HELP FOR THE HELPERS Episode 11: Mindfullness and Your Career with Viki Stith
Any other helpers out there that are prone to fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants decision making? How about staying paralyzed in one place, opting not to try new things even when we know our current situation isn’t the right fit? Ignoring our intuition because of fear, doubt, or insecurity? No? Just me? I talk this week with Viki Stith, a woman who has all the regular fears and insecurities as the rest of us, but who trusts and listens to her gut in order to make decisions, resulting in a very cool career as a helper that’s moved at an extraordinary speed. Her personal work with Buddhism and mindfulness has shaped how she approaches her career. She is a force, to be sure! Victoria Stith uses mindfulness and other evidence-based practices to help parents of addicted adult children find peace of mind and freedom from suffering, while being compassionate and loving parents. She is also a licensed psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in mid-life transitions, anxiety, and stress-related issues.

HELP FOR THE HELPERS Episode 7: I Knew It Would Be an Uphill Battle with Nicole Bixler
Feeling like we’re doing something important and meaningful is a cornerstone of helping work. Feeling as though we are completely aligned with our mission, and are carrying it out everyday, is the hallmark of a personal calling. In this episode I talk with Nicole Bixler, an innovative helping professional who started her own nonprofit in Philadelphia to fill the holes she saw in services being provided to sex workers and substance users in the area.

OPIMBY also provides meals and scholarships for sober living if people ask for assistance. Basic wound care is provided by OPIMBY as well as education of safer use practices and free Narcan.

HELP FOR THE HELPERS Episode 2: One Cannot Exist Without the Other (Joshua Alvarez)
In this episode I talk with my friend Josh Alvarez about his commitment to investing in his creative outlets (music and podcasting) while working in the helping professions. Josh beautifully illustrates the importance of maintaining creativity in balance with compassion, and he highlights the ways we can find bits and snippets of time to cultivate creativity in our daily lives. A note from Josh: Hello! My name is Josh Alvarez & Dana asked me to be on her podcast. Now, you may be asking yourself how Dana managed to get the internationally ignored song stylist & podcaster barely standing before you for this episode of Help for the Helpers, but the answer is really quite simple: she is the best & one would be a fool to deny her request to chitchat. In addition to the aforementioned jobs of “singer” & “podcaster”, I’m also a mental health technician on an acute inpatient psych unit. Josh’s music can be found at CROSSED KEYS and his SOLO project. He is the cohost on the Cinepunx podcast. He can be found on Instagram at @joeyangel and on Twitter here I’m launching an exciting program THIS JANUARY to help other helping professionals get out of student loan debt, like I did, in order to free themselves from PSLF and agency work and allow them to pursue what they love without financial binds.
