Episode 58: Therapist Influencers Stirring Sh*t Up [featuring Jeff Guenther‪]‬ All Things Private Practice Podcast

    • Entrepreneurship

Many therapists are afraid to show up on social media in any way that relates to their profession and make money using their therapeutic knowledge and skills that isn't 60 minutes in a chair. But is it actually unethical to be a therapist "influencer," or is it the next step in opening up conversations about mental health?
In this episode, I talk with my friend, Jeff Guenther, for the third time on this podcast. Jeff is a therapist, owner of TherapyDen, and a huge voice in the therapist community on TikTok as TherapyJeff. He shares the experiences that he has had with growing a following on TikTok as a therapist, making money doing it, and both the positive and negative feedback he's received.

He has been in private practice since 2005 and currently leads workshops on how health and wellness practitioners can build their digital brand and attract more clients online. Jeff is the creator and owner of two highly-ranked therapist directory sites, Portland Therapy Center and TherapyDen. Jeff also has a large TikTok following as @TherapyJeff.
