    Episode 100: Why I Created The Family Brain Podcast

    Episode 100: Why I Created The Family Brain Podcast

    I am celebrating my 100th episode by talking to my life long friend Meghan Judge (yes also Meg(h)an) about the reason I decided to create The Family Brain Podcast.  As a therapist I understood the difficulties people go through to a certain degree, but when I lost my friend 5 years ago I was forever changed.  In this episode I talk about losing my friend in a domestic violence circumstance, what I have learned from that experience, and why it prompted me to share resources and stories on this podcast.  My main goal is to help others not feel so alone in whatever they go through.  It is hard to struggle but that is compounded when you feel like you are the only one.  Thank you for listening to this episode and if you would like to learn more about organ donation after listening please check out

    Episode 99: Parenting Self Care Hacks with Amber Trueblood

    Episode 99: Parenting Self Care Hacks with Amber Trueblood

    Amber Trueblood, LMFT, is a mother, speaker, author and podcaster. She helps overwhelmed moms feel more calm connected, and fulfilled by their lives. I was in a bit of a tailspin when I spoke with Amber as Texas was in the midst of an unusual snowstorm that shut down most of the state. Having said that, it was the perfect time to talk with Amber because the way I was feeling at the time was similar to how I had felt at the beginning of the pandemic, which was also similar to how I felt after becoming a new mom. All the feels! She has great concrete and pragmatic tools to help keep grounded in times of stress. I was so thankful that I talked to her when I did and I hope you love her too.
    Her book Stretch Marks is available on amazon

    Episode 98: The Confess Project and Mental Health for Black Men and Boys

    Episode 98: The Confess Project and Mental Health for Black Men and Boys

    I have been following The Confess Project on Instagram @theconfessproject and it is one of the most innovative mental health concepts I have ever encountered. Lorenzo Lewis came up with the idea for The Confess Project after recognizing that the mental health needs of black men and boys were not being met by conventional interventions. The Confess Project is a grass roots organization which trains barbers in providing mental health support and resources in their communities. 
    The Confess Project is “America’s First Mental Health Barbershop Movement” and the organization is “committed to building a culture of mental health for boys, men of color and their families.” 
    In this episode I talk with Darnell Rice, Director of Membership and Engagement, and we talk about reducing the stigma around mental health, and the specific challenges black men and boys face in the world and in finding appropriate mental health treatment.
