Episode 16: Anonymous on Overcoming Childhood Sexual Abuse and Self-Harm

So this is interesting. I have my first Anonymous guest on the show. This person offered to come on and talk about their experiences with many different topics such as self-harm, childhood sexual abuse, and learning to take chances with the support of ongoing psychotherapy. She also generously offered to take follow up questions through email at ba04700@gmail.com. Feel free to shoot her a message to say thanks for sharing her story!

Next week will be another Q&A episode, so send me your questions on twitter at http://twitter.com/duffthepsych or through email at duffthepsych@gmail.com

Episode 14: Andrea on Overcoming Self-Harm

This week is another fantastic interview. I got the chance to sit and talk with a friend of mine, Andrea Gustafson, about her experiences with self-harm. More specifically, we talk about non-suicidal cutting, which means slicing yourself with a razor while NOT intending to kill yourself. It was super brave of Andrea to put herself out there and be honest in this episode, so please consider dropping her a line over on twitter at http://twitter.com/ajgus83 to say thank you!

Next week will be another Q & A episode, so as always send your questions to me on twitterhttp://twitter.com/duffthepsych or through email duffthepsych@gmail.com

Episode 13: Daughter with Anxiety, Sex Addiction, and Therapy Terminology

First off – super sorry about the technical glitches this past week. Had to switch to a new webhost because my old one (rhymes with shmost shmator) was being incredibly unhelpful in getting my site back up. That said, we should be in the clear now!

This is a Q&A episode. You all send in some fantastic questions this week and I am super excited to share them. Here’s what I cover in this episode:

-How can I help my daughter who seems to have anxiety like mine?

-Do I have sexual addiction or is my conservative background blowing things out of proportion?

-How do you deal with differing terminology in therapy?
