Elizabeth Mina ,

Helpful

Just found you! Thanks so much for the great podcast and helpful tips. A future video idea could be ways on how graduate students in school can prepare for a private practice. Thanks again! From: Elizabeth

Whale face ,

Relatable

I find myself saying ‘YUP!’ out loud as I am listening to him. I appreciate how honest Juan is and talks about successes and failures. It feels very authentic and real. Thank you Juan!

Smash* ,

So glad to have stumbled upon this

I found this podcast less than a week ago, and I have already listened to more than a dozen episodes. Because it’s EXACTLY WHAT I NEED. And I have really enjoyed it. Juan is really engaging and easy to listen to, and the topics have been right-on for me, someone who is starting a private practice after being out of the field for a while, and my previous experience was not in a private practice setting anyway. There’s variety, as well, and I have to say I’ve loved it all so far. Thanks for all that you guys are doing, it’s making a difference for me.
