In spite of achieving early success in her private practice, she describes a low point where she focused a lot on developing retreats for women and neglected her therapy practice. As a result, she lost a lot of clients and had to be very vulnerable as she got help to build things back up again. She learned the hard way to put consistent effort into her practice to keep it going.

Kaela talked about building her practice in her 20's and worked very hard to build it in the first 2 years until she had a full caseload. She understood that having two niches - one focused on relationships and one focused on eating disorders would be more challenging than having only one. However, Kaela didn't want to focus solely on an eating disorder niche as she felt that her work would be more balanced if she had two. Kaela talks in detail about how she built her practice, how she surrounded herself with mentors, and didn't always have a balanced life in the early years when she was building her practice.  You can access the show notes for the interview here: http://julietaustin.com/bb6
