All Things Private Practice

All Things Private Practice Podcast is where we dive deep into the gritty, unfiltered world of being a mental health entrepreneur and a private practice owner. Join us as we explore the emotional roller coaster of this wild journey, tackling the raw and unapologetic aspects that often go unspoken. In each episode, we fearlessly dissect the dark corners of self-doubt, resilience, impostor syndrome, and paralyzing perfectionism. No sugar-coating here. This is where we get down and dirty, exposing the messy reality that comes with building your own mental health private practice. Hosted in an interview-style format, we bring you authentic conversations with entrepreneurs who have wrestled with their demons and emerged victorious. We delve into their stories of triumph, failure, and everything in between. Prepare yourself for unfiltered tales of blood, sweat, and tears, as our guests share their journeys of self-discovery and growth. It’s time to strip away the glossy facade and embrace the rawness that lies beneath the surface. We challenge societal norms, smash through glass ceilings, and unapologetically question the status quo. Brace yourself for a podcast that isn’t afraid to confront the messy reality head-on. Tune in every Saturday as we release new episodes, igniting your entrepreneurial fire and propelling you forward on your private practice odyssey.
