    Introducing NAN Collective

    Introducing NAN Collective

    In this episode of the No Approval Needed podcast, Brooke and her friend, Dr. Jocelyn Abrams, PhD and psychologist, discuss her new space- NAN Collective which combines her love for vintage clothing, the podcast, and creating a community of women.

    Brooke and Jocelyn talk about the need for deep and meaningful connections in a world filled with false senses of community. They explore vulnerability, fear of judgment, and the courage it takes to be authentic. Brooke hopes that through Nan Collective, women can have inspiring conversations, gain new perspectives, and support each other in their personal growth.

    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!
