Rachel Inberg is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and writer from New York. She regularly treats incest survivors, drug addicts, and victims of gang violence. She has spent ten years in school learning how to care for other people; her writing is the result of her learning to care for herself.

Rachel's nonfiction and poetry have appeared in the Huffington Post, The Rumpus, Panoply Zine and the Narratively and Tin House collection "Memoir Mondays." David Simon, creator of "The Wire" and HBO's "The Deuce" has called Rachel's work "...painful, powerful, and honest."

Rachel and Sarah talk about impostor syndrome, connection as the most important aspect of healing, and how becoming a mental health professional led to a greater understanding of how to help oneself.
