    Episode 61: Mother Hunger with Kelly McDaniel

    Episode 61: Mother Hunger with Kelly McDaniel

    Kelly McDaniel, LPC, NCC, CSAT, is a licensed professional counselor and author, specializing in treating women who struggle with relationships. As the first clinician to name an attachment injury as Mother Hunger, she explores the legacy of maternal deprivation. Her book 'Mother Hunger', speaks to the millions of women who suffer with a life-long emotional burden that adversely affects self-worth.

    This podcast episode is Dawn Nickel and Kelly's live session of #MentalHealthMonday.

    An endless ache to love and be loved. Periods of overeating or starving. A pattern of unstable moods and painful relationships.
    Do any of these sound familiar?
    Trauma psychotherapist and author Kelly McDaniel has seen these traits over and over in clients who feel trapped in cycles of harmful behaviors — and are unable to stop.
    Many of us find ourselves stuck in unhealthy habits simply because we don't see a better way. With Mother Hunger, Kelly McDaniel helps women break the cycle of destructive behavior by taking a fresh look at childhood attachment injuries and their lasting impact.
    In doing so, she de-stigmatizes the shame that can come with being under-mothered and misdiagnosed, and offers a healing path with powerful tools that include therapeutic interventions and lifestyle changes.
    In this session of #MentalHealthMonday, Kelly McDaniel weaves her 30 years of research, clinical expertise, and a deep understanding of mothering myths, to explore 'Mother Hunger' and provide an opportunity to understand and heal the misunderstood root of poor eating patterns, chronic relationship disappointment, and distorted self-image.

Accepting of all types of recoveries

I f’n love these women! The more I listen to them, the more empowered I get. I love how they are accepting of all ways to recover. They are not threatened by any one method of recovery and they have zero dogma. It is just community and support.
