Connections Podcast Interview



In a recent interview on Connections Podcast, Andrea enjoys a faith-filled and inspiring conversation with Colleen Houde & Mike Thom about her new book, The Cuckoo Syndrome: The Secret to Breaking Free from Unhealthy Relationships, Toxic Thinking, and Self-Sabotaging Behavior.


During the interview, Andrea shares the breakthrough she received while navigating a difficult relationship with a close family member, the difference between religion and relationship, the invisible injury of toxic religion and how it shows up in our churches and faith-based communities, as well as how essential emotions are to our faith because we cannot grow spiritually beyond our emotional immaturity.


Through the lens of scripture, science, and psychology, she discusses ways to break toxic thinking patterns and how to deal with unhealthy relationships with ourselves and with others in order to live a life of freedom, meaning, and purpose.

Andrea has spent her career studying the human experience and has developed a fascinating analogy that compares cuckoo birds, nature’s master manipulator and imposter, to situations and relationships that leave us feeling drained, confused, lost, and empty. Her new book, The Cuckoo Syndrome, helps us fend off the cuckoos, the unhealthy relationships, toxic thinking, and self-sabotaging behaviors in our life that never truly satisfy the deep longings of our souls and the desires of our hearts. 

Andrea’s clinically proven, innovative method helps us recover the lost pieces of ourselves, discover meaning in suffering, and transform our pain into purpose by teaching us to uncover the truth of who we are and who God is so we can be healed and live free.
