All Things Private Practice Podcast

All Things Private Practice Podcast is where we dive deep into the gritty, unfiltered world of being a mental health entrepreneur and a private practice therapist. Join us as we explore the emotional roller coaster of this wild journey, tackling the raw and unapologetic aspects that often go unspoken. In each episode, we fearlessly dissect self-doubt, resilience, impostor syndrome, and paralyzing perfectionism.

Patrick Casale is an Autistic ADHD licensed clinical mental health therapist, group practice owner, coach, consultant, speaker, retreat host, and entrepreneur. He interviews industry experts to share their stories of resilience, and to offer "how-tos" to help support their entrepreneurial journeys.

There is no sugar-coating here. This is where we get down and dirty, exposing the messy reality that comes with building your own mental health private practices. Hosted in an interview-style format, we bring you authentic conversations with entrepreneurs who have wrestled with their challenges and emerged victorious. We delve into their stories of triumph, failure, and everything in between. Prepare yourself for unfiltered tales of blood, sweat, and tears, as our guests share their journeys of self-discovery and growth.

It's time to strip away the glossy facade and embrace the rawness that lies beneath the surface. We challenge societal norms, smash through glass ceilings, and unapologetically question the status quo. Brace yourself for a podcast that isn't afraid to confront the messy reality head-on. Tune in every Saturday as we release new episodes, igniting your entrepreneurial fire and propelling you forward on your private practice odyssey.

This is the All Things Private Practice Podcast, where authenticity meets audacity, and the road to success is paved with resilience.
