The Savvy Shrink joins Mental Health News Radio Network as one of its thirty six podcasts dedicated to mental and behavioural health and well-being.
Counselors Melanie Vann and Melissa Richards with host Kristin Walker discussing how people with high empathy can be starved emotionally. Putting your hearts on the line day in and day out can become draining and unhealthy. How do we stop the madness when someone in high drama is bleeding us dry? We also discuss how emotional manipulators purposely manage us down in order to keep us giving them what they need.
Join counselors Melanie Vann and Melissa Richards with host Kristin Sunanta Walker discussing how highly empathic individuals end up walking on eggshells while navigating relationships. Loose editing on this one as we really bare our souls and get into the muck of emotional mortar fire. How do we identify these patterns early on and decide whether or not we want to engage.
The shows where we are steeped in our own vulnerability are always the most downloaded. This is one of those shows.
Join the discussion with counselors Melanie Vann and Melissa Richards and host Kristin Sunanta Walker as they discuss how trauma bonds are formed. Imperative to know when you’ve been hooked and how to begin to move out of those toxic relationships.
You can’t put it into words, but something is happening to you. Your stomach churns, your heart aches, and the tension in your marriage is making you feel weary and a little crazy. The constant criticism, disrespect, cruelty, deceit, and gross indifference are eroding your confidence and breaking your spirit and you don’t know who to talk to or where to turn.
Today our guest on Mental Health News Radio is Leslie Vernick, a clinical social worker, relationship coach, speaker and author. Her best-selling book The Emotionally Destructive Marriage is what we take a deep dive into today. If you’re feeling voiceless, hopeless, or powerless in your marriage, Leslie will show you a path forward, helping you find your voice and reclaim your hope.

We asked Leslie to share with the questions that are most often asked of her. Get ready to take notes because we cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time.
