    The Challenges of Finding a Therapist | Derek Bylsma, LCPC

    There is a lack of available therapists right now. Mental health awareness seems to be at an all-time high — and that makes it a challenge in finding a therapist. It’s a therapist shortage. There are many reasons for that. And this conversation featuring mental health professional, Derek Bylsma, focuses on that and more.

    In this SE podcast episode, Derek Bylsma, LCPC takes on these topics:



    * finding a therapist

    * overconsumption of bad news and what to do about it

    * conversations that take place around Roe v Wade and other high-profile topics

    * awareness around athlete mental health



    If you are looking to speak to a licensed therapist, reach out to Derek’s team at Millennium Counseling Center.

    In case you haven’t noticed, we love podcasts. In fact, yeah, you should have one. We’ll even build it for you. A podcast that is. Simply contact us here – we’ll get your podcast published, fast. 

    More about Daniel Pardo and DPC Labs (digital player cards):

    DPC Labs created an NFT marketplace that creates NFT digital player cards for athletes of all ages and sports.

    DPC Labs is a Miami-based sports technology company. DPC is built on the Solana blockchain and allows users to buy, sell, and trade NFTs on a platform designed for every sports enthusiast.

The DPC card unlocks long-term benefits and giveaways. Each card tier will have different incentives, giveaways, and opportunities including real-life engagements with the athlete’s cards that are held as NFTs. The higher the card tier, the better rewards. With these cards, you can buy, sell, trade, and hold your NFTs on a dynamic NFT ecosystem for sports enthusiasts and NFT collectors!



    Web3 | So Many Questions! | A Podcast Series

    Web3 is happening so fast—or at least that’s what it seems like. In actuality, there is time—a lot of time. It’s very early in the Web3 world. It’s also very confusing (maybe because there are so many buzzwords or maybe it’s because there are a lot of people promising a bright future). I’d say it’s best to talk to those in the space. And that’s where this Web3 dialogue (podcast series) is coming from. It’s an opportunity to share space with those that have experience, stories, and proof of concept related to all things Web3. This episode just so happens to hone in on all things NFT player cards.

    Web3 & NFTs | NFT Player Cards with DPC Labs Founder, Daniel Pardo

    So let’s learn about Web3 and the entire infrastructure including NFTs, marketplaces, smart contracts, and young athletes. Let’s be open to it. I’m not one to suggest running out and buying a bunch of land in the Metaverse, but I would suggest paying attention to it, asking questions, and then seeing what interests you. The creativity and the opportunity got me. I hope this episode helps you understand it a bit more—or if you are already in the Web3 world, I hope this episode opens you into a new part of the community.
