And let the F-bombs fly!********Kristie Fuller is a practicing LMHC via telehealth for clients in Florida, by being her sweary genuine self: " I help people who are intimidated by stuffy, bored, tired, and traditional style therapy. It's just fuckin' therapy, right? Why can't it be more direct, more brash, real, down to earth, and genuine without all the bullshit?I specialize in working with adults who are ready to deepen their awareness of their internal landscape, so that they can understand who they are, what they are thinking and feeling, and how those interact to create behaviors.My practice is welcoming to everyone looking for someone who is dedicated to creating an environment that is inclusive, diverse, LGBT friendly, sex-positive and neurodivergent-affirming.  My clients enjoy working with me because I create a safe space for them to be truly their authentic self.

It's More Than Just Fucking Rock N Roll
Hiatus Replay!Season 3 Episode 8Original air date: 03/07/2023Music.For most persons it is all through their lives, celebrations, losses, just living. It reminds us of events, places, people, history, and who we are as individuals.I was lucky to grab my friend, Derek Fortin, former lead singer for The Dawn (among his other participation in several bands), to discuss how he sees music in his life while also being an RN and now a director in the medical world. And we also get into how music moves other humans, how it can express things we think, feel or live but we're unable to put it into what we feel are the right words.One of my favorite lyrics is from one of the songs by Paul Simon: My life's so common it disappearsAnd sometimes even musicCannot substitute for tears- Cool, Cool River, album: The Rhythm of the Saints - released 1990Music is a powerful medium to evoke serious emotions of joy, resignation, anger, love and/or sadness. And understanding what another human is living, connecting us to one another.* * * Support the Show.Want more sweary goodness? There's now the availability of Premium Subscription for $3 a month!

WTF Is It Like To Provide Teens With Therapy? It's About Hope & Forgiveness

WTF Is It Like To Provide Teens With Therapy? It's About Hope & Forgiveness
Fuck The Rules PodcastSeason 4 Episode 15One of my favorite people, a colleague,Lynn Polhill joins me to talk about her journey to working with teens. A genuine, kind, wicked smart, hilarious person and I'm also fortunate to be friends with her!More info about Lynn:"Lynn was born, the only daughter of sharecroppers, living rough in the hills of Tennessee... A BIO!!! Fuck that.  I'm just me.  Which is to say, no one particularly special or important or caught up in trying to make it so.  I was born, and moved 5 times before leaving home the first time @ 14, then 3 more times before leaving home for good @ 16.  I majored in Guidance & Counseling, graduated with a BA at the age of 20, and couldn't take myself seriously.  I moved to NYC, learned some things, moved to South Carolina and learned more.  Over the next 23 years I then began a parade of 12 moves that would cover 5 states, and offer a plethora of titles and experiences like no university can manage.  Somewhere along the way I grew up a little, realized I needed to take my career seriously for my son's sake, and decided to get my MA in Marriage & Family Counseling so that I could legitimately claim to do what I'd been doing for 25 years, offering sage wisdom like a bubble gum wrapper could only aspire to produce.  In 2016 I began working as a therapist with kids in the East Moline district, and in 2020 decided to take a chance on UTHS in making them an offer they couldn't refuse.  I was contracted to be an independent therapist working full time as part of CoVId recovery attempts with the students there.  Since then I've written many memos and emails, subsequently deleted, questioning why I chose that population, and offering not so sage advice on what to do with our current population of lost and lonely adolescents. I've been a sitting member of numerous disciplinary meetings, problem solving teams, risk assessment forums and after school clubs, all aimed at providing exactly what I've always wanted to do:  Support and advocate for kids with their families and communities, while staying in the shade of their enthusiastic youth. Along the way I've made some friends, met some really amazing people and hopefully been able to effect the lives of kids and parents for the good.I've never followed a damn rule in my life, not because I was a rebel, but because I couldn't be bothered to get permission to do what just seemed right. * * * Support the Show.Want more sweary goodness?
