#51: Finding Hope and Healing

2020 and the start to this New Year has been incredibly stressful with over half a million COVID-19 deaths in the United States and over 2.4 million worldwide. We face continued political divisions, disruptions, uncertainty, and mental health and substance abuse crises. In this episode, we explore how to find hope and healing in the midst of continued uncertainty, disruptions, and crises. I share several Martin Luther King Jr. quotes as a way to honor his service and sacrifice to bring about justice, equality, and unity. 

Several therapeutic approaches for anxiety, trauma, and depression were discussed during this episode. Brainspotting is a mind/body therapeutic approach that helps process trauma stored in the subcortical brain.  This approach was discovered in 2003 by David Grand, Ph.D., and over 13,000 therapists have completed professional training. To learn more or find a certified Brainspotting therapist visit  I also mentioned Eye Movement Reprocessing Desensitization (EMDR),  Somatic Experiencing (SE) as well as Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) as effective approaches in treating trauma. If you need a therapist who is trained in Brainspotting, EMDR, SE or IFS visit or and there you will be able to filter your search by type of therapy.
