Are you carrying emotional wounds that are keeping you stuck... and maybe even hurting your relationship? Today’s guest Vienna Pharaon — recognized as one of the great relationship influencers of our time — is here to help. And in this episode, she’s revealing her expert strategies for healing trauma, nurturing trust, and building the thriving, rock-solid relationship you’ve always dreamed of.
Vienna Pharaon is the founder of Mindful Marriage and Family Therapy and is one of the most sought after Licensed Therapists in New York City. She has a way of leading people back home, connecting deeply to their needs, and helping people connect to their voice in order to create the change they wish to see in themselves and their relationships. She is the relationship expert for Motherly, and has been featured in The Economist, Fatherly, The New York Post, and Vogue, to name a few. With 300K followers on Instagram, Vienna’s hugely popular teachings help people across the globe to become more mindful about their emotional health and build deeply fulfilling relationships.
There’s so much gold in this conversation, but the part I loved most was Vienna’s insights on how to break the cycle of trauma so we can avoid passing our own emotional wounds onto future generations. As a step-mama (aka bonus-mama), I found this insanely important, and it’s something I’m working on within myself.
So if you want to discover the truth about love that lasts, get practical strategies on strengthening your relationship, and heal your emotional traumas once and for all, then pop in those earbuds… this one’s for you.
