Grief, Loss, & the Cult Of Positivity: Interview with The Mental Illness Happy Hour

Hey everyone – my conversation with Paul Gilmartin, host of The Mental Illness Happy Hour, is available now!


This far-ranging conversation on grief, love, enforced positivity, and why it matters in the wider world – it’s a long listen, but worth it.

The licensed therapist shares about the well-meaning but misguided “cult of positivity” after tragedies, emotional dissonance, grief support, having difficult conversations and how she dealt with the sudden death of her partner 10 years ago.

Paul opens the show with letters from audience members, so if you’re tuning in to listen to my conversation with Paul, it begins around the 17 minute mark.
