Excellent support for Private Practice Therapists

Danielle offers clear, organized, and lovingly structured information to therapists. These podcasts are quick and concise. Much like her Instagram, I’m leaving with gold nuggets of support and guidance. So grateful

New favorite podcast

I’ve been following Danielle on Instagram for awhile now and have wished on multiple occasions she had a podcast that I could listen to. I’m so excited that she has one now. I’ve already learned new things from her by listening to the first ones! She is my new favorite podcast to listen to on building a private practice! She is honest about struggles I don’t hear from other practice building podcasts and honest about how she worked through her own roadblocks in a way that brings hope and clarity for those of us just getting started on our private practice journey.
