Tripping Over Therapy | The Symmetry Sessions

In this episode, I talk to Katja Cahoon, a licensed clinical social worker, certified EMDR therapist, and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist about the benefits of using ketamine-assisted psychotherapy for a variety of mental health issues. We'll discuss how it works, what sessions would look like, as well as how safe it is, and why it might be an effective choice for people who aren't making progress with other therapy modalities.

Friend or Frenemy? | The Symmetry Sessions

In this episode, Dr. Danielle Taylor licensed psychologist returns to talk about how to differentiate whether someone is a friend or someone is a frenemy. Who enjoys it when bad things happen to you? Who is happy for you when things are good? How do we get caught up in frenemy relationships? Do you have the boundaries you need in place to foster healthier dynamics? We'll dive into all of this and more!

Compassionate Leadership | The Symmetry Sessions

In this episode, I talk to Dan Zia Joseph, former businessman turned army veteran turned researcher and author, about his new book Backpack to Rucksack: Insight into Leadership & Resilience By Military Experts. We'll discuss leadership psychology, mental health, and resilience in and out of the military. We will also examine how good leadership and caring for people as human beings can help reduce generational trauma, keep personnel healthy, and improve "command climate" as well as how unresolved issues can impact how leaders show up for themselves and for their people and that a growth mindset and vulnerability are the keys to creating collective healing and camaraderie.

Between Theory and Practice | The Symmetry Sessions

In this episode, I talk to Dr. Danielle Taylor licensed psychologist, nationally certified school psychologist, Chief Operating Officer at Spectrum360, and Psychologist at Evolve Psychological Services about how our frame of reference influences our work as therapists and the development of the models we use as well as how some therapeutic approaches fall short because of a lack of lived experiences. We'll dive into the IFS (Internal Family Systems) model of therapy, the responsibilities of leadership in the therapy community, and resourcing skills that might be helpful for when those models aren't enough.
