    Through a support network of coaches, therapists, doctors & friends, Cat found the courage to leave him and began rebuilding her life to find herself again whilst going to court, giving police statements, applying for a visa, moving 9 times in 10 months & trying to keep her business going.
    She now has been granted her permanent Australian residency, has an intervention order against him, her own apartment & a thriving business.
    This week's converstion discusses Cat's experience with domestic violence. She shares her childhood experiences witnessing domestic violence and the impact it had on her relationships.
    She talks about the pattern of abusive relationships she found herself in and the escalation of abuse.

    Episode 121 | A Survivor's Journey Through Domestic Violence, featuring Kristina Meyer

    Episode 121 | A Survivor's Journey Through Domestic Violence, featuring Kristina Meyer

    *Trigger warning: This episode mentions acts of domestic violence. Listener discretion is advised.*
    Kristina Meyer is a licensed clinical social worker & domestic violence survivor. She met her abuser at the age of 16. They were together for 11 years and married for 3. She underwent emotional, verbal, sexual and physical abuse in the relationship.
    She is now using her experience to support others going through the same thing and to get the word out about domestic violence. She realized after coming out of that relationship that her trauma was even deeper than just the relationship.
    Kristina has worked as a medical social worker and therapist in her career. She's been able to use her experience to help her clients heal from their traumas. You can follow her on Instagram & TikTok.
    Kristina shares her experiences growing up in a household with domestic violence, the red flags she ignored in her own relationship & the process of leaving her abuser after 11 years.
    We talk about the importance of self-love, forgiveness and getting to know yourself on the healing journey.
    We also highlight the need to break the silence surrounding domestic violence and seek support from others who have gone through similar experiences. We encourage survivors to focus on themselves, reach out for help, and focus on their own path to healing.
    Having these conversations is never easy. It's even harder to relive through the trauma we experienced as domestic violence survivors. But it's so important to continue the conversation and speak up against domestic violence. We are NO LONGER STAYING SILENT!🗣️
    Please remember that there is SO MUCH POWER in speaking out and using your voice to share your story💜Help is available and healing is in fact possible.

    Episode 119 | How to Paint Your Own Path in Life, featuring Dr. Clarissa Castillo-Ramsey

    Episode 119 | How to Paint Your Own Path in Life, featuring Dr. Clarissa Castillo-Ramsey

    This week, I sit down with Dr. Clarissa Castillo-Ramsey, an abstract artist and podcaster. We talk about her journey of rediscovering creativity and using it as a tool for personal development.
    Growing up in a practical and traditional family, she suppressed her artistic side. However, in her mid-20s, she attended a painting retreat that reignited her passion for art.
    Driven by a desire to help others live life on their own terms, she combines her expertise in psychology and creativity to guide her clients in painting their own path.
    We discuss the importance of embracing imperfection, overcoming fear & tapping into your inner child in order to unlock your creativity and THRIVE in life! Visit here to learn more.
    Creativity is not limited to art; it can be found in everyday activities. I hope by listening to this week's episode with Clarissa, you give yourself permission to tap into creativity, try new things and step out of your comfort zone.
    And remember this:
    🎨Embrace imperfection and give yourself permission to pivot and change.
    🎨Fear is often based on false evidence appearing real; challenge your fears and focus on the message you want to share.
    🎨Live a life that aligns with your passions & values, and leave a legacy of helping others live their best lives.
    Now, go out there and BE GREAT!💕

    Episode 117 | How to Navigate Life Post Abuse, featuring Tori Benitez

    Episode 117 | How to Navigate Life Post Abuse, featuring Tori Benitez

    *Trigger warning: This episode mentions acts of domestic violence. Listener discretion is advised.*
    In this week’s episode, I sat down with Tori Benitez, a survivor of domestic violence and founder of Onyx Arrow Consulting. Tori helps those escape abusive relationships who are forced to not only co-parent with their abusers, but navigate the family court system. She specializes in strategies to help protective parents and their children.
    Tori shares her personal experiences with multiple abusive relationships and the different forms of abuse she's dealt with. We highlight the concept of coercive control & signs of abuse to look out for. We also discuss the challenges of leaving an abusive relationship & navigating the legal system. We talk about how important it is to document the abuse you're dealing with and ways to seek help after leaving.
    Leaving an abusive relationship is one of the hardest things a victim of DV can encounter. I want people to know that just because you left the relationship doesn't mean that the abuse stops. There's so much more that goes into leaving, and this week we're talking about it.
    I hope by listening to our conversation, you can learn how to protect yourself from post-separation abuse and take back power once you leave that toxic relationship. It can be a challenge, but if we both have done it, you ABSOLUTELY can too!
