God as Your Parent (April 25, 2024 @CBC SATX)
“God as your Parent” Lay Care Ministry TrainingCommunity Bible Church, San Antonio, TXApril 25, 2024 It is always a privilege to share what is on my mind and heart. This is the follow-up talk to my last one, God and Your Parents: Why Your Childhood Matters.” This time, I analyze how God models perfect parenting while he guides Moses to face his core beliefs. I also describe Exposure therapy, a therapy model used for phobias and fears, that God used to parent Moses. I hope to personalize God’s approach and attention to us. #mentalhealth #spirituality #Christianity #God #life #support #love #hope #encouragement #healing #parenting #faith If you prefer video format: https://youtube.com/@restorepsychiatry4396?feature=sharedIf you need a listener’s guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1G9aHjcCcQ_4mamYCngnM9cVtS7yXSeSo/edit?usp=drive_link&ouid=110734793517549638876&rtpof=true&sd=trueFollow-up exercise: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LmpfPkmCXmh0E7iACGdqfa2W4iCCjeme/view?usp=drive_linkFind this podcast in your favorite Podcast Platform**Disclaimer: This site's content is not intended to diagnose or treat any disorders but rather for informational, educational, and empowerment purposes.

Suicide: Why we are all at risk and What we can do about it (ft. Gillian Rodriguez)

Suicide: Why we are all at risk and What we can do about it (ft. Gillian Rodriguez)
This episode was supposed to be launched in early 2023 but I thought it was fitting to release it early due to another loss of a public figure due to suicide. As a mental health provider, sometimes stories and cases confuse me and throw me off. Why? How? What? Psychiatrists, more than other medical field physicians, are supposed to be more familiar with and an expert at understanding suicide. But, the more training I get, the more I am aware of what I don't know... but I want the listeners to know what I at least know. In this episode, I have a guest who is very familiar with death and suicide, Gillian Rodriguez, a therapist who specializes in prevention, intervention, and postvention of suicide. She and I have a conversation as human beings trying to understand the intricacies, depth, and darkness of suicide. We will also talk about perspectives and sources of hope for people who are wondering if suicide is the solution to their life's pain... and those around them who love them. If you are wondering and considering suicide, please reach out to help. 9-8-8. You matter.**Disclaimer: This podcast's content is not intended to diagnose or treat any disorders but rather for informational, educational, and empowerment purposes.

Whistleblowing your culture: Cultural Trauma and why we can't blow it off (Ft. Jenny Lee)
Trauma can happen anywhere... but what if it happened in your home. What if this was "just the way it was" for generations? What if calling it trauma risk losing the world you knew: your family? Today Jenny and I talk about cultural and generational trauma: how to differentiate toxic to non-toxic cultural traits and how you can move forward sensibly and re-write the narrative. We are both Korean American but I believe the universal insights we arrive at can be applicable to anyone.

In this episode, I am working with Dr. Ted Williams. I met Dr. Williams during my training and he became my mentor in psychiatry in many ways, in private practice and incorporating faith with work. As I am “growing up” as a baby attending psychiatrist, he was amazing at being vulnerable and encouraging. My husband and I continue to benefit from his mentorship. Dr. Ted Williams is the founder and a Board Certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist of Genesis Behavioral Health in San Antonio, TX. He is an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the Long School of Medicine, UT Health San Antonio and also at the University of Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic Medicine.

He is an educator, proponent, and expert in TMS, a new technology used to promote the healing of brain circuits involved in depression and other mental illnesses. In this episode, I will be asking all the questions you wanted ask about TMS. Does it hurt, how much does it cost, what are the side effects and is it for me?
