by neeta bhushan


Quote: “When we are our true, authentic selves and honor that in ourselves, that is only, honestly, when the magic happens.”
– Dr. Laura Berman

The wisdom shared by today’s guest, Dr. Laura Berman, would have completely changed my life when I experienced loss and grief as a young girl. Laura, a world-renowned therapist and author, opens up about how her closest connections have inspired her career path. She shares how her relationship with her parents, estranged sister, and son–who died from a fentanyl overdose–each had a transformative impact on her work and perspective. 

In this episode we talk about…

  • Being raised by parents in a narcissist-codependent relationship.
  • Becoming interested in understanding sex, love, and relationships due to a parent’s addiction.
  • Losing a child due to fentanyl poisoning and fully experiencing grief. 
  • Communicating with loved ones beyond the physical.
  • Shifting focus to help others connect with themselves, heal, and manifest.

She earned two Masters Degrees and a PhD from New York University, and has spent the past 30 years devoting her career to helping others learn to love and be loved better from a mind, body and spiritual perspective.
