When it comes to heartbreak, most people fear it, citing it as one of the most crushing experiences of a lifetime. Not Chelsea. On this podcast, Breakup Coach Chelsea Leigh Trescott explores the upside of heartbreak, shedding light on how loss is our greatest opportunity to become meaningful, relatable human beings who are stronger in love, life, and character.
207: Changing How We Pursue with Jennifer Lehr
Marriage and Family Therapist and the founder and creator of WeConcile—an affordable online DIY relationship restoration program for couples—Jennifer Lehr, MFT joins Chelsea to talk about love as a creative endeavor, learning to trust the universe while dealing with a major complication, how every fear has a need attached to it, why not feeling safely, and emotionally connected threatens a relationship more than anything, and why finding the one has nothing to do with numbers and everything to do with grace, magic, and synchronicity.

206: Finding The Gifts Right And Left with Monica Berg
Author of Fear Is Not An Option and Rethink Love: 3 Steps to being the one, attracting the one, and become one, Monica Berg is a self-proclaimed “change junkie.” She talks about why meeting her husband felt more like a thud than a bang, how her father’s nonverbal support and ability to just walk by her side during her eating disorder were some of the most beautiful days, the true definition of authenticity, why we all need to help each other offer our unique strength to this world, and how raising a son with special needs helped her let go of judgment, expectation, and approval and showed her what real love is.

205: Humanizing The Comedian with Jordan Power
Known as the clown, the monkey, the deviant with the Famous Anus and the person at the party who says the uncomfortable truth, comedian and host of the Unmentionable podcast, Jordan Power brings to the mic a rarer side of himself in this episode—one that’s deeper, darker, and a little off brand. It’s the side of himself that he’s always wanted to be loved for—his brain and cerebral take on the world. In episode 205, Jordan opens up about how comedy became a defense mechanism that he’s cleaved to in the darkest moments of his life, a tool that both saves him and makes him a slave to the chuckles. He talks about where his deepest insecurity—being unlovable—and his heaviest fear—that no one will stay—originated, how he lost 20 years of his life as a result of not being able to be open, candid, and shamelessly gay, why he'll no longer be divulging his sex life on his new podcast, and how confronting his own mortality on a regular basis keeps him zoned in and balls out. This conversation is everything that Thank You Heartbreak hopes to embody—depth, darkness, bursts of laughter, wide-eyed commentary and shameless self-critique.

204: Dating with Dignity with Marni Batista
203: Telling The Universe He's Done with Dr. Dain Heer
Renowned author, speaker, facilitator of consciousness and change, and the co-creator of Access Consciousness, Dr. Dain Heer joins Chelsea for a deep conversation. That seems like a given and, yet, in hearing this episode back it hit me that the depth in this conversation really is multi-dimensional. Not only will hear how being the only white kid in the neighborhood taught him about judgment, but you'll hear about the dynamic abuse he suffered at the hands of women—an experience that awoke the seeker in him. We spoke about how putting suicide on the agenda pushed him out toward life, the question you can ask yourself to see whether you're telling yourself a lie or hearing your truth, how we have a hand in building the wall of judgment that separates us in relationships, why freedom means knowing you have choice, and how the belief that we're only good and successful in relationship, if we make it last forever is harming our growth. Plus, so much more.

202: If She Can Do It, I Can Do It with Linda Olson
At the time of the accident, Linda Olson, author of Gone: A Memoir of Love, Body, and Taking Back My Life, had it all. She and her husband were both young doctors traveling through Germany when a train hit their van in an accident that shattered their lives—and Linda's body—forever. As a triple amputee, Linda opens up about the pact her and her husband made when they were first reunited in the hospital and why the family secret they kept for 35-years was an important part of why their lives turned out so well. She talks about dropping the blame game and never looking back at "what-if," using humor to make others comfortable with her disability, why initiating contact with a single word—hello—kept her from being left behind in her new life and how a recent Parkison's diagnosis is daring her, once again, to overcome limitations through a mindset of innovation.
