Defeating Depression | Ariane Aramburo on Decide to Live with Jessica Larché

The “Decide to Live with Jessica Larché” online talk show is AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW!

The first episode of the season, “Defeating Depression,” features fellow morning news anchor, postpartum depression survivor – and my best friend – Ariane Aramburo. Her battle with postpartum depression following the birth of her daughter sent her life into turmoil.

“I couldn’t explain it. This wave of heaviness and sadness,” Ariane explains. “I felt guilty that I didn’t think having a kid was going to be like this. I kept thinking ‘is this the baby blues?’”

On this episode of Decide to Live ®, Ariane reveals how therapy, vulnerability and fitness helped her defeat postpartum depression and step into her power.

This episode also explores how our friendship helped pave the way for my own 100-pound weight loss and health journey. I initially created the Decide to Live ® podcast and the Jessica on a Journey blog years ago to share the spiritual and emotional lessons I’ve learned along the journey to change – and save – my life.

On this new platform as an online talk show, each month I am inviting other champions like Ariane to share what they are learning from the challenges in their lives, too. Be sure to subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss any episode of the debut season!

Storytelling is our most powerful tool to change – and save – lives. This is the biggest lesson I’ve learned in my 12 years as an Emmy award-winning television news anchor and reporter. It is my honor to serve as a morning news anchor in Norfolk, Virginia, where thousands of families in coastal Virginia trust me to help start their day. While it brings me so much joy to serve my community in this capacity for years to come, I am excited to expand Decide to Live ® as my own independent purpose project to inspire people across the globe.

Thank you for joining me on this adventure. It’s my mission to share stories that inspire hope and encourage everyone, no matter how daunting the road ahead may seem, that they can ignite the champion within and DECIDE TO LIVE!


“A brighter day is just one good decision away. I hope you decide to live!”
