Podcast Description

 

As a Toxic Relationship Specialist, my mission is to bring hope, healing, and FREEDOM to those whose lives have been affected by toxic relationships and emotional abuse. Living in environments that are not healthy for you can cause this type of abuse to be accepted as “normal.” The truth is…IT’S NOT NORMAL…IT’S TOXIC! Learn to not only recognize a red flag when you see one but also have the courage to choose yourself and move forward in a life that is free from the control of others.

How Do I Do This?

How Do I Do This?

What would it be like to be out? What would it be like to be free? What would it be like to be able to go to work and be happy? What would it be like to go out with friends and not have to worry about being judged? What does it look like over there? Start visualizing it, and the pathway will show up—not like the yellow brick road, OK? Some of our paths have a lot of speed bumps, and some of our paths have a lot of potholes. Some of our paths are gravel and you don’t have shoes. But if you can see where you want to go, regardless of the gravel and the speed bumps and the potholes, you’re going to get there. Because you know that’s where you want to be; no matter what you have to go through, that’s where you want to be. And that makes a whole lot more sense than not knowing where you want to go and staying where you are.

What If I’m Lonely?

What If I’m Lonely?

Hey everybody, welcome back! A while back someone had written me about the fears of leaving a toxic relationship. In fact, I’ve had several people contact me. But I want to address one particular fear today, and that is the fear of being lonely. The definition of...

Triggers….UUGG! Can you please go away?

If you're reading this, you need to know that you aren't the only one out there struggling with an unhealthy environment or dealing with people in your life that may not be healthy for you. Unhealthy relationships come in all different categories and levels, whether...

The SMMEEAARRR Campaign

The SMMEEAARRR Campaign

Defending yourself against a smear campaign is a complete waste of time. It will suck the emotional energy straight out of you. Smear campaigns are set up by the toxic people to get a reaction. Don’t give it to them. Those who love you know the truth, right? You’re not going to need to convince the people who already love you. Those who don’t? They don’t matter. You don’t need to convince them either. Giving energy to a smear campaign is giving your time and energy back to them. They have used up enough of your time and energy.

What to Expect

What to Expect

If you are in a situation that you are feeling like you are going to have to run away to get out, it is overwhelmingly scary. Just know that the fear usually comes from you moving from an environment that you are familiar in to unknown territory.

Even though your environment wasn’t healthy, at least you knew what to expect. In stepping out, you have no idea what’s going to happen out there.

The unknown is always scary, and the familiar is always easier to stay in. So be prepared to be scared! Because it is scary!

Decisions

Decisions

Toxic personalities tend to feel like everything is about them. We’ve talked about it before; your toxic personality—right, wrong, or indifferent—tends to be insecure. Their controlling and attention traits are geared toward trying to make themselves feel more secure.

From your career to your friends, your hair color, which shoes you’re wearing…they make everything involve them, and we end up having very little say regarding our daily life decisions. A lot of times we have very little to say about our overall well-being. The more they control, the less we control. Because, Heaven forbid, we stand up to ourselves.

“I was aware of physical abuse; however, I never fully understood the severe impact that came from mental or emotional abuse until I started working with this amazing woman. My time working with Dr. Heidi has helped me to start finding my light again among all the darkness I was surrounded by.”

“Learning the characteristics of a toxic person wasn’t just about freeing myself from my past, but giving me the tools to see toxic behaviors before they will ever affect me in the future. It opened the doors to who I am, to my happiness, and to self-love.”

“Dr. Heidi blew my mind. On a whim, I went to one of her meetings to learn more about the narcissist. Listening to her, it was like a light bulb went off. From that first meeting and every moment forward, Dr. Heidi has created a safe space where I can confide in her and others that know my pain.”
