Jordan Reid of Ramshackle Glam Returns | Our Tell-All Conversation on Anxiety, Divorce, + Falling on Our Faces
#218: Blogger phenom Jordan Reid of RamshackleGlam.com returns for our tell-all conversation on anxiety, divorce, falling on our faces, and her new project: The Big Activity Book For Anxious People (Penguin Random House, May 2019) co-created with illustrator Erin Williams, which is currently #1 in Art Therapy and Relaxation on Amazon. We’re talking: perfectionistic tendencies, anxiety attacks, massive life transitions, and her new single mom life. Oh, and we swap tales of hitting our absolute most humiliating rock bottoms before we became “recovering actors” in L.A. Schadenfreude for all! Love, Ellie Knaus
P.S. Retail therapy is now available at our brand Atomic Moms shop!
Special thanks to Owen O’Neill, our NYC sound engineer, and Jeremy Turner for our original theme composition.

How to Handle Change + Anxiety in Motherhood| Emily Price, LCSW, SEP
(1/27/2017) How do we handle the transitions we experience as mothers without losing our minds and keeping our sense of humor? In podcast #114, mom-in-chief Ellie Knaus interviews psychotherapist and favorite relative EMILY PRICE about how to handle big change and all the anxiety that comes along with it. Emily gives us grounding techniques that can keep us from freaking out no matter what life throws at us: whether that be an unexpected pregnancy (or expected), moving, switching jobs, or family loss. We also call B.S. on our “get over it” culture and share what to do instead. But first Ellie brings on her husband Adam to share their ridiculous Sunday night...You’ll never think of “mother-daughter twinning” in quite the same way.
Emily Price is a licensed clinical social worker and mom of 2 boys (#3 coming in March) living and working in New York City. She’s been extensively trained in cognitive behavioral therapy and is a certified somatic experiencing practitioner. She is a psychotherapist in private practice and specializes in treating anxiety and trauma, particularly OCD, phobias, and PTSD.
