Have fun!

Let’s get real. Working in the mental health field is challenging on so👏🏼 many👏🏼 freaking👏🏼 levels👏🏼. Your heart, soul, body, and mind are drained as you constantly put yourself out there for your clients— seldom feeling like it’s enough. Even the most balanced therapist feels this energy face-suck (but let’s face it when was the last time you felt balanced in your work/life??). We hold TLC not only for the clients we’re currently seeing but past clients AND the future ones on our ever-growing waitlists. We can’t save everybody, but we sure as heck act like it. These days, especially when COVID-19 isolates us further 🙄, the need for a community of like-minded individuals is everything! That’s where Coffee + Consult comes in. We are that burst of energy you’ve been searching for. Like a hot cup of coffee, a relaxing cup of tea, or that much-needed glass of wine. We take care of you because we are you.

Your people. Your tribe. Your posse.

Before Coffee and Consult, I felt so lonely in private practice. It felt like I was trying to make friends with people who were wanting to compete against me and "steal clientele." Now, it feels open and comfortable, and everyone wants to connect and work together, no one wants to steal from others. In fact, I have gotten several great-fit referrals from people at Coffee and Consult! I also love being able to send folks to therapists I trust in Coffee and Consult! I definitely don't feel so alone, and it is really awesome when my associates working with me feel comfortable and able to connect, as well. It's like a genuine community of support and encouragement :)

Business Book of the Month

Five Stars Icon

Great at Work is one of those books that I reread at least once a year. It's an absolute favorite. If you're feeling stuck at work, whether you're an employee or a business owner, this book will refresh you.

Hansen takes you on a journey to understanding how to be more successful in what you do by implementing 7 practices. I've found step 1, do less and then obsess, to be incredibly helpful in evaluating my systems and figuring out if what I was focused on doing was effective or if I was just creating busywork (spoiler, I'm usually just creating busywork).

The book also helps you to evaluate your enjoyment of your work compared to your unique skill set. I have found this practice incredibly restorative, and I've often changed trajectories in my business by taking a good look at my passion and the purpose of my work.

For those of you working in teams, there are several principles to collaborating with others. I have used some of these principles and found them to be helpful in my work with clients and parents.

The book concludes with a chapter about preventing burnout and achieving work-life balance. If I have any criticism, it is that this chapter is too short!
