Podcast Episode: Emotion Coaching: One of the Most Important Parenting Practices

July 8, 2019

When our children get upset, most of us get upset too. If the child is angry at us, we feel defensive; like the child's feelings are unwarranted. If he's upset at something else, we want to make him feel better, to make the emotions go away as quickly as possible.

The art of emotion coaching is a parenting technique that helps children understand their feelings. When parents emotion coach, their children learn how emotions work and how to react to feelings in healthy ways. This starts by recognizing your child’s feelings. Many parents are able to see the positive emotions a child expresses, but drawing close to a child who is angry or sad can take some practice. While it takes effort to teach your child about feelings and appropriate behaviors, it is time well spent. Your relationship with your child will be stronger and your child will be more prepared for the challenges life can bring.

In today's episode we are joined by Amanda Green, who works with Jake at Zephyr Wellness as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Amanda's focus is on children, age three to 10 in play and has knowledge in creating behavior plans to help parents out at home with their children.

Podcast Episode: Toxic Positivity vs Validation and Hope

Podcast Episode: Toxic Positivity vs Validation and Hope

July 1, 2019

We have all seen toxic positivity in action, it’s those Instagram posts that say “Good vibes only” or “Just be positive.” These posts fail to recognize that we are meant to feel all emotions, “positive” and “negative”, which is the healthier route.

Toxic positivity strips someone away of the validation they deserve and leaves them feeling ‘guilty’. Guilty for ‘contributing to their problems’, for ‘not being strong enough’ to get better by themselves. Instead of searching for ways to deal with the situation, people may start to doubt themselves, at a time when they need their confidence the most.

In today's episode Jake is joined by Whitney Hawkins Goodman, LMFT and owner of The Collaborative Counseling Center. Where they have a chat about ‘Toxic positivity’, how to avoid it and lean more to emotional acceptance.

Podcast Episode: A Vision With A Plan Can Change The World

Podcast Episode: A Vision With A Plan Can Change The World

June 24, 2019

When you donate your time, skills, or money, you are generally doing it to make something better. Whether you help build a house, or provide library books or a school to children, or help fund research for a disease, the world is becoming a slightly better place with each donation.

As you become generous, you feel powerful and walk taller. You see the world in a more positive light. As you notice the plight of others, your perspective shifts and you don't look upon your own problems as much. The little things can be ignored, because you realize how little they truly are. Even though the world didn't really change, your perspective causes you to look at it in a better light.

Our guest for tomorrow’s episode are exactly that, good deed doers. Fighters for a better tomorrow. We are excited to welcome back Michael Sodini who is the founder of Walk Talk America and we also welcome Shrae Miller who is in the process of starting a non-profit group home for foster families.

Podcast Episode: What I Wish Someone Had Told Me About How Therapy Actually Works

Podcast Episode: What I Wish Someone Had Told Me About How Therapy Actually Works

May 27, 2019

Because of the many misconceptions about therapy, you may be reluctant to try it out. Even if you know the realities instead of the myths, you may feel nervous about trying it yourself. Overcoming that nervousness is worth it. That’s because any time your quality of life isn’t what you want it to be, therapy can help.

In today's episode Jake will go through the process of therapy, the expectation on both the clinician and patient side. People often don’t commit to therapy because they fear they will be stuck there until they die. There’s nothing wrong with continuing therapy for the rest of your life, but you don’t have to. Therapists don’t want your money that badly.
