Welcome back to Therapy Chat! This week host Laura Reagan, LCSW-C interviews Annie Schuessler of The Rebel Therapist ®. First, Laura mentioned the high incidence of helping professionals leaving their fields due to stress and burnout, and how this conversation inspires hope for helpers who feel stuck and are considering changing careers. Annie and Laura talked about how helpers and healers can pivot when the day to day is leading them to exhaustion and overwhelm. Annie’s program that helps private practice therapists pivot is opening and she has a special offer, detailed in the show notes!

Annie Schuessler is a business coach and the host of the podcast Rebel Therapist® where she shares stories of people creating unique and innovative businesses. She was a therapist in private practice for 20 years, and a business coach for over 10 years. Her mission is to help people trained as therapists create and launch exceptional programs beyond the therapy room. She lives in San Francisco with her spouse and two children. When she’s not recording a podcast or working with her clients, you can find her trying to convince her family to play Catan with her or watering one of 75 house plants.
