Sasha Heinz, Ph.D: Perfectionism, People-Pleasing and Positive Psychology

Sasha Heinz, Ph.D: Perfectionism, People-Pleasing and Positive Psychology

April 22, 2019

Sasha Heinz, Ph.D., MAPP, Developmental Psychologist and Life Coach, is an expert in Positive Psychology, lasting behavioral change, and the science of getting unstuck. Dr. Heinz has leveraged her academic expertise as a former faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania’s Master of Applied Positive Psychology program to give her clients the tools to change their lives for good. In her private coaching practice, she helps achievement junkies feel as good on the inside as their lives look on the outside. A graduate of Harvard University and a working mom, she’s lived life on the frontline of the battle with perfectionism. So, she can help you with that, too.


Follow Sasha

Dr. Sasha Heinz says, "Therapy didn’t get me unstuck. It helped me understand why I was miserable, but instead of changing anything, I stayed married to that story: my mother, my childhood, feeling pressured to be perfect, yadda yadda. Understanding without changing, I was rolling around in the muck instead of cleaning it up. As a tool for change, “why” fell short.

Then, I got a coach (a year after calling and hanging up on her when I wasn’t ready). The coach helped me unlearn my self-destructive habits and replace them with positive ones. We worked on my mind and my emotions, but, most importantly, took action in a way I hadn’t done in therapy. She helped pull me out of the rough water and find my footing on terra firma.

The concept that life could be lived in a joyful, healthy, and internally driven way was fascinating new terrain for me. If I could make behavioral changes that seemed impossible to me and radically change my relationship with myself, what else could I do? What could I help other people do? I wanted to pour my academic curiosity into the science of well-being, behavioral change, and optimal human functioning. I did—and made it my career.

Since then, I have studied under and taught alongside some of the most influential and innovative psychologists in the field of Positive Psychology, including: Martin Seligman, Ph.D., Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Ph.D., Angela Duckworth, Ph.D., Barry Schwartz, Ph.D., Jonathan Haidt, Ph.D., and Barbara Fredrickson, Ph.D. Not only did they pioneer the psychological study of happiness, but made terms like “flow” and “grit” a part of our colloquial vocabulary. My research at Columbia with Dr. Suniya Luthar focused on the developmental outcomes of both affluent and low-income adolescents."

Matt Fitzgerald: Life is a Marathon - Love, Endurance and Bipolar Disorder

Matt Fitzgerald: Life is a Marathon - Love, Endurance and Bipolar Disorder

March 27, 2019

Meredith's Note: *For those of you who downloaded the first version of this audio, you probably heard the remnants of my hacking cough and snort - the edited version did not make it to iTunes before it gobbled it up and sent it out. You can delete and enjoy a cough-free episode now.* You know, it wouldn't be me and Matt Fitzgerald if I wasn't a complete dingbat AGAIN.

Matt Fitzgerald is an endurance writer known for his powerful and expert advice. His new book, Life is a Marathon: A Memoir of Love and Endurance, is unlike any book he has ever written--and I personally believe if just might be his best, most impactful and amazing.

A New Hampshire native, Matt became a runner at the age of eleven, after running the last mile of the 1983 Boston Marathon with his father (who had run the whole thing) and his two brothers. By that time Matt was already a writer (specifically a comedic poet), having declared his intention to make his future career as a writer at the age of nine. He never changed his mind.

Although he never intended to marry his passions for sports, fitness, and writing, that’s how it worked out. Before he’d even graduated from high school Matt was making a little money writing articles about the exploits of his Oyster River High School Bobcats Cross Country Team for a local weekly newspaper.

Matt moved to California for no particular reason in 1995, two years after earning a B.A. in English from Haverford College (a DIII track and cross country “powerhouse” where Matt had intended to run but did not because of burnout). Willing to take the first writing job he could find in San Francisco, Matt received an offer from Bill Katovsky, the original founder of Triathlete, to join the tiny staff of an endurance sports startup magazine based in Sausalito.

This opportunity has led to every subsequent opportunity in Matt’s career, which has included stints at Triathlete, AthletesVillage.com, Active.com, and Competitor Group. Matt’s byline has appeared in a long list of national publications including Bicycling, Maxim, Men’s Fitness, Men’s Health, Men’s Journal, Outside, Shape, Stuff, and Women’s Health. The son of a novelist, Matt has a special passion for writing books. His best-known titles include Racing Weight, Brain Training for Runners, and Triathlete Magazine’s Essential Week-by-Week Training Guide.

A certified sports nutritionist, Matt has served as a consultant to numerous sports nutrition companies, including Energy First, Healthy Directions, PacificHealth Labs, and Next Proteins. Having coached for Carmichael Training Systems in the early 2000’s, Matt continues to design readymade training plans for triathletes and runners that are sold through TrainingPeaks.com and FinalSurge.com, as well as customized plans available through this website.

Matt intends to keep racing until he can’t. He’s run a bunch of marathons and countless shorter running events since returning to the sport at age 27. In 1998 he branched out to triathlons, and four years later completed his first (and only) Ironman. Matt lives in Northern California with his wife, Nataki, who is more important to him than running and writing.

Heather B. Armstrong: From Dooce to the Valedictorian of Being Dead

Heather B. Armstrong: From Dooce to the Valedictorian of Being Dead

March 19, 2019

Big fan girl moment speaking with Heather B. Armstrong --founder of Dooce.com --and author of the upcoming book, The Valedictorian of Being Dead. And happy 100th episode, podcast :)

I think the intro from Heather B. Armstrong's famous blog, Dooce.com, probably describes her best:

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong. When I first wrote a bio for this site I called myself a SAHM—a Stay At Home Mom, or, Shit Ass Ho Motherfucker. More than a decade later I am now what’s referred to as a FTSWM—a Full-Time Single Working Mom, or, Fuck That Shit Where’s Marijuana.

This used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works.

Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride. dooce is back. And she’s talking about herself in the third person, so you know you better have a barf bag at the ready.

I came, I talked, and I fan-girled with this authentic AF mom, writer and advocate.
