What I Wish I'd Said Wednesday

Rebecca Wong of Connectfulness and Practice of Being Seen

Rebecca WongRebecca Wong is a relationship therapist and consultant. She's a co-host of the Practice Of Being Seen podcast and the creator of Connectfulness, a research-based practice that encourages you to explore and embrace every aspect of your humanity – including everything that’s marvelous and all that’s messy.

Rebecca helps her clients dare to share their truest self with the world. Rebecca says, "when you truly see yourself you create a ripple effect that allows you to be the change you wish to see in the world, and that invites those around you to do the same."

For What I Wish I'd Said Wednesday we discuss:
  • Why Niche is so important
  • The power of relationships and networking for referrals
  • How referring to others is a part of playing the log game the right way
  • How shifting into a private pay practice changed her “why”
  • How she came off insurance piece by piece
  • Sliding scale snafu’s
  • How she dropped half her caseload and made more money
  • The things she didn’t expect to happen that made it a little harder
