Iyanla: I Need to Trigger Kamiyah to Jump-Start Her Healing

Season 5 Episode 501
Aired on 03/03/2018 | CC tv-14
In Iyanla's initial conversation with Kamiyah Mobley, the 19-year old made it clear that she didn't want to talk about the trauma of being kidnapped at birth and raised by her abductor. However, as Iyanla always says, you cannot heal what you will not speak.

So, Iyanla has another idea for getting Kamiyah to open up, which she carefully explains to Kamiyah's birth father, Craig, in the above video. "I either have to trigger her up—make her mad at me so that she'll speak what she's feeling—or I have to break her down, meaning put her in a situation where her heart breaks," Iyanla says.

Here, Iyanla lays out the specifics of her plan, and Craig expresses his reservations.
