219: You Do You - Shanta Jackson, The Homegirl Therapist

On Air with Ella - podcast episode 219

In this episode, I'm talking to Shanta Jackson, The Homegirl Therapist about:

  • The Imposter Complex - persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud"

  • We're strong, accomplished women....why do we still feel this sometimes?

  • How social media can amplify these feelings

  • How this has manifested in Shanta's life and what she did about it

  • Flipping the script - taking our perceived "weaknesses" and making them our superpower

  • Showing up, living out loud and being our authentic selves... for real


While engaging in behaviors seeking love and worth I didn't know at the time that I was hustling for my worth, but I knew I wanted to be seen so bad, I wanted to be valued so bad, I wanted to feel enough so badly. - Shanta J.
