    About Maria-Elena “Emmy” Rousseau

    Emmy is the founder of Trinity Transformations, a company devoted to helping the anxious overachiever release the shame and guilt they’ve been hanging onto surrounding their high-functioning depression and/or anxiety. Emmy struggled with high-functioning depression for years, and developed a robust toolbox that allowed her to stop feeling like she was treading water and, eventually, truly thrive. What began that journey for her was growth mindset, something she found as a teacher, to help her elementary students. In so doing, she found it was key to beginning her own healing. She now brings all the tools and strategies she has learned to adults in her speaking and coaching. Emmy is passionate about helping others realize that there need be no stigma in having mental health issues and that it doesn’t define them. She created Trinity Transformations to offer connection through joy, gratitude, and love.

    EP 103: One Woman's Story of Making Peace with Weight Loss, Food & Self-Love with Roni Davis

    Be kind to yourself. Food and weight loss is the basis of this conversation, however, my guest, Roni Davis, shows us that it is so much more than that. We are talking self-love, good self-talk and unhealed traumas.
    --
    Roni Davis, a former personal trainer and national athlete shares her very raw story of coming to love herself. For 3 decades she struggled with food including battling bulimia and depression. She is open and honest about her journey and how she finally healed herself. Now she is on a mission to help others by bundling everything she used to heal herself to create her own Cognitive Eating Academy.
    --
    Roni shares:
    ✔️ her turning point and a-has.
    ✔️ how our culture’s focus on equating worth with size is hurting us.
    ✔️ we have to get real about the damage being done by judging our bodies so harshly.
    ✔️ what is cognitive eating

    EP 102: How We Abandon Ourselves with Laura Gatien

    EP 102: How We Abandon Ourselves with Laura Gatien

    “You abandon yourself when you stop trusting your intuition, your inner knowing.”
    I chat with Laura Gatien, a social worker and clinical therapist, about the ways that we abandon ourselves. She says there are rules that are handed down to us that we are expected to follow if we are to be liked, accepted and fit in. She helps people examine that rule book so that people can begin editing their story so they can start living freely and with authenticity.
    --
    Laura shares:
    ✔️ The BIGGEST rule that affects people’s lives.
    --
    ✔️ Taking responsibility to get your needs met.
    --
    ✔️ The ways we abandon ourselves
    --
    ✔️ What holds people back from moving toward their authentic self.

    EP 101: Screw Expectations with Dr. Agnes Wainman

    EP 101: Screw Expectations with Dr. Agnes Wainman

    About the Show:
    Today I speak with Dr. Agnes Wainman, a clinical psychologist that helps overwhelmed and worried women overcome unrealistic expectations that are making them sick and miserable. She coined a term called Expectation Discrepancy Syndrome. 
    We talk about:
    - what causes unrealistic expectations
    - why they are making you miserable and 
    - how to overcome them.

    About Dr. Agnes Wainman:
    --
    I understand what it's like to feel overwhelmed, to face unexpected life stressors and to struggle with finding balance between self-care and the care of everyone else.  I know what it's like to feel like you're doing everything that you "should" do, yet it still never feels like it's enough.  It is exhausting, both physically and emotionally.  I want to help you silence that nagging voice in your head that says that you're not good enough or that you're not doing enough.  I want you to be able to enjoy your life without having to imagine all the possible worst case scenarios and feeling like you need a contingency plan for all of them.  My passion is to help you put you back on your own priority list, without guilty or worry.
    I decided to pursue my PhD in clinical psychology because I have always been intrigued by people, their stories, their relationships, their responses to stressful situations and their resilience. During my studies at Western University in London, Ontario, I was incredibly lucky to have trained in a number of different settings including working with university students at the Student Development Centre, patients with spinal cord injuries at Parkwood Hospital, patients living with chronic pain and other medical conditions at London Health Sciences Centre.  I received training in a number of different theoretical orientations including cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy and mindfulness meditation training. During my residency at the London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium, I continued my training within programs such as the Fertility Clinic and received specialized training in the relationship between physical health and emotional well-being.  Following the completion of my Doctoral Degree, I began working in private practice and then founded London Psychological Services.  I am so privileged to be invited into your life.
