    Let Them See You. Reclaiming Identify After Surviving A Trauma.

    Let Them See You. Reclaiming Identify After Surviving A Trauma.

    How do you find yourself after surviving an intensely traumatic event? One thing people don’t often realize about having PTSD is that it impacts the way in which you see everything, including yourself. Second guessing becomes first  nature and distrust of everything becomes a way of life. But what if the way to overcome the impact of these events was to do the exact opposite; to lean into who you are and work on connecting inward?

    Therapist Tiffany Cutrone tells us her personal story of surviving a kidnapping and sexual assault that lead her to distrusting herself so intensely that she forced herself to change who she was. In her healing story, she was able to find ways to identify when she was seeing life through a trauma lens and not in line with her authentic self. Through coming back to who she was, amplifying her voice in advocacy and a heavy dose of therapy, she realized that living as her authentic self was best for her AND the community of clients who need her.

    Top reasons to listen to the entire episode:


    Hear Tiffany’s story of surviving a highly traumatic event and how it impacted her identity.


    Understand the role of self doubt after experiencing trauma.


    Learn how advocacy work became a part of Tiffany’s healing.


    Find ways and reasons to reconnect with yourself after surviving a traumatic event



     

    An intense listen, but also incredibly inspiring.

    There Will Be Peace Before Me. The Not So Grief Episode with Arthalia Weekes.

    There Will Be Peace Before Me. The Not So Grief Episode with Arthalia Weekes.

    If I could describe Arthalia in a word it would be joy. 

    Not artificial, superficial joy, but one that radiates into you just by being in her presence. I told her she needs to bottle her stuff up and sell it, because I would be first in line to get me some of that feeling. I would have never known in meeting her that less than just one year ago, she suffered a traumatic loss of her husband of 18 years, only to lose her son two months later. 

    “Where are the pockets of peace?” She would find herself asking when the waves of life continued to knock her over. Despite these losses, she managed to create a life that is incredibly full. 

    On this week's episode Arthalia Weekes, LCSW takes us through what it means to navigate loss while pouring into yourself. She shares how she went through milestone moments like birthdays, anniversaries and holidays while still creating space for emotions like love and happiness.

    The holidays have a way of prescribing “everyone should be happy and grateful right now” to the world, and that tends to have people bracing for impact-especially after losing someone.

    Top reasons to listen to the entire episode:


     Learn tips for navigating hard times this season from Arthalia.


    Hear her story of enduring traumatic loss in rapid succeeding and choosing to live life fully.


    Learn what not to say to someone who is going through a hard time after loss.


    Find ways to give yourself permission to experience positive emotions after a difficult loss.



    Listen to this episode for a different perspective on grief, a dose of healing but most importantly, a sense of being whole.

Carla Whitted ,

Engaging and Real

Shaelene has a gift for asking the questions with an easy manner that engages both listeners and guests. Her show really is like sitting down in your living room with interesting people sharing the “tea” from their lives and experiences. I recommend it often!

KellyPSMcG ,

Smart, real, candid

I’m so impressed by this podcast! I am a therapist and am lucky to know Sharlene through professional networks. I gave her podcast a listen to be supportive. And wow- I found myself learning so much while being completely captivated by the episode! I have listened to 4 or 5 more and they all have been spot-on. This is a great educational tool for therapy clients and therapists alike. Thank you, Shaelene!!!

Sweet Mango Therapy ,

Great podcast!

This review is on the Brainspotting episode with Vanessa Solis, LCSW. The episode was easy to follow and her curiosity and empathy was on point. Shaelene did a great job asking the right questions. I also appreciated the “realness” and authentic storytelling shared by Vanessa.
