About The Ask Dr. Reilly Show:

The Ask Dr. Reilly Show is a 20-30 minute, one-one-one session with young and mature women (and sometimes men) where we discuss the traumatic issues that are faced in the inner cities. This living room like discussion focuses on abuse, sexual issues like rape, domestic violence, and sexuality, that impact our community. The host, Dr. Anissa Reilly is a success story. She received her doctorate in spite of suffering from Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from issues like those she discusses on the show. She has embraced the “Wounded Healer” archetype as described by psychologist Carl Jung.
