On the latest episode of the Marketing Like a Mother podcast, host Michelle Pontvert talks with Erin McCarthy, Ph.D. Erin is a Unified Mindfulness Certified Coach and Trainer, IMTA Certified Mindfulness teacher, APPA Certified Philosophical Counsellor, award-winning professor, author, and mama of twin teens.

She is the Director of Humanities for the International Society for Contemplative Research and a Mind and Life Research Fellow. A long-time meditator, Erin came to teach mindfulness and self-compassion through her interest in and scholarship on Contemplative Education and Buddhist Philosophy. An educator for over two decades, she now works as a Mindfulness Coach and uses evidence-based techniques to work with women to help them live a life of flourishing.

With thousands of hours of training in a variety of mindfulness modalities, she knows first-hand the transformative power of mindfulness and self-compassion to help heal from stress, anxiety, and trauma, be it physical, emotional, or mental. In her classes and with her 1:1 coaching clients, she uses a trauma-informed approach to help people heal and become their most calm, confident, and capable selves.
