So many of us struggle with addiction of some kind. But the topic is still shrouded in secrecy and shame, leaving so many people feeling alone or lost in how to begin their healing. This week, I have my dear friend and human behaviour expert, Jaime Jenkins to join me on the show. Jaime and I walk through the relationship between shame, trauma and addiction. We unpack how we can move from feeling alone and detached from our experiences, toward feeling connected and in control of our journey. And, how we can shift from avoidance and denial of our pain, toward feeling and owning our own journey.


  • The power of song and healing with addiction, ptsd, mental health
  • Addiction is a distraction from presence
  • Our world is created by the questions we ask
  • Breaking up with your breakup
  • How we let go of trauma identity
