Patreon - The Path to Authenticity


I Pick You

In episode 17 of The Path to Authenticity, Joan Marineau talks about the intersection between her professional and personal life; between being a therapist and being a mother. Her career took a sharp turn after an intervention led to treatment for her codependency. Her life took a sharp turn when she flew to China to unite with her daughter. With host Tom Gentry, Joan talks about the early history of addiction treatment in South Florida, how her reckoning with codependency forever changed her approach as a therapist, and what she has learned since becoming an adoptive parent.

The Path to Authenticity is a podcast for people looking for more from life. It focuses on emotional wellness and starts from the premise that our true power comes from our individuality. We talk to various types of writers and artists as well as therapists, coaches, teachers, entrepreneurs, and professionals of all kinds. Our guests possess one common trait. They’re people who know who they are.  We talk about what makes them who they are, how they became who they are, and how we might become truer expressions of who we are.
