Listener, today you are in for a treat. In this episode I sit down with Jada Dobesh of Selah Space in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Jada was recommended to me by a friend who said I would be BLOWN AWAY (in a good way). Let me tell you, I was. Our time together FLEW by and I learned so much in our time together. I know you'll find something here that connects with you. Key Takeaways Content Confident subscription from MKM: More efficient, less stressful, plug and play social media strategy It's hard to fit Jada's job description into a single sentence: She's a spiritual healing facilitator, certified Reiki practitioner, and has a psychology background. She practices at the intersection of three main topics: Spirituality, sexuality, and self-worth. Our society has taught us those three things are not meant to go together, but Jada is helping us unlearn that. As a child of divorced parents, Jada wanted to be a Marriage and Family Therapist. As an undergrad she changed her major to youth ministry. She graduated, got married, and started her career in a single week! Selah is a Hebrew word with no good translation, but means “Stop and think about what the lyrics just said.” Jada worked with a spiritual guide and a therapist and noticed she could talk about her sex life with one and her spirituality with another. She knew women would benefit from someone who could help with both. As a youth minister Jada loved working with the moms most. Moms are still her favorite people to work with, especially those for whom everything is “technically fine.” We discuss how we can be addicted to busyness and chaos and what that models for our children. “Oh my gosh, how do I not destroy my kids?” Jada offers the program Menstrual Mystics to help us REALLY understand our cycle. She gives a quick breakdown in our episode but ladies, LOOK THIS UP! Jada's socials are linked at the bottom of these notes. Our cycle starts with the first day of your last “period” but there are several periods to a cycle. The Follicular phase mirrors spring and we are flirty, young, and have so many ideas. It's best to not execute on these ideas, but take lots of notes! Ovulation is 3-5 days and is like the full moon of summer. This is the time to communicate, network, interview, and batch content. We are at our BEST. Luteal is our fall. If you struggle with reproductive health, these are the days when you feel it the most. Menstrual phase is what we commonly refer to as our period, and it's time to REST. This is not when we are irrational, it is when we are done with BS and (rightfully!) mad at the world. Jada carefully considers habits that affect hormones. She recommends eating within an hour of waking up, limiting exercise to 30 minutes for most women, and avoiding caffeine during your menstrual period. Lunch is a great time to exercise to prevent an afternoon slump. This interview left me craving more information. Check out Jada's offerings here. I especially love the description for Soul Illume: “You're supposed to take up space, to live your spirit-led life by listening closely to your intuition and honoring its call.” I love her response to the saying that you can't pour from and empty cup. She says she prefers the analogy of a champagne fountain where everyone can be served at once. I literally cried happy tears the first time I used Flodesk for my email list. Not only was it BY FAR the easiest platform I had tried, my emails were beautiful and matched my branding! Use my link for 50% off Flodesk.

Fund conversations that matter: donate.accessmore.com Have you ever felt like you have anxiety but don't know how to reduce its presence in the moments when it's overwhelming you? If so, you are not alone and in today's episode Quinn teaches listeners that there is hope for utilizing your body to help calm and ground yourself in those anxious moments. In the episode, Quinn teaches listeners: One thought that is important for fighting back against anxiety Three senses you can focus on to ground yourself in an anxious moment One physical moment you can engage in to release dopamine in the brain Mind Renewal Tip: Anxiety often comes from feeling like you don't know your purpose or believing that having anxiety has become your only purpose. But as believers, we have the hope that our purpose is so much greater than our circumstances. Scripture Renewal Tip: If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 1 Corinthians 13: 1-3 Resources: hubermanlab.com caltech.edu Social Isolation Transforms the Brain

Jason received his PhD from Michigan State University, and is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. He's also the author of Love Me True: Overcoming the Surprising Ways We Deceive in Relationships.Jason's primary research centers around the love lives of couples, and it was fascinating, as a married couple ourselves, to have a marriage and family therapist on the podcast. We found Jason to be extremely personable, insightful, and fun to talk with. We were able to ask him several questions that have come up in our marriage, as well as some that we've heard from others. Some of our favorite topics of discussion included the Gottman Ratio (the famous research that has been done showing that healthy and lasting relationships often have at least 5 positive interactions for every one negative one), some of his favorite marriage advice, how to have conflict in a healthy way, and what are some signs that he sees commonly in marriages that last.

Selling the Couch with Melvin Varghese, Ph.D.
The pandemic has dramatically shifted and shaped the world of therapy, and it's prompted all of us to take a close look at our work and how we can do it best. We have learned that we, as therapists, can deploy our unique skill set in different realms than we originally planned, such as moving from the therapy room to bringing in online course income. This transition brings a struggle that is common to many clinicians, and it causes a tremendous amount of fear and imposter syndrome. Join us for this open and honest conversation. Our Featured GuestMineela ChandMineela Chand is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Wayne, PA. Besides being a corporate leadership coach and a certified brain spotting therapist who also has a divinity degree, she is a dear friend and colleague of several years. Since 2022, I have done monthly brain spotting sessions with Mineela, which I've found to be extremely beneficial. In today's session, we are discussing the three biggest roadblocks in going from clinical to online course income. Mineela has worked with a lot of therapists and online course creators, and she uses her background and experience to walk us through the mindset shifts in this transition.Mineela's LinkedIn and EmailYou'll Learn:How we can focus on our unique skills as therapists instead of the “role” we take onWhy the caring and helping professions are difficult to transition from–and leave us feeling guilty for wanting to do something elseThe three mindset roadblocks in the transition away from therapy to online course income:Visibility--How am I going to be seen?Ability–Can I do this?Stability–Will I have the finances to make it work?Why doing our work outside the privacy of the therapy room takes us outside our comfort zoneHow our personal trauma keeps us from showing up with a new level of visibilityHow Mineela handled “the fear monster” when it showed up for herHow it helps to “create a bridge” between what you read/learn and what you DO (Mineela explains how to create a bridge between what you know about therapy and what you want to do with an online course.)

Ryan Dusick is an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist with an MA in Clinical Psychology and the founding drummer of the world's most popular band, Maroon 5. As a boy, he dreamt of pitching for the Dodgers and writing adventure novels. Arm injuries sidelined his burgeoning baseball career, just as rock music became his new passion and purpose. Founding the band Kara's Flowers in 1994 with fellow Brentwood High School students Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden, and Adam Levine, Ryan worked tirelessly through his college years at UCLA before the band changed its name to Maroon 5 and finally had its first hit record, Songs About Jane.

Struggling with physical and mental health challenges, Ryan finally overcame his struggles in 2016, when he began his journey of recovery, culminating in a new life path full of meaning, purpose, and fulfillment. Now working as a mental health professional at The Missing Peace Center for Anxiety in Agoura Hills, CA, Ryan is spreading the message that recovery is possible, and some astounding things can come with it.

Native or tribal sovereignty refers to the right of American Indians and Alaska Natives to govern themselves. In some definitions native or tribal sovereignty is an inherent right, whether the tribe is federally recognized or not. But what does native sovereignty mean to Indigenous peoples, non-Indigenous peoples, governments, organizations, and beyond? Gregg Castro, Cultural Director for the Association of Ramaytush Ohlone, has worked on preserving his Indigenous heritage for three decades as a writer-activist and by educating the broader world about the Ramaytush Ohlone—the Indigenous people of the land now called San Francisco. In this episode, Gregg is joined by Lazzuly Mello, licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Core Faculty in the Community Mental Health Program at CIIS, for an illuminating conversation exploring the complexities of native sovereignty from his perspective as a member and advocate for multiple California tribes.

Emotional normalization is the process of making sense of your emotions based on your life context, which can help alleviate emotional dysregulation. I also discuss the importance of validation as the first step in the top-down self-regulation process, followed by normalization. Emotions are inherently the result of a biological process, which can be more deeply understood through the neuroscience of the Polyvagal Theory.SSIEC: https://www.justinlmft.com/ssiec Polyvagal Trauma Recovery System: https://www.justinlmft.com/traumareliefNational Suicide Prevention Hotline - 1 (800) 273-8255National Domestic Violence Hotline -1 (800) 799-7233LGBT Trevor Project Lifeline - 1 (866) 488-7386National Sexual Assault Hotline - 1 (800) 656-4673Crisis Text Line - Text “HOME” to 741741Call 911 for emergencyThis and other content produced by Justin Sunseri (“JustinLMFT”) (i.e; podcast, YouTube, Instagram, etc.) is not therapy, not intended to be therapy or be a replacement for therapy.

Do you struggle with wanting to control situations? Some people struggle to hand over the reins to others because they believe their way is the best way to do things.

In today's episode, Quinn teaches listeners how to: Identify if they are struggling with controlling behavior The root of the need for control And one way of thinking that needs to be eliminated to stop controlling thinking Mind Renewal Tip We often think control is what brings up peace but often surrendering control is the peace we are looking for. Scripture Renewal Tip In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. Proverbs 16:9

In one of the most magical and intimately REAL conversations I've had on the podcast, I had the honor of connecting with Rebecca Capps to talk about everything from food addiction, body shaming, childhood trauma wounds, and how to align with alchemy + the magic of miracles (ala, A Course in Miracles) as a way to RISE above the madness in your mind. Rebecca was even married by the master of A Course in Miracles herself, Marianne Williamson! Breaking cycles of childhood and ancestral trauma wounds can be tricky, as it's deeply rooted within our DNA + subconscious patterns, which is the root cause of self-sabotage. Meaning, it become somewhat of a silent addiction, and one that is connected to everything you do, how you feel about yourself, and how you treat your body in the process. As Rebecca speaks about in this episode, "The body is on display", meaning food as a coping mechanism can be challenging as it's the addiction you wear for everyone to see. We also uncover the powerful concept of "Food as a sense of safety + control", which explains WHY you may have a deeply rooted relationship to food that may actually be limiting your life. Rebecca and I both share a past of battling with our bodies, and the stories we keep telling ourselves, this narrative that Rebecca speaks about that is a pivotal part of trauma healing and uncovering root cause "sabotage". How do we shift out of this trauma story? Listen to this episode to uncover the secrets of healing self-sabotage!About Rebecca: Rebecca Capps is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist committed to helping clients feel good about their body and happy in life—without food guilt or dieting.

Should young men in yeshiva develop a plan for parnassa? If so, when? Does having a parnassa plan also apply to those going into teaching and rabbanus? Is “I want to learn” enough of a plan? Does having a plan apply to young women? Do girls in shidduchim ever ask “does he have a plan”? Do boys in shidduchim ask: “does she have a plan for supporting a family” or “does her family have money”? ***Guest Hosted by Ari Wasserman *** Author of "Making it Work", "Making it ALL Work" (for women) and 10 other Seforim, Maggid Shiur, Yerushalayim with Rabbi Dovid Kaplan – Mashgiach Ruchani, Yeshivas Beis Yisrael – 15:27 with Mrs. Elisheva Liss – Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Lecturer and Author – 40:16 with Mrs. Miriam Levitan – Noted Shadchan, Eretz Yisroel – 1:04:36 with Rabbi Nesanel (“Tani”) Lauer - Mashgiach Ruchani, Maarava Machon Rubin – 1:14:03 with Mrs. Bella Beer – Dating coach – 1:40:00 מראי מקומות
