“Say More About That” Show Notes: Episode #48 – Hard conversations therapists have with clients

Jeff Guenther, MS, LPC on Jan 26, 2020 in Say More About That

Today I am joined by Julie Jeske, LPC. We're talking about all the hard conversations we are sometimes forced to have with our clients. Everything from telling them you forgot to show up, to how awkward it was when they saw you naked at the spa, to how you don't think you're helping and they should see another counselor and so much more. Enjoy our candid and cringe worthy episode!
