An Intimate Look at Digital Marketing Through Instagram with Stephanie Essenfeld @therapyuntangled

March 31, 2020

In this episode I share my conversation with Stephanie of @therapyuntangled. We discuss the steps she took to build meaningful content through digital marketing on instagram that has filled her private practice with her dream clients. We explore ways to connect with your audience and the vulnerable experience of "showing up" in the public digital arena. In these uncertain times (with the current COVID-19 crisis) many therapists are moving their businesses online. While many of us have taken the steps to move our current clients online, Stephanie offers tangible ways we can authentically build meaningful bridges through digital platforms to help future clients find us.

Cultural Sensitivity and Micro Aggressions in our Field with Narissa Harris, LMFT

February 24, 2020

In this episode I share my conversation with cultural consultant Narissa Harris, LMFT @bloomintoyourbestself. I first connected with Narissa when she reached out to me on social media. She appreciated my posts and wanted to share them with people in her life, but found a lack of inclusive representation in the images I was sharing within my content. She was right. Her reaching out led to us connecting and me hiring her to come on the podcast and share her work addressing cultural inclusivity and sensitivity with me (and with you). To continue to follow Narissa's work you can find her at https://www.bloomintoyourbestself.com/ and her and her husband's cultural consultation/supervision business at https://www.culture1st.org/.
