episode 202: the beauty of becoming whole in your work with Molly Nourmand

Molly Nourmand Brand Yourself Podcast Blair Badenhop

Molly Nourmand is a psychotherapist, yogini, and mother. Her multilayered lens brings healing, integration, and transformation to the lives of birthing people through 1:1 work, support circles and retreats.

Her approach is grounded in Psychodynamic Theory and informed by over a decade of teaching yoga and meditation, as well as an ongoing exploration of Somatic Experiencing. She received a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute.

Prior to specializing in perinatal mental health, Molly’s early career as a psychotherapist was spent at drug and alcohol rehabs. At Promises Treatment Center she was the Director of the monthly Family Intensive Program.

Molly’s initiation into motherhood birthed a new career path for her. She completed the Advanced Perinatal Mental Health Psychotherapy training with Postpartum Support International and has translated her passion into a specialty in her practice. She created Life After Birth® in 2017 to hold birthing people through their metamorphosis into parenthood.

We chat about:

  • Why she was drawn to psychotherapy from a young age and what it looked like for her to take a detour into yoga teaching before she officially became a therapist
  • What inspired her to start Life After Birth after becoming a mom, and how she approached getting her first local mom circle started in LA
  • What it was like to have no one sign up for her events in the beginning, why she showed up and stayed committed anyway, and how she turned it into a thriving business
  • The old school way she approached marketing in those early stages, how she pivoted to an online offering during the pandemic, and how things have evolved since
  • Her biggest recommendations for leading a group and holding a safe, non-judgmental space that creates room for everyone to be self-expressed
  • And so much more!
