The Pursuing Private Practice Podcast with Jennifer McGurk
I want to thank Whitney Trotter for coming on to the Pursuing Private Practice Podcast for this episode and challenging me to think in a new way. Whitney has a gift for putting into words some of the more difficult thoughts and conversations that many of us are having around privileges and criticisms.
Some of the topics discussed include:
- How to work with clients as they are going through trauma
- How to take care of ourselves when we are working closely with a client who is experiencing trauma
- The privilege of being a business owner
- The balance of giving and receiving as a business owner
- Whitney’s insight into growing a business in a local community
Congrats on starting a private practice! I bet you’re so excited, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed with all of the advice coming at you from all over the place–I get it!
