Life is messy, hard and oftentimes hilarious. It is a constant balance between managing the chaos and trying to keep the calm somewhere in the mix. We are all pulled a million directions and need our people to lean on. Amy, Brittany and Katie are three best friends who lovingly refer to each other as “The Council.” When they need advice, a reality check, or someone to listen, they go to their Council; each other. They are three pediatric speech-language pathologists, parents, women, and best friends. They use real, authentic conversations to discuss topics regarding speech pathology, child development, parenting, motherhood, current events, the easy and hard aspects of relationships, and overall humorous events. In each episode, they love to talk and sometimes have deep conversations and big revelations, other times they just drink and laugh until their ab muscles are sore. They invite you to unwind, grab a cup of whatever brings you joy, and become a member of The Council. You will leave these conversations with something in “your cup”- whether it be laughter, new information, inspiration, a question, they welcome you to the Cup of Council Podcast.

    Normalize Being Human, with our guest, Laura Beth, licensed clinical mental health therapist

    Normalize Being Human, with our guest, Laura Beth, licensed clinical mental health therapist

    The Council sits down with Laura Beth, a licensed clinical mental health therapist to talk about "keeping it real". The group discusses normalizing mental health for our children, the changes that are happening with our generation to make mental health struggles more accepted and discussed. They touch on the impact that the pandemic has had and continues to have on mental health, and how the brain can easily forget but the body remembers and can carry trauma  (and strength) forever.  The women also discuss body image, body neutrality, body positivity, and body acceptance. This episode is jam-packed with so much rich and deep discussion, you won't want to stop listening! Laura Beth's voice and words of wisdom are calming, reflective, reassuring, and powerful. 
    Thank you for listening!

    *Special shout out to Stefanie Fauth who kindly saved our audio as we had some difficulties with this recording and were worried we would have to scrap it and start over. Thankfully with her magic, we didn't have to sacrifice this wonderful conversation. Thank you, Stefanie!

    Living Your Best Life with guest Chelsea Skaggs

    Living Your Best Life with guest Chelsea Skaggs

    The Council chats with Chelsea Skaggs, new mom coach, postpartum expert/advocate, and RV traveler to discuss RV travel lifestyle, accepting aging as a privilege, and the importance of being the whole version of yourself. Sit back and reflect on your personal views and experiences with aging, and how society and others have influenced your view on this process. Listen as the women discuss making time for yourself as a parent and how "mom guilt" is really just the pressure that you put on yourself. Chelsea also shares how she and her family made a choice during the early part of the pandemic to leave their home and embark on a cross-country journey where they have been living and traveling in an RV for over a year! This was a very fun, enlightening, and inspiring conversation and we cannot wait to chat with Chelsea again in the future.
