Invisible Stories: Write to be Seen

Jul 8, 2020

On today’s episode I speak to Dr. Maysa Akbar, Author of Urban Trauma. Dr. Akbar is a clinical psychologist and board certified in child and adolescent psychology. Her work is centered around the impacts of trauma within urban communities. Her company, Integrated Wellness Group, is a behavioral health clinic in Connecticut specializing in culturally competent care and addressing racial trauma. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • Start by sharing with small groups, then build up your confidence and start sharing with more people. And write it down. Converse around your story.
  • You’re the only one that can hold you back! Not the time, not the people, not the naysayers, not the shame
  • No one’s going to be able to narrate and dictate your life better than you. Those people don’t live in your shoes, those folks don’t know what you’ve gone through or how you’ve overcome.

Enjoy the episode!
