Description

 "Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery" will help those who want to heal to move from being fragmented to whole. 

Hi, I'm Barb! I'm a boundaries coach and a woman in recovery. I share my experience, strength and hope from 12 step recovery in each episode. They're all 20 minutes or less and each episode is about a specific topic. 

Many life lessons from 12 step recovery are applicable to those in and outside of recovery. This podcast brings some of those lessons to the airwaves, including such topics as learning acceptance, recognizing and overcoming victim mentality and establishing healthy boundaries.

When you have a lifelong, ingrained pattern of people-pleasing behavior, it can be extremely difficult to undo, especially when it is a behavior we believe is keeping us safe. But I am living proof that it can be undone and it all starts with awareness. This week’s episode 268 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how to find freedom from people-pleasing habits!Support the show by becoming a Patreon member!

I didn’t understand until I got into recovery that all of my attempts to connect with other people were in fact, me chasing them. I didn’t realize that in both my romantic relationships and friendships I was putting way more work into maintaining the relationship than they were. True connection means each person has a balanced commitment and emotional investment in the relationship, rather than one person doing everything. This week’s episode 267 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about ho...
Learning that I had a victim mentality and coming out of it was - hands down - the biggest mindset shift from my recovery. For that reason, this has been a huge topic of conversation on the podcast and something I will continue talking about as things come up to help others do the same. This week’s episode 266 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how to stop victimizing yourself and reclaim your power!Support the show by becoming a Patreon member!

Most of us have never been taught to manage our feelings, making this one of the most difficult parts of recovery. When we have been accustomed to pushing our feelings aside, we lose the ability to recognize our feelings or generate our own feelings, and therefore, never get to a place of feeling things on purpose. This week’s episode 265 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how to embrace emotional sovereignty- taking ownership of your feelings, not others’ feelings.Support the show b...
I had an experience recently that I now refer to as “the pit of doom.” In reflection, I realized that the tools I have gained from recovery have allowed me to recover from this experience in a matter of weeks, whereas, before recovery, this would have weighed on me for years. This week’s episode 264 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about the 10 self-care strategies I used to escape the pit of doom!Support the show by becoming a Patreon member!

Living with roommates can be challenging, especially when people aren’t pulling their weight with housework. For those of us with a history of people-pleasing and co-dependency, it can be even more difficult to undo the behaviors we have allowed for so long and set boundaries around our peace. On episode 263 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I help Melanie, another coaching client with the tools she needs to approach conflict resolution in her home with confidence!Support the show by becomi...
Since last week’s coaching call was so successful, I wanted to continue the podcast coaching series with another client, Erika. She joins me today hoping to find serenity through a difficult breakup while co-parenting their child and still living under the same roof.

I am doing something different on the podcast this week by hosting a live coaching call with a client to show what working with a boundaries coach might look like.

Content Warning: This episode contains mentions of suicide and suicide attempts. The trauma we experience as children stays with us and can manifest into mindset blocks, negative self-worth, and coping mechanisms that turn into addiction. Today’s guest Wendy Foster shares how, through recovery, she was able to overcome her addiction, take her power back, and help others do the same.

I know in the core of my being that just because something looks bad or feels bad doesn’t mean it IS bad, at least not in the long run.

When I started this series, I only envisioned having two parts. But as I started recording, I realized that between working at Yale and now running my own business, I had so much more to share. After all, so much of our time and energy is spent at our place of work making this a huge area of our lives where boundaries are extremely important. This week’s episode 258 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how to transform work-life balance with boundaries!If you haven’t listened to parts ...
Last week on the podcast, I shared some scenarios in which I helped some of my clients set boundaries in the workplace, helping them achieve the work-life balance they have been longing for. This week’s episode is a continuation of that as I continue to share my advice for creating balance in your workplace through boundaries. This week’s episode 257 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how to transform work-life balance with boundaries!If you haven’t listened to part 1, I recommend yo...
Many of my group and private clients come to me specifically for issues in the workplace. Interestingly enough, even when they come to me for help in other areas of their lives, they often have massive shifts in the workplace, realizing they can have the work-life balance they never thought was possible.

It will be impossible for you to walk through life with any kind of confidence and compassion if you don’t stop beating yourself up.

One of the most important things I’ve learned to do in recovery is how to have difficult conversations. My inability and unwillingness to have difficult conversations perpetuated my codependence, leading me to suffer in situations just because I was not willing to have the conversations that would resolve them.

Traditionally, step 5 in 12-step recovery is where we admit to God, to ourselves, and to another person the exact nature of our own wrongs. The idea is that we get to take a look at the things we’ve been doing in our lives that are creating chaos, dysfunction and wreckage and acknowledge them. In the ACA version of the 12 steps, we instead inventory our family system, acknowledging that we are a product of our environment. This week’s episode 253 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about he...
Through recovery, I have radically changed my ways, healed my trauma, and changed my deeply entrenched patterns of behavior. By sharing my and my family’s secrets, I hope to show that dysfunction doesn’t always look the way you might think so that you might recognize patterns of your own dysfunction and begin to heal in the ways that I have healed. This week on episode 252 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I am spillin’ more tea on my family secrets, sharing how family dysfunction gets pass...
We often say in recovery, “You’re as sick as your secrets.” That being said, I've decided to share my family’s secrets (as well as some of my own) as part of my journey to heal and to identify with other people so they know they’re not alone. This week on episode 251 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I am spillin’ the tea on my family secrets, sharing how family dysfunction gets passed down.Support the show by becoming a Patreon member!

Whenever I hear clients say something along the lines of “I have to…” I like to reframe their sentence to instead say, ‘I get to…” or “I could do…”.
