Help for the Helpers explores the bold, courageous and often out-of-the-box ways that professionals have shaped their careers in the helping fields to best serve their own wants and needs. Each week I have the privilege of speaking with tenacious helpers that are taking extraordinary measures to manifest their personal calling, improve upon their physical and emotional well-being, make radical lifestyle changes, plug into creative outlets, and meet (or soar past) their financial goals. Their stories are SO IMPORTANT and UTTERLY INSPIRING.

    HELP FOR THE HELPERS Episode 11: Mindfullness and Your Career with Viki Stith

    HELP FOR THE HELPERS Episode 11: Mindfullness and Your Career with Viki Stith

    Any other helpers out there that are prone to fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants decision making? How about staying paralyzed in one place, opting not to try new things even when we know our current situation isn’t the right fit? Ignoring our intuition because of fear, doubt, or insecurity? No? Just me?

    I talk this week with Viki Stith, a woman who has all the regular fears and insecurities as the rest of us, but who trusts and listens to her gut in order to make decisions, resulting in a very cool career as a helper that’s moved at an extraordinary speed. Her personal work with Buddhism and mindfulness has shaped how she approaches her career. She is a force, to be sure!



    Victoria Stith uses mindfulness and other evidence-based practices to help parents of addicted adult children find peace of mind and freedom from suffering, while being compassionate and loving parents. She is also a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in mid-life transitions, anxiety, and stress-related issues. She’s been practicing mindfulness meditation in the Buddhist tradition for 25 years.

    HELP FOR THE HELPERS Episode 8: Being Authentic with Ourselves and our Money w/ Tiffany Mclain

    HELP FOR THE HELPERS Episode 8: Being Authentic with Ourselves and our Money w/ Tiffany Mclain

    This week I had the privilege of speaking with Tiffany McLain! Her podcast, The Money Sessions, inspired me to consider my own worth, wants and needs in private practice when setting my fee and considering taking insurance (which I don’t!). Tiffany is dynamic, thoughtful, engaging, and willing to get down in the dirt with the difficult feelings and thoughts we helpers have about money. This episode is priceless.



    Tiffany McLain, MFT is a therapist & consultant whose mantra is, “Full fees are the new black.” Via her program, The Lean In. MAKE BANK. Academy, she helps therapists in private practice overcome their shame about making bank so they can help the clients they are truly passionate about serving without sacrificing their own wellbeing. She’s been featured in Psychology Today Magazine, Psych Central, Huffington Post, KGO Radio, SF Weekly and Forbes. You can find out more by visiting www.heytiffany.com.

In my humble opinion...

So guys, this is my podcast, and I’m not unbiased. That said - I think the stories and advice shared here are invaluable and a great resource for helping professionals thinking about new and innovative ways to take better care of themselves and maybe even change their whole lives.

With HFTH, I’m making the resource I wish I had access to years ago as a young helping professional. The guests I interview here offer so much. Give us a listen.

Highly relevant for helpers - and beyond!

I’m not in a helping profession, but I find these podcasts inspirational and relevant. Dana’s conversations with people who are finding ways to meet their own needs are full of humor and soul. Highly recommend!
