• Everyone has needs, there’s no avoiding them. In order to "be well" we need to meet those needs. But in our Western culture being "needy" is viewed as a weakness, and it can be painful to accept that we have needs.

  • Relationships are hard, and making them last is even harder. Today Forrest and I explore how we can be happier and healthier in all of our relationships alongside a wonderful clinician, teacher, and researcher: Dr. Stan Tatkin.

  • We generally focus on topics related to mental health on the Being Well Podcast, but there's nothing like a pandemic to throw the importance of our physical health into sharp relief. Today Forrest is joined by Dr. Tim Spector to explore the importance of personalizing your nutrition, how our diet can help fight COVID, and why most everything we've been told about food is wrong.

  • I was so happy to be joined by Tara Brach on this episode of Being Well. We explored how we can find more compassion and acceptance while maintaining our motivation to change ourselves, and our world, in positive ways.

  • On today’s episode we’re exploring dissociation in detail, including what it is, the function it serves, the experiences that can lead to dissociation, and what we can do about it.
