Join me, Christie Rocha, on my mission to debunk the misconceptions and stigmas around mental health and therapy. Let’s normalize working on our mental health and seeking help when needed. We’ve all heard of self-care, self-help, and self-love but do you often wonder how to actually make it all happen? I do! You’ll hear strategy-based conversations with professionals as well as inspiring and validating stories from women who are just like you and me. Think of this podcast as the weekly therapy sessions you didn’t know you needed...with a dash of sass, a lot of vulnerability, and me, relentlessly asking “but how?”

    Keila Dolle is an actress, filmmaker, comedian, and podcast host. Keila’s mission is to create projects that have a social impact. Keila is a fixture in the LA comedy scene - she hosted and produced The Scramble, a brunch variety show for 3.5 years.

Keila and I talk about her childhood, growing up with an autistic brother, the loss of her biological father, coping with anxiety and panic disorder, and how therapy and meditation have seen her through it all.
