162: Robbin Rockett: Solo Parent Life

Robbin Rockett, Psy.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist and single parent of three young children. She hosts the podcast Solo Parent Life and each week takes on a variety of issues facing single parents, including dating, finances, stress management, parenting, and co-parenting, and brings in experts, therapists, and authors for frank and friendly conversions that offer guidance for solo parents to become more mindful in their own self-care. Robbin speaks with integrity and from the heart about the people, books, blogs, and resources that have helped her as a solo parent.

 

Being raised by a single mom myself, I was really interested in hearing Robbin’s story.  I love what she had to say about the power she found in her divorce – even though it was understandably isolating and scary, as transitions tend to b e.  She shed a lot of light on how to process change and adapt to a new life.  She also talked about the importance of acknowledging the losses in divorce, rather than trying to just push past them. 

 

Listen in to hear Robbin share:

* The power and importance of group therapy and solo therapy

* The unexpected gifts she experienced in her divorce

* How divorce ultimately lead her to a more confident and powerful place in life 

* The importance of acknowledging and grieving the death of the family that takes place in divorce
