Lucia Rios: Her Story with Postpartum Depression

Trigger Warning: Postpartum Depression

Lucia Rios is a mom of two and the founder of Twisted Cotton Candy and Churro Service –  gourmet catering services with a unique Latinx twist! She offers custom carts at events and cotton candy walls.

Entrepreneurship came into her life as a means to a need after being diagnosed with postpartum depression. In this episode, we discuss Lucia’s experience with postpartum depression, the thoughts and stigma, as well as what her recovery journey was like.

Did you know that Latinas are 37 percent more likely than other groups to suffer from postpartum depression? It is estimated that Latinas living in the U.S. have a higher risk of developing postpartum depression compared to others, with even higher risk among immigrant Latinas.

Season 3: Children’s Mental Health

Season 3 will be dedicated to Children's Mental Health topics. Please note that I recorded many of these interviews in 2018 but just was not been able to edit and release them due to many schedule changes I had in my life in 2019.

The reason why I had thought of having a whole season on children mental health is truly because there?s a child in all of us, so even if you are not a parent or caregiver, this is for anyone who grew up as a child in the Latinx culture.?

In this trailer, I give a few updates with Latinx Therapy including

  • We opened a wellness center in Burbank, CA and are renting office spaces & have a group/training room for events (fits 30 people). We are also renting our podcast studio for $12/hr. calendly.com/latinxtherapy
  • Latinx Therapy is launching a speaker directory so organizations can find a Latinx mental health professional for workshops, panels, keynotes & more. Check us out on our site!?
  • Our Therapist-Directory is growing! Find your Latinx Therapist on http://www.latinxtherapy.com/therapists
  • If you need to use your insurance, check out our Resources tab & select "Non-Profits" then filter by state and "mental health."
  • Sponsorships/ad spots on the podcast for Latinx small business owners, fill out if interested in 15-second pre-roll ads: https://forms.gle/rQgN4a5hHoGZsiQQ6

I will be posting my events and upcoming speaking engagements on my homepage of our website, and on my Facebook, Instagram & Twitter. Follow us: @latinxtherapy?

Thank you for all your support! Next episode is set to release on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week!?

La Ansiedad Cuando Limpiamos

Hoy hablamos de un importante valor cultural, la limpieza. Es posible que no se ha realizado, pero la forma en que se nos ense?a a limpiar y la raz?n por la que hacemos la limpieza tiene implicaciones para la salud mental que pasan inadvertidamente porque se realizan de forma autom?tica y / o diaria. Para muchas personas en nuestra comunidad, la limpieza es uno de los elementos que nos da estatus, o quiz?s una de las cosas sobre las que realmente tenemos control. Discutimos la verg?enza que ha tenido la limpieza, las inseguridades de pedir ayuda para la limpieza, o incluso contratar ayuda para la limpieza, de d?nde proviene el resentimiento cuando hay una falta de ayuda, limpieza cuando se trata de ni?os y c?mo reconciliar los estilos de limpieza con otros con quien vivimos con.

Nuestra invitada: Lorena Salazar es una latina de primera generaci?n criada en Inglewood California. Se especializa en hijos, adultos y parejas casadas que est?n cuidando a un adulto mayor y / o alguien con una enfermedad degenerativa como el Alzheimers, y pr?ctica en Torrence, California. Ella creci? en un hogar mexicano donde la salud mental nunca se hablo de o incluso se reconoci?, sino que se vio como un "defecto personal" o caracter?stica personal. La madre de Lorena era una limpiadora de casa y se dio cuenta de que en realidad era un mecanismo de afrontamiento para los adultos en su hogar. Hasta hace poco no s? habido discusiones abiertamente de la salud mental en su familia.

The Shame & Anxiety Behind Cleaning

Today we discuss an important cultural value, cleaning. It may not be realized but the manner in which we are taught to clean and why we clean has mental health implications that go unnoticed because it?s done on an automatic and/or daily basis. For a lot of people in our community, cleaning is one of the elements that gives us status, or perhaps one of the things that we truly have control over. We discuss the shame that cleaning has had, the insecurities of asking for cleaning help, or even hiring cleaning help, where resentment comes from when there is a lack of help, cleaning when it comes to children & how to reconcile cleaning styles with others you live with.

Our Guest: Lorena Salazar is a first-generation Latina raised in Inglewood California. She specializes in adult children and spouses who are caring for an elder adult and/or someone with a degenerative disease such as Alzheimer?s, and has a practice in Torrence, CA. She grew up in a Mexican household where mental health was never addressed or even acknowledged, instead it was seen as a ?personal flaw? or personal characteristic. Lorena?s mom was a housecleaner, and realized that it was actually coping mechanism for the adults in her home. It wasn?t until recently that mental health has been discussed openly in her family.

My Teen Pregnancy Story- Part 2

Welcome back to My Teen Pregnancy Story Part 2!

Did you all know that Less than 2% of teen moms earn a college degree by age 30?

Roughly 229,715 teens between 15 and 19 became pregnant in 2015. Latinas have the highest teen-pregnancy rate of any group. The birth rate (per 1,000 girls) for white teens in California is nine, compared to a rate of 29 for Latina teens.

As I mentioned though, the rates for teen pregnancies in our community is drastically decreasing and I think a large part of this is due to the openness and education that we are sharing as generations go by.

In this episode, I go into what it was like to confront my ex's family, being in college with a son, what my schedule looked like, my dreams and wishes as a 20-year old, how I was stigmatized as a teen mom, and I give advice to parents who have teen mom daughters. There is often control because of their age, but I talk about the disservice and identity formation that is occurring. Please rate and review the podcast on iTunes/Apple Podcasts!?

My Teen Pregnancy Story- Part 1

Teen pregnancy is defined by someone who has a child between the ages of 13-19.?About 750,000 teens get pregnant each year, mostly between the ages 17 to 19 (Kost, et al., 2010).?

While Latinxs currently have the highest teen birth rates, they have also had a dramatic recent decline in rates. Since 2007, the teen birth rate has declined by 58% for Latinx, compared with declines of 53% for African Americans and 47% for Caucasians.

In this solo episode, I share my personal experience with getting pregnant at age 19 and becoming a single mother during my undergraduate schooling in Santa Barbara, CA. I discuss general and personal mental health effects, cultural beliefs and common mentalities that Latinx teens and their parents experience.?

I also explore the barriers to sex education, such as family beliefs, shame, and Catholicism. I provide advice to young girls, parents and therapists.

Next time I will continue with my story and talk about the collectivistic views with family postpartum? adjustment and the high status that is achieved with childbearing in the Latinx culture.?

Una Experiencia AfroLatinx

En este segmento, hablamos de lo que se significa ser AfroLatinx, ejemplos de discriminaci?n y micro-agresiones, y los varios efectos de la salud mental con este tema. ??Ser AfroLatinx significa ser negro/a o de afrodescendientes, y de un pa?s de Latino Am?rica. Para otros, se significa ser uno de los pa?ses AfroLatinx como Rep?blica Dominicana, Nicaragua, Honduras, Cuba, Hait?, Puerto Rico, o Guatemala.

Conocemos a Jersey Garcia: Ella es una consejera familiar y de parejas, Coach de Relaciones, y?mediadora familiar, que vive en el sur de la Florida, y disfruta ayudando a mujeres y parejas afrodescendientes y latinxs, a navegar la experiencia humana de relacionarse?desde un espacio de honestidad, felicidad y conexi?n.

An AfroLatinx Experience

My guest today for episode 7 is Jersey Garcia. In this episode, she talks to us about her realities of identifying as AfroLatinx, and looking more of African descent than Latinx, a struggle often society is too afraid to bring up, but is much too common. There is a saying ?no soy de aqui, ni soy de alla? that refers to: I?m neither from here, nor there.?

She opens up about the discrimination she has faced due to her skin color, and the mental health effects of racism and colorism. We also go into the mentality that the Latinx race must be ?improved? by dating someone of a lighter skin complexion.

She provides us with the unique perspective of the insecurities of being AfroLatinx as a mental health professional. Jersey ends the segment by providing a beautiful message to anyone that is feeling split between two identities.

Get to know her: Jersey Garcia is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Relationship Coach, and Family Mediator living in south Florida, who enjoys helping Black and Latinx women and couples, travel the human experience of relating from a space of honesty, happiness, and connectedness. Her preferred pronouns are she/her and the 5 things that usually bring a big smile to her face are: bed cuddles with her children; podcasts; slang words in Spanish; reggaet?n music; and some soft mang? with fried cheese on top.

Children of Business Owners

Today, I discuss how it is to grow up in businesses from a very young age with two individuals from different backgrounds, and who are also not mental health professionals. I speak with Pamela Barba from Georgia, an Ecuadorian native with a florist family business, and Zaira Gomez from Pennsylvania, whose parents are from Mexico own a pizza?restaurant. Collaboratively, we share our personal experiences with what it is like to grow up in the business realm, and share our feelings about the struggles and worries of being a small business owner.?

We discuss the guilt we feel in the present when we practice self-care, the hope of our parents taking over a business we did not want, and also explore how to handle fears for our parents and what it is like to have problems within family members. Most importantly, we discuss how the business world shaped us to be the adults we are now. ?

El Machismo y Saliendo del Cl?set

?Bienvenido al episodio n?mero 4! Este tema se ha solicitado desde que comenz? el podcast, as? que me alegro de que se haya ofrecido Renato P?rez a tener esta conversaci?n. Habr? muchos m?s temas relacionados con la comunidad LGBTQIA+ en otros episodios y futuras temporadas.?

El machismo y el identificarse como LGBTQ es un tema importante porque en nuestra cultura, el machismo forma parte de la ra?z de la homofobia.

El machismo es t?xico y un tipo de masculinidad tradicional que generalmente est? influenciado por 4 factores: 1- los hombres no deben ser femeninos; 2- los hombres deben ser respetados y admirados; 3- los hombres nunca deber?an mostrar miedo; y 4- los hombres deber?an buscar el riesgo y la aventura.

Nuestro invitado es Renato P?rez, trabajador social cl?nico con licencia en Los ?ngeles, California. En este episodio, da m?s detalles sobre el machismo y la historia de c?mo sali? del closet a su padre. Como terapeuta afirmativo de LGBTQ +, apoya a los clientes de cualquier identidad o expresi?n de g?nero. Actualmente trabaja para el Departamento de Salud Mental y tiene un consultorio en Sherman Oaks, California.

When You’re the English Translator for Your Family

Did you carry the role of translating for your parents? The academic term for a child translating for a parent is ?language brokering? so you will hear us refer to that in this segment. We also mentioned that children take on a ?parentified? role, meaning where a child takes the role and responsibilities of an adult.

In this segment, I talked with Lisette Sanchez, about the psychological and emotional effects of parents and children when this cultural value of translating out of necessity is used, such as the tendency of wanting to please parents but also a parent?s frustration and shame. We explored how to support young translators and also parents, along with discussing inappropriate settings where children should not be translating. Lisette shares a story of her time living in Oregon and moments when she experienced fear in speaking Spanish. ?

Un di?logo honesto sobre el SEXO

El sexo es para el matrimonio, entre un hombre y una mujer, o detr?s de puertas. Pens?moslo de nuevo!

Bienvenidxs a la sesi?n 14! Estoy muy emocionada por el capitulo de hoy porque es un tema que contiene mucho estigma de verg?enza y hoy empezaremos a quebrar ese estigma.

La Dra. Janet Brito, localizada en Hawaii, nos habla sobre las nociones psicol?gicas que nos han inculcado desde hace generaciones. Hablamos sobre los tab?es de sexo, la promiscuidad, las consecuencias por evitar el tema del sexo, que es la terapia de sexo y las razones m?s comunes por las que la gente busca esta terapia. La Dra. Brito tambi?n contesta dos preguntas muy comunes, como ?Como platico con mi hijo/a sobre el sexo? A qu? edad?? y ?C?mo lidiar con la infidelidad sexual??

Al crecer, el dicho que la Dr. Brito escuchaba sobre la salud mental ?era no le heches mucha crema a tus tacos?. Ella es la due?a del Centro para la Salud Reproductiva y Sexual. Su sitio es muy informativo as? es que aseg?rense de verlo!

Sneak Peek into a Forbidden Topic: Sex

Sex is: for marriage, between a man and a woman, or behind closed doors. Think again! ?

Welcome to sesion #14! I am really excited about today's episode because this topic is one that has heavy shame woven into it, and today, we start to break this stigma down.

Dr. Janet Brito, located in Hawaii, talks to us about the psychological notions that have been instills in us from generations ago. We talk about sex taboos, promiscuity, consequences for avoiding the topic of sex, what is sex therapy and common reasons why people go into sex therapy. Dr. Brito also answers two very common questions, such as: "How do I talk to my child about sex? What is the appropriate age?" and ?how do I cope with sexual infidelity??

Growing up, the saying Dr. Brito heard in regards to mental health was: ?no le heches mucha crema a tus tacos.? She is the owner of Center for Sexual and Reproductive Health. Her website is very informative so be sure to check it out!
