Under Our Roof: a son's battle for recovery, a mother's battle for her son.

    In this episode, I have a conversation with my friend Dr. Alec Miller.

Alec has always been someone who I learn a LOT from - he’s both brilliant and easy to talk to - and today is no different. We talk all about invalidating ourselves, emotion phobia, why toxic positivity doesn’t work - and even make things worse - and how sensitivity is a true superpower.

He is also a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY.  He is perhaps best known for adapting Dialectical Behavior Therapy for adolescents and their families.

    Why Trauma is Even More Normal Than We Think with Kimberly Johnson

    Why Trauma is Even More Normal Than We Think with Kimberly Johnson

    I got my hands on an early copy of Kimberly Johnson’s new book, Call of the Wild, and basically lost my mind. So much insight into the cultural impacts on women and their bodies, why the most intense solution isn’t the best, and why trauma is even *more* normal than we think… and may be very much in the way of understanding what we’re really craving.
     
    Kimberly Johnson is a Sexological Bodyworker, Somatic Experiencing practitioner, yoga teacher trainer, postpartum advocate and single mom. She helps women heal from birth injuries, gynecological surgeries and sexual boundary violations. She is the author of early mothering classic The Fourth Trimester, as well as Call of the Wild: How We Heal Trauma, Awaken Our Own Power, and Use It for Good.
     
    If you want to know more about Kimberly, you can follow her on Instagram and Facebook, you can find her on her website, and listen to her podcast Magamama.
