Trauma-informed therapist and social media influencer Dr. Mariel Buqué shared about her journey to becoming one of the most recognizable names in mental health. We covered topics both personal and professional, including Dr. Mariel’s commitment to making healing tools more accessible for communities of color, the impact of intergenerational trauma on wellbeing, and what it means to have a more holistic view of mental health. And of course, Dr. Mariel spilled the tea on her use of humor, how tea became such a prominent feature of her posts, as well as about her podcast, “Break the Cycle with Dr. Mariel" and her upcoming book. (Dr. Mariel was such an engaging guest that my foster cat, Hermione, and her kittens couldn’t help but pop in during our interview....).
Check out the YouTube video for bonus photos of Dr. Mariel, her family, her podcast (and the kitties).
