Episode #62: What It Takes To Make A Relationship Work with my husband, Kevan Loy

PODCAST BLOG PHOTO (25).png

Do relationships take work or should they be seamless? There’s a shit ton of debate about this and today, I’ve brought on a super special guest to dig into the age old question — my husband Kevan!

We are certainly not experts when it comes to relationships — you can listen to a bunch of previous podcast episodes around relationships, sex and beyond — but I do think that almost 10 years of going through the shit with a human entitles us to have some shit to say that’s worth sharing. And hell, we are DEFINITELY experts on our relationship.

And today on the podcast, we deep dive into some pretty dense topics around relationship longevity, health and beyond and I am THE MOST excited to share this conversation with you all.

Things we discuss on todays episode:

  • The real story of how we met

  • The crazy story of how and why we got legally married (our first wedding!)

  • Our differing perspectives on marriage

  • The concept of possession in intimate relationships

  • How to keep a relationship thriving

Episode #58: What the f*ck to do after a breakup with Jessica Smith

PODCAST BLOG PHOTO (21).png

I am so excited to have Jessica back on the podcast to talk about BREAKUPS.

Let’s be honest — the dating world these days is tough as nails. And while Cosmo may be full of dating tips, relationship tips and sex tips, the thing we never hear about is how to navigate a breakup. Which feels SO backwards because I’d bet that 95% of you have been through one in your lives — I know I have.

And it’s gut wrenching. Heartbreaking. And there’s no support attached to that. So as always, I brought the MF support with this incredibly open and vulnerable conversation.

As a reminder, Jessica Smith is the author of YOUR TWENTIES, a book about change and how to take good care of yourself as a 20-something navigating the “real world.” Jess is the host of two podcasts, THAT VALLEY VIBE, a show about wellness and CAREER COACHING WITH JESSNESS, a show about doing your best work in the world, landing job interviews and how to build a personal brand. When she’s not writing or recording podcasts you can find her meeting with people 1:1 about how Doterra Essential Oils can positively impact their health and hosting events with her oil community, The Wellness Squad.

In today’s episode we cover topics like:

  • Her story of getting broken up with the man she thought she was going to marry

  • The 5 stages of a breakup

  • What to do when you feel like you can’t function

  • The journey back to yourself post breakup

  • Body work as a powerful positive coping mechanism

  • The answers you’re looking for? They are within you.

  • Finding closure in the most unexpected way

When you hear the word therapy, does it bring up positive or negative emotions for you?

Therapy used to be something I didn’t think I needed and gave a it a major bad rap. But my perspective on the matter has changed drastically in the last few months as I’ve explored my own experience of working with a therapist. Yup, I am a major therapy convert. And I’m talking about my own experience in therapy for the first time on todays episode.

So to talk about all the things and give you the most candid conversation about a topic so polarizing, I brought back on to the podcast one of my favorite humans on the planet, therapist and sex, relationships and mental health expert Rachel Wright.

Things we discuss in today’s episode:

  • Why Rachel wanted to be a therapist

  • How therapy and theatre are so linked

  • Her first experience of therapy as a fourteen year old (and the juicy deets on why her parents shoved her into therapy in the first place)

  • The good, the bad & the ugly of the therapy model

  • Where to even start on finding the right therapist for you

  • Why I finally took the deep dive and started going to therapy

  • Self care starts with mental health

  • How to know if you need therapy

  • A huge aha moment I had in therapy a few weeks ago

Episode #9: How to communicate effectively with your partner & rekindle the spark in your relationship with Rachel and Kyle Wright

PODCAST BLOG PHOTO (3).png

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


"A lot of the times we have stories going on in our heads about sex or pleasure in our heads that we don't even know are there. And they're from the media or our familIes or 'Mom told me that if you do x y and z you're a slut' so I can't do those things, and you have no idea that that's playing in the background the whole time and that's why you're not orgasm-ing in bed."

What would it look like to revolutionize how we share, teach, and talk about sex, relationships, and mental health? That’s exactly what Rachel + Kyle Wright have set out to do. Wright Wellness Center is bridging the gap between a self-help book and a therapist’s couch — bringing psycho-education to life and equipping people with the tools they need (and that our society doesn't teach us!) to have fulfilling and healthy relationships and lives. 

Here are a few things we discussed in today’s episode:

  • The story of how Rachel & Kyle met
  • The effect building a business together has had on their marriage
  • Where my love of post it notes started
  • How to move out of the "roommate trap" in your relationship, and why you're in it in the first place
  • Communication tools to open the door to a happy and healthy relationship
  • How to actually understand the emotions you and your partner are experiencing
  • How to get back to being intimate when you've lost the spark in your relationship
  • Love languages as a tool for understanding how you show love and receive love
  • Why putting yourself first is CRUCIAL for your relationship
