Do you ever struggle with boundaries? As a therapist, your care and empathy can lead you to burnout unless you have some strategies to support your self-care.

In today's episode:

  • Don't do this. A cautionary tale from the early days of my private practice
  • Why it's hard to set boundaries in private practice
  • How to reframe your thoughts so you can say no
  • Strategies to explain your boundaries to clients
  • Ideas for reinforcing boundaries

Remember: you can be a kind person and still say no!
