January 24, 2020

Ep #195 - Rachel Kaplan, a licensed psychotherapist turned podcast host joins the show this week for a deep conversation. Rachel has been practicing therapy for 13 years and recalls getting involved in the field after focusing her high-school honors project on emotional healing. She pursued Eastern Religions and Spirituality academically as an undergraduate while living in Nepal and India. She studied Western psychological methodologies in graduate school receiving her masters in Counseling Psychology.

On top of her world spanning journey, she brings 15 years of teaching yoga, extensive training in cutting edge therapeutic modalities, such as Gestalt therapy and others, thousands of psychotherapy sessions, and exposure to all kinds of alternative healing modalities. Through all of this exploration, Rachel feels she uncovered the most basic and absolutely necessary tenant of emotional healing.

In today's interview, we dive into Rachel's story, how she approaches emotional healing, and why she now runs a podcast on the topic. It's a great conversation!

Winning With Words - Ep 5 of 5 - Say It Like You Mean It…

Winning With Words - Ep 5 of 5 - Say It Like You Mean It…

December 24, 2019

Ep 187 - Welcome to Part 5 of my 5-part miniseries titled, "Winning With Words." This episode is titled "Say It Like You Mean It" and our conversation focuses around the subject of tonality. The way we use our words and the emphasis we put on them can change the meaning of what we say and especially how people interpret what we say. The classic example of this is when kids issue a half-hearted apology only to be rebuked with the phrase, "Say it like you mean it."

If you missed Part 1, 2, 3, or 4, of this mini-series, make sure to listen back to episodes #179, #181, #183, and #185 to get the full value of this content.

Going forward, we will return to our regular Teaching Tuesday format and will soon release a new mini-series. Make sure that you are subscribed to the podcast so that you receive automatic notifications when these go live and you never miss an episode. Our "Interview Friday" episodes will remain unchanged and you can continue to expect more great expert interviews each and every Friday.
