In this episode, we have Sydney Conroy, a first-year PhD student at the University of Cambridge at the PEDAL Research Center. Her current work focuses on the voices and experiences of children in play therapy sessions, as well as issues including trauma, the COVID-19 epidemic, and social discomfort. Sydney has experience working with children and families in both a private practice at Eastside Play Therapy and a community agency environment. She is currently residing in the UK and applying to become a therapist there. She has less knowledge about therapists who travel frequently, but she wants to share her perspective on going to a new country to practice therapy and developing a network. 

Tune in to this episode to find out more about Sydney!

“I think it's going to show up in a lot more nuanced ways that we would only get from therapists’ perspective of like being in the room with people that are processing that week after week, you're not necessarily going to hear that from teachers, or parents or people that are dedicated to looking to those specific issues.”

“I was planning on leaving blue shoes anyway, but I got nervous because they just stopped paying me. And that I can't have the people that I see the most from those insurance companies, I can't have suddenly months of no pay, and then having to scramble to figure all that out.”

“Everything here looks the same. So it's harder for me to identify what's like a not-so-safe neighborhood, just kind of by like picking up on people's behaviors and like the way they're interacting and kind of like, what's going on, and what's perceived as kind of shady behavior in this culture”

They provide high-quality mental health services in 16 states and are always hiring new clinicians to provide even more services in even more states. It isn’t easy. It isn’t quick.

We have been to so many places in the last month!! The month started with a trip through Virginia to see our families. We went to Lynchburg, Williamsburg, Chesapeake and Richmond then on to West Virginia for a few weeks. We really are starting to feel the cost of these airbnbs. Yikes. Monthly rentals are starting to seem more appealing, price wise. We got to try skiing on artificial turf and I got to visit Niagra Falls for the first time! 💕

“Here's what I have to say, because I struggled for a long time, just like a lot of people with what makes you legitimate. And I always thought, growing that group practice and having that office of buckling clinicians was success. And I realized really quickly as I got more experience in the field, that that's not really what was in alignment with what was healthy for me professionally, or personally”

In today’s episode, we have Andrea Shipley. She is an LPC and a nomadic therapist who built her own private counseling practice, sold her house, and converted a 2002 Thomas school bus into her traveling home office. She’s been exploring and working from the road since 2019 and doesn’t have plans to settle down any time soon. Andrea also created a small group coaching program where she helps people imagine, design, strategize, and build the lifestyles of their dreams … while enjoying the ride.  Listen to this episode as she shares her journey and her program called “Lifestyle Design” 

“So like, relative to any other life I've ever lived, I feel pretty good in this one, I feel more free in this lifestyle, I feel more in control of my life than I have when I've worked for other people. And I'm getting the variety and the experiences that are really important to me. It’s not perfect, but it's really working pretty well.”
