The Love Fix

Dec 31, 2021

Sherry and Carla share their intentions for the New Year and take a Love Fix question about how to know where to even begin where there are so many trauma treatments out there. Then, they welcome Clinical Psychologist, Author, and Trauma Specialist Dr. Heidi Green. She discusses why it’s so important to recognize and work on our trauma, and how every one of us has some type of trauma from our experience with family or just being out in the world. Dr. Heidi also talks with Carla and Sherry about how we project our trauma onto romantic relationships, trauma bonding, and what anxious and avoidants really need from each other to heal and grow.

  • How do the relationships that we have early in life affect us in our attachment style early on? 
  • What do anxious and avoidant attachment styles really need from one another? 
  • How can you start to build a secure attachment with yourself and others, even if you had a traumatic upbringing?

  • “Trauma changes the way that we see everything.” - Heidi 
  • “If you’ve made it to adulthood, you’ve definitely survived some trauma.” - Heidi 
  • “It's almost like you put on these lenses, these trauma lenses, and now this is what you see the world through. Trauma changes the way that we see everything.” - Heidi 
  • “It’s your job as the anxious person to not keep seeking safety from your avoidant partner. It’s to seek safety within yourself.” - Heidi
