Therapist Vienna Pharaon on Improving Your Relationships

We had the privilege of hosting Vienna Pharaon, a renowned Marriage + Family Therapist + author of "The Origins of You". In an engaging Coaching + Community class, co-hosted with Moun D’Simone, Vienna shared valuable insights into how to heal our unwanted patterns and find more fulfillment in relationships. Here are three major takeaways from the night that resonated deeply with our packed room in The Study.

Understanding the Origin Wound

Vienna delved into the complexities of the Origin Wound, explaining that it's “not a one-size-fits-all concept.” She outlined different types of Origin Wounds that originate in our childhoods, including worthiness, belonging, prioritization, trust, and safety. Rooted in early family of origin experiences, each type of origin wound impacts our emotional and mental health differently. This part was particularly eye-opening as it helped many in the room identify and acknowledge their own experiences with such wounds and how they are manifesting in their present life.

The Impact of Childhood Experiences on Adult Relationships

A key theme of Vienna's book and her talk was the influence of childhood experiences on our adult relationships. She emphasized recognizing these patterns and how they shape our interactions with partners, friends, and family. Understanding these dynamics is crucial for fostering healthier + more fulfilling relationships and creating a roadmap for personal healing 

The Journey Towards Self-Healing

Perhaps the most empowering part of Vienna's session was her focus on self-healing. She offered strategies for individuals to embark on their healing journeys, emphasizing the role of self-awareness, therapy, + continuous personal growth. This message resonated with many, highlighting that while the journey may be challenging, it is also incredibly rewarding.

Vienna's Coaching + Community class at Sage + Sound was not just informative but transformative. Her insights from "The Origins of You" provided those in the room with tools + knowledge to better understand ourselves and nurture our relationships.
