    Soulful Retreat Reflections and Celebrations with Kristin Mathes

    Soulful Retreat Reflections and Celebrations with Kristin Mathes

    Kristin joins me again as we settle in to the moment and really explore and enjoy the aftermath of my Soulful Retreat in Panama. If you were curious how it went and also about some of my behind the scenes process... here's a window in to all of that. It was an epic coming home and a remembering of our deepest hearts. This time spent reflecting together really anchored in the nourishment of it all.



    Kristin Mathes, LCSW is a psychotherapist specializing in trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Anxiety, and Depression. She owns and operates her own private practice where she works with women and adolescents who are finding themselves trapped by physical symptoms of trauma, anxiety, and depression. Much of her therapeutic practice is inspired by her time spent as a Wilderness Therapist guiding clients through wilderness expeditions. Nature has always shown her how much our present-day activities disconnect us from our Self, our body, and our relationships. And, importantly, how our physical and emotional health issues can arise from such disconnection.

    ⁠Kristin is launching registration for FLOW, her surf therapy retreat in March of 2025

    Fostering Regulation with Support and Care with Gail Susan Gordon

    Fostering Regulation with Support and Care with Gail Susan Gordon

    Gail Susan Gordon joins me as we look at nervous system regulation within the therapeutic relationship, whether working with individual adults or supporting parents, caregivers and children. As we support and foster attunement and regulation within the healing relationship, we create the conditions that allow people to grow and flourish.

    Gail describes her compassionate view on how to best support the healing process for adults who’ve had challenging childhoods. You're sure to leave this episode feeling warmth in your heart and more grounded and at ease.



    About Gail, in her own words:

    My own journey has taught me that healing is not only possible, it’s a reality one can count on. When I bring together my training and my personal experience, I’m able to support people to move forward in a meaningful way.I’ve worked as a psychotherapist with children and adults for almost 15 years. My training includes advanced studies in early development, trauma and somatics (body-oriented therapies). My work incorporates the impact of culture and social/political oppression in our daily lives.A special interest has been integrating the body into therapy through many programs, including Somatic Experiencing, Somatic Resilience and Regulation, and Transforming the Experienced Based Brain/Transforming Touch. Learning the abundance of ways the body and mind are designed to heal from stress and trauma is an ongoing revelation. I share with you what I learn, incorporating it into my approach to working together. I’m looking forward to our journey.

Just what I needed…

The latest podcast was like a warm bowl of Pho to my heart and for my practice. Checking ourselves in that moment and making sure we are hearing our clients makes such sense. Sometimes, I hit “go” on the advice. I’m gonna savor the soup a bit…

Shelby is a treasure trove of enlightenment

I met Shelby many years ago and thought she was a nut when she told me I needed to heal my trauma in order to move forward and be happy. I thought I just needed to lose the baby weight and my ex boyfriend needed to die a slow and painful death, that’s all! Years later, after therapy and EMDR, I am blown away by her and how immature I was when she told me this. She is a beacon of light in this journey of life! Also, her voice is incredibly soothing and healing in its own right. Listen to her, this podcast and her words are truly a gift to us!!
