Dr. Nicole LePera ON: Why You Feel Stuck in Your Past & Finding the Self-Awareness to Heal From Trauma
Play • 58 min

Dr. Nicole LePera chats with Jay Shetty to talk about trauma as the root of all mental health problems. They discuss how one can utilize their own environment to self heal, why people are stuck with the same adaptive mechanism that doesn’t help them change, and taking many small steps on our way to complete healing.

Dr. Nicole, a trained clinical psychologist, created the SelfHealers Circle to allow people to go on their own journey and create who they want to become. Dr. Nicole lives in Los Angeles, California and loves anywhere that involves the stillness (and quiet) of nature. She currently hosts the SelfHealers Soundboard podcast with Jenna Weakland focused on recognizing patterns, healing from the past, and creating oneself.
