Greta Gar Bitch: Open to Where Life Takes You

Join Kimber Leigh and Kristin for a discussion about many things including her best selling book Greta Gar Bitch.

Greta Gar~BITCH is the true story of a young girl growing up in a family with extreme dysfunction. Enduring daily physical and emotional abuse that was fueled by alcohol, sex, and drugs. The severity of abuse caused two of the four youngest children to commit suicide as their only way out six months apart from the other. In another six months, the mother committed suicide by ingesting a gallon of vodka a day, with a variety of prescription meds. When the mother’s body could no longer keep up with this cycle of drinking and drugging, her death left this family in their darkest hours.

At the tender age of seven, Kimber Leigh listened to the stories told to her by her grandfather, about the famed Hollywood actress from the 1930s, Greta Garbo. Kimber’s grandfather said, “You are going to be just like her when you grow up.” When Kimber shared his words with her mother, her mother’s reply was, “Sweetheart, you will never be anything but a BITCH… a Greta GarBITCH!”

Kimber’s life was left in turmoil after years of suffering physical, sexual, and emotional abuse at the hands of her mother and others.

This book reveals what turned Kimber’s life around, so she was able to lead a life of miracles, peace, love, and forgiveness. These experiences taught Kimber how to understand the real ‘game of life’ leading her to find true love, all the while witnessing endless miracles along her life’s long journey.

Great Gar~BITCH will explain how YOU can live a miraculous life. People will witness your growth and say, WOW!

Individuation: A Necessary Step Towards Growth

Join new podcaster, Anthony Metten, for a discussion about individuation. What is it? What does that mean? Why is is so vital to your mental health?

Thought leader Anthony Metten is ushering in a new era of life skills with an empowering message born from rigorous introspection and bold vulnerability. “Who we are isn’t who we are,” he explains. “It’s all about being in the present. The past is depression; the future is about anxiety.”

For Metten, self-perception is the gatekeeper of all the great things in life. “Success favors those willing to look deep inside. Those brave enough to remove the veils that once protected them but now hinder their growth,” he reveals.

Metten shares his message through speaking engagements and via his innovatively written book #upshift(Blooming Twig Press). His methodology blends tenets of psychology, career counseling, and real world experience.

At the core, Metten’s emboldening approach is about our relationship to the self, but its benefits fluidly extend to the workplace. Career success begins with the bonds we have with our coworkers, winning is a team-based activity fortified by deep interpersonal bonds.

For executives, Metten encourages them to be brave and strong enough to be vulnerable. He also encourages them to establish trust and understanding through transparent communication with clear boundaries – that’s where success starts. “Here’s the deal: You have to recognize other people,” Metten says. “Successful businesses are built on the people who work there. They help bring the accomplishments; it’s not about the boss, it’s about the people. That’s leadership.”

He recommends company rising stars to take chances but stay self aware as they make big decisions. “The question isn’t where you are on the continuum, it’s whether you’re on it, and what you’re willing to do to consistently improve self understanding. Along the way you will have setbacks and hurdles but don’t worry, we all have them. It’s what you learn and do with them that sets you apart,” Metten says. “

Onstage Metten exudes an assured, bold but refined demeanor. He’s an in-the-moment speaker cued into the audience’s energy, making dynamically meaningful twists and turns so each engagement is vibrantly unique. The constant in his work is always giving attendees a reason to pause and consider what could be possible, for both their careers and their personal lives.

Metten’s own life has been defined by consistently and continually redefining his self-conception. Growing up he internalized the distorted imaging surrounding him and descended into a life of frustration and low self-esteem. When he found himself a single parent, high school dropout, bankrupt and living on a friend’s couch, he knew it was time to hit the reset button. He transformed his own life through the lessons he teaches others. Metten went onto earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology and Career Development from Santa Clara University. Previous to his thought leader work, Metten was a Senior Vice President at one of the largest global financial institutions in the financial industry.

“You need to do the hard work,” Metten says. “And you’ll know you’re doing the hard work when you’re honest with yourself. Get into areas you’re unfamiliar with, stretch, and get a little uncomfortable; those are the areas where growth and opportunity lie.”

Our Relationship with Food, Ourselves and the World

Join Kristin and Carolyn as they discuss everything from social unrest, racism, eating disorders, and her incredible podcast that just joined Mental Health News Radio Network.

Born in Houston, Texas, Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross spent her childhood in San Antonio where as the oldest of five children, she comes from a long line of physicians and healers. Her mother’s father was a well-known physician in Bryan, Texas, who opened his own hospital and nursing school. His mother, Betty Love, was a Cherokee medicine woman.

Dr. Ross wanted to be a doctor from the age of nine and worked many summers and vacations in her grandfather’s office, going with him on house calls, helping him deliver babies and learning how to dispense medications in his office pharmacy.

Dr. Ross’s Medical Background
Dr. Ross completed her undergraduate degree in Modern Foreign Languages at Purdue University and then was a full-time mother of her two older sons before returning to school to complete her Pre-Med requirements. She then went to the University of Michigan Medical School. Dr. Ross’s practice experience after medical school helped fuel her interest in understanding what makes people heal as she saw that most of her patients’ medical problems were related to lifestyle habits and the stresses of modern living.

In searching for a better way to address these issues, Dr. Ross began to explore complementary and alternative therapies and the use of herbs and supplements for her patients. She then completed a residency in Preventive Medicine at Loma Linda University and set up practice in San Diego, California, where she eventually opened three women’s centers where she practiced primary care and office gynecology. Her women’s centers integrated the best of western medicine with complementary and alternative therapies such as yoga, acupuncture, chiropractic, and nutrition counseling. She developed and ran The Anchor Program that offered a holistic approach for individuals with food and body image issues. The Anchor Program is a non-diet approach with a philosophy that health and well-being are everyone’s right no matter their size. During that time, she also served as the medical director of The Rader Institute’s inpatient eating disorder program.

Dr. Ross’s Focus on Integrative Medicine
Dr. Ross’s own personal health crisis and the diagnosis of her mother with Alzheimer’s led her on a journey to healing in which her perspective about medicine changed and her desire to focus on integrative medicine led her to the University of Arizona’s Center for Integrative Medicine. Dr. Ross completed a two-year fellowship in Integrative Medicine, studying with Dr. Andrew Weil. Her path then led her to work as the head of the Eating Disorders Program and the Integrative Medicine Department at world-renowned inpatient hospital, Sierra Tucson where she pioneered the Integrative Medicine approach to eating disorder treatment. She currently works in private practice in Denver, Colorado, as an addiction medicine specialist and suboxone doctor who specializes in opioid addiction treatment. She also is a consultant for treatment centers across the country on eating disorders and integrative medicine.

Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross is a mother of three sons and has one granddaughter. She is also a nationally known author, speaker and expert in the field of Eating Disorders and Integrative Medicine. Her most recent book is “The Overcoming Binge Eating Disorder and Compulsive Overeating Workbook.” Other books include, “Healing Body, Mind and Spirit: an Integrative Medicine approach to the treatment of eating disorders” describing her own journey to healing and the miracles she found along the way. Dr. Ross has also developed a line of supplements as a result of her research, which are designed to support the recovery of patients with eating disorders and addictions.
