Divorcing a Narcissist: Our Interview with Attorney Robert Farzad

farzadlawAt the request of our global listening audience we began our search for an attorney that would be willing to join Mental Health News Radio to discuss the topic of narcissism. Many of our listeners are attempting to divorce their narcissistic partner only to find themselves in a maze of legalese they do not understand and often working with an attorney that is not well-versed in cases of narcissistic abuse. 

Robert Farzad practices marriage and family law in Orange County, California. He has published multiple blog articles on the topic of divorcing a narcissist. He’s graciously accepted our invitation to discuss the unique aspects involving these kinds of cases. Please join us in welcoming him on our show.

Telepracticing in Behavioral Telehealth: An Interview with Dr. Marlene Maheu

marlene3I met today’s guest at the annual Samaritan Institute behavioral health conference. We were both session speakers and excited to collaborate in any way possible to support the sector of healthcare we are both immensely passionate about. My first thought after listening to Dr. Marlene Maheu was, “Why haven’t I met this powerhouse in person yet? She is the thought leader in telemental health.” Spend five minutes with her and you begin to grasp how much influence, passion, leadership and knowledge Dr. Maheu has about behavioral health in general but especially telebehavioral health. Take this journey with us to discover from the Executive Director of the Telemental Health Institute where technology is headed in relation to online behavioral health counseling.

Behavioral Health Compliance: An Interview with Theresa Wray, LMFT

139SCS_logoToday we interview business owner, clinician, and consultant Theresa Wray of Synergy Consulting Services. A rare and exciting connection for us because of one major factor: Theresa loves finding needles in haystacks. In fact, she excels at it. All of the necessary yet hair pulling work that counselors and Behavioral Health organizations dread to do are actually fun for Theresa.  Things like reading your Managed Care contracts, auditing your charts, reviewing compliance plans, and verifying state regulations.  Enjoy getting to know her during our interview on Mental Health News Radio.  More importantly, enjoy getting to know what she can do for your Behavioral Health organization.

How Do Counselors Inspire to Aspire: An Interview with Annie Shaw

Inspire_Counseling_Logo_SMALL

The reason we started Mental Health News Radio was to give those serving behavioral health a voice. We are the listeners. We are also caregivers. We wanted a platform where your voices could be heard. Where an audience of your peers can listen to your stories. Stories about what inspired you to become a therapist, open your own practice, or work in a community mental health center, what your specialties are, what tools and services you use to maintain your clinical records, and how you take care of yourself.

There is no doubt you will enjoy this next show. Our entire team was inspired just listening to our guest Annie Shaw. She is a perfect example of why we love hosting Mental Health News Radio.
