    S3 E20 Janice & Neha talk about how Licensed Psychologist Erica Adkins dealt with infidelity, domestic violence, sexual assault and divorce

    Tune in to hear us unpack this week's episode with Dr. Erica Adkins.

    Our final guest of Season 3 of Culturally Speaking is Dr. Erica Adkins, a Licensed Psychologist and owner of a group practice in Colorado. She has a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Oregon. She lives in Colorado with her partner, 3 children, 2 Great Danes and a Boxer Dog.
    Healing from trauma is much like climbing a mountain. It’s intimidating, it’s hard, it hurts, but the satisfaction of reaching the summit is worth every second. As a licensed psychologist, Dr. Erica Adkins spent years studying how to help people heal from trauma, depression, anxiety, and grief. However, her most poignant education came from surviving a string of traumatic events including working in a prison, infidelity, domestic violence, sexual assault, divorce, and military deployment.  
    Erica’s memoir, Rock Bottom is Where Bad Bitches Are Built chronicles her journey from rock bottom to resilience that will inspire readers to find their own path back from trauma. It is a gripping and heart-wrenching account of the most traumatic decade of Erica’s life. You are NOT what has happened to you, and you are NOT alone on this journey. Put one foot in front of the other and take the first step toward healing. 
    Erica’s book, Rock Bottom Is Where Bad Bitches Are Built, is available on Amazon in ebook and paperback https://www.amazon.com/dp/1736516108.

    S3 E18 Janice & Neha talk about how Rick Werry broke his neck and went on to live a fulfilling life

    S3 E18 Janice & Neha talk about how Rick Werry broke his neck and went on to live a fulfilling life

    Tune in to hear us unpack this week's episode with Rick Werry.

    Rick Werry was born in a small town in Utah, US and grew up on a dairy farm, the youngest of four children. He loved sports and being outdoors as a teenager. In 2007 Rick married his college sweetheart Tara. One year later while building their house, Rick was in a construction accident and broke his neck. His life changed that day - he paralyzed from the chest down. Rick was scared, sad and unsure what the future would hold when a nurse came into his hospital room. The nurse was holding a red pen and a calendar. She told Rick that any time you accomplish something you couldn't do yesterday we will write it down and call it a "Red Letter Day.”
    Rick has taken that nurse's advice not only in recovering from a spinal cord injury, but also in life. In Rick’s ‘wheelchair life’ he has accomplished many amazing things; he is a husband, a father, an avid hand-cyclist, a wheelchair rugby player, and a hunter. Rick is compiling his life lessons and “Red Letter Days” into a memoir and is passionate about using his journey to inspire others.
