    Family Gathering Cheer

    Imagine if your family could talk about conflict in a way where everyone involved felt heard, cared for and supported; with each of you joined by your own therapist, who brings compassion and respect for everyone involved.Gennifer and Noreen talk to Tanya Cole-Lesnick, LCSW-R, an expert in navigating family dynamics, about The Nest — an incredibly supportive and nurturing opportunity innovated at The Lighthouse Retreat & Wellness Center located in Croton-on-Hudson, NY.  We chat about The Nest as an integrated family therapy experience that offers an alternative to more traditional programs. Some of their tools include:⭐  💚 ⭐   In-the-moment live journaling: where clients can capture situations as they are being felt (vs a week later after processing it). This allows the individual sessions to focus on the deeper work so time isn’t wasted on catching up.⭐  💚  ⭐  Being a Professional Witness:* where the therapists bring their professional training and relationship with their client to the group meeting and at the same time hold space for this experience on behalf of the client and the therapeutic relationship. *name coined by Noreen in an aha moment⭐  💚  ⭐  Loving support: from the therapists, not just for their clients, but for all individual family members involved, making this a very inclusive, collaborative experience to help a family heal and move forward together. We hope this conversation inspires your curiosity and wonderabout new ways for you and those you love to thrive. Disclaimer: Everything we share here is for educational purposes.

The world needs this show

A show about the magic in our everyday lives? Yes, please! I LOVED the episode about The Beatles and how their incredible music was just as magical in 1964 as it is in 2020. Noreen & Gennifer ask insightful, meaningful questions with their guests. I'm a convert to this show. What a beautiful, positive concept for a podcast. I'm definitely subscribing!
