Understanding ADHD, Addiction, and Stress as a Coping Mechanism w/ Dr. Gabor Mate

I am so pleased to welcome Dr. Gabor Mate to the show.

To say I am grateful for this moment, for you would be a severe understatement.

Digesting his work along side the work of Rudolf Steiner’s work during my Waldorf teacher training years ago completely changed the direction of my path. 

For most of my life I said I would never become a parent because I didn’t believe I had the capacity to transform the pain and disconnection I was carrying.

But after becoming a teacher and witnessing the power of this wisdom, so much healing took place.  

Years later, I not only gained the courage to become a mother, but when my daughter was 6 weeks old I opened the doors of my own preschool where I began working very closely with parents, educating them on the importance of emotional development, secure attachment, and conscious parenting. 

And what I have witnessed over the last 8 years has been mind blowing.

My daughter is about to turn 8 and I am in awe of her on a daily basis, so just so much gratitude to his teachings.

Enjoy the show!



  1. I love Gabor Mate.. his book “in the realm of hungry ghosts” was a catalyst to me opening my play based preschool and coaching parents in respectful child care methods!
