Maternity Leave and Private Practice with Mary Bech Somich

Episode #25

In this episode I am joined by fellow private practice owner and new mama, Mary Beth Somich from @yourjourneythrough!

Mary Beth just recently had her first baby and today we're talking about her transition into motherhood as a business owner and therapist. We explore how she disclosed her pregnancy with clients, how she prepared for maternity leave as a private practice owner, and the logistical and emotional transition back to work after baby.

Mary Beth and I share some of our personal experiences with maternity leave as therapists and we both offer our own tangible tips for anyone else who is preparing to do the same or in the thick of it.

This episode is a combination of two of the things I am most passionate about (supporting mamas and supporting therapists) and I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.
