    Episode 22: Heavy Topic with a Heavy Hitter: Birth Injury Cases with Nelson Tyrone

    Episode 22: Heavy Topic with a Heavy Hitter: Birth Injury Cases with Nelson Tyrone

    Nelson Tyrone is a birth injury trial lawyer based out of Atlanta, Georgia. After brief stints in high profile criminal defense and other types of serious plaintiff's injury cases, Nelson was brought in to help with a serious birth injury case where a child was catastrophically injured because of a hospital's negligence. He tried that case in Gwinnett County, Georgia, and attained a $13 million verdict to make sure that baby was taken care of the rest of her life. That child's mother now works with Nelson to help other children devastated by preventable failures in delivery. Since then Nelson's practice has become 100% birth injury cases. We discuss my son's own birth injury along with how complicated and costly these cases are.

    Episode 20: Amy Howard Certified Sex Therapist on Demystifying Sex Therapy and Maintaining Intimacy During COVID-19

    Episode 20: Amy Howard Certified Sex Therapist on Demystifying Sex Therapy and Maintaining Intimacy During COVID-19

    Today my guest is Amy Howard. She’s a therapist… but not just any therapist – she's a sex therapist. You might wonder what that has to do with my field. I guess my first reaction would be to say what doesn’t sex have to do with injury law? One of the most difficult topics to discuss or vent about after one of my clients is seriously injured is how intimacy has changed after their tragic event whether its because of disability, chronic pain, or the stress of caregiving. I also wanted Amy to talk about these issues as they relate to COVID 19 and how this has impacted relationships.


    What I love about Amy is that she demystifies and deconstructs sex therapy and makes it almost too easy to talk about. Amy has her bachelor’s degree from University of GA, her masters from Auburn University, she specializes in couples therapy, marriage counseling, and of course sex therapy. You can read lots of great material she’s written on amyhowardtherapy.com.

    24:40. Has COVID-19 killed sex???


    31:30. What are couples doing that works and does not work & what NOT to do... even if there is no attraction at all...


    38:00. Specific action items couples can do immediately to restore some intimacy... a) sensate focus, b) the 6 second kiss, and c) the lengthier hug until your guard drops...


    42:50. Is there an optimal amount of sex???
