In this episode, I had the honour to speak with Dr. Jamie Marich about ongoing and ever changing trauma and addiction recovery. Two of the things she said resonates so deeply for me:
"When I look at change, so much about it is in the healing power of consistency and I think that's fundamentally good for people who have survived complex trauma."
"We may have parts and aspects of self but we all represent a working wholeness. What you have is already inside you. It just may take some processing to fully embrace that as truth and live it fully."
Jamie is one of the bravest and most authentic trauma therapists and experts I know. She speaks openly about living in both addiction recovery and with dissociation, paving the way for our shame to fall away and transformation to emerge, bringing us back into our innate wholeness.
