Guest Post: From Agency to Private Practice – How Private Practice Saved My Career

Recently, as I left the office of my newly opened private practice, I was struck with a realization: despite having worked a thirteen hour day, I was feeling energized. In fact, I realized I had been feeling this way for a few weeks now. It didn’t make sense. I had worked shorter days at my agency and yet felt infinitely more miserable and exhausted. That’s when my internal therapist piped up, reminding me that this was probably something to pay attention to. I want to share my reflections on th…

You're Already a Good Writer

If you’re a therapist you’ve already got most of the skills necessary to be a writer, too. You’re likely:
  • Curious about people;
  • Interested in sharing information and inspiration; and
  • Able to construct a coherent narrative.
That means if you want to write, you should. And if you decide to write and want to get it out there for the rest of the world to read and get paid for it, you should do that, too.

Her book is phenomenal and you should get it asap if you're a parent or if you work with parents or kids.
Mercedes recently provided a module for the Marketing Fundamentals eCourse in the Abundance Party that's all about publishing a book so I finally got to meet her outside of Facebook and she was a…

The Abundance Mindset: It Only Took Me Two Years to Develop It

Danielle Kepler has been a big part of the Abundance Practice-Builders FB Group since its early days. I refer to her Insurance Credentialing & Billing For Mental Health Professionals FB Group at least weekly. This woman KNOWS insurance. I love this blog post because Danielle gets real about feeling competitive, being overly full, and toeing the line of burnout… and how she stopped being an “insecure shit” and embraced a more abundant mindset.

What I Expected vs What Happened: a Guest Post from Lindsay Melka

I am so grateful to have gotten to consult with Lindsay Melka and I’m honored that she is writing for the blog this month. She is brilliant, thoughtful, brave and so honest it sometimes makes my heart ache. You’ll get to hear more about her story (the really hard part where she had to stop working entirely to take care of herself) on the podcast June 5 when we flip the usual podcast structure and talk about some unspoken about things that can happen to us as we build. I know a lot of us learn by…
