What if "mental health" isn't everything we've been told?
What if there's more to it than just a “brain chemistry imbalance?”
What if what we consider a pathology is actually an ability and a possibility?
What if these are not permanent conditions but ones,
that with the proper interventions, can actually be changed?
Welcome to the Kaleidoscope of Possibilities: Alternative Perspectives on Mental Health, a podcast hosted by Dr. Adriana Popescu, a licensed psychologist, addiction and trauma specialist, and empowerment coach. In each episode, Dr. Adriana examines what is beyond the traditional point of view of mental health diagnosis, care, and treatment. She speaks with leaders and visionaries in the fields of Energy Psychology, consciousness, healing, and empowerment about what is beyond what we have decided we know about mental illness.
She also explores the unique and fascinating stories of individuals, and those who care for them, who have used “alternative” treatments and paths to recovery. This show is a journey of discovering the possibilities of holistic care and treatment through a variety of lenses: from the spiritual to the shamanic, the naturopathic and beyond. Each conversation is designed to empower listeners to embrace their own awareness, gifts and capacities, and to create a greater world with them.
I see everything as energy, and that everything is interconnected. So you can’t really treat the body without also treating the mind. And if you want to change something that isn’t working, a place where someone is stuck, you’ve got to shift the energies. And we can do that through a variety of modalities that are incredibly powerful. – Dr. Adriana
