Inside My Mind: It's a Precarious Place to Be.

Want to know what it’s like to be inside my mind as I wrestle with life and death and everything in between? Here’s your chance! I’m giving you a snapshot of what goes on in my head on a recent “cancer day”. Think of it as reading the thought bubbles floating above comic strip characters. I’m sharing my thought bubbles with you. I’m inviting you in to a sacred and private part of me. I hope by example that you will let others see your thought bubbles too. I bet if we did this more often, our collective empathy towards each other would grow exponentially. And, that’s never a bad thing.

163 – Brenna Guinan – Breaking Down Walls, De-stigmatizing Mental Health, and Having Open Conversations

“You can speak your truth, and you can be honest, and you don’t always need to defend what you did or what you said or how you are. You can just say it.” ~Brenna Guinan

All of my favorite things conspired to make this chat with fellow therapist and host of Real Fckn Talk Brenna Guinan MHC-LP, CRC a must-listen (IMHO):

  • Instagram friendship; 
  • Some witchy topics;
  • and NARM™. 

That last entry is particularly significant because yours truly leads an impromptu NARM(ish) session on the show for the first time! 

Our conversation expanded to include a brief but revealing look at how NARM sessions work. She got to experience firsthand how the process interrupts the old stories we tell ourselves and those we tell others.

There’s a self-professed stubbornness about Brenna to which I think many can relate. She splits her time between licensed mental health counseling and rehabilitation counseling. For those who’ve not heard of rehabilitation counseling before, Brenna describes it as advocating for people (in her case, students) with disabilities so that they’re set up for adulthood – whether they choose to go to college, trade school, or enter the workforce. 

All this professional level-headedness at twenty-seven and a podcast, too? Yes. This is the part where I get to plug my appearance on Brenna’s show while also telling you that Real Fckn Talk is where guests are invited to go there.


Brenna Guinan is a mental health counselor, certified rehabilitation counselor, and the host of REAL FCKN TALK podcast. As a therapist, Brenna is passionate about normalizing discussions about mental health.

High Level Narcissists Eclipse Your Psychological, Emotional and Creative Options

You cannot be the spouse of a high level narcissist and be free to be yourself.  The narcissist takes space in certain crevices of  your mind and heart that cannot be overlooked. 

High level narcissists nibble away at our hope, creativity and optimism. They pick at you here and there. For spouses who are more dependent and vulnerable, they can leave this person  helpless, unable to make their own decisions, immobilized psychologically. 

High level narcissists weaken, deride and humiliate the ones This is delusional on their part.  

After research, study, insights and many efforts you reach an awakening to the truth about the true nature of the high level narcissist. 

Practice self care each day: rest, sleep,  nourishing food, good hydration, movement and exercise that works for you,.

Police Officer To First Responder Clinician: James McLintock

Positive Connections Radio:
E-57: James McLintock LMFT
Police Officer to First Responder Clinician
James always had the passion to be in service to those in need. Early on he became a lifeguard, EMT, and then a Police Officer for the City of Anaheim throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s. In the time post-911 he noticed several of his police teammates coming back from battle and how the negative impacts of war had on his friends. Many were suffering from PTSD, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, trauma, suicidal thoughts, addictions to pain medications and alcohol abuse.
His coworkers were encouraged to get help and attend counseling sessions, however many would not because they feared that the therapists did not have familiarity with working with First Responders and could not really relate to them.
James decided that he would better serve others by becoming a therapist so he would have more credibility than just earning a degree in counseling. James retired as a police officer and went back to school and earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.
Since 2008 James McLintock has been the go-to clinician for First Responders in San Diego, Ca.

Expanding and Deepening Your Individuality

Qualities of Individuality 

Independence of Mind- Respecting your thought processes but remaining flexible to changing your perceptions when research and insight individuates your movement to a new direction.

Trusting your intuition – Flashes of wisdom that move taster than thought. 

Appreciate the forces that created you and how you survived and who you are becoming as a unique individual.

Appreciating you sense of humor – Humor is magic and distinguishes us as individuals.

A scene from a camping site near the ocean describes the beauty and simplicity of family and friend gatherings overlooking the ocean. Campers have set ups that move from motor homes to trucks to small campers. 

This is a lovely scene of people enjoying the cooking and eating of homemade food, children playing games, scooters, bikes; adults talking with one another with warmth, small fires that create warmth and friendship. 

Recall your memories of times you spent in beautiful natural places: ocean, lakes, mountains.  These experiences are calming, enjoyable, hopeful, restorative 

Appreciate yourself as an individual, immerse yourself in beauty every day, get the rest and sleep that you need and deserve, hydration, nourishing food, movement and exercise, listen to beautiful music.
