Welcome to my die hard listeners and those of you who have recently discovered Therapy Chat! Click to listen to a message for you

I'm Laura Reagan, a clinical social worker who started a podcast, Therapy Chat (actually, it was then called The Baltimore Annapolis Psychotherapy Podcast), almost 3 years ago. Therapy Chat is about the practice of psychotherapy, as well as mindfulness, relationships, self compassion, trauma, perfectionism, and whatever else is on my mind that day. Since therapists seldom talk about what happens in therapy sessions outside of the treatment room, I thought people would enjoy being a "fly on the wall," maybe to learn more about different types of therapy, whether you're a potential client or a therapist.

As I write this Therapy Chat has been on air for almost 3 years and downloaded almost a million times! It's been a lot of hard work and it's worth it, but I need your help to keep it going! Most podcasts fade out within the first six months and I'm proud that I've been able to keep this one going. Will you become a member to help me sustain Therapy Chat?

Currently I'm producing a weekly show which takes at least 20 hours of my time per month between research, planning, contacting potential interviewees, coordinating and scheduling interviews, editing, promoting and all of the other work that goes into creating Therapy Chat. I have a producer who I pay to edit the show but I do the rest. I really need an assistant to help me with coordinating interviews and the post-production work that my sound engineer doesn't do.

I LOVE what I'm doing and I'm so grateful to be able to reach thousands of people, more than I ever could one by one in my therapy practice. I believe that people are learning more about themselves, their emotional responses, and how psychotherapy, mindfulness, self-compassion and holistic practices can help them overcome the effects of trauma. In fact, I know this because I receive e-mails from people daily telling me so. However, I'm only one person and I have to run my therapy practice day in and day out, because this is the job that pays me! Your donations will help me offset some of the podcasting costs of time, production, equipment and hiring support staff to make sure everything gets done that needs to be done. I want to continue offering a quality show, and improving it over time, and your donations will help.

If each of my subscribers donated only one dollar per month it would cover the costs of production and allow me to make more time to work on this podcast. If everyone who listens pledged one dollar per month I would be able to cut back my hours in my practice to spend more time creating quality content by devoting one day per week to podcasting. And I'd be able to do more to support my own self care, something I talk about frequently on Therapy Chat but can't always practice in my own life. Support above one dollar per month will enable me to devote time to creating courses and webinars to correspond with what is covered on Therapy Chat. I can't wait to see what Therapy Chat will be able to do with your support! Thanks for taking the time to consider becoming a member of Therapy Chat!

When the first $5000 is received, I’ll be able to hire an assistant to help with the back end of the podcast. This will make the process of researching, scheduling and coordinating guests, as well as the time spent on promotion, work much more smoothly than it does at present!
