Conversations With a Wounded Healer

Who’s a wounded healer? It’s any one of us who works in a caring profession and is bravely doing their own work, while helping others. My goal is to share the parallel journey we as healers walk along with our clients and how we attend to our own humanity while caring for others.

My podcast is about conversations and community building, what we can learn from each other, and how we can help heal each other. We’re cultivating a space where we celebrate vulnerability, authenticity and “showing up.”

It’s a place to meet people I think will inspire you, help you heal and grow – and who you can relate to at the same time.

I’m inspired by C.G. Jung’s “wounded healer” concept, where the healer’s own hurt that gives the measure of his own power to heal.

Another one of my heroes, Brené Brown, puts it best: “Mindfully practicing authenticity during our most soul-searching struggles is how we invite grace, joy and gratitude into our lives.”

Together, I hope this marriage of vulnerability and professionalism will inspire and entertain you...enjoy!

Heyyy, burnt-out practice owner! Yeah, you, the one who’s overburdened, under-resourced, and lonely. The practice owner who thinks that no one understands their particular pain.

I feel you. I know you. I WAS you.

Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Burnt Out Practice Owner (BOPO). I’m Sarah Buino, a heart-centered, liberation-minded consultant helping individuals, groups, and organizations in the therapy field evolve with courage, authenticity, and vulnerability. I’m also the creator and co-host of Conversations With A Wounded Healer.

Most importantly, I’m a former, frazzled practice owner who’s gone through all the highs and lows associated with creating, nurturing, and selling a business. Now I’m here to help you navigate your practice journey via quick (30 minutes or less) episodes, between our usual Wounded Healer episodes.

Buckle up! I’m transparent as hell about my experiences––be they successes or slip-ups––and not shy about sharing. Hell, in this episode alone, I talk about burnout-induced suicidal thoughts, co-dependency, the practice valuation process, and my final sale price! 

There are a million questions associated with practice ownership, so tell me, what do you wish you’d known last year or even last week? Are you contemplating opening a new practice or expanding the team? Are you struggling to maintain a self-care routine? Or are you considering an exit strategy? 

Let’s explore the answers together, one episode at a time.

If you have a burning question or a topic that you'd like to hear discussed on this series, email me at or send me a DM on Instagram @headheartbiztherapy.

Burnt Out Practice Owner Support Group

Hey Practice Owners!

Do you feel exhausted, over-extended, and under-appreciated? 
Does the thought of returning to solo practice cross your mind from time to time (or more often)?

If so, you’re not alone. 

Running a group practice is a challenging and often thankless job. And it can be hard for others to relate if they aren’t business owners too.

Join our support group starting January 2024:
