Ruthie Kalai, LCSW is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over twenty years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. She has always loved helping others. Her passion for working with people in their 20s and 30s stems from years of working with children and adolescents in schools. She has helped students find their path into adulthood and sees her current work as a continuation of offering that guidance and support. Previous clients describe her as very kind, empathetic, non-judgmental, and caring. Counseling is in her blood, it's all she has ever done and feels as passionate about it today as she did when she started.


Over the last five years, she has created a traveling remote therapy practice; born out of her love for travel and desire to continue working with her clients. She has been fortunate enough to spend months at a time in remote locations, enjoying all that these cities and countries have to offer while maintaining a thriving therapy practice. Her new venture, One Week Each Year, is her opportunity to offer fully curated trips for professional women. Trips are designed for professional women who want to give themselves “One Week Each Year” to travel but don’t want to spend the time planning the trip. Trips are geared toward a more mature audience—women who are past the “partying” stage and want to enjoy the finer things life has to offer. In addition to guided tours and excursions, professional development mastermind workshops will also take place. The goal is to help women return from these retreats with achievable goals both professionally and personally. Our inaugural trip will be to Venice, Italy in May.

We moved to Ormond Beach, FL for a month.  We had barely settled in when Hurricane Nicole came along, now we have moved on to Cape Canaveral. We are one block from the beach and we can see the launch pad at Kennedy space center from the beach! It's very cool. Ken's daughter is coming to visit this weekend and we plan to go to the space center on Saturday.

This month was a month of connecting with friends and family and launching big ideas. 

I flew into Greensboro for a weekend to see my nephews.  In Ormand Beach, I was able to reunite with an old college roommate who lives near where we are staying. Last week I traveled to Scottsdale, AZ and spent 5 days  with my trusted business besties for some much-needed R&R.  We shared plans, strategies, and goals as we talked late into the night over prosecco and snacks. Even though we were serious about achieving our goals, there were still plenty of laughs along the way.

Last week I took a huge leap and re-launched my Flagship membership 'Bill like a Boss.'

I finally took the advice of others and combined my membership and my DIY Billing course into one. I just about doubled my membership in two weeks!

On my trip to Scottsdale, I solidified my vision for 2023.

🐝 The Traveling Therapist membership! Eeek! So excited about this.

🐝 Plan a Traveling Therapist live event! Viking Cruise?

🐝 Continue to grow Bill Like a Boss and help at least 1000 therapists build their insurance-based practices in 2023.

🐝 The Traveling Therapist will Sponsor Thriving Therapist Institute events and attend live to continue to Thrive in my business and network with other Thriving/traveling Therapists.

🐝 Support my fellow multi-passionate entrepreneurial friends in their businesses to help us all grow and expand beyond our wildest dreams

Mary Jo Harmon recently obtained a Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling from the University of Memphis.  As the first college graduate in her family, she embraces a dynamic curiosity to create a career path less traveled. She returned to graduate school after a lengthy career in IT Management and made a goal early in her academic program to achieve both a high-compensation career while embracing a love for psychology and the desire to impact the health and well-being of Black people.

For the past nearly 12 months, she has traveled the world while completing the requirements to become a licensed mental health counselor working in private practice.  Her future plans include further international travel in 2023 to Central America and Africa while finalizing licensure requirements. Mary Jo also identifies with the health of any size community and is committed to raising awareness of fat stigma.  She has completed research and published in the areas of young adults, intellectual disabilities, and career outcomes and has recently been accepted into the Adler University Psychology and Organizational Management doctoral program.

Despite spending three years in school, Mary Jo Harmon didn't begin to interact with clients until the very last week of the program. “You know, when you leave the airport, and you see pictures of models selling things, they don't look Asian. So it's a lot of pressure for women here.”
