Dr. Susan LaCombe is a closet-rebel psychologist working through her fears, trying to make an imprint on the world for something she believes is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. She was once very troubled—her trauma history had caught up to her early two clinical depressions before age 30. She turned to therapy for an answer. Turned out to be the wrong solution—well for about 14 times Until . . . . . . around her 4th decade on this planet she found the right kind of therapy . . . or was it the right type of therapist? Tricky question. The type of therapy her therapist used was a whole paradigm shift away from the others. It was a trauma-based somatic model. It not only made sense of her life, it suddenly became clear that the mental health field was approaching anxiety and depression with outdated methods. After a thousand clinical hours as a psychotherapist/psychologist and responding to hundreds of questions from people in therapy (on myShrink.com) and seeing needless suffering, she wonders if we’re going about it all wrong. She believes that if we harness our energies to helping the unborn and later infant child, we’ll have far fewer issues with emotional dysregulation and with that, far lower rates of mental illness, anxiety, depression, and related issues of abandonment, transference, authority issues and the like. She asks if we did that, could we change the trajectory of our trauma pattern as nations. In this episode Dr. Susan talks about 2 types of talk therapy, why do we even therapy, managing emotions and dealing with trauma and its connection with the nervous system, and much more.
