I’m going solo today to have an honest conversation about My Struggle with Finding a Niche. It’s been a difficult path that stills feel a little raw and emotional for me as I’ve taken the leap back into private practice this year. Join me now as I share some thoughts and tips I’ve picked up along the way.

My guest today is Annie Schuessler, MFT, who coaches clinicians through her private practice in California. Our topic is a fun but important one: Finding and Owning your Superpowers as a private practitioner. We’re each gifted in some ways, but the challenge is often sifting through it all and focusing on what we’re best at. Then we have to know how to delegate or de-emphasize the rest. The process can be a struggle, but I hope this conversation will help you know it’s ok to be you and help you own what you’re good at.

Today’s guest is Kim Engstrom, a colleague who practices in my local area, just south of Philadelphia.  Our topic is perfect for my return after a break; it’s about practicing mindfulness. As practitioners, we must learn to take time for ourselves, even when we’re battling the daily grind. Mindfulness is a basic idea, but a powerful medium that can be helpful for anyone, no matter what your profession. Let’s join Kim to hear what mindfulness means for her and how she fits it into her life.
