    When It’s Good To Ghost, with Melanie Hersch

    When It’s Good To Ghost, with Melanie Hersch

    Ghosting, we have all been ghosted and we have all been the ghoster! When someone just disappears it can cause a ton of insecure thoughts and make it scary to jump back into the dating pool and when you are doing the ghosting it ends up making you feel guilty and like you’re going to have bad karma. If all this strife comes from merely NOT texting or calling someone back then why do we all keep doing it? Lucky for us we have licensed marriage and family therapist and dating coach at eHarmony, Melanie Hersch in to discuss, ghosting: why it happens and why it’s good, how can we fail proof our communication in dating, why our limiting beliefs impact our dating success and what we can do to build dating resilience.

    Should We Talk About It?, with Gabriela Ulloa

    Should We Talk About It?, with Gabriela Ulloa

    Have you seen red flags but painted them white? Spotting an issue in someone else is hard because you don’t want to write them off after one incident, but you also don't want to stick around too long and get caught in a toxic relationship. The longer you hold on, the harder it is to let go because feelings grow deeper, you become more attached and you are more apt to make excuses, otherwise known as painting red flags white! We are happy to have journalist and host of “Should We Talk About It,” Gabriela Ulloa in to discuss how to love and forgive yourself by strengthening your mental health, how to avoid burnout and take care of yourself in your career when you are just starting out, and how to create healthy relationships and spot red flags in toxic ones.

    How to Get What You Want, with Heather Hansen

    How to Get What You Want, with Heather Hansen

    Tell me what you want, what you really, really want! We all know we need to ask for what we want but when it comes to actually doing it we clam up. Are people going to think we are rude? Are we going to make someone feel bad? And when someone tells you what they want, do we actually want to hear it? I mean, when Tom told you he didn’t want to continue dating did you blame him and make up a bunch of reasons in your head about why he was being an ass or did you just respect that he told you what he really, really wanted? All this honesty talk is hard and we need some direction so we brought self-advocacy expert, on-air legal analyst, and award-winning trial attorney Heather Hansen in to discuss her book Advocate to Win: 10 Tools to Ask for What You Want and Get It, and how you can use the tools of a trial attorney to ask for what you want — and get it.

    Be a Boundary Boss, with Terri Cole

    Be a Boundary Boss, with Terri Cole

    Boundaries! You don’t realize how difficult they are to make until you have lost track of what they are. We have all been in relationships where our boundary lines disappeared because we wanted to be the “cool girl.” If you’ve let your significant-o text their ex and acted unaffected, pretended you didn’t want a commitment more than you really did or played it off like you were fine with the fact that the person you are casually dating is still casually dating other people then you are guilty of blurred boundaries. We've all been there but thankfully after you listen to this show you’ll be able to draw a clear line in the sand and say goodbye to the old “cool girl” who is crying inside because we have our guest, Terri Cole, licensed psychotherapist, global leading relationship expert and author, in to discuss how to speak your truth with ease, her tried and true strategy to uncover when the past is negatively impacting the present, how to navigate conflict with the Recognize-Release-Respond strategy and how to create a boundary blueprint so you can become a Boundary Boss!
