    Sex Therapist Dr. Emily Jamea on "The Birds + The Bees" Talk

    Sex Therapist Dr. Emily Jamea on "The Birds + The Bees" Talk

    This one is definitely an adults only, very candid conversation on the Birds + The Bees with Emily Jamea, a Sex Therapist, Speaker, Author and Podcast Host. I hope this can take away the stigma of the tricky conversations we have with our children around Sex and Puberty.
    People often ask Emily how she got into the field of sex therapy.
    Emily grew up in a home where sex was not a taboo topic. Her father worked as an OBGYN and both of her parent were very progressive. Together, her parent taught her that her body and sexuality were nothing to be ashamed of. As she got older she became the one her friends came to for advice on sex and relationships. It became clear to her that people had a lot of anxiety and insecurities around these topics. That’s when her journey began. She studied Psychology and Human Sexuality while at The University of Texas. She then went on to receive her Masters and eventually earned her PhD in Sexology.
    Emily has spent over working with individuals and couples to overcome relationship and sexual hurdles in order to enjoy more meaningful lives. As much as Emily loves her work, her greatest joy is her family. She is happily married with two children.
    Emily’s expert opinion has been featured on NBC, CNN, CBS, USA Today, The Houston Chronicle, Men’s Fitness, Women’s Health, and more. She has given many guest lectures at Baylor College of Medicine, Rice University, MD Anderson, Methodist Hospital, and at various support groups and meetings in the Houston area.

    Erin Morrison on Conscious Parenting + Connecting With Ourselves

    Erin Morrison on Conscious Parenting + Connecting With Ourselves

    Today's guest is Erin Morrison, also known as The Conscious Mom. 

    Erin Morrison is a Conscious Parenting expert in helping parents connect to themselves, their children & their families. 

    She’s known as The Conscious Mom and believes we are so much more than our titles, degrees and labels. Yet it is through this process she has evolved her practice in conscious parenting to where it is today.

    With two Masters Degrees in Psychological Counseling, Erin’s training at Columbia University provides her with a deep understanding of mental health counseling and the therapeutic process.

    From investment baking and advertising to her time at Google, focusing on people operations required a true understanding of the human experience. Erin realized while most had a need for guidance, most truly desired to be seen, heard and validated.

    We discuss-

    -What Conscious Parenting means and how it leads to greater connection to our children

    -Coming to understand ourselves first so we can show up for our children in an authentic way

    -We can be triggered by our children and sometimes not realize it’s about us

    -Letting our children be themselves and safely explore who they are

    -The narrative of “not-enoughness” and people pleasing

    and much more!

    Ashley Barber of Simply Maven- Professional Organizer + Speaker Specializing in the Konmari Method

    Ashley Barber of Simply Maven- Professional Organizer + Speaker Specializing in the Konmari Method

    I have known Ashley Barber for over 10 years from my days of working out at Define Body & Mind. Her smile and energy has always been contagious. 

    Ashley founded Simply Maven to help busy families and professionals simplify their homes and lives for better health and happiness. Through 1-on-1 sessions, virtual coaching, and public speaking, she and co-owner Jane McCullough guide their clients to do just that. As the first certified KonMari Consultant in Houston, and currently studying public health at UT Houston, she combines 1200+ hrs of organizing with a decade of fitness instruction, a philosophy degree, and an eye for design to bring a unique touch to each project.

    The KonMari Method™ was created by famous tidying consultant Marie Kondo, known for her best-selling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and other books , as well as her unique folding methods. The method promotes keeping items that "spark joy" while discarding what does not. The results are less stress in clients' lives and more time and energy to pursue their passions, spend time with loved ones, or engage in whatever creates a joy-filled life.

    Ashley combines her organizing skills with her eye for design and a passion for physical, mental, and spiritual wellness.

    Ashley loves teaching others the best ways to edit + organize their spaces to make room for more joy.

    On the episode we talked about her career as a Marie Kondo consultant and being a Mom to her two adorable boys, Theo and Wes.

    Highlights-

    -Prioritizing your life and what you want in your home. 

    -Taking ownership of your time and space. Simplifying.

    -keeping the house in order with kids.getting kids interested in keeping order and simplicity. Make it fun. “Structure with wiggle room.”

    -Creating a vision for your ideal lifestyle and go from there.

    -Editing before organizing. Storage isn’t usually the issue. Most people have plenty of storage space for the things that are important.

    -Being more intentional with the things you have. 

    -The definition of balance isn’t one size fits all for every person
