Podcast 31: Creating Programs that Serve Your Clients

There comes a point in the private practice journey when you’re ready for more. A new way to serve your clients, and a different lifestyle for yourself. It’s not that you don’t love private practice, it’s just that you are ready to serve the world in a bigger, bolder way.

That’s the journey today’s guest, Dr. Stephanie May, took, along with her business partner, Dr. Jen Nardozzi, when they formed Aliveness Programs. They were each in private practice, serving clients with eating disorders and body image struggles, and they realized that their clients needed more. They wanted to better meet the needs of their clients, and serve the world in a bigger way.

As former clients of mine, I’ve had the privilege of being part of this amazing program they’ve built. They now serve clients all over the world; changing lives far beyond the few they can see each week in private practice. They haven’t just built a successful business. They’ve built it from a true place of service and commitment to making a difference in the lives of their clients.

In this episode, Stephanie shares:

  • How to identify a need for your clients and how to design a program around that
  • The importance of committing to our own aliveness
  • How to prepare to handle new client calls
  • What’s worked (and what hasn’t) with marketing
  • Her most effective marketing strategy
  • How to share your mission in everything you do

Growing up in a family that didn’t seem to “work,” I  have personally experienced the pain of emotional eating.  Seeking to fill the void I felt, I used food to try and feel “full” for many years within my young adult life.  Body shame, bingeing and over-exercising were my go-to methods until I entered grad school and knew I had to make a change.  I began the deep, inner work along with my clinical studies and became my first client, finally freeing myself from an unhealthy relationship with food and my body, as well as other unhealthy relationship patterns.  

With a Doctorate in Psychology and certified in IMAGO Relationship Therapy, I have a successful private practice in Coral Gables, Florida. For over a decade, I have helped people transform their relationship with food so they are confident catalysts in their own life.  Realizing that more people needed to experience the freedom and transformation I provide, I teamed up with Dr. Jen Nardozzi and am now dedicated to bringing our work to a larger, global audience through Aliveness Programs.

I truly understand what it is like to search for a better, more effective way of living and I have  participated in a number of outside personal development experiences including backpacking the mountains of Colorado and attending experiential personal development workshops. Lastly, but primarily, I am a proud wife and mother of 2 boys, as well as a practicing Yogi…always continuing my spiritual journey, and dedicated to making difficult concepts simpler for others to understand.
