Speak Truth. Break Barriers.

Join us as we explore the societal and economic structures that hold women back from using their voice, and speaking their truth. It is past time we come together to tear down the walls holding us back, and hold space for each other's stories.

Host Jasmine Partida speaks with women leaders about what holds women back, what walls do they consistently see women hit, and what are ways we can come together and breakthrough. Join Jasmine as she explores, inspires, and empowers women to find their voice and speak their truth.

Licensed mental health therapist Nia Ridgle speaks on how to break past cycles of abuse, generational trauma, and why your own mental health should be a central piece of your parenting.

Nia's life story is one like many others, where we find ourselves professionally successful but struggling internally. After many failed attempts of using coping mechanisms Nia found to be self-defeating, self-sacrificing, and mostly outdated she realized she did not have the proper channels, tools, support, or knowledge of where to go for help.

Nia was left with the feeling that she was stifling her own healing and growth. She committed to embarking on a wonderful, intense journey to self-love. Nia found the tools to live better with the help of a professional.

Now that she has the tools, skills, and mindset to help others her mission is to support and empower others while instilling foundational principles to help break unhealthy habits and repeating cycles when supporting her clients and educating the public about mental health stigmas. Nia finds "When you reveal you, you heal."

Quotes from the episode
"Children need to be seen in three ways - seen, heard, and affirmed."
"Mental health does not see color, it does not see gender, it does not see wealth."
"It's not enough to KNOW - the key is action. Now that you know you have these blocks, what are you going to do about it?"
"Either you speak against abuse and separate from it, or you don't speak against it and it becomes part of your being."
