31: Unhealthy Mother-Daughter Patterns with Karen Anderson
In this episode, I had a conversation with the amazing Karen Anderson, author, coach and speaker who helps adult daughters who have “difficult” mothers. We talk about Karen’s story and all the knowledge she has around this very challenging topic.
Topics covered:
  • Unhealthy mother daughter patterns that get passed down from generation to generation
  • Overbearing moms
  • Boundaries
  • Compassion
  • Lynn Forrest’s work
  • The “Mother Wound”
  • The victim narrative
