Season 1, Episode 4: Frontline workers
In this episode, we hear from Annette Fetchko, who leads Bethlehem Haven, a nonprofit serving women who are experiencing homelessness.
When the pandemic shutdowns hit, she and other employees remained on site, because they had to. “(Love) is not a sign of weakness or insecurity. It’s really a sign of empowerment.”
Host Debra Whittam, licensed therapist, takes us through journeys of grief and overcoming in this podcast.
During more than 15 years treating clients, her diverse experience includes addiction rehabilitation therapy in both inpatient and and outpatient settings, trauma, abuse, grief, anxiety, OCD, and depression. Debra believes in the importance of authenticity in connecting with clients, their loved ones, and unveiling impacts of the family dynamic on psychosomatic conditions and the healing process.
In her book, “Am I Going To Be Okay? Weathering the Storms of Mental Illness, Addiction and Grief” (2016) and her most recent publication, “Everything That’s Been Waiting” she speaks from a position of personal experience with abuse, anxiety and addiction.
