The Right Words
Dr. Anita is wrapping the year by gifting us some of In the Light’s best moments and there’s no better place to start than the heart. Having the right words to truly describe how we feel helps to protect us from the effects of stress. This episode is a vocabulary list of the best emotion words from our 2021 conversations to help you answer the all-important question - How do you feel?
Words of Affirmation
After months and months of unexpected change, many of us are seeking fresh balance despite the ground still shifting beneath our feet. In this episode, Dr. Anita is speaking directly from her heart with one purpose: to affirm you. Whether anxiety’s grip seems relentless, or grief is showing up in new ways, or you are just feeling all the feels this holiday season, your heart needs to know that you are going to be okay. Spoiler alert–you are.
Out of Bounds
Dr. Anita is exhausted in the very best way possible! Listen in as she reflects on THEE moment that was the 2021 Woman Evolve conference. Then, stick around for some much-needed direction on building healthy relationships. Dr. Anita is joined by fellow therapist Danae Wheatley for this compelling conversation overflowing with education, insight, and auntie-flavored truth. In family, in friendships, and in love, we are recovering from CODEPENDENCY by naming our pain, healing our pain, and setting boundaries.
Ladies listen up! Our friendships are just as important as our romantic relationships (if not more)and sometimes, they are just as challenging (if not more) but when you find those special sister-friend bonds, it’s EVERYTHING. In this episode of In the Light, Dr. Anita is chatting with minister and life coach, Irene Rollins, who gets vulnerable about her own difficult friendship journey. She offers guidance on the roles that different friends play and sheds light on how to find sister-friends you need.
Please Review the Attachment
Relationships are challenging but romantic relationships can be EXTRA challenging! When it comes to dating and marriage questions, love is the answer! Literally. This week, Dr. Anita welcomes relationship expert Love McPherson back to In the Light. Love insists that “attachment styles” are key to deciphering the mixed messages that undermine healthy connections. She is here to teach us about each style and to help you identify yours. Knowing your attachment style will empower you to transform the most important relationships in your life. That’s something to celebrate!
Stay in the House
Speaker, teacher, pastor’s wife, and multiple-attempt suicide survivor Heather Palacios dedicates her life to helping those struggling against suicide. In this conversation with Dr. Anita, Heather shares what dark days have taught her about living in the light. Whether you have ever contemplated suicide or not, Heather’s wisdom will inspire you to celebrate each and every day you get to spend in the amazing body that was created to house one very unique person — YOU!
I Mean..... WOW!
Before I could afford a therapist, I considered Dr. Anita my “podcast therapist” lol! I’ve learned so much about how to love & appreciate myself and see my identity through Christ. Also, I have never thought about the intersection of the church, mental health, and my blackness until this podcast. Honestly, this podcast has contributed to turning point in my life as I begin my 20s! THANK YOU DR. ANITA!
