In this episode, our host Kelly Fitzgerald Junco, speaks with Justine about her journey into recovery, her quest to become a therapist and help others, as well as the many labels – veteran, mom, bisexual, biracial, rape survivor – she wears and sheds, and how she started to truly own her story.
Justine also details her tumultuous life and everything women have had to endure in silence in her new memoir F*ck This: Permission Granted to Own Your Story.
