Episode 061 “Living Centered and Exploring Attachment Science”
Featuring Krispin Mayfield, LPC
Today Mickenzie and Hannah are diving into attachment science with licensed therapist and author Krispin Mayfield. The ways we learned to receive and keep connections in our earliest relationships create a framework from which we draw in every subsequent relationship. Krispin explains how our attachment style impacts how we show up in relationships and also explores what attachment science can teach us about how we understand and relate to a higher power.

Mentioned in this episode
As humans, we’re all wired for connection, but unfortunately, many of us did not get our most basic emotional needs met in our early development. When we don’t get our emotional needs met, we start to look to other relationships to fulfill those needs. This affects our self-worth and self-esteem, resulting in harmful and hurtful relationship patterns in adulthood.
We repeat what we don’t repair, so we’ll continue to live out the same scenarios and situations we experienced growing up until we find the space and guidance we need to explore what’s behind these unhealthy patterns.
This revolutionary six-day experience will help you address the core wounds that drive self-sabotaging behaviors and the need for approval that continues to disrupt your relationships. If you have a historical pattern of dysfunctional relationships or find yourself frequently disappointed by unmet expectations, this group program provides a safe, nurturing environment essential for rebuilding your self-worth.
