Episode 58: Black Youth and Mental Health -An Interview with Dr.Brandon Gamble
It’s well known that there is a stigma attached to accessing mental health in the Black community. We can even say that this is true for the BIPOC community. One way to combat this is through increasing awareness. In Episode 58, we get to talk to Dr.Brandon Gamble, the Dean at Oakwood University. Dr.Gamble, an educational psychologist, has worked to develop the leadership capacity of Black youth, specifically males, for decades. We talk about the value of developing safe spaces for youth to foster decision making. The research has told us time and time again that African American teenagers tend to underutilize mental health services. Dr.Gamble de-mystifies mental health and explains how we can go from perceiving youth as “at-risk” to leaders in progress. Get ready - This is definitely worth a listen. You can find Dr.Brandon Gamble at http://www.drbrandongamble.com/bio.html and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/brandon.gamble.58 Read more about this interview on LivByViv.com You can always find me on Instagram @livbyviv https://www.instagram.com/livbyviv/  Sign up for my Favorite Finds Newsletter, http://bit.ly/FavoriteFindsNewsletter to get links to may favorite finds on a budget.  Check out my Patreon https://www.patreon.com/dontmixin?fan_landing=true

Episode 57: An Ally for LGBTQ+ Youth - Interview with Cynthia L. Ficken, MFT, LPCC
Being an ally for LGBTQ+ Youth is something we need to talk about every month, not just in June. Although I've been a school psychologist for two decades,  I'm not an expert in serving the LGBTQ+ Youth community.  So, I figured we should hear from someone who has done extensive work with our youth.  I interviewed Cynthia "Cindy" L. Ficken, MFT, LPCC in Episode 57 of the Don't Mix In Podcast. We got into how to be an Ally to our LGBTQ+ Youth. Cindy specializes in children, teens and their families through her work with schools and in private practice. She also has experience working at a psychiatric hospital.  I worked with her years ago at school district in the Orange County area. Cindy provided me with so much insight on how to work not just with youth but also with families. I still call her from time to time regarding cases. This is a good one! You can reach Cynthia L. Ficken, MFT, LPCC Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist at Fickencindy@gmail.com  How else you can help -LAYN now Youth Emerging Stronger.  I mentioned in this podcast that, about 20 years ago, I worked at a shelter in Los Angeles, Los Youth Network now called Youth Emerging Stronger. This shelter serves foster and homeless youth.  This was one of my first experiences serving LGBTQ+ Youth.  This organization continues to do important work! You can find out more about them here and donate. The Trevor Project. The Trevor Project also offers wide range of services and supports for our LGBTQ+ Youth.

Episode 55: You Can Wear a Swimsuit This Summer
Alright let’s talk about swimsuits. I feel like buying a swimsuit that fits is like a second cousin to the search for jeans. When the fit is on point you feel like a million bucks!

Episode 54: “What Are You?” Being an Afro-Latina in Los Angeles
"What are you?" is a question that my sister and I have been asked multiple times. This usually occurs when the person hears our surname or when we speak Spanish.  We are Black and Latina at the same time with immigrant parents from the Dominican Republic. This isn't special. However, there was less representation growing up in the greater Los Angeles area in 1980s and 90s. The West Coast had very little Dominicans, at least in our area there were very few. So, our family was a bit of an anomaly in our neighborhood.  I thought it would be interesting to interview my sister to discuss our experiences as Afro-Latinas on the West Coast, in Los Angeles. These are our experiences.
