Show notes

  1. Life doesn't have to be perfect in order to start your private practice. Circumstances aren't always going to be ideal.

  2. You can heal from your own trauma and still be a wonderful therapist. Healing yourself and helping others to heal aren't mutually exclusive.

  3. It is so good to have goals. But, it is important to know that everyone's journey will look a little different.

our awesome sponsors:

If you are in private practice, you wear a lot of hats. And some of those hats are totally great. But some — like filing taxes and running payroll, for example — not so great. That’s where Gusto comes in. Gusto makes payroll, taxes, and HR actually easy for small businesses. Fast, simple payroll processing, benefits, and expert HR support all in one place.

Gusto automatically pays and files your federal, state, and local taxes so you don’t have to worry about it. Plus they make it easy to add on health benefits and even 401(k)s for your team. So let them wear one of your many hats — you have better things to do. Listeners get three months free when they run their first payroll. Try a demo and see for yourself at
