In our previous episode, we covered the topic of enmeshment and home, helping the guest find their way to an inward home that will root them no matter where they go. In this episode, we take a deep dive into her subconscious to examine why “home” feels so far away and what steps need to be taken to reclaim it. As we converse, you’ll hear referenced the Performer Chart. If you’d like to follow along, visit iAmClinic.org/blog/episode-9/

Some of the episodes in our line up are what we call, RelationTips Q&A's, a safe space for everyday folks to come on the show and talk with a therapist about a problem or topic they are struggling with.

These episodes are intended to highlight queer stories with the hope that others can relate and gain insight into their own journeys.

Guests on these episodes bring vulnerability into the space that allows for a deep, emotional exploration of areas that hit deeply for many queer folks.

#8 RelationTips Q&A: Finding Home and Quitting the Performance - Part 1

September 12, 2020

Host Isaac Archuleta sits with his guest who brought a great conundrum to the show, one that many queer people face: how do we live as one integrated being? 

Being a queer person in a professional space, a spiritual person in a gay setting, or even a woman in a man-centered world, integrating all parts of who we are can be quiet the riddle, and the remedy might just surprise you.

 

For our 'RelationTips Q&A’ episodes, our host sits with everyday people to talk about a problem or question they have. Usually, the guest remains anonymous.
