    162 - Cutting Toxic Ties: Healing From Family Estrangement w/ Matt Kollock

    162 - Cutting Toxic Ties: Healing From Family Estrangement w/ Matt Kollock

    Healing from childhood trauma and neglect has a new soundtrack...
    Matt Kollock is an alt-indie rocker hailing in New Mexico by way of Wisconsin. His second album ‘Family Plot’ will be released on June 21st, 2024 and is inspired by his dysfunctional childhood.
    The first part of the album focuses on the trauma and neglect of his childhood as a sheltered, isolated and “too-sensitive” boy. Side two explores the positive transformation the artist has undergone since deciding to “go no contact” with his family of origin.

Turiee ,

So valuable

This podcast has solidified so much of the healing I have been doing. It also constantly brings new concepts to the table, allowing me to consider different ways to heal. I love Andrea and her open heart

Thanks

I have never come across any work or author I resonate with so strongly re. family induced PTSD. The ‘adult child’ concept is a glass of water relief to the get-over-it gaslighting I’ve heard through so much of my life.

My new fave Pod

Such a great, entertaining, informative Podcast that I can absolutely relate to. Thank you for doing this 💜
