Being a therapist is difficult at times. Grad school and trainings help us prepare for this field in some ways, but formal education can have its limitations.
Therapists, especially when you're first starting out in your career or making a transition to something new, often struggle with feeling like an imposter. It helps to have some support throughout your career to help you learn, grow, and feel part of a community.
I've had a lot of support throughout my career so far and I believe in paying it forward. Connecting with other therapists is essential to your personal and professional growth.

I created a YouTube channel for aspiring therapists and new therapists (but really any therapists may benefit!). There's a lot of knowledge you gain when in grad school, but it often isn't enough. It's the foundation of your education. However, there's so much more to being a therapist that you just can't learn in a classroom.
The Keys to Therapy is a place to increase your confidence when it comes to being a therapist and to learn all the things grad school didn't teach you. I'll discuss my experience in the therapy field and have other therapists on as guests to share their journey to becoming a therapist as well.
We'll talk about our grad school experiences, internships, the licensure process, jobs we've held, trainings we've taken, and lessons learned along the way.
If you're a therapist and you'd like to potentially be a guest on my channel, email me at Samantha@TheTherapySuitePLLC.com to discuss it!

In private practice, you can set up consult calls to screen potential clients. If you're the owner of a practice, it's likely you want to cut down on admin time. You're busy enough already managing your caseload and other aspects of your business.
I have successfully booked about 90% of the consults I have had. I can teach you my system for setting up consult calls through Simple Practice, incorporating it into your practice in a way that reduces admin time, and help you make the most of your time while on the call.
