Episode 24: Shame Resilience

with Jen Kind, LPC, CDWF, EPC


Is shame keeping you from realizing your value? In this episode, Brodie talks with Jennifer Kind, LPC, CDWF, EPC, a Psychotherapist and coach in Portland, OR who works with people cultivating more shame resilience, self-acceptance, and the ability to be kinder to themselves and others. Jen believes shame holds people back; it is not a good motivator for change. Shame breeds fear, anxiety, depression, and paralysis. It keeps us from becoming who we are; it keeps us from living our truth.



In this episode, we explore:


  • The ways shame holds us back
  • Unhealthy cultural attitudes about vulnerability
  • How there can be no courage without vulnerability
  • Ways shame can manifest in our bodies and emotions
  • Ways to build resilience against shame
  • The connection between shame and body image
