    Season 5 Trailer: The Comeback

    Trigger warning: Medical Trauma
    The re-launch of the Latinx Therapy podcast comes after very difficult past few years. In this trailer, I share about the dyfunctional family dynamics I was experiencing, my experience with my mother's illness, about the day she passed away and how it has impacted me. I will hold a Q&A via our Instagram stories, and via our YouTube channel since the podcast will be in video format going forward. I appreciate everyone's support.

Love ❤️

Just started listening to the show from beginning to end. Love it! I would love to hear an episode on MLM’s in the Latin community.

V.EKR ,

Ugh!

Whoever created and uses this imbecilic, virtue-signaling term needs to go back to school.

We DO NOT appreciate being called “Latinx”

I prefer the term “Latin American”. Ever heard of it?? 🙄

WrigleyFieldMarshal ,

Dumb name

No one with credibility uses terms like “Latinx.”
