I didn't understand the impact that shame could have on one's life until this episode. Today's guest Eve Milford knows all too well about the tendency of women to push people away when they experience shame. As both a certified Intimacy, Love, and Relationship Therapist and Women’s Pelvic Health Specialist, Eve preaches the importance of going into your body instead of outside your body. In this episode, she and I talk about the importance of awareness versus overcoming shame and we discuss the intersection of shame and pleasure.

Eve Milford works with a host of intimacy, pleasure, pain, and blockage issues women face and uses an integrated approach that transforms trauma, wounding, and feelings of numbness into reconnecting more positively with the mind, body, spirit, and soul.

Listen in as we discuss all the ways that shame impacts relationships, why feeling shame is okay, and how to build healthy habits even when you don't want to.
