In today’s episode, Amy talks with Dr. Jennifer Rhodes about her new book—Toxic Insecurity: The Path of Relational Spirituality and Our Search for Authentic Love. Dr. Rhodes is an intuitive healer and is a licensed clinical psychologist, dating/relationship coach, image consultant, and a 200-hour ISHTA trained yogi/meditation teacher. She is passionate about helping the next generation believe in their own healing gifts and is on a mission to help prevent the toxic insecurity she has seen in her practice for the past 10+ years.
Amy and Dr. Rhodes discuss the spiritual dimensions of relationships and how through experiencing the pain and joy of our relationships we grow and develop on our spiritual path. And, if we don’t learn the lessons from one relationship to the next, souls tend to jump into other bodies until we learn the lesson our soul came into this lifetime to learn. Jennie also explains what our “Twin Flame” relationship is all about and how it can serve our highest soul evolution.
Dr. Jennie received her doctoral degree in clinical psychology from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at Yeshiva University in 2008. She completed her APA accredited internship and her first post-doctoral fellowship in Infant and Preschool Mental Health at Tulane University Medical School where she was trained in attachment theory and relationship-based clinical intervention. During this time she also received her Basic and Advanced Divorce Mediation certification at Loyola Law School. In 2010, Dr. Rhodes completed post-doctoral training in forensic psychology at the Institute for Violence, Abuse and Trauma. Over the years, Dr. Rhodes has presented to academic audiences on the assessment of parent-child relationships in the context of custody disputes with allegations of abuse and trauma as well as issues pertaining to coping with narcissistic partners. She formally served on the editorial board of the Journal of Child Custody.
