106 – Gregory Koufacos – Walking Alongside Emerging Men in the Real World

“I’m very grateful for the wounds that I have acquired in my life. And I see now how those wounds were openings to something greater.” ~Gregory Koufacos

The patriarchy, amiright?! They’re an easy (and rightfully) targeted group. However, there’s an entire generation growing up under the influence of our current system. What are we – therapists and society in general – doing to help them heal from the twin scourges of addiction and toxic masculinity? 

Gregory Koufacos MA, LCADC, NCRC, founder and CEO of Velocity Mentoring, is the bright light in the dark tunnel, not at the end of it. He and Sarah discuss his work with emerging men and bond over what addiction therapy practitioners can do to better support this community. 

So where do we begin? What can we do to advance the healing? Glad you asked! 

Primal Method, Greg’s soon-to-be-published book, addresses those very same questions. “A big part of the process is teaching men that we cannot take what we want, right?” It’s common-sense messaging that’s rarely reinforced within the male population. 

“I want to immediately start to work with them and mentor them and move alongside life with them, to lead them and to go on a path of victory.”

Light in the tunnel!

105 – Robin Winn – Human Design: Who You Really Are

“Each person is uniquely designed and each person is part of a big, giant puzzle of humanity.” ~Robin Winn

This episode is like…your brain on pure, vibrational energy. Robin Winn, veteran therapist, Human Design specialist, and the best-selling author of Understanding Your Clients Through Human Design, chats with Sarah about how this relatively new system of awareness can radically alter the way we interact and empower us to see (and appreciate!) each other for who we really are.

Using Sarah’s chart as an example, Robin explains some of the systems key components, including the four types of humanity. The results are compelling. Her analysis zeros in on this Wounded Healer’s strengths, weaknesses, and childhood struggles. “This is why it’s so helpful for a therapist or a coach or a business!” Robin says. “If I could do this for therapists, if I could use this with coaches, just think how much more quickly they could support their clients on their path and how empowering it would be!” 

Just think, indeed! 

Robin’s so passionate about the impact Human Design can have on the parent-child relationship as well as client-therapist interactions, she’s offering CWH listeners a free copy of her book! Simply drop her an email using “Sarah” in the subject line to robin@clientsandhumandesign.com. Mind. Blown. Thank you, Robin!

104 – Sarah Buino – Coronavirus: The State of Ourselves

“I’ve been freaking out about this lately, and I saw on The Today Show yesterday, one of their medical experts said, “we have to remember that this is temporary.” And as soon as I heard that, there was something in me that took a breath and was able to pause and stop freaking out for just a moment.” ~Sarah Buino

Sarah offers insights and practices for leaning into confidence and flexibility as tools in a time of crisis. With a balance of practical considerations as a business owner, personal reflection, and a trusty tarot card reading, Sarah shares a meditation and an app that just may help us get through this.

103 – Chuck Bernsohn – Breaking Out of the Binary

“It’s hard to ask people to be comfortable with confusion. To let people sit in that a little is a challenge for most of us but vitally important. I see growth happening in discomfort.” ~Chuck Bernsohn

Pronouns are powerful. And comfort is overrated. In this episode, Sarah chats with Chuck Bernsohn, advocate for LGBTQ+ and chronic illness communities, about the profound – and provoking – conversations taking place around descriptive language norms and how word choice has the power to heal long-standing systems of oppression. 

As a non-binary queer person, Chuck knows firsthand how gendered language is used to reinforce institutional and personal biases. As a trans-affirming gender equity trainer, they work with both management teams and staff to create workplaces that are inclusive of all genders. 

If you’re a beginning ally worried about using gender-neutral language incorrectly (or forgetting to use it at all), don’t worry, you probably will at some point. And that’s okay! Fragility – in all its forms – needs to be shattered in order for healing to begin. Walk into difficult conversations. Listen as someone speaks their truth. Arm yourself with tools to retrain your brain. 

Chuck recommends this graphic novel on gender-neutral pronoun usage and this simple exercise: every time you leave the house, silently acknowledge every person you pass with a they/them pronoun. Easy! “You have to take risks, right? You have to practice that language and you have to make mistakes and you have to get corrected.”

102 – Katie Vernoy and Curt Widhalm – The Modern Therapist’s Survival Guide

How do you show up when you’re a therapist (or therapist-in-training)? It’s this existential question that formed the foundation for The Modern Therapist’s Survival Guide, a podcast created by Katie Vernoy and Curt Widhalm. 

If you’ve ever struggled with the prevailing wisdom that therapists should exist in session only as blank slates, you’re not alone. “I was taught to be beige,” says Katie of her formative training. But the idea of working from an emotionless center didn’t sit well with her or Curt. So they built an online space in which practitioner authenticity, and all the challenges that came with that vulnerability, could be explored. 

As if the podcast wasn’t enough, Katie and Curt also created Therapy Reimagined: The Modern Therapist Conference, a yearly event celebrating diversity, innovation, and connection for the #moderntherapist IRL.

Of course, Curt and Katie serve up some healer and wounded healer realness and get into the thorny issue of continuing education hours. But Curt and Katie aren’t the types to rail against the CEU system or the country’s warped insurance model (ok maybe a little). Instead, they’ve joined forces to combat outdated traditions, educate new and not-so-new therapists alike, and build a better model for the future of mental health and welfare, 

This year’s Therapy Reimagined conference will be held on September 25-26,2020 in Universal City, CA.

101 – Sarah Prager – Creating Safe Space

“Sometimes, we need permission to be as awesome as we are.” ~Sarah Prager

You know that old saying about strangers being friends you just haven’t met yet? This episode is exactly that. 

Sarah Prager LPC, LAC, is the clinical manager of co-occurring treatment at AllHealth Network Colorado as well as an EMDR practitioner and a Daring Way facilitator. So, that’s TWO Sarahs in conversation about codependency, empathy, shame and Brené Brown for the price of one show! 

But the best part is Sarah’s personal journey story. She came to this profession by accident! Sort of. The second-best part is that Sarah and Sarah became acquainted by accident. Sort of. 

“Now that I look back on my life, I realize I was always supposed to be doing this,” she says. “I’ve seen addiction and mental health everywhere from my childhood and I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. It wasn’t an accident.” 

So how did she get here? Originally a musical theater major, Sarah’s post-graduation search for work led her to a summer camp for traumatized girls. And, just like that, the next chapter of her life was written: performing arts major ditches the drama for trauma. 

Now several degrees removed from her dreams of Broadway stardom, her focus is squarely on fostering an environment in which clients can follow their own unique paths toward healing. “I don’t take credit for people’s healing. But because I’m open to their healing, and I hold space for them to do that, I think it happens and it’s great. I love it. I feel it very deeply when someone else is healing their stuff.” Sarah’s honors her clients and her own wounded healer with a compassion that allows everyone’s authenticity to reign.

100 – OG listeners Margaret and Rachel – Be On Your Own Journey

A flight attendant and a music teacher walk into a podcast… But not just any podcast, mind you. This is CWH’s 100th episode! To celebrate, OG listeners Rachel and Margaret join the show to get giggly and get deep. 

They bond over their favorite episode (10!), and turn the tables on Sarah with a few questions of their own. Tons of fun, loads of a-ha! moments, and a couple dozen swears (naturally). Plus, the scoop on how Charlie the pyrite skull became the show’s mascot.   

“You can be in service to others and still be on your own journey yourself,” That’s Margaret, a multitasking mother, musician, teacher, freelancer, and Patreon of this podcast, describing a CWH truth she’s come to rely on while pursuing her own degree in social work. “I had this illusion that people who are therapists and people who help others have to have all their shit together already before doing that. I always felt like, well, I don’t have my shit together so how can I help anybody else?” This podcast isn’t called Conversations With A Wounded Healer for nothing! 

 

For superfan and flight attendant Rachel, the emotional stakes of her day-job couldn’t be higher (pun intended). She’s paid to literally help passengers keep their sh*t together! Beyond that though, she credits CWH showing her how to just be after resurfacing from an emotionally raw 2019. “Listening to your podcast, it was the first time that I realized ‘Oh, no, like, therapists can be human beings and they can be flawed and complicated and that’s ok!’ That’s been the main part of my journey and realizing that I actually do want to go back to school to be a therapist.” Low life moments lead to higher lessons, everybody!

100 episodes in, this supportive community of wounded healers continues to grow and amaze with their insight and energy. Whether you’re starting out here or have listened forever, thank you!

099 – Rachel Alexandria – The Enneagram Episode

There are thousands of online personality tests, all designed to help you uncover your type — or, at least provide an inventory of adjectives that probably, maybe, sort of describe you. The Enneagram is not a modern survey or sliding scale of attributes. Nor is it a superficial list of words. It’s a system with ancient roots based in sacred geometry. 

“To know the Enneagram,” says energy healer Rachel Alexandria, “is to have access to information about yourself that makes you feel like you’re not broken, you’re not wrong, and you’re not alone.” 

Rachel is a former psychotherapist who found herself dissatisfied with the limits inherent to office-bound therapy. She wanted to support her clients in the spaces between their visits: where they lived, how they worked, the projects they needed to complete. With the Enneagram’s personality model as her foundation, she created a healing practice dedicated to accessing energies and guiding clients through their radical transformations. “I work with people to mainly help them create what they’ve really been aching to build.” 

If you’re new to the Enneagram model, Rachel shares some common principles in the episode using herself and Sarah as examples (types 8 and 3, respectively). In addition to her Enneagram work, Rachel is an author and a practitioner of tapping therapy. The practice is yet another way she promotes healing and wellbeing without limits. “I really want people to suffer less, have better lives.”
