About the Guest:
As a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counseling, with a Masters in Clinical Psychology, hopefully, something in my 10+ years in the mental health field will be able to help you through individual counseling and holistic and integrative intervention approaches.
I live in sunny Las Vegas, NV. Yes, the gambling, nightlife, club-scene, party-going, “bottle service”, all-you-can anything of the country. Getting into mental health and consulting couldn’t be a better idea. People come to Las Vegas to get lost in their fantasy world. I mean, our official city slogan is “what happens here stays here”. I have lived in Las Vegas all of my life and MY whole fantasy was life outside of this city; yet, I ended up leaving for only a short period of time only to come back to Las Vegas, get married, settle down. With a mortgage and multiple businesses, I am stuck. Because of this, I made the most and the best of being in Las Vegas. I immersed myself in the Las Vegas culture, not to live a life of “sin”, but to find out what, in my eyes, this city was lacking so that I can love this smallest big city and call it my home… a place where I would be proud to raise my kids.
My husband and I are both first generation Asian-Americans. Both in the healthcare field. (He “fixes” eyes. His website here if you need an eye doctor in Las Vegas www.drallenhuioptometry.com). We have a daughter, Kate, and she pretty much IS our life now. Plus our other two 4-legged kids, that is. Having her was definitely an adventure and watching her grow and develop every day is definitely one of the most exciting things of my life. These aforementioned things in my life are just a few of what influenced me to do what I did and do what I do today. There is a lot to Balance when there are so many things influencing every aspect of life. Every day, I deal with the culture clash of being raised in an Asian-American home and now raising a daughter in one. Not to mention, striving to be a sufficient mother and wife, a committed friend, and good daughter while also fulfilling the duties of a clinician and business woman. Some people find this challenging, others find it unnecessarily chaotic. To me, I find it exciting.
I invite you to follow my journey as I learn from the experiences and the people I meet everyday how to keep the chaos that is my life ELEGANTLY BALANCED.
About the Host:
Matthew Cox spent his elementary and middle school years thinking there was something wrong with his brain. For him, schoolwork was a daunting, frustrating, and often embarrassing challenge. He was the kid who never seemed to catch up with his classmates, no matter how hard he tried. “Growing up with a disability was like having an elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about,” Matthew explained. Being diagnosed with a learning disability during high school helped he finally put a name to the problem, and to begin his journey to personal and academic success. “I’ve learned to befriend my elephant, I’ve named him George,” Matthew said. “George is not going away but I can choose how I feel about him.”
Through his own experience, Matthew knows what it means to be a teenager in trouble as well as what it takes to run a business. Matthew brings inspiration, humor, and practical strategies during his speaking engagements, inspiring change to those he works with.
Thanks to family members and caring adults in his life, Matthew was able to overcome the hardship of his disability and has dedicated his life to helping others find their purpose and help families succeed.
