Today I am being interviewed by Kellie Jo Holly of Abuse Journals about my path to the healing arts. Kellie is a dynamic woman, who is dedicating her life to helping people leave and heal from abusive relationships. She provides one on one support (sign up for her newsletter and receive a free call to Kellie!) and tons of information online! This woman is one prolific writer!
Here is the beginning of the interview and a link to read the rest of My Path to the Healing Arts over at Abuse Journals:
My path to the healing arts
Kellie: Jodi, you are an exciting and unique individual. Besides being a clinically licensed social worker, your bio describes multiple alternative healing certifications and degrees. It is difficult to find someone who embodies such a holistic approach to mental health. How did you evolve into the woman you are today?
Jodi: Thanks, Kellie! Life is thrilling when I connect with lights in the world such as you! It has been fabulous getting to know you through our blogs at HealthyPlace.com.
My opportunity to learn holistic approaches to health came as most opportunities come to us-through a crisis. My own health crisis happened 15 years ago. Western medicine offered me no relief save, “It’s stress. Take this pill.”
This far from satisfied me. I had deeper questions, a well of curiosity about the body, mind and spirit to satiate. What makes us sick? What makes us heal? I wanted to know. I plugged into study, and tried everything, coming to deeper understanding of my psyche than ever before. Read My Path to The Healing Arts .
