Welcome back to Therapy Chat! This week, host Laura Reagan, LCSW-C revisits a conversation with an incredible healer and coach. Today’s guest is Mara Glatzel, MSW.
She is an intuitive guide and energy healer for women who facilitates daily conversations about intention, truth, and celebration. A creative leader, Mara is expert at living in her own skin with grace and ease.
At the core of her work is the desire to live a well-intentioned life, which means more joy, grit, and vibrant imperfection to spare. She is MY kind of person—how about you? Her website makes you feel warm, glittery, and nurturing, and her writings and programs are truly inspiring. Want to learn more? Join us!
What you’ll hear in this episode:
- Mara works with women who want to live with more intention and responsibility.
- She likes to take nebulous concepts that are hidden in layers and break them down into tangible, relatable pieces.
- Mara’s work isn’t like other therapies or focused on symptoms, but is based on self-love and self-compassion.
- Mara found this niche after finding herself “not fitting into” the standard therapy role.
- She knows what it means to struggle with body image, fears, and trusting yourself.
- When we sacrifice ourselves in order to “belong” to the world around us, then loneliness is the result.
- You can have all the “right” things happening in your life, and be MISERABLE!
- Mara’s writing background flows perfectly into her intimate newsletter offerings, which happens to be her very favorite place to write!
- Mara is gifted in being able to take about difficult topics in ways that people can receive them.
- Her newsletter features the unusual option, “Click here if you want me to read this to you.” People love it!
- “Why aren’t there MORE spaces in which people are lovingly spoken to?”
- Mara offers several programs throughout the year, many of which Laura enjoys participating in.
- Mara’s podcast, “Needy,” is for anyone who struggles to acknowledge their own needs. Check it out here!
