Audrey Holst: Perfectionism in Entrepreneurs – TPS478

Audrey Holst guides ambitious high performers and high achievers who are ready to stop micromanaging their lives with perfectionism so they can actually start living. She’s the founder of the Fortitude & Flow® Process which uses mindful and embodied practices to create transformation. Her work goes beyond mindset and addresses perfectionism’s impossible standards at their root cause.

Highlights

Audrey shares her own experience with perfectionism and how that led to the work she does.
She kept trying to do things right so she could be accepted socially, but never felt as if she got it. It’s an interesting story.
Perfectionists often wait till the last minute to finish something that has a due date.
Once she got on the entrepreneurial path, she saw that entrepreneurship and perfectionism don’t go well together.
Audrey’s mother was a perfectionist. Once she understood the concept of inherited emotions and behaviors, it helped Audrey move forward.
Getting in touch with the body sensations that went along with her perfectionism enhanced Audrey’s self-awareness.
The style of yoga that Audrey studied was more about pushing through discomfort rather than embracing it.
When you notice something, don’t try to intellectualize or change it. Take a deep breath and just notice it and stay with it.
Perfectionism is a coping or survival mechanism.
Perfectionists often isolate because they don’t want anyone to know that they’re not sure how to handle something. So they don’t ask for help.
As you go through the process of letting go of some of your perfectionism, it will improve your relationships with other people in the world around you.
We talk about how being bullied at school contributed to her perfectionism and her willingness to move beyond it.
It takes courage to change your thought patterns and behaviors.
It helps to work with someone else when you’re trying to go through this process so that it doesn’t feel overwhelming and you know that someone has your back.
It takes a long time to reverse the perfectionism habit.
Audrey has developed five archetypes of perfectionism and they are available on her site.

170 – Ebony Rutko – Presence, Listening and Deep Curiosity Using NARM For Yourself and Clients

Do you ever meet someone whose spirit surrounds your own with warmth and light and knowing?

Yeah…Ebony Rutko is that spirit in human form. A clinical social worker with her practice in Canada, Ebony applies her advanced clinical training in NeuroAffective Relational Model™ (NARM) to help adults address issues with attachment, relational and developmental traumas. 

If you’re new around here and have no idea what NARM is, Ebony’s heart-centered introduction to the model provides some high-vibe insight. If you’re a fan from way back, you know I love talking all things NARM. Ebony’s ongoing exploration of healing herself using NARM is a reminder that when we as therapists do our internal work, we build foundations strong enough to provide support for others.

Ebony delivers straightforward observations about our search for connection and our desire to let go of the protective strategies that no longer serve us.

We get in deep for a pithy episode: NARM, psychedelics, expansive universal truths. If you’re at all curious about post-traumatic healing, unconditional love, or using ayahuasca/plant medicines in supportive practice, there’s some beautiful abundance here, as Ebony likes to say, about the sacred processes we engage with to heal ourselves and help our clients.

GUEST BIO

Ebony Rutko is a white, queer, cis-female clinical social worker located in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada. She owns a private practice and provides in-person and remote therapy to adults using the NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM). Ebony believes in the power of connection, and that true healing happens as we cultivate a greater capacity to hold ourselves with presence and curiosity.

Ed Coambs: Financial Therapy for Couples & Individuals – TPS477

Ed Coambs is a couples therapist specializing in financial therapy. He loves helping couples go from despair and overwhelm to financial intimacy. It is not always an easy process, but it is one worth taking. He uses the latest in love and brain science to help couples flourish financially.

Highlights

Ed tells us how he evolved from firefighter and financial advisor to financial therapist.
There’s so much emotion around money and no one tells us how to deal with that. Therapists don’t talk about money and financial planners and advisors don’t talk about emotions.
Part of Ed’s journey was understanding his own psychological issues.
We all have a relationship with money, much of which develops in early childhood.
When couples argue about money, they are often arguing about their emotional needs.
Couples often act out their parents’ relationship with money.
We talk about how childhood experiences affect your relationship with money.
Income disparity between siblings is common.
Ed describes what financial intimacy is really about.
We talk about shame and Ed shares his experience with shame around money and how to overcome it.
Understanding brain chemistry helps us to understand our responses about money.

169 – Jess Sprengle – The Cranky Therapist on Social Media, Workaholism, and Recovery

Spoiler Alert: The Cranky Therapist is not at all cranky. At least, this is the conclusion I came to after our chat. Instead, Jess Sprengle, the meme queen behind a catchy social persona, manages her private practice as well as her popular profiles and keeps herself grounded, in part, because she does her own work. 

It’s important to highlight for folks that as therapists, we get something out of the therapy and that’s part of what motivates us to choose this profession. That said, there’s an opposite side of the coin: workaholism. 

While empathy is critical in what we do, we can push that resource to its limits, adding more clients to our roster when we just don’t have the time, space, or capacity to do so. Jess credits social media, specifically her IG and TikTok accounts, for providing a new outlet through which she can bond.

Yes, followers can and do base assumptions about Jess’ private life/profession/looks, you name it. She appreciates the privilege of her visibility while also admitting that those assumptions hurt. That’s where the lessons she’s learned from her own healing journey keep her from spiraling. “I didn’t create the account to have followers. I created the account because I wanted to do something particular, which I do feel like I’m doing.” 

GUEST BIO

Jess Sprengle owns and operates a private practice in Austin, TX specializing in the care and treatment of adolescents, young adults, adults, and families impacted by eating disorders, disordered eating, body image disturbances, and adjacent issues. She is a champion of freedom, justice, and liberation for all people and all bodies and practices from an intersectional, social justice-aligned lens. Jess considers herself to be a “radically genuine” therapist and seeks to embody authenticity and “humanness” with clients. She brings this to the social media world through her instagram account, @thecrankytherapist, and Twitter, @JessSprengleLPC.

Be Kind to Yourself for Better Business Results – TPS476

In today’s episode, I talk about techniques for developing peace of mind and how to use your inner resources to maximize your business. These techniques will help you create what you want and let go of some of the tension that you may be feeling because of everything that’s going on in the world right now.

Highlights

Here are the main topics I discuss in today’s podcast. For more detailed information, read the transcript below the links section.
Spend time in nature. Go for a walk. Walk with someone else, if possible.
Either meditate or sit quietly watching your thoughts for 10 minutes a day. Imagine that you are letting go of everything.
Do stretches every morning.
Train yourself not to rush.
When you start worrying, imagine a positive future.
As you’re getting ready to fall asleep, take 10 deep diaphragmatic breaths. If you have trouble falling asleep, you might want to try using the supplement Theanine.
Pay attention to your sleep habits and get enough sleep.
Get a massage or do self-massage.
Keep track of your income and spending. Manage your cash flow.
Connect to other people.
Share what you’re feeling with someone else. Ask for help if necessary.
Leave space in your calendar.

HERE’S THE TRANSCRIPT

The transcript is created via www.otter.ai. It’s not perfect, but you’ll get the idea.

Today, I’d like to talk about a techniques for developing that peace of mind. And being able to use your inner resources to maximize your business, to be able to create what you want. And to let go of some of the tension, you may be feeling because of everything that’s going on now.

00:43

Before I get to the techniques, I’d like to remind you that on September 9, I’m having a, an event, I don’t want to call it a webinar, it’s a little more than that. It’s called the money energy tune up. In it, I’m going to use a energy technique that I’ve learned over the years, to get you in a comfortable space, and to be able to deal with your money from a much more rational place rather than fear. So I hope you’ll think about attending this, it’s on September 9, there will be a replay. And if you go to https://ProsperityPlace.com/tuneup, you’ll see what it’s all about. I will have a link to the show notes on www.prosperityplace.com.

01:44

So, let’s talk about being kind to yourself, what are some of the things that you can do to remove some of your tension and, and just feel better about yourself and your life? I made a list today of the things that came to my mind, and I wonder what you can think of for yourself. One of the things that comes to mind first is to spend time in nature. There are studies that show that people who see grass, green grass, on a regular basis, are actually in a better shape emotionally than people who don’t. I go out for a walk every day and make sure I see green, and birds. And actually we walk in a park by my house. So I see the other dogs, we being my dog and me and I actually walk with someone, which is a very good idea.

02:54

Studies show that when you exercise with someone else, and that means walking, if or anything else that you do with someone that you get more value from the exercise. So spending time in nature, walking in nature, walking with someone else really helps. I know at the end of the day, I meet this person from my neighborhood at five o’clock. And we walk together for part of the way because he lives in a different neighborhood. So we walk part of the way and I walk a total of a mile and a half to two miles a day. And I focus on what I’m doing and how I’m breathing, and and just what’s going on.

Joan’s Money Energy Tuneup

168 – Melody Li – Inclusive Therapists, Decolonization, Internalized Biases, and Land-Back Movements

Melody Li has built a practice around getting smashy–and I am here for it! This Hong Kong-born, diasporic settler is a queer therapist of Color, mental health liberation activist, and all around badass. Their work focuses on liberating communities long neglected or, worse, harmed outright by whiteness in therapeutic spaces. What I find so magical about Melody is that they knew what they wanted but couldn’t find it in the current therapeutic structure so they created it themself. For the community, by the community. Boom.

Melody, lays the groundwork for our exploration of decolonization, internalized biases, and land-back movements. If you’re new to any of these topics (even if you’re not), Melody’s personal and professional insights will guide your continued un-doctrination. This conversation is wall-to-wall mic drop moments, y’all, as well as an unveiling of Melody’s latest initiative.

If you’re anything like me (which, duh, you’re listening so of course we’re like-minds), you’ll walk away from this convo inspired af, wondering why we’re still applying words like “history” across all narratives, and ready to get smashy within your own limiting environments.

GUEST CONTACT INFO & BIO

Melody Li is a colony-born migrant and diasporic settler on Turtle Island. They are a queer therapist of Color, mental health liberation activist and keynote speaker. They founded Inclusive Therapists: a mental health directory and community that celebrates and centers people with marginalized identities (especially QTBIPOC). Melody offers collective care and education focusing on decolonizing mental health and healing racialized trauma.
