My guest today is Benjamin Reisterer, LPC, in Grand Rapids, MI. He has successfully accomplished something that is a frequent topic of discussion in the STC Facebook community: he designed and created an app. It’s called MetaFi, and it’s a more efficient way for clients to track emotions on a daily basis. He had to think outside the box and take action to see this idea become a reality. We’ll discuss the process he went through and the lessons he’s learned.

My guest today is Dr. Katayune (Kat) Kaeni, who is a psychologist in CA specializing in maternal mental health. Our topic is one that comes up frequently in the STC Facebook community. It’s about giving live presentations and workshops. My friend Kat is seen as an authority on this subject because she’s done so many events. She knows the value of presentations as great referral sources and a way to gain potential clients. She also knows how overwhelming the fear of public speaking can be. Join us for this exciting conversation!

Welcome! My guest today is Amanda Petrik, LCPC in Topeka, Kansas. In addition to her counseling work, Amanda is also a registered play therapist. She recently made the transition from part-time private practice to full-time, which may sound easier than it actually is! Our discussion today stems from a post Amanda made in the STC Facebook community that got an overwhelming response. Join me to hear how she wrote letters to introduce herself and her practice to healthcare providers in her area, the response she received, and what she’s learned along this unconventional path.
