Bonus Episode: Big T, Little t - An interview with trauma therapist Megan Irwin
Play • 47 min
In this very special bonus episode of DNA Surprises, I’m joined by Megan Irwin, who will be facilitating a session on Trauma at the DNA Surprise Retreat. Megan is a licensed therapist specializing in grief and loss, trauma/PTSD, and associated challenges. She serves as a compassionate witness and guide for her clients’ healing and personal growth. 

Megan will facilitate a session called “Big T, Little t” on how DNA surprise traumas affect our bodies and minds. She’ll also empower us with tools to manage the big feelings we experience following our surprises.

In our conversation, we discuss what trauma is, why there are different labels for trauma, and recommendations for coping. She even shows me how to be more compassionate for myself in my own healing journey - we all have things to learn.
