Welcome to Episode 82 of The Madhappy Podcast. This week we are excited to welcome Dr. Elisa Hallerman onto the show to learn more about what motivated her to move away from the entertainment agency world to found her own agency, centered around helping people achieve optimal wellness.
We kick things off as Mason asks Dr. Hallerman to share more about her background and diverse career evolution (1:30). Dr. Hallerman speaks to her sobriety journey and how in part, her yearning to understand addiction and trauma in more depth, led her to pursue a master’s and doctorate from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Depth Psychology and Somatic Studies (7:33).
Mason and Dr. Hallerman discusses the importance of checking in with yourself on a consistent basis to understand the little changes you can make to create a happier and healthier personal lifestyle (18:23), before Dr. Hallerman shares the inspiration behind her new book Soulbriety (29:27).
Dr. Hallerman and Mason get into a conversation about spirituality versus soul (34:47) before wrapping up as Dr. Hallerman talks about the importance of sharing from your scars rather than your wounds (45:30).
