The Dr. Lynne Santiago Show

Oct 21 2020 50 mins

Hi. I am Dr Lynne Santiago. Ever since I was a young child, I have been on an unquenchable quest for knowledge about Psychology, personality, concepts of “Self”, personal growth, and what it means to live life authentically. I want to know what others think about the question “Are we always Becoming”? My guests include psychologists, mental health counselors, life coaches, spiritual counselors, consultants’, authors and others, who, like me, have been on a Quest for knowledge, and now dedicate their lives to helping others in the process of Becoming. You will also be inspired by the personal Becoming stories told by guests who share the risks and the challenges, the successes and the letdowns, the joys and the heartaches they each experienced while on their own Becoming journey.

She has over 20 years in the counseling field, helping chronic mentally ill veterans, as well as teens and families. She educates us on how severe mental illness impacts a person’s Becoming journey. She tells us of the heartbreaking effects mental illness has on the person’s sense of identity, and the loss of Self they experience. But then Karidad takes us through her own personal Becoming story when she shares her experiences receiving the shocking news that she was losing her vision from a rare disorder—and it was happening while writing her Doctorate dissertation! Her mom, sister, and professor, would not let her quit, reminding her that she had come too far, and worked way too hard, to give up her dream of earning a Doctorate degree. Karidad is so courageous—she led us into her most difficult times when she felt depressed and hopeless. She said there were times when she would fall off, what she called, her “Becoming train”, but added - “I always bought more tickets, so I could jump back on”.

I also found out after our interview that she is good friends with my niece/God-daughter. It truly is a small world.UPDATE: Wow.

Gary says he helps clients “gain access to their power”, “illuminate the path toward their goals”, and supports them as they manifest their goals. Gary tells us that his own transformational shift occurred when he stopped being a salesperson and started partnering with his clients. He attributes his success to having mentors that helped him see “the bigger picture”. Gary was my business coach a few years back. He helped me create a vision for how I wanted to grow my therapy practice, but also started me on the path of writing a book “Conscious Partings – Ending Your Relationship from a Place of Love”, which I am still in the process of writing. Gary and I talked about me doing a podcast one day, so he has played a pivotal role in my own personal ‘becoming’ story.

EP 003 : Dr. Lisa Martin’s Quest: The effects of Racial Trauma and Intersectionality the process of Becoming
Jun 14 2020 48 mins  
Psychologist and Psychotherapist, Dr. Lisa Martin, talks about “marginalized identity”, “intersectional identities”, and the, often traumatic experiences of being “pushed to the edges” of society. Dr. Martin explains that minority groups are often defined by others, leading to shame, oppression, and disempowerment. She explains how the power of words, that label and try to define groups of people, are harmful to the person’s sense of self identity. Using a strength-based approach in therapy, Dr Martin helps her clients find new words and language to describe their own identities. Words that are validating and empowering, and that express the true resiliency of the individual and the marginalized groups that he or she identifies with. This episode was recorded prior to the murder of George Floyd, whose death shed more light on the effects of Critical Racial Trauma and racism that is real in in the US and globally.https://www.83degreesmedia.com/features/clinical-psychologist-offers-advice-to-parents-060420.aspxDr. Martin offers free consultations.Learn more about Dr. Lisa Martin on her website www.healwithDrLisa.com and email her at [email protected] email your questions and relevant experiences to [email protected] Dr. Lynne on her new podcast Instagram @ iam.always.becoming Give Dr. Lynne a “LIKE” and SHARE the new “The Dr. Lynne Santiago Podcast” Facebook page the-dr-lynne-santiago-podcast
