Katy Hurst, M.Ed., LPC-MHSP, is the former Student Care Coordinator in The Office of The Dean of Students at Vanderbilt University and is now a Licensed Professional Counselor. Katy explains that the ability to feel empathy is something that makes us beautiful as humans. “Empathy” can also open us up to experiencing “collective trauma” which can lead to a “dysregulated nervous system”. Katy also explains that knowing this about ourselves can help us better understand how we feel. You need to “Name It to Tame It”. In this interview Katy helps Jason gain perspective on the way he has reacted to the 2020 tornado that went through his neighborhood. She teaches him helpful breathing techniques and provides helpful resources. Katy met Jason when he was presenting at a poetry festival at her high school in Virginia. Yes, that’s right, Katy’s high school! This is a fun interview as the two of them chat about her high school's “Poetry Festival” and Katy’s journey from singing along with Jason as a 14 year old audience member to becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor.
