Comprehensive practice-building advice, made delightfully accessible

Growing a therapy practice can be daunting, and the mounting pile of (often conflicting) advice out there can lead to overwhelm. Gordon’s podcast is a welcome beacon of clarity and encouragement. I’ve enjoyed learning from his thoughtful conversations on all aspects of practice-building, and I’m now honored to have joined him as a guest. Thank you for cheering us all on, Gordon!
