A Date With Darkness Podcast

Jan 21, 2020

A Date With Darkness Podcast is hosted by Dr. Natalie Jones, Psyd, LPCC, a licensed psychotherapist in California. Join Dr. Jones for an intimate discussion about the effects of abuse and healing from relationship trauma. 

Dr. Christiane Northrup, MD OB/GYN and author of Dodging Energy Vampires joins us today to help us understand why we feel drained by the energy that certain people bring to relationships. According to Dr. Northrup, stress from those who continue to challenge our boundaries and drain our emotional health, also cause us to be physically sick. She also shares her personal story of having energy vampires in her life, and how she utilizes coping strategies and screenings to keep them away.
