314 Kendra Nicole “Peace & Profits” and Jessica Cingel “Reproductive Psychiatry”

In the first half of today’s show I welcome Kendra Nicole, the CEO of Kendra Nicole & The Finance Femme, and the creator of Scalable Firms and Peace & Profits. After graduating from Clemson University (Corporate Finance and Accounting), Kendra quickly moved up the corporate ladder while working for corporations such as GE. This work led her to pursue her love for small business strategy by founding The Finance Femme, an accounting and fractional CFO firm. Kendra also hosts an exclusive 6 month mentorship/coaching and retreat program called Peace & Profits. And her Scalable Firms program where she coaches other accounting and finance professionals on brand and business building. Kendra is a wife, mom, and podcast host.

Today Kendra talks about how to make time for what’s important, moving away from profits first, getting clear about what you really want, tending to your taxes year-round so that tax season isn’t such a burden, making a money date for yourself, and balancing work and parenting.

____________

Joining me in the second half of the show is nurse practitioner Jessica Cingel. After working on an inpatient psychiatric unit and with adults with autism spectrum disorder, Jessica went back to school to pursue her passion for individualized care in pregnancy and reproductive health. As a certified nurse midwife, she’s had the honor of guiding individuals and families through life transitions, both joyous and difficult. During her eight years of midwifery practice, she became frustrated with the lack of mental health support available to her clients. Jessica decided that if these services weren’t available, she’d have to create them herself. She returned to school again and obtained licensure as a nurse practitioner in psychiatry. She created Kinship Health to offer help to individuals struggling to balance their mental and emotional health with the needs of their families, careers, and school.

Today Jessica introduces us to reproductive psychiatry, how perinatal mood and anxiety disorders manifest, how to identify them, and why it’s important to not ignore it. We also talk about some of the big picture issues around mental health like access to care, where the system is failing folks, cultural complexities, the insurance problems, and where the system is starting to get it right (there’s still much work needed though!).

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda from Radiokingston.org.

Admiral Grey is a multidisciplinary artist and performer whose new work, The Human Dream Project, records people describing dreams they have had, and then illustrates the recordings using colorful, surreal puppetry and original music.A multimedia project that continues to expand, Admiral developed a hotline for the project so that people can call in their dreams 24 hours a day, and has plans to create dream phone booths around the world where people can call in from. She has also made stop motion videos illustrating dreams, as well as colorful and absurd ‘commercials’ for the hotline using live action, puppetry, and animation. The show has had workshop performances locally at Opus 40 and in New York City at St. Ann’s Warehouse, and is now preparing to launch its full length premiere at The Tank in Manhattan in April. The most ambitious Human Dream Project performance to date, the show will illustrate a wide variety of dreams, incorporate countless puppets and setpieces that she makes by hand, include a new score by sound designer and musical director Chad Raines, and will feature a new cast of incredible artists and performers, several of which are Kingston locals.

Today we learn about the conception of the Human Dream Project and why Admiral pours her loving energy into it. We also talk about art making, art as a spiritual practice, dreams, dreams as a shared human experience, the hard parts of being an artist and the rewards, and what Admiral does when she has some down time.

312 Political Parties with Marielena Ferrer

This month’s installment of Spirituality and Politics dives into the subject of political parties. Are they still useful or not? Do we actually need them? Are they causing more harm than good? These are the questions Marielena and I wander through on the show with a little help from this article by Katherine Ellison. She’s pro political party with lots of reform, and I am feeling pessimistic and say they’ve got to go! What do you think??? Here are some more thoughts on the subject.

311 Khara Croswaite Brindle “Ruptured Mother-Daughter Relationships”

Today on the show… Khara Croswaite Brindle is a licensed mental health therapist in private practice in in Denver, Colorado. She holds various roles, including financial therapist, TEDx Speaker, burnout consultant, author, and professor. Her new book is Understanding Ruptured Mother-Daughter Relationships: Guiding the Adult Daughter’s Healing Journey through the Estrangement Energy Cycle (Rowman & Littlefield, July 1, 2023). You can learn more and access a wealth of tools at estrangementenergycycle.com

With as many as 1 in 12 people being estranged from a family member, Khara shares her experience and knowledge gained assisting several female clients through the stages of estrangement. The choice is a challenging one and typically follows an emotional cycle that eventually lessens the grief and leads the adult daughter to discover a new sense of self. While each individual’s journey is unique, therapists, as well as those contemplating or trying to heal from estrangement, can benefit from recognizing the energy cycle of estrangement. Khara talks about the incorrect assumptions that are made about estrangement, the social stigma, how to support someone who is considering or going through estrangement, as well as how to support your children if you are going through the stages of estrangement.

PLUS! We have a little time to talk about burnout and how it became something that she now supports others through. A subject that is right up my alley as ending burnout is an antidote to the patriarchy!

I continue on once our conversations completes to share some info about the Mother Wound that I came across many years ago. It’s a fascinating read and contemplation for anyone out there as we’re all contributing to it by participating in the patriarchal structures and systems.

Here’s the information on the Campaign for Child Care happening in New York State. And here’s the article I mentioned about child care in The Cut.

Finally, here’s the New Moon report. Happy Lunar New Year!
