Dr. Robin Smith, a New York Times best-selling author, licensed psychologist, is gearing up to launch her brand new radio, “The Dr. Robin Show,” on SiriusXM’s Urban View channel.
Many of you will recognize her as the Therapist-in-Residence for “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
In 2010, Dr. Robin was involved in a serious car accident. Due to the accident, she was forced to rebuild her life. The physical and emotional after-effects of the accident meant that she was unable to work.
The journey to recovery was long and fatiguing. Her memories remain vivid.
In 2013, Dr. Robin released her book “Hungry: The Truth About Being Full, a “courageous journey to discovering herself.” Dr. Robin, a beacon of light and hope to millions of listeners, struggled at times to keep going.
Tragedy struck a second time in 2016 when Dr. Robin was involved in a second car accident.
“In the ICU, they had everything dark in the room. It felt like my head was going to explode from my ears. My head was throbbing, and I had terrible headaches. I was dizzy, nauseous and vomiting,” Dr. Robin said in an interview with RealWomenOnline in 2019. “I was completely unprepared, not only for the accident, but also for the intensity of the symptoms. I ended up in speech therapy, ocular occupational therapy, and vestibular and cervical physical therapy for about 2 ½ years.”
Dr. Robin is back and better than ever.
“I am currently relaunching my brand and taking the stage once again. […] I am grateful to be healthy and strong again, and excited about this next chapter in my career. I have a new website, podcast and other media related opportunities in development. My mission is built on the platform of “Transforming Trauma into Triumph,” through fearless truth-telling, and inviting people to Wake Up!, Show Up!, Grow Up!, Rise Up!” the radio show host said in an interview with Medium in May.
Still determined to set people on a conscious path toward self-healing and fulfillment.
“I was born to help people heal from unspeakable trauma and loss. My career was more of a calling than a choice. It was evident at a very early age that I had the innate gift of compassion, curiosity and understanding for people with broken hearts and lives, although the skillset and training came later in life.. My upbringing exposed me to multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-religious experiences,” she told the publication.
“The Dr. Robin Show” launches on Sept. 26 at 11 a.m on SiriusXM Urban View (channel 126.)
