Hi, I'm Dr. Sabrina Nichole Crouch, host of the podcast "F*ck Being Stuck". I was inspired by my own journey to healing chronic pain using meditation. This podcast spotlights the unrelenting women who went from managing to mastering their health challenges, and the badass alternative practitioners who are changing the way we heal.
Takenya Battle joins us to discuss how the power of music not only brings us back to moments we cherish, but how we can use it to better out public speaking.
When Takenya, an incredibly passionate music lover and instructor, sets out to bring her students the joy of music and self-expression, she must confront the challenge of bridging the gap between the different generations and their unique experiences with music.
Music is a vehicle for people to get out what’s in, and a way for me to creatively bring what you put on paper right to your ear. – Takenya Battle
Takenya grew up in a generation where children were seen and not heard, but her love for music and passionate energy found her voice. With her parents’ soulful records and the lively church choir, she learned early on that music was an intimate way to express oneself.
Takenya’s journey began when she and her cousins chose piano lessons, and through those simple tunes, she discovered her true form of expression. As a music instructor and songwriter, she now helps others find their voices and connect with their emotions through music. Through teaching and writing custom music for entrepreneurs, Takenya harnesses the power of music to create soul-shifting connections, proving that music truly can change lives.
Takenya Battle, a classically trained vocalist and pianist, has dedicated her life to the power of music and its connection to emotional expression. Passionate about music since childhood, she has been a music instructor for over 23 years, helping students uncover and discover themselves through music. Takenya also specializes in crafting custom theme music for entrepreneurs and assisting speakers in finding their most powerful, confident voice. When she isn’t performing or teaching, Takenya devotes her time to adult literacy and empowering often overlooked communities.

I’m Dr. Sabrina Nichole, a licensed psychologist, author and motivational speaker, but more importantly I’m a person who was stuck and had to find my way through a chronic pain condition by unconventional methods.
I’m on a mission to help women get unstuck from their thought patterns that no longer serve them in order to find relief and freedom in a way they did not think was possible. My guests and I will share stories of our journey from stuck to unstuck. There is more than one way to heal, and we will explore various methods on this show.
If you are willing to open your mind to possibilities, then this is the right place for you.
