“I’m a clinical psychologist specializing in sexuality, a radio talk show host, and an author of a book. I spend time with my kids, I volunteer, I do yoga, I paint, I sculpt… sometimes I sit back and think: ‘how do I do all that?’ I do it all with passion. Passion drives us; it’s purposeful. Otherwise, you’re blasé about life. It’s like coasting on neutral versus being in the driver’s seat—I’ve always driven my life in the driver’s seat. Even if something was anxiety provoking, I did it anyway.
I never, ever, in my wildest dreams would’ve thought I’d be in radio. But when I was 24 years old, I was offered the opportunity to be a co-host of a radio show. It happened serendipitously, but I jumped through the door. I could’ve said, ‘no, that’s not for me’ or ‘that’s too scary.’ No. I said, ‘what’s the worst that could happen? Let me try it. At least I’ll know I tried.’ That’s how I’ve lived my life.”
