    Grieving the Life You Thought You’d Have: The Radical Stepmoms Ep. 105

    Grieving the Life You Thought You’d Have: The Radical Stepmoms Ep. 105

    When life doesn’t play out as planned, we experience loss—of expectations, hopes, and dreams.  And, as with every loss, we grieve.  But how do we grieve something we never had in the first place? Christina and Genet of The Radical Stepmoms podcast join me to discuss just that—grieving the life they thought they’d have, while still embracing and cherishing the life they do have.  At some point (or many points!) in life, we all find ourselves stepping into roles and realities we didn’t anticipate.  Join us to learn strategies for navigating these uncharted waters.

    Top 5 Traits to Look for in a Partner! Ep. 104

    Top 5 Traits to Look for in a Partner! Ep. 104

    I often get asked, “What we should be looking for when dating?  Which qualities indicate a person will be a committed, solid, loving partner?”  Recently, I came across a framework by psychiatrist Dr. Stephen Marmer describing emotional maturity.  As I examined the model, I was struck by how the characteristics of maturity mirror those qualities we need in a romantic partner—if we’re hoping for a lasting, loving, secure connection.  Dan joins me to discuss these 5 traits and how we’ve experienced them—and in past relationships, not experienced them!  We wrap up the episode answering a listener’s question about how to differentiate between her intuition and inner critic.

    Can I Find Love Over 40? Love & Life Q&A! Ep. 103

    Can I Find Love Over 40? Love & Life Q&A! Ep. 103

    It’s time for another Love & Life Q&A!  In this episode, I answer two questions I recently received.  One listener asks how she can possibly maintain hope for finding love; she’s over 40 and feeling demoralized and worries she’ll never meet her person.  Another listener wonders if she can salvage a relationship that’s gone off course.  After seeing a guy for a couple months, she asked the proverbial, “What are we?” question.  They argued and now he’s stonewalling her.  She asks me, “What can I do to get him back?  I really like him!”  I wrap up the episode by sharing details on how to join the Love & Life book club and Love & Life support groups I’m rolling out this fall!

    Attachment Styles and Dating with Dr. Duana Welch Ep. 102

    Attachment Styles and Dating with Dr. Duana Welch Ep. 102

    We are kicking season 5 off with Dr. Duana Welch to discuss attachment styles and dating! 

    Have you ever experienced the following?

    ·        You felt an initial spark, but got turned off when he/she came on too strong.

    ·        Someone ghosted you after what you thought was the beginning of a very happy relationship.

    ·        You found yourself bored by someone who is stable and kind.

    If so, your attachment style may have played a part!

    According to developmental psychologists, the bond you form with your primary caregiver in childhood sets the tone for the way you connect to others in adulthood.  Dr. Duana Welch, author of Love Factually: Attachment Style Dating Made Easier, explains the difference between Secure, Anxious, and Avoidant attachment and the pros and cons of each—spoiler alert, there are positives to anxious attachment!—along with how an understanding of our attachment style can help us get the love we desire!

    What Story Are You Telling Yourself? Writing Therapy with Stacy Brookman Ep. 101

    We’ve all heard that journaling can be therapeutic.  But how does writing down our thoughts and feelings heal our emotional wounds?  In this episode, we explore all this and more with Stacy Brookman of “Life Story Laboratory.” Stacy shares how writing helps us process our experiences, recover from trauma, and take back our power!  Stacy explains how we can discover our life’s “theme” and reframe it if it’s not working for us.  She encourages us to identify any lies we’re telling ourselves and replace them with the truth—that we’re strong, capable, and tenacious!  According to psych research, writing fosters resilience and cultivates confidence.  Join us to learn how to implement this powerful practice in your life!
