counseling private practice

Smidgens are quick, short, inspiring thoughts done in a podcast format, without all the fluff. They’re a way for me to quickly express thoughts, ideas, or musings. They will come out randomly and without much promo.

Smidgens with Joe will be just that, something to get you thinking, as if we had 5 minutes together and I was sharing my thoughts. Instead of taking time to produce a long podcast, with new music, and tons of links, I’m going to take some time to quickly record ideas and advice while I’m in odd situations like being stuck in traffic, walking somewhere, or waiting between appointments. They will come out randomly, maybe quite a few at a time and then none for a while. They will hopefully still cover everything you should have learned in grad school!
