    Ep. 29 Poonam Bhuchar

    I am joined by lawyer and author Poonam Bhuchar. We discuss her book Safe from the Pain Out of the Darkness into a Life That's Free, Happy and Good. Poonam survived sexual assault, attempted suicide, and got went through a divorce. Her SAFE method helped with processing all that pain so she could live a full life after the trauma. We discuss how recovering from these events isn't an easy process and can truly take decades. We discuss tips on healing from trauma, what self-care looks like as an empty nester and her experience with going through a divorce both as a family lawyer and someone who has experienced it first hand.

    Ep. 26 Geralyn Ritter

    On this episode I am joined by Geralyn Ritter. She has recently released a book: Bone by Bone a Memoir of Trauma and Healing.  She was on her way home from an ordinary business trip when Amtrak 188 derailed outside of Philadelphia. She was crushed in the crash, which killed eight and injured hundreds. A hundred percent of the proceeds from the book will be going to trauma professionals, medicine and survivors as well.

    We talk about what the immediate aftermath of the accident was like for her and her family.  She shares her experiences with trauma, resilience and gratitude. She also shares how devastating and depressing this time was for her and her loved ones. The resentment and pain her and her husband endured trying to find a way to go from a typical husband and wife to a care-giver and patient. The overwhelming support of her community and how it really helped her prioritize relationships in a way that most of us take for granted.

    Her experience really shows that two things can be true at the same time. You can wish something didn't happen and be grateful for some of the lessons it brought as well.

    Ep. 25- Darby Fox

    On this episode I talk with Darby Fox about parenting teens. Darby is a licensed clinical social worker, TV personality, and author of Rethinking Your Teenager Shifting from Control and Conflict to Structure and Nurture to Raise Accountable Young Adults.

    We talk about the neuroscience around teenagers brain development and the best tools to use while presenting an actions based consequence and communication ideas that encourage healthy conversations that don't feel like an interrogation. We talk about how helicopter parenting is on the rise and how it really isn't beneficial for raising young adults.

She was talks about an unwanted sexual experience and being held at gunpoint both which led her on a journey of healing after PTSD and her experiences with finding a medication that worked.

Caitlin Billings ,

Like a deep chat with a trusted friend

Thank you to Ashley for a warm and comfortable interview! The premise of this podcast is to do away with the niceties of how life is “supposed to be” and instead focus on how being vulnerable and connected with each other fills our collective cup. Our values and messages are very much aligned and it’s exciting and empowering to connect with others engaging in the work of truth telling and vulnerability. Thank you, Ashley!
