This podcast series will benefit listeners who are struggling with interpersonal relationship challenges due to attachment related personality styles such as codependency or commitment-phobia - as well struggles with infidelity, vulnerability, and trust.
Grief and loss come in all forms. Death, a breakup, the loss of a pet, a best friend, a home, or a job. We grieve our health when we become sick or our innocence when we are violated. This podcast discusses different forms of grief and offers tips on how to process loss. This podcast is part of the attachment series because when we grieve, we are missing something we were attached to. We grieve the loss of our attachment to a person, place, or thing, and sometimes we grieve what we didn't have such as a healthy childhood or a nurturing/validating parent.

If you are seeking to learn more information about why people complete suicide (beyond a chemical imbalance), this podcast is for you.
