The Love Fix

Sep 23, 2022

Sherry and Carla start off the episode talking about self care, and take a Love Fix question from a listener in her 30’s who can’t seem to shake anxiety when she doesn’t hear from her partner. They then welcome Tana Espino, a LMFT and Somatic Coach,  guiding women to heal codependency and anxiety in relationships. Tana talks about how you can learn to shift from an anxious to secure attachment, and move from codependency to confidence. She discusses the different nervous system responses, and the tools we can use to learn to have healthy and empowering responses to the world around us.

  • What does it look like once our attachment systems are activated? 
  • Accessing our internal world looks differently for each individual, and it’s a highly personal thing. That’s why it’s best to work with a therapist or trained individual who can support you through the process.
