How do you find yourself after surviving an intensely traumatic event? One thing people don’t often realize about having PTSD is that it impacts the way in which you see everything, including yourself. Second guessing becomes first  nature and distrust of everything becomes a way of life. But what if the way to overcome the impact of these events was to do the exact opposite; to lean into who you are and work on connecting inward? Therapist Tiffany Cutrone tells us her personal story of surviving a kidnapping and sexual assault that lead her to distrusting herself so intensely that she forced herself to change who she was. In her healing story, she was able to find ways to identify when she was seeing life through a trauma lens and not in line with her authentic self. Through coming back to who she was, amplifying her voice in advocacy and a heavy dose of therapy, she realized that living as her authentic self was best for her AND the community of clients who need her. Top reasons to listen to the entire episode: Hear Tiffany’s story of surviving a highly traumatic event and how it impacted her identity. Understand the role of self doubt after experiencing trauma. Learn how advocacy work became a part of Tiffany’s healing. Find ways and reasons to reconnect with yourself after surviving a traumatic event   An intense listen, but also incredibly inspiring.  Full Show Notes Here:  www.rebelmente.com/t-talk-podcast/tiffanycutrone   Connect with Guest* www.risingtidecounseling.org @risingtidecounseling Connect with Shaelene:  Follow Shaelene on TikTok Follow Shaelene on Instagram Work With Shaelene Sign Up To Receive Emails From Shaelene DBT Group Practice Owners FB Group   Thanks for joining us on the T-Talk podcast!

If I could describe Arthalia in a word it would be joy.  Not artificial, superficial joy, but one that radiates into you just by being in her presence. I told her she needs to bottle her stuff up and sell it, because I would be first in line to get me some of that feeling. I would have never known in meeting her that less than just one year ago, she suffered a traumatic loss of her husband of 18 years, only to lose her son two months later.  “Where are the pockets of peace?” She would find herself asking when the waves of life continued to knock her over. Despite these losses, she managed to create a life that is incredibly full.  On this week's episode Arthalia Weekes, LCSW takes us through what it means to navigate loss while pouring into yourself. She shares how she went through milestone moments like birthdays, anniversaries and holidays while still creating space for emotions like love and happiness. The holidays have a way of prescribing “everyone should be happy and grateful right now” to the world, and that tends to have people bracing for impact-especially after losing someone. Top reasons to listen to the entire episode:  Learn tips for navigating hard times this season from Arthalia. Hear her story of enduring traumatic loss in rapid succeeding and choosing to live life fully. Learn what not to say to someone who is going through a hard time after loss. Find ways to give yourself permission to experience positive emotions after a difficult loss. Listen to this episode for a different perspective on grief, a dose of healing but most importantly, a sense of being whole.

Thinking of the holidays already has me feeling tired and overwhelmed-so I thought I would bring the Self Care Queen in, Yunetta Spring-Smith, to school us on the topic!

Top reasons to listen to the entire episode: Understand self care on a more comprehensive level.

If there’s one thing that is often not lacking during family gatherings, it’s unsolicited comments, opinions and advice about how you or others should look and be. There’s also usually a crap ton of food and drinks that get pushed on you and it can be hard to leave these gatherings with a sense of confidence and ease.  Today on T-Talk, I talk with Dr. Breese Annable, eating disorders specialist and DBT psychologist on all things body image, food and family parties when it comes to the holidays. Top reasons to listen to the entire episode: Learn why you need to treat your relationship with  your body as if you were in couples therapy.

What do you picture when you hear “domestic violence”? If you are like many, you imagine something stereotypical between a husband and wife with kids, and unfortunately so much is missing from that picture. How do you recognize you are in a damaging relationship if you haven’t seen relationships otherwise? Oftentimes, it’s not until you are out of a relationship that you understand that it was harmful. Today on T-Talk, I talk with Dr. Kelly Gentry about intimate partner violence and her work with young adults, specifically-college aged women.  In today’s episode we unpack the intricacies of violence in romantic relationships, and the ways in which the victims in these relationships often get overlooked.  Top reasons to listen to the entire episode: Learn the difference between domestic violence and intimate partner violence. Hear about the power of sharing your story and having it heard when it comes to trauma recovery. Find ways to utilize creativity in your healing as well as mindsets to avoid when approaching something new. Listen to Dr. Gentry’s research findings in examining abusive relationships with college aged women. Identify ways to help change the script.  Make sure to share this episode to help normalize this conversation because so many partners are living in silence or even unaware that partner violence actually pertains to their relationship.

When I asked my friend Lenora to be a guest on T Talk and she said she wanted to do an episode on the “other” New Kids on The Block, I wasn’t sure if I needed to bust out my boombox and walkman or this would actually connect back to healing! Of course, with the use of this metaphor, she delivered.  In today’s episode, we talk about what she calls the “Unspoken Entourage” of parts that show up after something bad happens-Trauma, Anxiety, Depression and Grief. Without awareness of who is coming alongside of you, it’s easy for your whole world to be rocked. In today’s tea, we talk about paying attention to the whole system, and treating them together in order to create space for joy.

I have to say, one of the coolest things about being a podcast host is meeting so many awesome people and learning about new ways of healing. Today, I got to do just that. Meet Jess Brock-Pitts, a licensed therapist and certified personal trainer. What’s very cool about Jess is that she is helping people recover from trauma not just in therapy, but through weightlifting! That’s right. She is a trauma informed weight lifter and uses principles from weight lifting to help her clients gain access to parts of themselves that may have felt inaccessible for a majority of their lives.  In this episode, you’ll hear how Jess found weightlifting and how it became an integral part of her own healing. You’ll also hear from me as I talk through some of my own struggles with body image and weight loss, and how Jess works through some of these same issues with her own clients.  Top reasons to listen to the entire episode: Learn about Jess’s work as a therapist and trauma informed weight lifting trainer. Hear the main concepts around what it means to be trauma informed in any space. Listen to ways in which trauma recovery may be halted when it comes to healing. Hear Shaelene’s personal share and struggle with body image.    For anyone noticing an impact on their mental health due to body image, as well as those who know they need body work but don’t love yoga or other moving modalities, give this episode a listen and tell me what you think!

How do you manage jealousy in a relationship? How about when you have multiple relationships? Today’s tea is with Kieran Mcmonagle, a radical trans therapist, coach and consultant who holds expertise in many areas, including polyamory and non-monogamy. Per usual, I ask a TON of questions and get schooled in the area of what it means to be in non-monogamous relationship, the role society plays (again, per usual) in creating issues for individuals who feel they don’t fit in the standard box when it comes to relationships, and so much more. What I love about Kieran is how open he is to sharing parts of his own life in efforts of helping others learn, do better and find healing.  Whether you are considering non-monogamy or not, this episode still has tips for you.  Top reasons to listen to the entire episode: Hear about Kieran’s work as a trans, queer, kinky, gay, polyamorous therapist.   Learn why adding the term “ethical” to non-monogamy can be problematic. Listen to practices that can help regulate intense feelings of jealousy and sadness regardless of your relationship practices Understand the importance of values when it comes to relationships.  Learn about the role of love scarcity in jealousy.  Let Kieran and I know what you think of our talk today. We would love to hear from you!
