    Finding Your Authentic Power

    Finding Your Authentic Power

    If the last year has taught us anything, it has shown us that we are resilient creatures who regardless of the difficulties, job layoffs, illnesses, if you are listening to this podcast you have survived.


    For many people, the year has magnified dormant mental health issues or created a host of new ones.


    Joining me is Ashley Bernardi, founder of Nardi Media and the Author of Authentic Power: Give Yourself Permission to Feel. She shares her personal story of grief and trauma that eventually manifested physical ailments. In this episode, she discusses how harnessing her authentic power helped her become her truest self.

    A Soldier‘s Psychedelic Journey

    A Soldier‘s Psychedelic Journey

    I am an advocate for Psychedelics to help with treatment-resistant trauma. Recent research by MAPS, the multi-disciplinary association of psychedelic studies, has shown that psychedelics such as MDMA combined with psychotherapy has been found to be effective and well-tolerated in reducing ‘Post-traumatic stress disorder‘ or PTSD symptoms in veterans and first responders. For many veterans, psychedelics have been life-changing.

    My guest is a former Army Ranger, former private military contractor, Purple Heart recipient and veteran transition coach who founded ‘The Combat Coach.’ He’s also a psychedelic integration coach for Heroic Hearts Project, and a student of Psychology. 

    Similar to so many veterans, Kasey Pipitt had suffered from PTSD, that is until his first experience with psychedelics.

    People who experience trauma, live an existence that is lived through a different lens than others. Trauma sends us into survival mode, and you are not completely out of it until you’re able to process the event. And moments that trigger these memories feel like life or death.

    Some people can end up living their lives in survival mode. However, it does not have to be that way and for those who are able to get to the other side get to experience something even more incredible ... Post-Traumatic Growth.

    My guest is Stephanie Hutchins, Life Coach and Author of Transformation after Trauma: Embracing Post-Traumatic Growth.

    Somatic Yoga: Healing Sexual Wounds

    Somatic Yoga: Healing Sexual Wounds

    When experiencing trauma, that energy and those feelings live well beyond the actual event in the nervous system. When similar feelings are triggered, it’s the body that remembers.


    In my earliest days of treatment, somatic experiencing therapy was the first modality that really began my healing. On my podcast, I’ve interviewed Dale DeNunzio, my SE practitioner in Episode 3. And I spoke with Eduardo Cortina, a Somatic cannabis integrative therapist in Episode 35.


    In this episode, I speak with Kaity Holsapple, Somatic Yoga Therapist and Founder of Her Temple Healing.

Guest sound quality difficult to hear

Such an important topic but the guest on the sibling sexual abuse episode was difficult to hear as he often dropped his voice. It was disappointing. Host was clear and audible.
