She's passionate about giving women a safe space to explore, unpack, unlearn, relearn and find and live their truth. On today's episode Samantha and I talk about expressing our gender and sexuality through style, and the fear that the folks we are attracted to, might not be attracted to us as our style and identity evolves. We talk about Samantha's very traditional marriage, traumatizing, and drawn out divorce, her explosive sexual identity realization, coming out experience, and how her personal experience and knowledge as a therapist helps her assist women to unpack, and unlearn harmful messaging from heteronormativity, and misogyny, that both negatively affect our relationship to the self, and our queer romantic relationships. She shares her advice on how to move through a divorce while coming to terms with your sexual identity, and we end with her best advice. If you enjoy today's episode with Samantha, which I have a strong feeling you will, make sure you keep tuning in because Samantha will be back in February to get more dialed in with us on the topic of sexual energy and attraction.You can learn more about Samantha, and connect with her here: Curiousquestioningandcomingout.comInstagramTiktokYoutube

Penny Wise and Pound Foolish: Thoughts on investing and getting paid as a therapist Curt and Katie chat about money: considerations for investing and getting paid as a therapist.  We look at typical unpaid opportunities and how to decide whether to do them. We also talk about client care practices that may take time, but could keep clients.   Transcripts for this episode will be available at mtsgpodcast.com! In this podcast episode we talk about money mistakes that many therapists make We talk a lot about making sure that therapists get paid, but thought it was worth talking about when therapists should invest in their business and when they may want to work for free.   What are the lessons Curt and Katie learned around investing in their businesses? Electronic Health Records/Practice Management systems are very helpful Automation helps your business to run without you Sometimes visibility is worth working for free How do you decide if you should do something for your business? “I gave a presentation, it's gotta be more than 10 years ago at this point, for a group of students. I think, like five people showed up…  But I still get referrals from one of the people who came there. And it turned into a really wonderful relationship, because I sounded like I knew what I was talking about.” – Curt Widhalm, LMFT What are the practical benefits and challenges? What are the other potential benefits (like enjoyment)? What is the investment of time, money, and expertise? What is the return on investment? Specifics on deciding to take unpaid work “There are elements of this where it's really looking at is the audience strong enough? Is there any money eventually? And do you actually want the referrals from the audience that you're going to be in front of? Because if all of those things are yes… I would consider – at least the first time out – doing some content creation (because I love content creation) without getting paid to see does it actually pan out. But you want to make sure you track that to determine: am I going to actually get anything from this this relationship and from this work that I'm doing?” – Katie Vernoy, LMFT What new relationships will be developed? Will you get visibility with the audience you're seeking? Will you obtain access to relevant learning? Is the entity that is asking you legit and established? Are there other forms of compensation (like photos or videos)? Are you able to get clients from this work? (And what are new clients worth to you?) Client care versus getting paid “I don't think it's helpful, at least not for customer service purposes, to view your client as trying to take advantage of you.” – Katie Vernoy, LMFT Setting up appropriate boundaries and policies Avoiding additional costs, if you can (i.e., setting fees in a private pay practice to include these extras) Resources for Modern Therapists mentioned in this Podcast Episode: We've pulled together resources mentioned in this episode and put together some handy-dandy links.

Talking about your own mental health can be even more difficult if you work in the mental health field. There is shame and stigma attached to a therapist who admits that they need help because the assumption is that therapists don't need help with mental health. My guest shares her story of postpartum struggles and the effect on her relationships and life as she experienced stress, anxiety, and isolation when her second child was born during the pandemic. Join us to hear her perspective. Laura Galindo is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California, New York, and Connecticut, where she currently resides. She has been in the field for over a decade, providing therapy for individuals who have chronic mental illness, and she works with those who are actively serving in the US military. She runs her private practice in Connecticut, where she is certified in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), EMDR, and perinatal mental health.  Show Highlights: How Laura's second daughter arrived just days before the world entered the COVID shutdown How Laura's maternity leave ended up not going according to the plan, along with feeding problems with her newborn  How the pandemic shutdown prevented Laura from receiving the help she needed and left her feeling very isolated How Laura felt “mom guilt” very deeply and still feels resentment about the pandemic Why it was hard for Laura, the therapist, to admit that something was wrong with her How seeing a therapist for EMDR and using “movement as medicine” began to help Laura in many ways Why Laura was torn and conflicted about returning to work and felt guilty about cutting her maternity leave short How Laura finally realized that she had to “fill her own cup” before trying to be a good wife, mom, and therapist How Laura faced the questions from coworkers about shortening her maternity leave– and handled the additional anxiety of learning the new telehealth system  Why Laura questioned her therapy skills and knowledge because of her unrealistic expectations for herself Why Laura became certified in perinatal mental health as a result of her experiences How Laura first realized that it was time for her to seek help What Laura would say to struggling parents Resources: Connect with Laura: Website and Instagram https://www.thrivecounselingandwellnessgroup.com   Visit www.postpartum.net for resources!

— Being grateful is synonymous with expressing our feelings for others and for ourselves. We can also feel a lot better about ourselves and our lives by simply speaking words of love and praise to others. In order to feel grateful, you must feel the right way, about the right things, and at the right time. Motivation and self-discipline are inextricably linked. Although it does not provide instant relief from pain or stress, it gives us the feeling of being in control again. Gratitude gives us control over our lives by acknowledging and appreciating our assets. By acknowledging and appreciating our assets, gratitude empowers us. In the words of Robin Sharma: “Gratitude drives happiness. Happiness boosts productivity. Productivity reveals mastery. And mastery inspires the world.” Valeria interviews Kia Ebadat —  He is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Life Coach, and CEO of Resilience Coaching and Counseling.Kia has 7 years of experience working with clients of all ages who struggle with anxiety, depression, relationships issues, current life challenges, and has helped them overcome obstacles to reach their full potential. Not everything was so simple for Kia growing up. After realizing soccer was not his passion anymore, Kia struggled with finding his purpose. In his 20s, Kia felt hopeless and had no direction in life. He dealt with the pressures of not meeting his family's expectations and compared himself to other family members who were doctors, lawyers, and very successful. This created a lot of insecurity, stress, and anxiety, which led him down a path of self-destructive patterns such as partying, using alcohol and drugs. Until one day he picked up a Tony Robbins book and realized that his struggles and challenges were gifts for him to lead him to a resilient life. Kia worked on changing his habits that created problems for himself, and began learning and becoming a student of life. With the help of gratitude, meditation, and coaching, Kia was able to connect with his passion and purpose. He became a licensed therapist where his life took off. He stopped comparing himself to others, created his own path in life, and followed his intuition. Kia is very passionate about what makes individuals so motivated and have the ability to overcome anything that comes their way. He has read lots of books, and interviewed successful individuals in relationships, business, finance, and personal growth and has realized that your beliefs and your values create resilience and success in your life. If you BELIEVE you can do it, then anything is possible, sprinkle that with gratitude and great things will come your way. We all have resilience in us, we are capable of achieving anything we want and reaching our full potential.” To learn more about Kia Ebadat and his work, please visit: https://www.resiliencecouns.com/         — This podcast is a quest for well-being, a quest for a meaningful life through the exploration of fundamental truths, enlightening ideas, insights on physical, mental, and spiritual health.

  A snake that is unable to shed its skin does not deserve to live. We know those traumatic memories are imprinted in our sensory and emotional nodes leading to trauma getting stuck in our neural network that alters aspects of our lives that we may not even be consciously aware of. With the advances in clinical trials on psychedelic substances and psychotherapy, research has shown that psychedelics with the guidance of a therapist can be used as tools to reach our secondary consciousness and release deep traumas held deep within our minds. To share her personal experiences with the inclusion of psychedelics Dr. Graham Taylor speaks with Natalie Liberman, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Natalie has been a faculty at Gerry Grossman Seminars (since 2012), and an Adjunct Faculty at Pepperdine University, Graduate School of Education and Psychology (since 2015). In her private practice, Natalie works with an array of clients dealing with substance abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career and life transitions, sexual problems, social anxiety disorders, communication issues, self-esteem, and general quality of life issues. Today's show is going to be more of a human-interest-focused show as we discuss with Natalie, her life, her personal growth, and her work in therapy. In the words of Natalie, “I haven't had a journey that was not impactful and I've never experienced things that felt out of control. Every journey that I had been on, had provided me such an impactful insight for myself to be able to see who I am.”   Connect with Natalie Liberman on Instagram @insight_with_natalie or visit: https://www.instagram.com/insight_with_natalie/ Or email Natalie at natalie@insightwithnatalie.com For more information about How to Change your Mind by Michael Pollan, please visit: https://michaelpollan.com/books/how-to-change-your-mind/ For more information about This is Your Mind on Plants by Michael Pollan, please visit: https://michaelpollan.com/books/this-is-your-mind-on-plants/ For more information about Fantastic Fungi on Netflix, please visit: https://www.netflix.com/title/81183477 For more information about Another Self on Netflix, please visit: https://www.netflix.com/title/81380432 For more information about It Didn't Start with You by Mark Wolynn, please visit: https://markwolynn.com/it-didnt-start-with-you/ For more information about the Psychedelic Somatic Institute, please visit: https://www.psychedelicsomatic.org

How to Manage Your Practice as a Traveling Therapist: An Interview with Kym Tolson, LCSW Curt and Katie interview Kym Tolson, the traveling therapist.  We look at how a modern therapist can be a digital nomad, including what business logistics to consider as well as how to travel well. Transcripts for this episode will be available at mtsgpodcast.com! An Interview with Kym Tolson, LCSW I'm Kym Tolson, I'm an LCSW and CSAC licensed in the state of Virginia. I have an online insurance-based therapy practice. I lived in Florida until 2/2/22 when we (my BF and I) became digital nomads. Now, we will live in Air BnB's and travel the world. During the COVID lockdowns, I had a lot of time to work on my "side-hustles". I still saw my clients, but I also continued to perfect my course, "DIY Insurance Billing for Private Practice". Over 950 clinicians have taken my course and I'm humbled to be able to guide so many therapists on a path of empowerment and knowledge in their practices. I truly believe it's imperative to have at least a basic understanding of insurance billing if you are going to accept it in your practice. In addition to my course, I created a supportive community, Bill Like A Boss, for therapists who are billing insurance in their private practices. Since that time, I've created 8 income streams to support my traveling obsession. Luckily, coaching other therapists through my courses, consultations, and membership has given me space to see fewer clients and make a higher income. I've been able to scale up and serve more people at the same time instead of being stuck in the 1:1 therapy model. Now I have the space and finances to be a digital nomad and actually enjoy the places I'm traveling to! Most recently, I started a Podcast!! The Traveling Therapist to share my journey as well as the stories of other traveling therapists. Please feel free to reach out to info@kymtolson.com, www.thetravelingtherapist.com, and privatepracticeinsurancebilling.com if you would like to learn more. In this podcast episode, we talk about working as a therapist when traveling We reached out to our friend Kym Tolson who lives and works as a digital nomad.   “It's kind of like being on vacation every day.” – Kym Tolson, LCSW What are the most important considerations when working as a digital nomad? Checking the Wi-Fi before booking your accommodations How long to stay in each place (Kym says about 2.5 weeks) Finding a schedule that works and only takes small tweaks when you change time zones Planning around the seasons and ideal locations What are the business considerations for traveling therapists? Consult with tax attorney and accountant, where to register your business Reach out to boards for the state you are traveling to (to determine if you can practice within the state) Paying attention to state of licensure and state where you are working Considerations for business write offs and expenses Tracking business expenses, income, and the location these things happen Managing work-life balance as a digital nomad Finding the right times for work Setting a schedule Compartmentalize fun and work separately What have been the biggest surprises in becoming a digital nomad? The number of possibilities for each day How hard it was initially in letting go of stuff and how easy it seems like it is to let go of stuff now The feelings about not having a homebase What are the necessities when traveling as a digital nomad? “We definitely need multiple Wi Fi options… So we have two different hotspot carriers because if mine's not working, his might be and vice versa. We can use each other's spots. We also have another portable mobile hotspot that we can turn on and off as we need. It connects to any cell service that's local to where that hotspot is. So that's another alternative. So we definitely have that taken care of everywhere we go, because we both need the Internet to be able to work.” – Kym Tolson, LCSW Specific creature comforts or life necessities (for Kym it's pots/pans to manage Celiac disease) Computer Numerous Wi-Fi options (different carriers for cell-phone coverage and portable mobile hotspot) Airbnbs have everything Being organized Understanding of the impacts of mode of travel and type of accommodations How do clients react to therapists who are on the road? Decide on the level of transparency on traveling or location Virtual background for continuity Clients are usually pretty flexible with traveling therapist What are the biggest challenges when thinking about the traveling lifestyle? Leaving family and home Scheduling Costs and money mindset Loneliness if you are doing it on your own Organization and planning   Our Generous Sponsor for this episode of the Modern Therapist's Survival Guide: Thrizer Thrizer is a new modern billing platform for therapists that was built on the belief that therapy should be accessible AND clinicians should earn what they are worth.

Every time you bill a client through Thrizer, an insurance claim is automatically generated and sent directly to the client's insurance. From there, Thrizer provides concierge support to ensure clients get their reimbursement quickly, directly into their bank account. By eliminating reimbursement by check, confusion around benefits, and obscurity with reimbursement status, they allow your clients to focus on what actually matters rather than worrying about their money.

Becoming a mother comes with so many changes. After having kids, it can be difficult to maintain a sense of self and find purpose (or a moment to yourself!) outside of motherhood. Specifically, after the last few years of the pandemic, the challenges that mothers are faced with have only increased, and are leaving long-lasting impacts. To talk more about this topic, I have guest Catherine O'Brien on the podcast. We're discussing many different pieces of motherhood, such as maternity leave, connecting with your partner, finding moments for yourself, mental health, and so much more. Ultimately, this is a very candid conversation between two moms voicing what many of us think about on a daily basis. The big takeaway that I want you to walk away with is that you are not alone in any of the feelings that you are experiencing as a mother, wife, friend, or any other role that you play.  Catherine O'Brien is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and the founder of HappyWithBaby.com. She knows what it's like to be overwhelmed, out of energy, and out of ideas as a new parent. She created Happy With Baby in order for new and expecting parents to discover the advice she wishes she could have had when managing expectations of parenthood and relationships. In this episode we discuss: Common challenges that are seen in parenting today. Strategies for postpartum and how to connect with your partner. Social Media and how it makes new mothers feel inadequate.  Long term effects of mental health in relationships. Finding the little moments within your day to do things that fill you up.

He's joining us today to share his book “The Divine Spark Within: Excavating the Mysteries of Sophia and the Deep Christ.” In this book, Daniel Craig Morse, presents a long-lost Creation Story featuring the tragic and heroic Goddess Sophia. According to an ancient portrayal of human origins, this heavenly emissary played a key role in seeding into us a Divine Inner Spark. Inspired by a lifelong exploration into the Sophianic mysteries, Morse draws from recently recovered ancient texts to excavate from the 1st-century CE a New Revelation of Wisdom. This revelation originated from a spiritual mystic he identifies as the Deep Christ, whose teachings and influence extend beyond the confines of how Jesus is portrayed in the New Testament.
