Today we are joined by my old practicum instructor, and Chubby Therapy Alum, Adriana Gil-Wilkerson MS LMFT. I met up with her while we were at the Texas Association for Marriage and Family Therapy Conference and in this conversation, you get an inside look at how therapists think when we are in a session. We talk about stance, the importance of being curious towards clients, and all the great work she is doing at the Houston-Galveston Institute.

Goals can be a touchy subject. I feel like it’s a term thrown around a lot but not necessarily defined thoroughly. We cannot discuss goals if we don’t talk about motivation to change and of course, how to actually define them. This show discusses the SMART method and what to know when you go into that first session. Like, share, subscribe, and as always remember to #FeedYourMentalHealth.

When I have great conversation, I get a natural buzz that lasts and makes me feel phenomenal. And, that’s EXACTLY what I got when I left the office of Eboni Harris and Eliza Boquin of Melanin and Mental Health. We covered topics ranging from cultural competent counseling, sex, and how communities can be impacted from natural disasters.

These trailblazing clinicians have developed a national database for mental health professionals of color. Listen to how it came about and be sure to like, share, and subscribe. And as always, remember to #FeedYourMentalHealth.

Since the first day I opened my private practice in February 2017, I've been asked why I chose the onion as my logo. Today we discuss how the onion represents the different systems we live in and how each layer plays a role in our life.
