Wounded healer---it’s a term used frequently in our field, and one that resonates deeply with so many therapists. Time and time again, we hear of those drawn to the therapy field because of a desire to help others, which comes as an outgrowth of dealing with our personal pain. Today’s show is about the “wounded healer” in private practice and how we create a successful practice while owning our pain.

Tacha Kasper, MFT Associate, has battled chronic pain and illness for over 12 years. Add to that the fact that she’s a breast cancer survivor, and you’ll see that she has a wealth of knowledge about our topic. Formerly in the corporate world, Tacha transitioned to counseling because of her health concerns and the overriding desire to use her experiences to help others heal from their pain. Join us to hear more from Tacha!
